Founded in 1986 in Sierra Nevada, the Official Ski School (EOE) is one of the oldest in Spain.

Around a hundred ski/snowboarding instructors form their work team, whose experience and qualification are one of their hallmarks.

From first-class winter sports technicians to demonstrators from the Spanish School, EOE ski/snowboarding instructors are trained to meet the needs of any type of clients, whether beginner or expert. All the ski/snowboarding instructors are suitably qualified in the different disciplines through the teaching centers recognized by the Royal Spanish Federation of Winter Sports and backed by the Superior Council of Sports. These certificates are homologated by:

Ministry of Tourism and Sport of the Government of Andalusia.

ISIA: International Association of Ski Teachers.

INTERSKI: International Council for Teaching Terminology.

TRAINING DISABLED

Skiing for people with disabilities is another aspect of this company. It is one of the most traditional schools with the highest number of qualified ski instructors in Spain.

SERVICES

In addition to skiing and snowboarding services, EOE offers quality teaching programs at Telemark, Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing routes.

Its extensive team of ski/snowboarding instructors allows classes in different languages, with special emphasis on English and Portuguese, but also with the possibility of Russian, Swedish, Norwegian and Slovak.

The Official Ski School is registered in the Active Tourism Registry of the Community of Andalusia in accordance with Decree 20/2002 of January 29 regulating the provision of services in the Rural Environment and Active Tourism.

Super instruction for two hours (which flew by) resulting in a "never been skiing on snow" to feeling confident to turn , plough, go on different ski lifts , stop, restart and generally be a lot calmer about slopes ! Very friendly team right from booking through to finding the instructor on piste . Excellent English too .

Ask for Quique Diego for the best lesson ever. I've skied all over the Alps and have stayed many times at Club Med where the lessons are included but this was the best.

Very professional, organized, pleasant crew that answer to e-mails promptly. Basically my 7 year old boy learned how to ski in 4 days of private lessons with a very nice, patient ski teacher called “Mercedes” (Chede – Prof 343). My sun does not easily like people nor new activities and he loved her and learned to love skiing. So I... More

There are many ski/snowboard schools in Sierra Nevada but this one excels in the way they relate to students, not only during the stay but also afterwards during the year. Teachers are very good and ready to teach any person with any skills. Prices are comparable with others but the degree of attention makes them different for the better.

We were at the coast in Nerja on a hot 23 C Tuesday in April and decided to drive up to the Sierra Nevada ski resort, a 1.5 - 2 hour drive max. When we got there we couldn't believe it, the gondola was running and skiers were on the piste! It was a cool 3 C, but sunny and... More
