From beginners to experts with fully qualified English speaking instructors

by ESF Alpe d'Huez featured in Ski lessons Updated

This ski school is part of the prestigious Ecole du Ski Français. With schools throughout France in all major resorts, they are one of the best known and well-trusted ski schools in the Alps.

All instructors are fully qualified and experienced in teaching a number of different techniques to adults and children. Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced skier or snowboarder, they can help you develop your technique and build your confidence at a pace you are comfortable with.

Group lessons are the most popular way to start out and are great fun. You will be learning alongside people of the same standard as yourself. This ski school will aim to put you in a group with an instructor and class mates who speak your language.

The ski school also has specially trained instructors that can teach handiskiing, with a full range of specialist equipment. The cost of hiring the equipment is included in the price of the lesson.

Children's group lessons allow your child's confidence to grow whilst meeting groups of children at the same level, making new friends and having fun whilst learning to ski. They will also receive a medal at the end of the week.

Other activities include snowshoeing, kite skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing and off-piste lessons, which offer great alternatives to the usual skiing and snowboarding lessons.

Child policy

This ski school starts teaching children from 2.5 years. All their children's courses are age and ability specific, with lessons and gentle games starting in the snow garden from 2.5 to 5 year olds.

Older children will start out on the nursery slopes and will progress to more advanced classes for children up to 12 years. As your child improves they will be put through 'stages' and awarded badges to mark their progress. Advanced skiers can take race-training lessons to learn how to ski safely at speed.

Teenagers will love taking part in snowpark sessions, where they will learn to navigate jumps and obstacles with confidence and style.
