So whether you're looking for technical ski coaching, an off piste adventure or to find the best mountain restaurant, they've got it covered. 

The school offer the following:

  • Group courses for adults and kids, for beginners to intermediates (2-¬5 per group)
  • Developer sessions for intermediates to advanced (1-6 people)
  • Private lessons for individuals or private groups of all levels

Private ski lessons
One of the best ways to learn a snowsport is to take private lessons. One-to-one coaching gives you the attention you need to improve and achieve your goals quickly. You can also share a lesson with friends of a similar level for great value for money.

A private lesson can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Private lessons are also great for developing particular skills such as bumps, off-piste, steeps, freestyle or carving. And if you want to go off-piste then New Generation can arrange your safety equipment and routes into the backcountry.

Lessons Available: 2hr; 3hr; 4hr; All day (6hrs)

Examples of how you could spend your session:

  • Off-Piste - Our instructors are qualified to teach & guide off-piste. The instructors can arrange safety equipment and routes into the backcountry. 
  • Personal Coach - An intensive session of personal coaching. You decide what you want to work on and your coach will help you to reach your goals.
  • Skills-based - Learn something new or develop a specific skill. Choose from Bumps, freestyle, carving or off-piste among other things.

Visitor comments

  • "My son Joseph had a great week in Verbier with Rory in his Freeride lesson. He improved technically on steep black moguls and his short turns. Always came back with a smile on his face! "  - Feefo
  • “My son and partner had a fantastic week with Sam, a true professional who was at ease with both adults and children. Although both were beginners, he gave them a huge amount of confidence with his relaxed and fun-filled approach and incredibly, by the end of the week, they were both skiing amazingly well! I was really impressed with New Generation and wouldn't hesitate to use them again!” - Feefo
  • “Fantastic service from the moment I made the enquiry to the end of my private lesson. Rich not only gave me my confidence back but my skiing improved more in 2 hours than it had with 3 days practicing on the slopes. My only regret is not booking a private lesson sooner. Can't thank Rich enough. Worth every penny.”  - Feefo
  • "Friendly and technically one of the best. Instructors are all of a very high standard as minimum allowing immediate concise learning and value for money. The time you chose for the duration of a lesson is based on time on the snow. A lot of travel can eat into your time, however this is not the case. We are repeat customers and for a good reason. A great brunch with some of the best skiers around. No complaints." - Feefo

Booking Arrangements

Child policy

They teach children from as young as 4 years in groups. For children in the Whippersnappers class (4-5 year olds) group sizes are limited to 6 and if there is more than 3 in a group they will try to provide an additional person to help the instructor. They ask that all children wear helmets and bring with them sun cream, protective eye-wear and a snack or money for a snack stop. They also operate a secure sign out system to make extra sure that every child is handed over to their parents.
