Patagoniatiptop Private Ski Lessons, Chamonix

Learn to ski with Ex-Worldcup ski racer Ella Alpiger

If you are looking for a private instructor at the top of their game who can successfully teach you the basics, improve your technique and build your confidence on and off piste, then look no further.

Ella Alpiger is an ex-worldcup Swiss ski racer who in association with Patagoniatiptop offers private ski and telemarking lessons.

Whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned skier who is looking to take their skiing to the next level or even challenge themselves by having a go at telemarking, her and her partner, Federico, can help you. Both Ella and Federico are fully qualified ski instructors who speak fluent English and Frederico is a certified high mountain guide.

As a small company they are able to offer a quality, personalised service. Their coaching can have you confidently making your first turns on-piste or smoothly gliding through deep-powder off-piste. You can choose to have one to one lessons or learn with family and friends of a similar level. The maximum group size is 3 adult skiers to ensure you get all the attention you need whilst developing your skills.

With their love of the mountains, during the winter Patagoniatiptop also work as Ski Guides, running ski-touring trips, Mont Blanc excursions, ice-climbing and Vallee Blanche & Haute Route trips.
