We arrived on the first day of skiing and the esf staff were very abrupt getting everyone into their groups and whizzed us off before we knew what was happening. Then in my group our teacher was pleasant but not very communicative so I found out after 3 hours of hard skiing that we were in Switzerland and were not... More

We found the instructors here top class in comparison to other ski schools. Both our children 12 and 10 got wonderful instructions and tips for improving their skiing unlike other places where they just followed their instructors around the slopes.

One of the reasons we ski in France is because of the professionalism of the Instructors. ESF are very good for both adults and kids.

Small children are taught in groups with great patience.. There is teaching in English and in French from nationally qualified instructors Individual tuitionIs available but is obviously more expensive.. I found confidence of clients in this long established ski school

Went early Feb 17 with my wife, went for a 3 day group lesson package. Even though we both ski at a different level we were both able to get something out of the lessons, building her confidence and giving me pointers on the way! Would happily use ESF again!

We chose this ski town because it was sold as family friendly. Not so family friendly in my opinion. This school followed suit. The first part of the week we had horrible weather,so bad in fact that they closed the slopes one day. The school had no tolerance for four year olds that complained. I watched as they would leave...
