Good website. Book online or phone/fax. If you call, ask to speak to Nikki Pitts the local Australian who handles British bookings. She will help match you to the ideal instructor or class.

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. 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.
