    What an amazing first-time skiing experience!
    Joe is a wonderful teacher who has been instrumental in guiding me through the process of learning how to ski. He has helped me gain confidence and develop my skills on the slopes, ensuring that I enjoy the process and have fun. I thoroughly enjoyed my time and would highly recommend the lesson to my friends.

    Learned a lot, had fun!
    My instructor was great!! They were very friendly and improved my skiing. I learned how to do parallel turns and got tips that improved my form. After my lessons, I was comfortable going down harder runs. The instructors also know the best photo spots and restaurants on the mountain. Really enhanced our trip.

    Best ski class ever!
    I recently had a fantastic 3-hour ski lesson with instructor Mike, and I can't recommend it enough. As a beginner, I had a lot of fun refining my skills on the blue slopes. I'd definitely hire them again when I return to Zermatt. The communication with the school was excellent, Erica is the best. Mike was incredibly patient with my clumsy moves, and his tips really helped me progress. It's a day I'll always remember. Huge thanks to Mike, Erica, and the whole team—you rock!

    Terrific lesson! I learned so much in just a couple of hours - fun and friendly and great value for money!
    Terrific lesson! Nick was very friendly and attentive. He listened carefully, analysed my skiing forensically and really helped me understand how small changes would make a big difference to my skiing - particularly my short turns. I finished the lesson with very clear take-aways that have made me feel a much stronger and more confident skier. Great value for money - thank you!

    Excellent ski school
    We have been repeat customers of Summit. Their teachers are all friendly, qualified and focused on understanding your objectives so they can spend lessons achieving them. At the same time they make the lessons enjoyable and stimulating for both adults and kids.

    Brilliant ski school!
    I had a fantastic 4 days of ski school with Joe. It was so much fun and he was very patient when teaching me. Joe made the lessons both fun, informative and allowed us to explore the vast ski area that Zermatt offers. I would 100% recommend this ski school for anyone! Thank you guys very much :)

    Great time skiing with Chris!
    During our visit large portions of the mountain were unavailable for skiing due to High winds. Chris Thorne got us on the mountain avoiding crowds, and providing great instruction along the way. Plus we had a ton of fun.

    Highly recommend!
    My tween daugther had 6 day morning group lesson with Ben Chelley. Not only she had wonderful experience with Ben to ski around Swiss Alps but she actually has learned so much new and better technique from him during that time. My daughter had wonderful time but I, as a parent, was so happy with the quality of lesson and experience she was getting. Also, I want to highlight Erica has been so responsive and kind throughout booking process. I couldn't recommend this commpany more. Thank you for a great experience!

    Mixed family group success!
    We were led by Rob from Summit (and a cameo from Steve for our sole snowboarder). A mixed age and ability group but Rob’s flexibility and knowledge meant we all enjoyed the pistes and learnt new skills. All of us had a great time thanks to Rob (and Steve) and once again, Summit have delivered to make our ski trip awesome.

Rob is an excellent ski instructor. He simplifies techniques, patiently guides you, and genuinely loves skiing. Whether you're a beginner or refining your skills, Rob's your go-to guy. He boosts your confidence and keeps the experience enjoyable. Skiing with Rob was a great choice.

Had a 3 hour private lesson with Rob. Fantastic teacher and helped me and my wife on our first attempt at skiing. Managed to cover all the basics within the day! Great view of the Matterhorn as well in the background

We booked Rob to help Ollie [15 years] with recording his GCSE Practical assessment. Rob was great, put Ollie immediately at ease and was super friendly. Ollie got some great footage then had an absolute blast on black runs and a bit of off piste! Awesome.

I hadn't been skiing for several years and was a little apprehensive that I could still remember how to do it! The booking system was excellent, efficient and communicative. I was pared with a wonderful ski instructor called Milla for a private lesson on my first day. Milla was lovely, patient and gave very clear instructions. She was very encouraging and I felt very safe in her hands. I went onto to book another private lesson a couple of days later and by the end of the afternoon I was skiing down red runs with confidence! Thank you to Erica, Milla and all the team at Summit Ski and Snowboard School.

Summit continues to rate high on my list of ski schools with great service —from booking ( easy) to teaching ( with a smile!) it’s been a pleasure to ski with their instructors. Whether you take a private or a group they are the best, even if it means getting on the mountain by 9 am. Three of us took lessons and everyone improved!

I had a 3hr private lesson with Steve, who is a great instructor-- upbeat and positive, knows how to move the goal posts incrementally, and he clearly loves to ride so it was fun to see him in action too. I came into the lesson comfortable riding the blues in Zermatt, and unsure of what the red and black runs were like. Steve was great at assessing my (90's) snowboarding skills and filling in some blanks (this was my first ever formal lesson), and piquing my curiosity about what else is possible. Red runs were NBD by the end of the lesson, and I had the privilege of learning that yes, if you fall and start sliding on the #8 black run, you will eventually come to a stop! (PSA)

It was also nice to take a lesson from someone who is a dedicated snowboarder--seems like a rarity in Zermatt, and I appreciated it. If schedule wasn't an issue, I definitely would have booked multiple days.

Every interaction I had with Summit outside of the lesson (email, office, seeing their instructors on the hill) was courteous and professional, and I'd highly recommend booking with them. Have fun!

Ski guide. Rob from summit sports spent the day skiing with me and guiding me around. Not only did he fulfill his role as a guide, getting me to know the trails, the markings and the lifts. He added details, history and personal anecdotes to make it all interesting and fun..
Also a great deal of our skiing was done in a lesson format ( which I asked for) and I leaned a lot. For my first time skiing the Alps I content have asked for a better experience.
Then of course there was the food…

Excellent instruction from Rob for our family with different skill sets. The conditions were super snowy and challenging, and he helped us adapt.
