Our daughter aged 8 turned up for the intermediate group, first day the instructor said she was too small and could not possibly be in the group! We told him to assess her and on our return found her in the beginners group[our daughter has been skiing 3 times before and had lessons in UK] We were told they were... More

disliked the apartment. The lift system in my opinion is second to none. The season is longer as the village is over 7000 feet above sea level and that makes it snow sure. The lift pass is well priced and many options from which to choose. Pity it's in France.

I booked my two beginner boys (9 and 11) into Ski Cool for a weeks ski school based on their TA reviews and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Laurence was a fabulous instructor, both boys loved her and progressed fantastically in the week, 1 gaining his 'one star' and the other 'flocon' level. We were especially impressed when our youngest son... More

My two kids, six and eight had a great time being taught by Arthur and Marian, the kids skiing came on fantastically. The classes were small (max 5 in both I believe) and the main thing was the boys had a fab time. Thank you Ski Cool.

My daughter (age 5) had one week's lessons with SkiCool, and I was quite pleased with the instruction. Even though my daughter is only 5, she has skied many times before and is at a higher level than most children her age. Many ski schools stick her in the lowest level classes, with children her age, and then she is... More

My husband and I just had a fantastic week of private lessons with Amelie. Her english is excellent and easy to understand. Her instruction was kind and supportive. And most importantly, she was very good at explaining and demonstrating the techniques in a way which was easy for us to understand. As a local she knows the mountain backwards and... More

Two children at different skiing levels with different needs. Daughter loved it but probably not the right choice for my son. I booked with skiCool after a couple fo poor experiences with ESF in other resorts. We always have to go at peak times which means the childrens ski classses are generally full. With ESF this means 14 in a... More

Having spent 2 days falling over on a snowboard and hating the damn thing, I was ready to thow it down the mountain!! Then my girlfriend and I booked a 2 hour private lesson through SkiCool (only about 90 Euros for 2 of us!), with an instructor named Begnat. After 2 hours of Begnat patiently showing us where to put... More

We had the pleasure of spending the full week with Philip, private lessones for my father-in-law and myself. Philip was VERY nice; we managed to change a lesson's schedule (due to weather). Philip took us onto great slops, adjusting himself to our limits, and pushing through the limites to get us a bit further up from where we were. He... More

15 year old son wanted to board. He has had ~ 4 hours on UK snowdomes. I put him in group 1 - just above beginner, he was moved up to level 2 ASAP. By the end of 6 days he was free riding powder faster than me ! Little bugger. Easy to find meeting point, numerous sub-offices in town.... More
