Our philosophy on the slopes is “Ride and Smile is the best way to learn”, matching the technique you need to the adventure you crave, so you can improve your skiing at a pace which suits you.

Enjoy a ski day with your beloved family! By joining one of our lessons, you can book a teacher for the whole family without any extra charge. We understand that families sometimes would rather not ski together 100% of the time because there might be differences in ski levels, so the family ski teacher will give you total flexibility on how your day will be at the slopes while also providing insider tips such as the best spot to have a break, the perfect place for lunch or for meeting up during the day.
PRIVATE SKI LESSONS
Ride and Smile works with private classes because we believe it is the best way to learn how to ski. Whether it is with your family, a group of friends or even just by yourself, one-on-one classes with the instructor are an opportunity to work on specific techniques and allow people to ski without worries, just having fun! You will also have the ski instructor’s full attention and be able to get safety tips specifically for your skills and preferences.
- PRIVATE SKI LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS
To guarantee success in any sport, it is very important to pay extra attention at the beginning. The first contact with skiing has to be pleasurable and provided with the proper techniques to raise your level of confidence and knowledge necessary for rapid improvement!
- PRIVATE SKI LESSONS FOR KIDS
Kids learn differently than grownups. With Ride and Smile for kids, children have so much fun learning how to ski that they do not even realize they are taking a class. All classes are taught in a natural and playful way.
