Platinum Ski School, Val d'Isere

Exclusive private lesson for Adults & Children with expert English speaking instructors

This small independent ski school offers lessons for all ages and abilities with professional instructor who speaks fluent English, Italian, French and Russian.

The company was set up and run by Lara De Agostini who began her career as a professional Slalom and Super G racer on both a national and international level. Following an injury she turned to teaching and has been sharing her knowledge and passion with others for the last 10 years.

"Coming back from the injury has given me a completely different and innovative approach to skiing. Experiencing the mental and physical difficulties of getting back on my skis has brought me closer to those people that don't ski every day, from beginners, through to advanced skiers." - Lara

The ski school offers both child and adult private ski lessons. They specialise in children's lessons, race training, off-piste and ladies ski lessons. 

Whether you are just starting off or looking to improve your skiing at any level, every lesson will be tailored to suit your specific needs and to your personal goals.

Where to meet

The meeting points can arranged to suit you, whether that's at your chalet, hotel, kids ski school meeting point - you just need to ask. 


Visitor comments

  • "We loved our lessons with Lara because she was able to take a mixed-ability group, which meant we could stay together and still improve our skiing. She explained what we should do in terms of how our bodies should feel, which made it really easy for the less experienced skiers to understand and implement. With her competition background she was also able help the advanced skiers fine-tune their technique and get the most out of the latest ski technology. Her meticulous technical analysis included taking video footage and giving us feedback over a hot chocolate on the hill. We were skiing with greater ease and control by the end of the week, and had great fun in the process!" - Customer Feedback
  • "I have been skiing for over 50 years in Europe and the USA, with my 5 children for the last 25 and with Lara for the last 4. I can say, without hesitation, that Lara De Agostini is an exceptional ski instructor. I have never come across anyone else with her level of insight and technical knowledge to teach any standard from absolute beginner to ski racer. She is already so much in demand I give this reference with great reluctance as I have no desire for anyone else to know about her P.S thanks for arrange the Piste Basher Experience." - Customer Feedback
