Private Ski Lessons

Whether it’s making the jump from green to blue runs or tackling challenging black runs & off piste terrain. Each ski lesson is tailor made for your needs. Using the latest techniques and the most up to date teaching aides (such as video analysis), all in terms and language you will understand. Lift queue priority will ensure you spend optimum time skiing and not hanging around.

Change Your Ski Experience

With a traditional ski school there is always an element of risk, you are never sure what sort of ski lessons you are going to get, large groups, a mixture of different levels and nationalities, combined with the uncertainty that your ski instructor might not even speak your language. This doesn't have to be the only way, with Insight there is a choice, we offer a different approach to learning to ski. We specialise in small groups or private lessons which ensures that you get a lot more personal tuition time for your money. We believe in evolving the ski lessons around you and your specific needs.

As a British B.A.S.I qualified ski instructor using up to date teaching techniques and always endeavouring to make lessons fun, Darren will guarantee results.

Darren has been teaching skiing for 17 years, in four countries and two continents and was a member of the England Ski Team. For the last six years he has been instructing in Serre Chevalier, France. He holds the highest B.A.S.I qualification – the international ski teaching diploma and believes enjoyment and learning are strongly interlinked.

    Have just returned from a week in Tignes with the Ski Club of Great Britain. Darren taught a small group (7) of us for two days. The difference it made to my skiing was remarkable. Individual analysis and individual solutions ensured I and all the rest of the group made rapid progress, grew in confidence and had a thoroughly enjoyable and positive time. The two days tuition mirrored the intermediate app so I now have that on my phone to refer to again... and again... and again. Quite excellent in all respects. Thank-you Darren

    Just wanted to say thanks for making me enjoy skiing again! Finished the week doing just about all parallel turns.

    Darren is a great instructor; both my husband and I improved beyond belief after just two lessons. He made the technique of skiing so easy, I only wish I could have a mini Darren skiing with me everyday. More importantly he made me laugh while I was skiing which is almost an impossibility. I would recommend Darren every time, keep up the good work Darren !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When I first turned up for a lesson I was sceptical as always; was my skiing ever going to improve or had I reached the peak of my ability? Within 30 minutes of being on the slope with Darren my whole stance had changed. I felt more comfortable and much more in control. My confidence improved and suddenly it started to feel "right" - what's more I actually understood where I had been going wrong. Darren's simple instructions were easy to follow and made total sense. For the first time ever I actually felt like I could ski by the end of my holiday. Thank you for all you did and please save some time for me next year!
