Learn to ski with ESF this winter

For skiing to be a pleasurable experience, two closely related objectives have to be achieved. BOOK A LESSON WITH ESF TODAY

Alpine skiing, or downhill skiing, is the sport or recreation of sliding down snow-covered hills on skis with fixed-heel bindings. It is characterized by the requirement for mechanical assistance getting to the top of the hill, since the equipment does not allow efficient walking or hiking, unlike cross-country skis which use free-heel bindings.

It is typically practiced at ski resorts which provide services such as ski lifts, artificial snow making and grooming, first aid, and restaurants. Back-country skiers use alpine skiing equipment to ski off the marked pistes, with the transport by helicopter or snowcat.

The types of lessons available

At ESF, Group Lessons are popular in all disciplines from Skiing, Snowboarding and in Nordic Ski. 

A typical Group Lesson can consist of a small number of individuals of the same ability. 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. 
At ESF a Private Lesson gives you the chance to work on your skiing/snowboarding technique under the watchful eye of an experienced ESF instructor.

You may even want to use the Private Lesson introduce your children to the pleasure of the slopes. 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 slalom or mogul skiing. 
  • Try new techniques and other sports like telemark or snowboarding. 
Private Lessons are different in every resort so be sure to contact your chosen school before you arrive.
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.
