Eight British and seven French instructors including well-known British instructors Al, Dave, Mark, Phill, Rupert, Rupert, Simon and Tansy. Enthusiastic personal attention, and great feedback from YSE guests. Very good for older children, slalom, bumps, powder and for those looking for a new approach or less confident skiers on the verge of giving up. Mostly private lessons, though they will put adults’ on- and off-piste groups together if there’s enough demand from people of the same level. No group classes for beginners. Children’s classes only during school holidays if enough demand. Expensive but worth it and must be booked in advance. Video during lessons, watched in a mountain restaurant. Also snowboarding, telemarking and snowshoeing. Office in Killy Sports in the centre of Val d'Isère, where the ever-efficient Estelle makes a big effort to match each group with just the right instructor.
