Very well organised company; excellent admin and then superb teaching staff. Amy was superb, managing a 5 year old and an assortment of skiers/non skiers. Really helpful with finding great lunch spots, calming group worries and where the best hot chocolate is!

Great ski school in Saas Fee. Next to Rob helping me to get back on skis safely after 20 years, he did teach our 3 teenagers the basics of skiing... Patient, encouraging, friendly and with excellent results! A great experience worth a good recommendation
