“Great ski School”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We love this ski school as the classes are small (6 for children and 8 for adults) and the instructors are very good at English. If you want to make sure that your child is happy at ski school use Eskimos. The classes are from 9.30am-12.30pm so they avoid the lift queues as Swiss Ski School starts at 10am and you get to have lunch with your children afterwards.

The only problems that we have encountered is when there are not enough people to run a certain class which has meant that you (or your child) has to ski down a class or hire a private instructor. Our 11 year old has got to the top children's class and come out of the top of it so we have changed resorts. But we loved the Eskimos and our 3 children ski well and have adored all their Eskimo instructors and classes!

“good instructors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Booked private lessons for myself and my wife and group lessons for the kids. The private lessons were excellent with a very friendly and flexible tutor - however it would have been nice to know when booking that private lessons are not limited to the 2.5 and 3hr slots indicated in the brochure, you can actually book any length and at any time of day. Kids lessons also seemed well run however at 2.5 hours were too long for our youngest (4 years old), even with the 30 minute break in the middle - however our 7 year old loved them.

“Great Instructors - Private Lessons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have used Eskimos Ski School for Private Instructions for each of our 3 boys and my husband and myself over the past several years. Over the more than 10 times we have used instructors from this group - we have never been disappointed. Our oldest son learned to snowboard with them as well. All instructors have been very kind to the boys and also have done a great job improving their skiing. The instructors were always at the meeting spot early and were many times a bit late coming back (which we prefer because they were really using all the time they had to teach the boys and were not anxious to move onto to someone else). Nothing but positive things to say!!!
