Private Ski Instruction and Ski School

We would advise all beginners to have lessons but everybody can benefit from some time with an instructor. You can have lessons at ESF (National Ski School) or with a private instructor. With both there is the option of individual or group lessons.

The ESF offers good value instruction and has offices at every ski area. They have set out to change the old image of the 'French Ski School' and, from our experience, it is working. The number of English-speaking instructors has increased and so has the standard of service. We can book your lessons and recommend instructors. ESF web site.

Private instructors are more expensive but it is money well spent for the right teacher. We will personally recommend instructors from a variety of ski schools in the valley to ensure you get the best. For further information visit the website of one of our favourite private schools, Evolution 2.

Nomadic can organise skiing and snowboarding lessons for groups and individuals but the best instructors are booked early so it pays to be organised.
