1. CAPIRE CHE TIPO DI LEZIONI DI SCI A ST MORITZSTAI CERCANDO
Even if it might sound obvious, the first step to find the perfect ski school for you in St Moritz is understanding what kind of ski school you are looking for.
Are you looking for a ski instructor who can help you improve your technical skills or are you a total beginner?
Or, again, are you on a search for ski schools for kids or freeriding adventures for skilled skiers?
The clearer the answer, the more the following tips are going to help you in your choice.
2. VALUTARE LA PREPARAZIONE TECNICA DEI MAESTRI DI SCI
The ski instructor’s technical skills are definitely one of the most important aspects one should consider before choosing what ski school to entrust for your ski lessons in St Moritz.
All of the ski instructors teaching in St Moritz have different levels of technical competence, according to the related specialization.
This level usually indicates the different fields in which instructors specialized themselves.
If you are a beginner or you are looking for a ski instructor that might introduce your beginner son to skiing, make sure that the ski instructor is qualified in teaching to young kids.
If, on the other hand, your goal is fine-tuning your technical skills, entrust yourself to an instructor specialized in this field.
Sometimes, relying on someone that on paper might appear more qualified, more experienced, might be counter-productive.
Ski instructors who are used to deal with an already technically prepared customer might struggle a bit more, when facing beginners, than those specialized in teaching to kids on a daily basis.
3. NUMERO IDEALE DI ALLIEVI PER LEZIONI DI SCI DI GRUPPO
Not all those looking for a ski school in St Moritz are interested in private ski lessons for their kids.
There are also people who prefer their kids to take part in group ski lessons with other kids their age.
For a kid, having the chance of making new friends and of sharing skiing experience, is definitely an aspect worth to be considered.
Another aspect, probably even more important, is the maximum number of students per group ski lesson a ski school accepts .
As a matter of fact, a lot of ski schools, in order to be able to offer clients with a lower price per person per lesson, they increase the number of students per ski instructor up to 10-12 kids.
On one hand, parents save some money, but very likely, on the other hand, the kid will not receive the same attention as in a group ski lesson with a lower number of students.
A good advice is to entrust yourself with a ski school that has a maximum of 6-7 kids per group lesson .
In this situation, the instructor will be able to work properly, giving the right attention to all young students, helping them to improve and have some fun in total safety.
4. PREZZO DELLE LEZIONI DI SCI A ST MORITZ
The price is surely one of the aspects mostly considered while choosing the ski schools for your ski lessons in St Moritz.
As for private ski lessons, prices are almost the same for all ski schools there.
What marks a difference between one ski school and another is, without any doubt, the level of technical skills and the different specialization of the ski instructor.
A broader difference as for prices can be found in group ski lessons.
This difference is usually related to the maximum number of students per group, as mentioned above.
Then, more generally, the price of a ski school is very often directly proportional to the quality of the service offered.
5. SERVIZI EXTRA OFFERTI DALLE SCUOLE DI SCI
Being the ski school market in St Moritz very competitive, and although ski schools have similar price ranges, an aspect that can make the difference when choosing between the several ski schools, other than the instructors’ technical skills, are the extra services offered.
For example, for those who purchase all day group ski lessons packages for kids, most St Moritz ski schools offer the possibility for the kids to have lunch supervised by an instructor, at a convenient price. Others ski schools propose, instead, ski equipment for rental, to those who are not equipped with.
Moreover, others offer parents the chance of not having to drive their kids back and forth to meeting points, as a ski–bus service with dedicated drivers is available.
There are also other ski schools organizing at the end of the main holiday periods (Christmas, Carnival, Easter) ski races for all kids participating in group ski classes, making all students (even beginners) experience the emotions professional athletes live when competing.
Finally, very few schools propose a service that is becoming more and more requested in St Moritz: a photo and video coverage of ski lessons, with professional video-makers and photographers.
Therefore, extra services play a primary role in one’s choice, especially when the lesson price and the instructor’s technical skills are the same.

Quello degli Ski Team, ovvero gli Sci Club, è un capitolo a parte nel panorama delle scuole che offrono lezioni di sci a St Moritz.Ski Teams, more commonly known as Ski Clubs, represent a chapter apart in the landscape of ski lessons in St Moritz .
As a matter of fact, most schools have, within their own structure, Ski Clubs arranging training sessions with trainers, competitions and training trips for athletes .
The structure of these Ski Clubs is very similar to classic ones, but with a few differences.
Activities cover all age groups, starting from an early pre-competitive program for kids between 5 and 7 years old up to 17-18 year-old-kids.
Choosing the right ski team involves different aspects, just like in the choice of a ski school for beginners; however, in this case, the most important one to be considered is definitely the quality of the services offered.
When parents decide their son/daughter should undertake a competitive path, the most considered aspects are the level of technical education and technical skills of the ski team’s staff .
