Since 1923 Völkl has stood for unlimited passion for skiing and making high performance products. Based in Straubing, Völkl is the largest (and one of the last remaining) manufacturer in Germany, and their headquarters is one of the most modern production facilities in the world.
Here, high-tech innovation meets traditional craftsmanship to create the most precise, highest quality, and technologically advanced skis in the world. Their team of engineers, experienced craftsmen, tinkerers, and testers-as well as numerous top athletes and uncounted victories-have made Völkl one of the biggest ski brands in the world.
As Britain and France are easing out of lockdown and it is possible to travel again, many skiers are now planning to head for the mountains again this winter. Whenever you return to the snow, some things never change - the same question bothers you - “How do I improve?”. The Ski Better with Ali Ross DVD is your answer. Aimed at intermediate and advanced skiers, Ali's radical approach gets to the heart of what good skiing means with a few basic concepts and exercises and in doing so, demystifies much of what conventional ski instruction stands for.
The DVD will prepare you for the Clinics if you are a newcomer or serve as a reminder if you are a regular client. Ali also gives you the Inside Track on what to look for when you buy boots and skis. See the previews below.

We were fortunate that the lockdown only affected the very end of last season, but it has become clear that the Plague which caused it will still cast a shadow over this coming Winter as well. But despite the gloom mongering, uncertainty and unpredictability which surround us, we won't behave as if life has been put on indefinite hold. Therefore we would like to let you know that we intend to run as normal a season as we can in 2020/21 - if anyone wants to ski with us! To this end, we will try to make this as easy as possible in the following ways:
Whilst our regular groups,showing true bulldog spirit,have booked their usual weeks, the pervasive caution about travel understandably prevails for the majority of skiers. We have accordingly amended our Terms and Conditions (which hardly anyone used to read)in significant areas for the coming season. We hope this will give you the confidence to book ahead. Please see the Bookings page for details.
Where there is availability, course Levels can be changed to suit demand, so a particular week need not be tied to the advertised Level if people want a different one. The key is flexibilty. Just let us know what you have in mind and we will see what we can do. Providing skiers share a similar ability, it doesn't really matter what we call the course.
Finally, Tignes itself will have its own rules on social distancing etc, which as far as we can predict, will probably only affect how long it will take to get uphill, and if so, we will make up time for this. Otherwise, the skiing itself will be unaffected, except that perhaps our group discussion huddles on the hill might require some ingenuity to conform with whatever is demanded.
In short, we will be in Tignes if anyone wants to ski with us. And who knows - it might even be fun! We can't stay locked up forever....
