Group Lessons v Private Lessons

Grandvalira Ski instructor with group

Pas de la Casa offers two choices for lessons with positives and negatives to both. Although private lessons are per hour more expensive, you get the full attention of your instructor. Taking group lessons is cheaper for the 15 hour package, however you share your instructor with the rest of your group. With group lessons, at the start of the week you'll be split into groups according to your ability, and yes, snowboarders and skiers have separate lessons!!!

If you're travelling as a group you could combine the two - book an instructor to just look after your party for a few hours or perhaps the whole week meaning you get to snowboard or ski with your friends, plus the instructor is dedicated the needs of your group!

So when you come to Pas de la Casa, deciding whether you want to take group ski school or private lessons is up to you and your personal circumstances. If you're undecided beforehand, chat to your holiday rep or the ski school when you get here, and they'll be able to advise you what is best option for you and your party.
