Epic Snowsports School Lenzerheide
Our philosophy is a little different from other ski schools in the area. Although the actual snowsport instruction side has and will always be very important, for us it is just as important that the guest has an overall positive experience in the mountains. This consists not only of great snowsports instruction but of all the other aspects that make a memorable trip to Lenzerheide
Whatever a guest requires, we organize it. Accommodation, equipment rental, after ski activities, restaurants, the list is endless. We like our guests to be able to switch off, relax and let Epic do the thinking for them while they are on holidays.
Instructors are fluent in English and German. Lessons in French are also possible.
A local dialect of German is spoken in the area but English is very well know language through out Switzerland so there wont be any communication problems.
Lenzerheide wasn’t a ski resort designed on a computer and cut through the landscape. Lenzerheide was and always will be a traditional alpine village that has developed into a world class ski area over time.
