Val Thorens Ski Schools
There are five main ski schools in Val Thorens, they range from the biggest ski school in France to a small local based ski school. They are called: Ecole du Ski Francais or ESF for short, Prosneige, Skicool, Free School Attitude and Magic in Motion.
All instructors no matter what ski school they work for would more or less have to take the same exams, therefore are qualified to the same standard. The difference in our opinion is the quality of the school, when booking find out how many people are in the class. After all if there are 20 people in your class how much time will the instructor spend on you? It would be much better if only 8 people where in the group for example.
Every season the school holidays are the weeks that book up the quickest, so don’t hang about!
For your first week of lessons try and get in a class of no more than 8-10 people, it’s a good amount of people for your instructor to monitor but also big enough for you to hide behind someone when you don’t want the instructor to watch you. Most of the instructors speak English, but make sure you clarify you want an English speaker otherwise you might end up with a language barrier.
