Generally, the smaller independent schools have smaller classes than the ESF. All offer a range of lessons for all standards of skiers and Snowboarders, from complete beginner to a refresher lesson. Lessons can be for half days or full days with private lessons available for anyone with specific needs.  We do advise pre-booking any lessons, essential on the at peak season to avoid any disappointments. You will be required to book your lessons direct with the ski school.

You will need to book a Monday so ski school for 5 days, this not only saves a little bit of money, but you will get the last day skiing free, to ski with your group.
