Nick Hutchinson Smith looked after our 3 year old for four half day sessions. Nick sent an excellent video of the progress our son achieved over the time he skied and we shall treasure that as I'm sure our boy will when he looks back too.

However, my husband's 50 th birthday wish was a skiing holiday in Switzerland for the family so after two trips to a snow dome it was time to hit the slopes! Skiing on the mountain was a completely new experience for me... More

Our 8 yr old daughter has some extra needs physically and we have tried to get her on skis several times over the past couple of years without much success. We were recommended to go with ES in Verbier and have some private adaptive lessons. I have to say we were completely amazed by what a difference this made. Phyllida... More
