Was recommended esf as the best ski school to go to as a beginner. Our teacher was first class - he quickly got to know all his adult beginners and knew what we feared and what we could do with confidence. Unfortunately he was only with us for 4 days of the 6 and the second teacher just did not... More

Clair was assigned to be the "international" Club Med 3A instructor due to her good English and Dutch. We enjoyed her for a whole week. She was great! Full of joy, Funny Enthusiastic yet very professional and responsible. Clair took us on full days (she skipped lunch at the club with us). This gave us the opportunity to travel further... More

Claire took us for 3 private lessons last week. We started with a half day with another instructor on our first day. He was good but more a guide than instructor. Claire was very informative but had a relaxed and amusing style. I was a beginner but was comfortably parallel turning after the first day. We got stuck on a... More

I joined the ski school for some remedial instruction and to be stretched to ski things I normally avoid (like moguls and powder). I also hoped it would give me some fun people to ski with for the week. It did all this. Our instructor was great: personable, encouraging and challenging. I'd hoped the group wouldn't be too large. As... More

We discussed our requirements with our ESF instructor - we we're looking for evaluation of our technique (or lack there of) and some helpful critique so we could improve. We then played 'follow the red jacket' around la Plagne for 3 hours. He skied off and we followed, he proceeded to show us (and tell us) how good a skier... More

I and my family have never skied before. In one week, ski instructors made us ski. It is really very worth going to learn mountain skiing!

We had ski lessons with Pierre from ESF aime 2000. He was the best instructor we have ever had on a ski resort. If we come back we would definitely have lessons with him again. He helped us with technique but also showed us the mountain and runs.

Fantastic ski school. My 4 year old could ski after first day!! Lovely French staff, very good with the children. They were up the mountain cruising the blues after day 2 which was amazing. Nothing bad to say, highly recommend this ski school.

For 30 euros a day, I could have found my own way around the pistes. This was little more than a guided tour of the slopes. I started in a predominantly Briitish group but for some reason (hard to believe it was ability, I think it was to even up numbers) was pushed up into a better group who were... More
