How much do ski lessons cost?

Ski lessons come with varying price tags, so let's break it down:

Group lessons tend to be less expensive than private lessons as you are sharing the instructor with other people. The others in your group will of course be of a similar ability and it is often a great way to meet new people and learn from each other at the same time.

Private lessons are more expensive as you will be hiring the instructor just for you or a group of your own family/ friends. Private lessons are great as they are tailored completely to your needs! You will have the full attention of the instructor to focus on your own progression and development.

If you wish to learn more about the difference between group and private lessons see the article ‘Exploring Private vs Group ski lessons’.

The prices for ski lessons also vary between ski schools, countries and individual instructors. If the classes have a lower maximum number of participants the lessons are often slightly more expensive than if the school allows more participants per class. 

As a general rule, afternoon lessons, whether private or group, tend to be more budget-friendly.

Independent instructors can sometimes be more expensive than private lessons provided by a ski school. The independent instructors are not part of a school and therefore set their own prices for their time. The benefit of an independent instructor is that you can choose exactly who you want based on their profile and they often specialise in particular aspects of the sport. They normally offer a more tailored experience, providing exceptional service.
