Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to buy a ski lift pass? 

Children and adults all need a ski pass; buying ski lessons does not grant you access to the ski lifts. Ski passes are free for children under 5 but they must be in possession of their free ski pass which you can pick up from the lift pass offices or at the ski school offices, with proof of age (e.g. passport). If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the ski school. 

What language are the lessons taught in?

All of our instructors are French. Around 60 of them can teach in English, some in Italian and a very small minority speak a little Dutch.

We ask you to choose the language when booking group lessons online so that we can try our best to allocate an instructor who speaks your language. Please bear in mind that we cannot meet everybodies demands for group lessons. However, children learn well by copying what the instructors are doing so the language barrier is rarely a problem.

For private lessons, you can request the language spoken. 

Is the equipment provided?

No, equipment is not included in our offer. Children and adults must come to the lessons with their own equipment (skis, shoes and helmet). No poles until the 1st (or 2nd depending on the instructor) star level. Please contact sport shops in the resort to enquire about ski hire. 

Is insurance included in the prices mentioned? 

Students are not insured by the school. Unless you buy an all-inclusive offer which includes the Carré Neige insurance, we advise that you consider taking Carré Neige insurance. This can be bought at the ski lift pass offices, or at the ESF office if you are taking part in a 6 day group lesson.

What should I do if I cannot find any available lessons? 

Contact the ESF office quickly so we can help you find what you are looking for.
