Evolution Ski School Zermatt
Evolution Ski School Zermatt

We are a small ski school, offering private lessons, kids group and ski guiding in Zermatt.

 We believe we can create the most effective and unique experience, tailored around your level,  personal goals and needs. 


The team

We are a team of highly qualified and experienced instructors with a common purpose - sharing our passion for snow sports with you. 

We know the resorts inside and out as we have many years of experience living and working as ski instructors and ski guides.

All our instructors are multilingual, and are flexible; we speak English, French, Italian, Russian, Spanish, German, and Latvian.

Our philosophy

At Evolution, we believe that when you have a ski lesson you should receive a tailor-made service from the meeting point through to your experience up on the hill.

We will guide you around the Matterhorn ski area, advise you on the best runs according to weather and snow condition, time of the day, avoiding annoying bottlenecks and of course, securing good tables for lunch.

Come and ski with us.

Evolution ( Latin: Evolutio-Onis )

A gradual process in which something changes into a different and usually more complex or better form.
