Winter is only one of the seasons we experience here on the mountain, but there is no denying that it is a special one. Whether you have never seen snow or are a highly competitive ski racer, Aiglon's winter ski programme is one of the great benefits of an education in Switzerland and offers something for everyone.
With lift access just a five-minute walk from campus, we are uniquely prepared to transform the school's robust physical education programme into a comprehensive winter ski programme that can provide for the youngest to the oldest and from the most experienced racers to the complete beginners.
Winter PE Programme
All of our students are instructed by local, professionally trained ski school instructors. Each season students are divided into ski groups based on their year and experience level. This allows for dedicated, focused teaching during the twice-per-week sessions on the slopes. The ski groups are overseen by Aiglon staff who are also always present on the mountain.
In addition to the standard PE programme, students are able to pursue additional ski opportunities through free skiing on the weekend, our expedition programme and racing opportunities. Everyone leaves Aiglon a proficient and well-developed skier. More than just a physical activity, our winter ski programme is another opportunity to develop well-rounded individuals through our unique local environment.
In addition to ski lessons, students are also provided with the opportunity to participate in one of the following winter programmes.
In addition to the standard ski programme, Aiglon offers students the opportunity to be part of the Aiglon ski race squad. Aiglon both competes in and hosts numerous races each season. Ski racing is an exciting, dynamic sport to which we have unparalleled access through our local resort. Even beginner skiers can quickly work their way up and enjoy the opportunity to represent Aiglon competitively on the slopes.
Aiglon competes in British calendar events, Swiss International Schools races, European international races as well as Swiss club races. Uniquely, Aiglon also hosts multiple ski races per year in the Villars-Gryon-Diablerets resort. This includes FIS races and annual Aiglon Cup event.
