About Us

SkivoAcademy is a ski training organisation offering ski programmes for people wanting to become ski instructors and for young talented skiers.


We are located in one of the world's most reliable ski resorts and our team is difficult to match in terms of experience and expertise. See below for our team and our structure.

Our winter programmes run out of Le Praz, Courchevel, which is part of the huge ski area of the 3 Valleys. Le Praz is one of the best equipped of the Courchevel villages with 2 modern high capacity ski lifts that take you straight into skiable domain and access to the world's largest ski area. Courchevel is a north-facing resort so often has the best and longest lasting snow.
