Private lessons2022-07-30T11:56:48+02:00


We consider the lessons with a maximum of two people for private.

Service and teaching couldn’t be more personalized and all attention goes directly to you. No distractions and the teacher can focus and transmit all of his or hers energy directly on you.

Depending on your level and preferences, we will put you together with the perfect instructor to make sure you get absolutely the most out of your time. The instructor will tailor the lesson to your skills, previous experience and even to your personality. We have set the minimum for a private lesson to 1 hour. That can be good if you want to have a refresher. However, it’s very advisable to take at least 2 hours even if you have been skiing before.

Note: as a general rule (but of course depending on each individual), for a total beginner it takes about 2 hours to learn how to stop and control the speed on the nursery slope. In some cases, you can even start to turn a little bit (more likely to turn better one way than the other). We never take anyone to the bigger slopes before we know that they are in control.

Having fun while learning and enjoying the gliding experience while making a lot of progress, is something you can take for granted . The skills you achieve will last for a lifetime.

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.
