The types of lessons available

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.
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.
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.
