Les Menuires is a family ski resort located at the heart of Savoie, in the Tarentaise Valley. It is ideal for beginners but also for experienced skiers or those who want to experiment new glides. It is therefore suitable for both skiing on marked slopes and off-piste skiing. 

Prosneige Les Menuires is located in the center of the resort in the Croisette district. Our premises are very easily identifiable thanks to our large light green signs. You will therefore find us ideally placed, directly on the snow front! Within the ski school, you will find the counter where we will welcome you with pleasure. It is also there that you will have access to ski lockers to deposit your equipment if you do not want to carry it every day. Our 25 ski instructors spend a lot of time at the school and enjoy our sunny terrace before starting their lessons for the day. They are therefore available for you if you have the slightest question because that’s what the Prosneige service is all about : it’s above all about being close to our clients! Below our ski school is the Prosneige shop where you can get advice from our team of experts in rental, sales and bootfitting. There you will find all the equipment you need to make the most out of your holiday in Les Menuires resort (clothing, accessories, equipment, sledges, and much more !).

Our ski school offers group lessons which are group lessons but also private lessons (also called private lessons). The Prosneige Les Menuires ski school is not limited to skiing and snowboarding but offers lessons in a wide variety of disciplines (skiing, snowboarding, handiskiing, telemark, ski touring, etc.). Our lessons can be given in French, English, Dutch, Russian, Portuguese, Italian, Czech, German and many other languages. This, please do not hesitate to ask us if we have an instructor who speaks your language. Our team is international, and 17 languages are mastered by our instructors! Here we will discuss off-piste outings in private lessons. 


A private lesson is a lesson during which you privatize the instructor for yourself, your family, or your friends. Contrary to a group lesson, private lessons are tailored to your desires and your goals! You choose the duration of the lesson, the number of sessions over the week and the discipline : in this case off-piste. The instructor then takes care of planning the itinerary, safety, and equipment for this outing. You may want your instructor to have certain qualities : that he/she can communicate with you in your native language in particular, or at least a language you are comfortable using. At Prosneige, mastering languages is an essential criterion to be able to join our team of instructors! A total of 17 languages are spoken by all our instructors. Each of them must, of course, be fluent in French and English, but also at least a third language. Our instructors are therefore able to teach skiing in French, English, Dutch, Italian, German, Portuguese, Hebrew, Russian, etc. Do not forget to ask us, we are sure we have instructors who speak your language! This is both simpler and particularly important off-piste, to make sure that you have understood the safety instructions given by our instructors. Communication is key during an off-piste lesson !

You can also demand certain qualities from your instructor that you feel are essential to the success of your off-piste outing. A specialized, gentle, dynamic instructor, an instructor of more or less the same age as you, do not hesitate to ask for a type of profile that can match your personality! Even if all our instructors know how to adapt their teaching methods to our students, certain profiles are more likely to match your personality.  You are here to discover off-piste but also to have fun so be demanding. A good understanding between you and your instructor will allow you to enjoy your lessons even more in his company. Indeed, you need to create a relationship of trust with your instructor, especially when going off-piste. You should know that if you have found the instructor of your dreams at Prosneige, you will be able to continue taking lessons with him from one year to the next. Our instructors are always delighted to see your progress and follow you year after year. 


Off-piste private lessons also offer the advantage of great flexibility. Are you an early riser and want to enjoy fresh and immaculate snow off-piste ? Then a morning lesson will be perfect for you ! You are not an early riser at all ? Then a private lesson in the afternoon will be ideal. You decide the schedule, so you can organize your winter holiday in Les Menuires as you wish. It is possible to take lessons every day, every two days, or a single lesson during the week. The private lesson formula is very flexible and adapts to your schedule and wishes. It is possible to schedule a new lesson the day before for the next day, when conditions are optimal for example (fresh snow, low avalanche risk). It is also essential to be flexible when booking an off-piste outing as depending on the conditions it may be moved.
