Customer reviews

On the first day we realised our kids (5 & 7) were the only English speakers in the class. The teachers were superb at getting round this and the way they did this made the relationship stronger. Our kids loved the lessons and loved the instructors, and my son cried to say goodbye on the last day. I think it was character building and it was lovely and I have so much respect for the ESF ski school in La Clusaz. And both children were doing blue runs and grinding (little) rails by half way through the week :-)

Really excellent for kids' ski lessons. The teachers really identified their strengths and weaknesses well, and tailored the lessons to each child (even though they were in a group). Teachers were very approachable when we had questions. Would highly recommend.

The kids had a brilliant time. From complete novices to competent on blues and steady on reds. Amazing! Their teacher was lovely, really patient and kind. Merci!

Dear Sir/Madam,

Our family has just returned from a wonderful few days in Chatel and I would like to thank the staff at ESF Chatel for their superb service. My husband and I don't ski and this was our first ever ski trip so we were delighted that the ladies in the booking office were so helpful.

Not only did they book the private lessons they informed us of where to get the Telecabin and which passes to purchase. The four ski instructors ( Bernard, Thierry, Jourdan & H? ) were excellent. They pitched the lessons perfectly to our children's level of ability and they were great fun.

I would definitely recommend ESF and these instructors. We will definitely book with you again in our next ski holiday.

Many thanks Rachel Barber Mother of Twig & Charles Barber
