What to do if the morning ski lessons you want are fully booked?
Ski lessons are available to book well in advance (our prices and availability are released in May) and it is advisable to get them booked sooner rather than later at the risk of finding yourself spending your holiday building snowmen and sledging (which can be fun too, of course). At Oxygene, demand is high so morning group lessons during Christmas and February half-term holidays are often fully booked from October. That said, we can offer you some alternatives…
1. Afternoon group lessons:
- Afternoon group lessons are often less expensive and groups are generally smaller than in the morning
- Afternoon lessons allow you to do other things in the morning (perhaps even have a lie-in?) whilst the slopes are busy with people
- The slopes are quieter in the afternoon
- The lift queues are shorter
- The snow is softer (and therefore more forgiving for beginners)
2. Book a lunchtime private lesson:
- Private lessons are adapted to your needs
- As a result, you will progress more quickly than in a group
- The slopes are quiet as most people are having lunch
- You can put your coaching into practice in the afternoon and take it easy the morning
3. What could you do in the morning instead?
- Explore the resort and shops while it’s busy on the slopes
- Visit the swimming pool
- Go iceskating (in Méribel or Megeve)
- Snowshoe under the falling snow or the shining sun to discover the resort
- See Grand Bornand, Meribel and Courchevel like never before, book a tandem paragliding flight and fly like a bird.
- Take a guided tour to learn the history of an old mountain village (in Val d’Isère or in St Martin de Belleville) and learn the secrets of the resort whilst strolling through it.
Don’t write off your ski holiday because you didn’t manage to secure morning ski lessons. Our beautiful mountains and resorts hold many more pleasures and while you’re up in resort, don’t miss the chance to explore them.
