I've done a fair bit of skiing but have only ever had one lesson so I decided to get a 1.5 hour private lesson to get some tips and brush up on technique. Stephane was a great instructor - really patient, knowledgeable and friendly. He assessed my skiing ability, told me what was good and bad and then taught me... More

We arrived in Val Thorens to snow snow and more snow, unlike most of the 2016 season that had past. We thought we wanted to have the off piste group lesson that Skicool run, but unfortunately not enough people realise how good ski lessons are for them. Even when you can ski, and it becomes so much more than just... More

My wife and a friend had 4 half day lessons with Stefan. He was an excellent instructor and by the 4th afternoon, I was stuggling to keep up with my wife, who was flying down the slopes (having not been able to ski at the beginning of the trip)!.

Great lessons from Sarah for our kids (11 and 13) first try at snowboarding. The kids really enjoyed trying boarding in a small group with a good English speaking instructor which was important for us for this first time. Very good value lessons as well. Many thanks to Sarah and Annie at Ski Cool

This is the third year running that we have used SkiCool for our 9 year old son. We had previously tried ESF and found their instruction too regimented and our son dreaded ski lessons every morning. We switched to Ski Cool after doing some research and liked the idea of them being a smaller school. I had also observed other... 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.
