DATES 13-15 January 2023


The Lötschental valley is just one hours drive from our home turf and especially in early season it is a superb location with endlessly long runs using the lift system known as Leuchneralp which quickly whisks you to 3000m.

On top of this the ski-touring gives access to incredibly wild and remote terrain. with many beautiful descents. We are putting together a weekend of adventurous off-piste skiing and ski-touring, ideal for those looking for a challenge. The ascent to the Petersgrat and the long powder ski descent that emerges through stunning mountain forest right at our hotel in Blatten is one of our favourite ski tours in Switzerland.

The Lötschental only became easily accessible with the opening of the Lötschberg tunnel in 1913 and the construction of the road in the 1950s. Thanks to this the Lötschetal has retained a unique charm with its heritage, sun-blackened wooden houses and Valaisian granaries.

We stay in the cosy 3 star spa hotel Edelweiss in Blatten the highest village in the Lötschental, the hotel underwent a full refurbishment in 2016. Our programme includes 2 nights half board with an excellent 4 course dinner.

“This was the second time I skied with Stefano and it’s only getting better! I am a 22 years-old skier in competitive level, and just like the first time, I enjoyed every single moment of my journey…”


“I chose Zenit because of their approach and program. All the other schools I contacted didn’t seem to offer what I needed. Dedicated 1/2 day lesson 1 to 1 reaching.Alex was my teacher, and I felt…”

“My son had an awesome experience. The coaches are all extremely professional, kind, caring, and knowledgeable. Our son got excellent feedback on his skiing and how to improve and he grew hugely in confidence both on and off the piste. We were very impressed by the coaches and by the whole setup. He’s looking forward to training with them again soon. Thank you!”

Off-piste safety equipment is necessary for all our freeride skiing lessons. This consists of an avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe. We highly recommend the use of a backpack with an inflatable air bag system to be even safer. We highly recommend the use of ski touring equipment to all our freeride guests to maximize terrain access
To enjoy a freeride lesson, you need to be an advanced skier. You don't have to be an experienced off-piste skier, but you have to be comfortable on all slopes of a ski resort. Skiing off-piste will prove itself more challenging than any type of ski slope.
There are multiple ski hire shops in Saas Fee, we recommend Glacier Sport and guests having lessons with us receive a 10% discount on equipment rental.
If you have booked private lessons our instructors can meet you in a variety of locations in resort such as: Plattjen / Spielboden Gondola station. Alpin Express Gondola station. Kalbermatten - Beginner slopes (Lift ticket office). For our intermediate and advanced skiers we can also meet up on the slopes at the Morenia Restaurant. Children’s group lessons will meet at the Plattjen / Spielboden Gondola station on Monday mornings. Please confirm your meeting point with the office when booking.
Our children’s group lessons are all taught in English. Private lessons can be booked in English, German, French, Dutch and Spanish subject to availability.
We always check that all safety equipment is working perfectly. Skis, bindings, ski touring skins and boots must be checked by the guest prior to the freeride lesson.
