Element Verbier ski school – expert ski lessons & ski instructor training
Off Piste Lessons
Private off-piste lessons
Off piste is the Holy Grail of skiing – leaving the marked trails and exploring the mountain. But the technique to get you down the slope and the skills to keep you safe are vital. And trickier than you might think…
Verbier is famous for it’s terrain and we have some of the best lift-accessed off piste skiing in the world. From well known runs off piste descents to secret powder stashes, we can help you explore even more of the mountain.
So we run off piste lessons that can introduce novices to off-piste as well as take the experienced skier to terrain where they can test their technique to the limit.

It’s time to take your technique to the next level
We offer a range of group camps over the winter as well as private off piste ski lessons.
So whatever you’re looking for you’ll fine the perfect way to take your skiing to the next level here.
Whether you want to conquer bump skiing, crack carving, learn off-piste techniques or raise your level across every area of your skiing, our Performance Camps allow you to learn and improve with people who share your focus.
We are also running Off-piste Camps this winter aimed at helping you specifically learn and master the movements to ski off-piste and push yourself in the backcountry.
Our team of coaches have years of experience coaching at this level and understand what it takes to unlock the potential of each individual skier. Plus when you ski with people at the same level you can help push and encourage each other so everyone gets better results.
We have scheduled Camps all winter, but we can also arrange bespoke camps if you have a group that would like to ski together and focus on the same goals.
