Private Coaching

Private Coaching is one of New Generation’s most popular coaching formats. Your instructor will ski with you one-on-one, or with up to six skiers (for a day ski guiding for example). Prices vary depending on the number of skiers wanting to share a session; we recommend that private ski coaching is limited to four skiers maximum, particularly if you are looking for targeted input on your technique, confidence or winter skills for more experienced skiers.

New Generation Private Coaching Prices
2 hours 139 € (1-2 skiers)
3 hours 199 € (1-2 skiers)
4 hours 269 € (1-2 skiers)
6 hours 369 € (1-6 skiers)
Note that there is a supplement of 10 € per hour for each additional skier.

Technical Clinics (3-6 skiers)

Technical Clinics are on offer for adults and teenagers who are ‘intermediates’ and above. Over two sessions, usually in the afternoons and on alternate days, skiers enjoy focused attention on their technique and are sent away to ‘do a bit of homework on the mountain’ inbetween their sessions. These clinics can also run as three two-hour sessions starting at 09:15, 11:30 or 14:00 (off-peak only).

New Generation Technical Clinic Prices
5 hours (2 x 2.5 hours) 119 €
6 hours (3 x 2 hours) 139 €

Intro Sessions (1-5 skiers)

Everyone who has skied a while fancies a little push or challenge to perfect their technique or try something new. New Generation’s Intro sessions do just that. Choose from carving, off-piste, bumps, steeps and avalanche safety. Gather a few members of your family or a small group of friends together to create your own Intro Session!

New Generation Intro Session Prices
3 hours 79 €
Note that the session shortens to 1.5 hours if only one skier books.

Adult Group Ski Courses (2-8 skiers)

New Generation’s group ski courses run with just two skiers as a minimum, and eight skiers max. It’s worth noting however that the average number of skiers in the groups is just three. Clients often remark how these group sessions feel like private lessons! Group courses are usually five two-hour sessions over a week, starting Sunday or Monday.
