My wife and I recently took ski lessons in Chamonix for 5 days. We had an excellent guide called Jerome who was extremely patient and knowledgeable. We would definitely take more lessons with ESF when we return to Chamonix.

First issue was told we could book less than a week if we came to the office during our visit. Not true was only allowed to purchase 6 day class. OK no problem was going to have my kids ski everyday anyway. Made sure the instructors could speak english as my kids do not speak any french. Day one after... More

The kids instructor seemed quite impatient with the kids in her group and couldn't seem to keep track of them, at one point she said she was unhappy with my son's progress and had discussed with his teacher from last year who agreed with her (he had never been there before, it was his first time skiing!!). Lots of younger... More

We booked private snowboarding lessons for beginners and had much fun! We saw a huge improvement after each lesson. The guides were experienced and friendly!

Booked online before we went on hols. Really easy to do. Our 7 year old daughter had skied before in Switzerland so was ok with the basics. I did not imagine that half way through her second week skiing, she would be doing slalom, with poles and be in control! We were really pleased at how much ESF at Les... More

La Rosiere, France is a fantastic place to learn to ski, especially with the help from the amazing team at ESF. ESF offer ski lessons for all ages and abilities – from beginners to advanced skiers. We had been skiing before but we weren’t feeling too confident, after all it had been 5 years since we’d been on the slopes,... More

We were very saddened by Betty, our instructor. The first day of Private Tuition for our 9 year old was fine, the feedback from both our daughter and Betty was ok. We booked for the following day but as it was snowing it seemed to really affect the standard of her teaching by the same Private instructor, Betty. She decided... More

Read a lot of reviews when choosing to use this company and understand the differences between guiding and instructors. We were a group of over 50 skiers from NH that hired off piste guides(or what we thought would be off piste). We had such a varied experience. We were here to ski for 6 days and prepaid for an off...
