Good website. Book online or phone/fax. Val d'Isère's ESF was France's first ski school, and with 350 instructors is still Val's biggest. More and more young, English-speaking instructors and very reasonable prices make it an increasingly good option. Local Australian Nikki Pitts handles British bookings. Maximum 8 skiers/snowboarders in adult classes, while for juniors there are two price levels with maximum 8 children for one price, or 'unlimited but never more than 15' for less - details below. Off-piste, race-training, children's garden, snowboard, cross-country, ski-biking, snowshoe excursions etc all available. English-only lessons at half term. Classes marked as running during French school holidays refer to 18-31 December, 5 February-4 March, and 2-29 April.
