Element started for a very simple reason – after teaching for years together in Verbier, two friends had the same idea. Emma (who’s examines and trains British ski instructors) and Guy (who was running a bigger ski school for seven years) decided they both wanted to work in a small ski school with a few friends really experienced instructors and who all had years and years of teaching under their belts.
So they decided to start something new. A team of like-minded, committed instructors who love Verbier and know it like the back of their hands. The result is a small ski school dedicated to delivering the best possible lessons and only working with excellent coaches. elementconcept.com
