Looking for group skiing lesson for adult or people, just got parallel

What we are looking for?
Hi, I am looking for ski school that offers group skiing lesson for adults (i.e. helps to form a group for two people with other people), or people with similar level to form a group for skiing group lesson. We hope to find a ski instructor that is able to correct our mistakes with tailored exercises. We would not take the private lesson as it is often much more expensive.

Our level
We are two people that just got from snow plough position to parallel (and may go back a bit to snow plough if the slope is steep). We have now no problems with all blue slopes, but would like to further improve it with systematic lessons.

Location and time
We have no preference for locations (CH, AT, IT...) as long as there is reasonable accommodation price and availability, and are looking for lessons that will last from 3 to 5 consecutive days from mid March.

We are willing to take the class either in English or German.

Anybody interested in or have any suggestions?

Re: Looking for group skiing lesson for adult or people, just got parallel

Hi edge,

I'm a ski instructor in Engelberg, and have helped arrange groups from this forum in the past, so you can do a forum search for other people's experiences. My wife and I both learned to ski as adults and feel we have a particular empathy with other adult learners which has helped us to help them relax, enjoy and improve their skiing.

I work through an independent ski school here which only ever takes a maximum of six people in normal group lessons anyway, but it might equally make sense, depending how many other interested parties are interested in joining you, to put this together as a private group, rather than trying to join other groups.

Here in Engelberg there are some superb learning areas, although you may also have heard, quite correctly, that it's more well known for its steep and challenging slopes. I'm a particular fan of the area at Gerschnialp which allows quite a range of ability levels to be challenged as necessary while also being very amenable to absolute beginners.

As it happens I've got a family group with me for the next three days, the father of which contacted me via EF a few years back, and has skied with me on numerous days since, developing from a near beginner to a competent and confident off-piste skier. Now it's the turn of his wife and kids, and if I can do even half as good a job with them as he's managed I'll be very happy.

Edit: There was quite a lot of discussion in this thread, most of which is still relevant, although we've tended not to do the "Ski Academy' for adults so much in the last couple of years.
