I had zero experience with any kind of board sports, by the end of six day beginners course blue pistes felt like walk in a park and at red ones i felt very confident. All this magic is thanks to Marion who's a great instructor, has a lot of experience, enormous amounts of patience, caring about students and just a... More

So initially we only went in to ask a question, unrelated to getting lessons from them. However, they were so nice and friendly we ended up booking a private lesson. We were very happy we did as the instructor was really good and we both saw improvements in our snowborading skills. They weren't pushy with us booking more lessons and... More

The ski school was very flexible- they managed to arrange an instructor for me within mins of my request. I took private lessons with Marion and picked up really useful tips within 1.5 hours. Highly recommended!

During the last period of our visit to Val Torans was very snow weather . Some days was with the strongest drifts. But our skiing didn't become extreme - thanks to care and high professionalism of remarkable coaches of this school! I can compare! We quietly give to "Scicool" our children - here magnificent and precautionary supervision. Children were made... More

As others have said - really small groups, which greatly helps. Our 11 yr old had a great time with his warm, friendly coaches, in a class half the size of the trainloads of ESF kids we regularly saw going past. We were in a group of 6 initially, though this dropped to four, as first our 16yr old daughter... More

We spent 3 afternoons with Denis Bertrand and teenage kids 3 afternoons with Vero de la Maison. Both had great times, really enjoyed the instruction at a time when weather was not great.

We booked private lessons with Ski Cool for 4 children in our group who had slightly different levels of experience. After 2 days we realised that this wasn't quite working out. I visited Annie at the office and she was so helpful and reassuring. We switched my daughter into ski school and after a nervous start she finished the week... More

Having had a fairly indifferent time with ESF the year before both boys excelled with the friendly and happy instructors at Ski Cool. It was incredibly well organised, calm, friendly and everyone had time to listen to any concerns. Both boys were known by name and the instructors at the end of each lesson where able to comment on all... More
