Neilson Mountain Experts

If you’re looking for free on-the-mountain guiding and coaching, then look no further!

We’re the only UK ski company to offer guiding and coaching from fully qualified ski and snowboard instructors, local to your resort, throughout the season. We call them Mountain Experts.

Your Mountain Expert will not only show you the best slopes and coffee stops on the mountain, but give you tips on your technique to make you a more confident skier or boarder at the same time.

The sessions are available to anyone aged 18 or over (or 12 in school holidays), staying in a Mountain Collection hotel, chalet hotel or catered chalet in Andorra, France or Italy. You just need to be comfortable skiing or boarding on blue or red runs and you can sign up for a variety of sessions throughout your holiday.

Explore the area, improve your technique or even try out freestyle in the park; we have sessions to suit all levels and ambitions! We guarantee each guest will get at least two sessions per week (if you want to of course!)

And remember, it’s completely free and available to anyone staying in a Mountain Collection hotel, chalet hotel or catered chalet in Andorra, France or Italy.

The word from the slopes

  • “Easy access from M1. Plenty of parking, simple registration, and quick service to collect skis, boots etc. Both lifts serving the main slopes worked faultlessly and although the session was quite busy I felt the slopes were quite free of other skiers & classes. I particularly liked the snow conditions and at the end enjoyed the amazing cafè overlooking the slopes. Reasonably priced menu. All told an excellent start to our skiing this year.”

  • “Very friendly staff. Good, clean facilities and very good prices on lessons & lift passes.”

  • “Very helpful staff would recommend to anyone trying to learn snow sports very down to earth people.”

  • “Great place, nothing negative to add. You can rent all of the equipment down to socks. Any kind of lessons available. Parking, gear store, cafe on site”

  • “Great lessons with experienced instructors who put kids and parents at their ease. The lessons were full as it was half term, but each child still didn’t have to wait too long between turns on the slope. It was easy to get and return equipment and the food in the restaurant was great and came promptly.”
