Very good instructors. Horrible and rude staff being the desk. Like a parody of French rudeness. Also very expensive. Do not not bother if you have an alternative. Use a private instructor if you can. Avoid school holidays.

I had private lessons on all 4 days I am in Chamonix. Excellent instructors. Very professional, passionate about what they do and really keen to see students progressed. Ask for Ben or Pascal!

Why do they employ people that cant speak the lanugage of the tourists? And dont like children? Kids crying, left behind, didnt know their names. Nearly put kids of skiing for life - Try and find an alternative if you can.
