Good website. Book online or phone/fax. Val d'Isère's original ski school with an amazing 300 instructors. Rather variable, with priority to old instructors, while the best-known are usually booked early, so do specify that you want someone young who speaks good English and is good with your level. Maximum 8 skiers/snowboarders in adults' classes, and 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. Snowshoe excursions also available. Classes marked as running during French school holidays refer to 21 December-3 January, 8 February-7 March, and 12 April-1 May.

 

FREE TOUR OF THE SLOPES

Most Monday mornings the ESF gives us young English-speaking instructors to show guests around the slopes and give a bit of instruction whilst doing so. This is FREE to YSE guests.
