The instructor John took us all up on a gondola to ski on Verdon on white out conditions. I for one could not see and I made myself fall because I thought... More

Dear Client, Thank you for you commentary, it help us a lot. We fell very sorry about the experience you had with us; Our clientele corvers a large range of nationalities and consequently a large range of wishes concerning the lesson content, so it's sometimes hard for the ski instructor espacialy in this bad weather condition. But i'm upset he... More

I had a weeks worth of fantastic ski lessons with Guiamme in La Tania in an intermediate group - my ski capability came on loads, and he showed us all over the 3 valleys, doing differing locations and runs each day to expand our knowledge which we were able to repeat in the afternoon after the lesson ended. These are... More

My two daughters have always learned with ESF and this year was no different. ESF have a purpose built school in 1850 for use with the 1ere Etoille and lower. They have a great area that allows some small jumps and a little course for the end of the lessons.

Fred did a great job. He started slowly and worked up to the more challenging slopes for my wife Erin. It was a good strategy that fit her level well. He also met at our ski valet at L'Apogee which probably saved us from getting lost on our first trip to Courchevel.

I arrived to La Tania as a novice skier whom felt most at home with a green or blue piste, providing the blue piste wasn't too steep. The first part of day one is kind of a calibration where...
