The school offer the following:

  • Group courses for adults and kids, for beginners to intermediates (2-¬8 per group)

  • Private lessons for individuals or private groups of all levels
  • Guided adventures - try something new or explore the Espace Killy

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.

For 20 years, New Generation have been helping British skiers, of every ability, improve and get the best out of their holiday. To do this, they put great emphasis on employing only the top, fully-qualified instructors.

A private lesson can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Coaching or guiding, on- or off-piste, you decide. 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; 2.5hr; 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. 
  • Guided Adventure - Experience the whole ski area with your instructor who is there to help you find the best snow, and restaurants!
  • 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

  • “Our children had the time of their life with Davide in Tignes. After just 3 days and 6 hours of lessons they were flying down the blue runs with Davida in a confident, Safe manner. Can we book you for next year now??” - Feefo
  • “New Generation Ski were fantastic! I couldn't fault a single thing. Marta and Davide were amazing teachers. Patient, fun, skilled and always encouraging, It was my first time on skis and by the end of the week I was happily enjoying red runs and had even attempted a small slalom course!” - Feefo
  • “All the staff, from office to slopes have been amazing. My kids have come on so much after 1 week with New Gen. Five stars.” - 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

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.
