Guided Ski Touring lessons with
ESF this winter


Ski touring is an activity where someone skis uphill and then skis down again without needing to remove the skis. Typically touring is done off-piste and outside of ski resorts. Tours can often extend over a period of more than one day. Typically, skis, bindings, and boots allow for free movement of the heel to enable a walking pace, as in Nordic, and unlike in Alpine skiing.

Ski touring and its sub-genre ski mountaineering have grown in popularity as a way to spend time outdoors. It has been adopted by skiers looking for new snow, by alpinists, and by those seeking to avoid the high costs of traditional alpine skiing at resorts.

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.
