Private ski lesson

One of my sons had not skied for a couple years so I wanted a private lesson. I visited the office of the French ski school and was courteously attended. The two hour lesson was... read more

The service from ESF Morzine was unprofessional and unsatisfactory from the start. The drop off and pick-up were chaotic and stressful for parents and children. One morning after spending an age chatting to their colleagues the instructor blamed the children for delaying the start of the lesson. On another day ESF managed to lose 4 children from our son's group... More

We took our son out of his group ski lessons after only 2 days. Instructor was rude, impatient, mocked him in front of the other children and became aggressive towards me when I followed their lesson on day 2 after I witnessed her being negative towards him the previous day. Strongly recommend avoiding.

it's not as expensive as the other schools and the instructors are really good. the groups are max 12 people (which we had) but we had also 2 instructors, so it was excellent.

We use the ESF for ski lessons every year. I like their excellent lessons and their friendly humorous attitude.

Booked in for our 6 year old to have morning lessons and childcare in the piou piou club, after the first day he said he wanted lessons both morning and afternoon! Easy to amend and so relieved that he liked it that much. All staff were friendly and accommodating, I had a preconception that they may be quite brash/strict but... More

One of my sons had not skied for a couple years so I wanted a private lesson. I visited the office of the French ski school and was courteously attended. The two hour lesson was well structured by Johan and really helped the boy gain confidence in the sport. It also helped know which slopes were best as snow conditions... More

The two instructors we had were excellent: very patient and happy in their approach. We all became better skiers for the experience, whilst having a good time doing it. The instructors we had were Olivier and Benjamin - thank you very much to you both

Our 4 year old daughter went to ESF last week only being able to stand up on skis and glide along a little bit. After day 5 of 2 hour lessons she was skiing blue routes with me pretty much unassisted. Teachers were firm (as needed for 4 year olds!) but fair and friendly. Will definitely use them again next...

I was apprehensive about this. My kids, aged 4 and 6 had skied before, but were of different levels, which can be problematic when both in the same lesson. The instructor, Lolo (Laurence) was excellent and made it work! They both progressed really well. They were happy and positive about their lessons. An excellent experience. Thank you LoLo!
