We have just come back from our third ski holiday in SAnte Foy. Apex have taught both myself and my children to ski every year. We would not go with anyone else. Definite recommend to anyone seeking lessons.

Transformed my skiing today! Simply explained changes which made such a difference. And showed me how to enjoy spring skiing - I love the sun but not the slush. However I've learnt how to ski easily with it - thanks Robbie.
