Why the ESF ski school Tignes Le Lac is an excellent place to learn how to ski + what else we offer

Located in the Espace Killy ski area in the Savoie region (named after the famous skier Jean-Claude Killy) our ski school in Tignes Le Lace is right in the middle of the action. It is undeniably the ultimate resort to have fun and socialize whilst learning new skills on the slopes.

We are happy to offer so much more than the standard skiing and snowboarding lessons. For example, you can take part in a special ‘yurt night’ which includes soup by the fire, a traditional meal and the possibility of downhill tobogganing! If you are on a work trip, ESF Business can organize group activities including evening ski and snowshoe outings, snowmobile rides in the moonlight, dinner in a cozy yurt and heliski trips.
