Handiski lessons, fun for everyone

The Ecole du Ski Francais is actively involved in teaching disabled skiers, a group that requires special knowledge.

Every year instructors follow advanced training so that they can teach all types of physical or mental disability and more and more schools are acquiring equipment suitable for disabled skiers including sit skis uniskis and bi-skis. They will help you to explore the mountain environment, discovering and sharing the thrills of snowsports and pushing back the limits of disability to autonomy. It is essential to contact the ESF of your choice before your holiday to book your instructor and equipment.

The ESF also works closely in many resorts with ski 2 freedom who can help with all your specialist needs to make your holiday into something special.

The types of lessons available

At ESF a Private Lesson gives you the chance to work on your Skiing, Snowboarding or Nordic Skiing technique under the watchful eye of an experienced ESF instructor. 

Whatever your discipline, level or age a Private Lesson with ESF is an experience that will not disappoint. We try and offer the following opportunities: 

  • An analysis and correction of your mistakes. 
  • A choice of specific exercises for making faster progress. 
  •  Advice on how to overcome apprehension. 
  •  A review the basics. 
  •  Maybe try a different discipline like biathlon. 
  •  Try new techniques and other sports. 
Private Lessons are different in every resort so be sure to contact your chosen school before you arrive.
At ESF, Group Lessons are popular in all disciplines from Skiing, Snowboarding and in Nordic Ski. 

A typical Group Lesson can consist of a group of between 2 to 10 people. Individuals are selected at the beginning of the week based on previous ESF experience and class levels achieved. All groups are instructed by an experienced ESF professional equipped for all terrains and conditions.

From complete beginners to the expert skier wanting to improve technique, ESF offer the best access to the slopes, a total discovery of the ski area chosen, unlimited opportunities to improve and fun and friendly instructors. Over 80% of ESF instructors now speak English. 
For a total experience in learning you can Hire an Instructor for a complete personal or group experience.

Unlike a Private Lesson your instructor can be booked for the morning, afternoon or all day and will be on hand to give 100% personal instruction on technique, mountain access, mountain safety and full and unrivalled experience on the mountains.
