The instructors at the ESF Ski School are specially trained and have a range of adapted ski equipment including Skibots, Single Ski, Double Ski, GMS and Bi-Ski. 

Both children and adults are catered for, with instructors that are passionate about giving you the ultimate skiing experience, whatever your disability. You are advised to book at least 15 days in advance, and then to confirm one week before arrival to ensure that the most appropriate equipment is available for your lesson.

Their aims are to:

  • Help you to explore the mountain environment
  • Discover and share the thrills of snowsports
  • Push back the limits of disability to autonomy

Equipment hire is included in the lesson price.
