The Nendaz Swiss Ski & Snowboard School is the oldest in Haute-Nendaz, founded in 1962 by Jacques Mariéthoz. In his local sport shop he created a space where he offered his services as a ski instructor which became the first loacal ski school.

Five of Jacques Mariéthoz's instructor friends joined him in this adventure, offering lessons to students during their school holidays and to many others who wanted to learn to ski with a professional instructor.
The original philosophy continues today with all the instructors sharing their love of the sport with the fun and enthusiasm first introduced in 1962.
