Group Lessons

Group lessons are the ideal way to learn and improve your skiing or winter sport discipline. You will join a group with other skiers of the same or similar level and take to the slopes of your chosen resort. Group lessons are suitable for all levels and standards. 

Our esf instructors ensure that all participants receive the same attention during group lessons. Group lessons are offered in all disciplines such as skiing, snowboarding, off-piste, hiking, Nordic and competition. As a collective, each esf group lesson is different and reinforces everyone's involvement, in a friendly, relaxed and sporty atmosphere.

Private Lessons

Private lessons allow you to learn with
one-to-one tuition or in small groups of family and friends. Private tuition allows our esf team to offer detailed teaching and with more attention given to the individual or individuals.
