With a private lesson with a British ski school in the Alps costing more than £50 per hour, learning to ski or board at Bowles before your holiday works out at fantastic value, meaning you’ll be able to hit the slopes on day one of your holiday.

We don’t currently offer snowboard courses due to low demand, but we still offer private snowboard lessons. Drop us an email or call to see what we have available.

Children’s Ski Courses (6-8s)

Three part courses running on Saturday mornings 9.00am to 10.45am, or 11.00am to 12.45pm, we aim to teach children the basics of skiing – how to use the equipment and the lift, side-stepping and snowploughing.

We try our best to get kids up to the necessary standard for Kids Club so that they can practice their skills, but this isn’t always possible and sometimes a further lesson or two is required (See Development Courses, below).

Group sizes are a maximum of 8 and cost £70. See also School Holiday Courses for other 6-8s lessons.

Development Courses

Aimed at people who have completed a course or set of private lessons who can ski in control and are planning on coming to Open Practice or Kids Club.

They will run for two hours immediately prior to Kids Club and Open Practice and then include a third hour on the slope for those sessions.

The aim is to ensure people are confident with the main slope and lift before they take part in a less-structured session with other slope users. These courses are in response to feedback and are by no means compulsory before coming to an open session.

Cost: £25 for 6-15s, £30 for adults. Includes an hour at Open Practice or Kids Club.

Christmas holidays and February half term

Drop your kids off with us and let our expert instructors teach them new skills in a friendly, safe environment. For all-day courses they’ll need a packed lunch. All-day courses cost £55 each, but if you book two at the same time they’ll cost £85, a saving of £15. Half day courses are £30 – book two for £55.

(All courses are for beginners and will cover the same progression. Please do not book more than one day for a child. For more advanced lessons visit our Private Lessons page).
