As beginner skiers we came to the resort with experienced friends and thought the best thing to do would be take some professional lessons, and not learn from friends.
We found Prosneige through a booking agent so had no idea what level of service to expect on arrival.
Upon arrival we were kitted out with appropriate boots, skis and poles (we brought our on helmets) and were set for our beginner group lesson. The group consisted of six people, two English and four French speakers.
Our instructor Teo is a very experienced skier with over 40 years to draw from, something that was comforting for beginners like us.
Of our five booked lessons our first was mastering the basics of balance, starting and stopping, using the magic carpet lifts and generally becoming comfortable.
Day two was refining what we had learnt on day one and adding in some turning drills.
Day three was again refining day one and two skills and finishing off with a short test of these skills on a blue run.
Day four started with checking the turning and then we embarked on a full length blue run with many turns, undulations of around 1.5km. Certainly a test for those that only skied during their lesson.
We were then taken onto the first chair lift, shown how to use them and then finished off the lesson with a further 1.5km of blue runs f not more.
Day five would have been more of the same, but the wind in the morning of the lesson had closed all the lifts. We awaited a call to confirm if our lesson was on or not in the afternoon, but failed to get one....a shame to miss the last day, but I think we were both happy with what we had acomplished under the tutorship of Teo.

During the lesson experience I found my first set of boots very uncomfortable, restricting the blood flow to my feet at times. The staff at Prosneige had for me on day two a further two pairs of boots to try. These were better but a fourth pair was found for me from Val Thoren that was tried.
If I had just hired my equipment from another vendor I am not sure I would have had such personal service.

So as beginners we leave after one week having accomplished more than we set out to do, and therefore are happy.
We could not have asked for a better instructor, great sense of humour, not too pushy and confidence inspiring. Thank you Teo and hope to see you next time.

Great experience. We went for 1st time ski with our family (kids with 5/9 years old). What a fantastic experience with Prosneige. Staff in the office very kind and supportive, reservations, payment... everything went well. Finally the most important one, we booked a private class and the "teacher" was simply the best (Alessandro Migglia). Very patient and kind with kids, really make us enjoy our time... We left Les Menuires with the feeling of want more!!
Once again Alessandro, thank you very much for your friendness, support and time!!
Big hug from your Brazilian Family!

As point to be improved, since was our first time in the region, find the office wasn't so easy. Maybe I little be more clear instruction will be helpful.

I was very impressed with this company.. We received a welcome email the week before our booking (half term February) reminding us of our booking and sharing information like meeting points and times. On the first day, all the instructors had copies of group lists with all the children's names on it, so it was relatively simple to find the correct group. This was a bonus when dropping of 3 children (11, 8 and 3). Both my elder children came home smiling and raving about their morning - which is a first! The instructors for the toddler class were very patient and supportive.
Everyday the instructors were happy to engage with the parents and provide feedback on how everyone's children had progressed that day.
Many thanks to Guillame, Guilia and Hugo. I feel that my elder 2 children made great progress that week and that their confidence levels and speed improved greatly. I would definitely recommend them.

Dear 312cj1,

Thank you very much for your feedback!

Very nice to hear that the kids progressed well and that they enjoyed themselves! The first day at a ski school is always the most difficult one, I am glad to hear that our way of working/managing worked out well. We work very hard on daily basis to consolidate our high serivce standards.

Thanks again for your review and untill a next time at our ski school Prosneige.
