We are in 1965, in Valtournenche there is only one chairlift that starts from the town and one available teacher, Ivonne Perron the first!
During the festivities, people multiply and the teachers of the School come to help Cervino, Luigi Gaspard, Alfonso Pession, Marco Pession and Livio Meynet, then finally also Giovanni Carrel Giuliana Cerise and Ivonne Barmasse. We are not yet a real school but a branch of the Scuola del Cervino.
To become officially, however, we do not wait long and in 1968 we record the foundation of the “Valtournenche ski school”.
We must take a necessary step back, we are in 1911 and one is created in Valtournenche of the oldest ski clubs in Italy.
To date, almost 60 years in business, our school has 25 teachers, we organize group courses in the periods of Christmas, Carnival and Easter by counting
on average 450 registrations. We organize annual seasonal courses with 60 children. We collaborate with a Belgian tour operator by organizing weekly courses. The our specialties are Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding, Cross Country Skiing and Telemark.
We have 2 locations (one in the center of Valtournenche and one directly at the arrival of the cable car on the slopes) where you can come and visit us and get to know us and why not, be part of ours family and write other pages of this fantastic story together.
