Family Lessons2022-07-30T11:59:35+02:00

Do you as a family want to make as much as possible of your vacation in Sierra Nevada? Well, you can take a lesson with your whole family. It doesn’t matter what experience, level or skills you have.

Our teachers will make the best out of your holiday and you will definitely get a lot of quality time with your friends or family.

We always make an individual evaluation of the group when we are starting a lesson, and keep in mind that it’s very likely that you will be on different levels.

Our teachers will be aware of that and still make you have the time of your life and a lot of progress. This might mean that we split the group at some part of the lesson, but this always depends on level, number of persons, age of kids (if any) and many other factors.

Example: A family of four is having a family lesson with our school. The parents have been skiing before, but it was a long time ago. The 2 kids, aged 8 and 6 are first timers.

First of all the teacher will take them to the nursery area to to get the kids going. At the same time the parents will be there and the instructor will give them exercises to remember the basics. Meanwhile they can enjoy watching their kids doing their first snow plough.

Once things start rollin and the kids are controlling, the teacher might take one of the parents up in the chair to be on a bigger hill and improve turns and control. In the mean time, the kids might have a little break, or continuing practicing, with the other parent. Afterwards, if the instructor see the other parent fit, she or he might take him/her on a solo run as well. Once all are back together it’s likely the parents need a few minutes break and the instructor is likely to take the kids for a solo run. Eventually, the whole family will be able to go to the chair together with the instructor and they will all make a faster progress.

* This is only an example. Every lesson will be designed individually, depending of ages, skills and number of people in the group.

In the family lessons you will get to see how your kids make their first snow plough or first turn. We guarantee that the instructor will give you a great time and he or she will work every minute of the lesson to make you progress and enjoy as much as possible.

For these family lessons we have set a minimum of three hours. Still we recommend more time to get even better value for your money.

What is the difference between a family lesson and a group lesson?2021-07-15T11:27:38+02:00

In the family lessons it’s very likely that the members of the group have different levels, while in the group lessons everybody has a similar level.

We do prefer that you have similar skills/levels if you book a private group lesson. If not, the learning process is going to take a bit longer time and you are better off with a family lesson, even if you just are going with a few friends.

For the group lesson we have set a minimum of 2h, while the minimum length of a family lesson is 3h.

I’m a first timer/beginer. Do I have to buy a ski pass?2021-06-30T11:51:31+02:00

Yes, you do. Begginer slopes and moving carpets are located in Borreguiles area. To access that area and use lifts and carpets, you need to buy a lift pass.

What happens with my lift pass if the ski lifts are closed?2021-06-30T10:14:51+02:00

If the ski lifts are closed you’ll get a full refund for you lesson. You will also get a refund for your lift pass from Cetursa. For that you need to go to the ticket windows located at “Plaza de Andalucia”.

Is there any locker/equipment storage at the ski resort?2021-06-30T11:00:30+02:00

Yes, there are two storage areas: one is located in Pradollano (behind the “Al-Andalus” gondola) and the other one is in Borreguiles (inside “Borreguiles” gondola gallery). Check prices and exact location here.

Is there any daycare/crèche center at the ski resort?2021-12-31T14:30:35+01:00

There are several options for families who travel with children:

  • Pradollano Children’s Play Center (“El Cole de la nieve”): from 4 months to 6 years old.
  • “Family Kids Club”: from 3 to 12 years old.
  • “Children’s Alpine Garden”: from 3 to 5 years old.

Check prices and locations here.



What does it mean that the family lessons have a flat rate?2021-06-23T19:19:45+02:00

It means that price is the same whether you are 3, 4, 5 or 6. It only depends on the number of hours you book.

We want to book a group lesson. Should we all have the same level?2021-07-03T09:21:05+02:00

It’s better if you are on a similar level to get out as much as possible of your lesson. If you not are on a similar level and still want to have class together we recommend you to book a family lesson instead. Even if you not are family.

Do you offer discounts?2021-06-23T19:33:10+02:00

We value our instructors as qualified professionals and we believe they do a fantastic job. Our prices are fixed and set to be able to offer them the salary we think they deserve

Can you buy the lift pass (forfait) for me?2021-12-10T20:03:06+01:00

Our school offers a lift ticket (forfait) collection service. 

To avoid possible queues at the ticket offices, we can organize the lift passes on your behalf. The tickets will be ready for collection at your arrival at “Deportes Jose Luis Sáez” rental store (located 40m from the main Gondola lift Al-Andalus). 

Contact us if you need lift passes together with your lessons. 

What does it mean that group lessons have a fixed rate?2022-01-15T20:26:41+01:00

Prices shown are not per person, but for the whole group. The price of a group lesson is the same whether you are 3, 4, 5 or 6. It only depends on the number of hours you book.

Can I cancel my lesson?2021-06-30T08:22:07+02:00

Yes you can, but we need to know it 7 days in advance. Any cancelation made within 7 days of the first class date will result in a total loss of the deposit paid (50% reservation).

If the ski lifts are closed you’ll get a full refund for you lesson.

What should children bring to the lesson?2021-07-03T09:11:55+02:00

Except for the ski gear, skis and boots you child must wear a helmet. We don’t accept lesson with children without a helmet. We do strongly recommend EVERYONE to wear a helmet. Apart from that sunblock and sunglasses are absolutely necessary for everyone. The sun is extremely strong at this altitude in the snow and so far south.

How do we organize de lesson? Do I need to call you after I book it online?2021-06-23T19:32:19+02:00

No, you don’t have to. We will send you all necessary information by e-mail (our meeting point, your schedule, a voucher to rent your equipment…) In case we need something else we will contact you. If you have some questions you are always welcome to contact us of course.

Please don’t print your booking confirmation (our instructors have the schedule in advance). You can bring the confirmation e-mail on your phone, just to make sure that we not are messing anything up.

Where can I rent my equipment?2022-02-05T18:53:25+01:00

We recommend “Alquiler Esquís Jose Luis Sáez” (check location and contact details here). It’s a family run rental shop conveniently located in front of Sierra Nevada offices (40m from both cable cars). No need to pre-book.

Show our booking confirmation to receive a 20% discount off the equipment/clothes rental price. Young children will receive a helmet to use free of charge.

Note: though poles are included in the price, we do not recommend using them if you are a beginner.
