New Generation Ski & Snowboard School, Val Thorens

Top quality coaching with 20 years experience.

Luke Gerrett started New Generation’s Val Thorens ski school in 2011 after several seasons teaching in Verbier and Val d’Isère.

New Gen is a British-run ski school with an international team of ski and snowboard instructors. Luke heads up the growing Val Thorens team of 7 fully qualified English speaking instructors who bring New Generation style and personality to kids and adult groups, private lessons and more.

They offer a wide range of ski lessons and adventures in Morzine from group lessons for tiny tots to off piste adventures, and everything in-between. All in English. All with big grins. So whatever your level, age, or ability they will help you build confidence, develop technique and have fun. You are on holiday after all! 

The school offer the following:

  • Group courses for adults and kids, for beginners to intermediates (2-¬8 per group)
  • Developer sessions for intermediates to advanced (1-6 people)
  • Private lessons for individuals or private groups of all levels
  • Guided adventures - try something new or explore the Three Valleys

Private ski lessons
One of the best ways to learn a snowsport is to take private lessons. One-to-one coaching gives you the attention you need to improve and achieve your goals quickly. You can also share a lesson with friends of a similar level for great value for money.

For 20 years, New Generation have been helping British skiers, of every ability, improve and get the best out of their holiday. To do this, they put great emphasis on employing only the top, fully-qualified instructors.  *remove last sentence about reviews

A private lesson can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Coaching or guiding, on- or off-piste, you decide. Private lessons are also great for developing particular skills such as bumps, off-piste, steeps, freestyle or carving. And if you want to go off-piste then New Generation can arrange your safety equipment and routes into the backcountry.

Lessons Available: 2hr; 2.5hr; 3hr; 4hr; All day (6hrs)

Examples of how you could spend your session:

  • Off-Piste - Our instructors are qualified to teach & guide off-piste. The instructors can arrange safety equipment and routes into the backcountry. 
  • Guided Adventure - Experience the whole ski area with your instructor who is there to help you find the best snow, and restaurants!
  • Personal Coach - An intensive session of personal coaching. You decide what you want to work on and your coach will help you to reach your goals.
  • Skills-based - Learn something new or develop a specific skill. Choose from Bumps, freestyle, carving or off-piste among other things.

Visitor comments

  • "We were thrilled with New Generation. Our daughters had never skied before. Luke, their instructor, made them feel confident and his enthusiasm was infectious. The girls loved skiing and are desperate to go again! I would definitely recommend New Generation; they were efficient and reliable." - Feefo
  • "My 9 year old son really enjoyed his lessons in the 'Bombers' class in Val Thorens, and his skiing and his confidence developed immensely over the week.  His ski instructor, Sylvia, was great, very approachable and reassuring. We have used them before in Courchevel and had high expectations, and were not disappointed." - Feefo
  • "I had six days of lessons with Sylvia in Val Thorens and was really impressed with the quality of the lessons. Sylvia was very helpful and encouraging, and we all got plenty of individual feedback and tips. I would definitely use New Generation again in the future." - Feefo
  • "We had a group lesson for 5 people with Sam.  He spent time with everyone, & we all felt we gained something from the lesson.  2 of us then had a further lesson & felt that our improvement was considerable.  Sam had the perfect balance of what we needed to do to improve, whilst giving us encouragement - I would highly recommend New Generation." - Feefo
