There is more news from the Progression Ski and Snowboard School that is situated in Val d’Isere. The school already has its branches in such ski resorts as Tignes and Ste Foy, and now they are also going to present some more new and pleasant changes to their clients.

From this season the Ski and Snowboard School offers a number of classes, including private and group classes, classes for children and teenagers. More over, here work seven well-qualified ski instructors from Britain, three international instructors and several instructors working part-time.

The founder of the Progression Ski Ken Smith said that they now they can offer a number of classes of classical type. They have got no more than 6 persons in a group for beginners in skiing. Besides, this season they have introduced classes for all skiers of all levels.

There is one more difference from other ski schools in Britain. The Progression Ski and Snowboard school do not charge other people while giving lessons the private lessons and then the classes with the private instruction are paid per instructor.

It is also good that the Progression Ski and Snowboard School use bright helmets for children. It is more fun and effective (it is easier to notice the bright helmet) then to use the bright-colored bibs. Besides, classes for children are also can be held on Friday all day long and on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
