Learning can be fun!!
Mar 2019 • Family
Everything was so well organised from beginner to off-piste lessons for the people in our party. Claire was particularly amazing, patient with excellent spoken English !! She made the learning for beginners so much fun!! My daughter Niamh who is a good skier also took lessons with her to learn off-piste, speed and backward skiing! She loved her . Highly recommend Ecole de Ski 360

Completely transformed our skiing!
Jan 2020
We had a family lesson skiing- Mum, and 2 teenagers - and Melanie the instructor just seemed to do something magical, and had us doing steep reds and even jumps with confidence and excitement. The lesson completely exceeded my expectations and we were so exhilarated and buzzing afterwards. I still don't know how she did it actually, but I think she exudes such expertise and skill that we just followed her without question and she took us beyond what we thought we could achieve. My 13 year old son was also infinitely impressed that she had been a professional snowboarder. A very cool woman indeed. I can't recommend her highly enough. Merci!!

I would give more than 5 stars if I could!
Jan 2020
I'm a really nervous skier and have been desperate to find an instructor who understands my caution and helps me gain confidence. Instructors before have become frustrated if I don't progress as quickly as they want me to, lessons seemed to follow their agenda rather than mine. Every time I have booked lessons, I always say that I'm a nervous skier but this has never been passed on to the actual instructor - until now. Julie in the office at 360 Ski School was lovely to deal with when booking and clearly passed on my comments to my instructor before my lessons.

My instructor was called Roxanne and was completely amazing! Her entire approach was like a breath of fresh air. She was super-friendly, calm and utterly delightful. She took everything at my pace and made each lesson so much fun. Roxanne is clearly a wonderful skier but unlike many, has not forgotten what it is like to be a learner. She is so motivating and her approach saw me progress more than any other year both in actual ability but also confidence. She is a complete and utter star!

Best lesson!
Jan 2020 • Family
Had a private lesson with Claire yesterday and it was fantastic. I had been nervously doing blues with bad technique and she easily explained how to make improvements and took me outside my comfort zone to show me what i could do. Skiied red runs with her and now look forward to doing them, thanks so much!! Completely worth it.

Private snowboard class
Jan 2020 • Solo
Bought my husband a private snowboarding class with 360 for his Xmas present. He’s a intermediate boarder but is self taught so his technique isn’t great. His teacher was amazing and really pushed him in terms of technique. He was absolutely buzzing afterwards and said his teacher was super professional, knowledgeable and a nice guy to chat to on the lifts. He thinks his boarding has been transformed by what he learnt and he’s really excited to do another 1-2-1 in a years time to see how he’s progressed. Highly recommend. Great service and price

Wonderful experience in 360 Avoriaz Ski School
Dec 2019
Had a wonderful time. Small school, friendly staff. Our kids were in group lessons with Bernard and loved every minute, by the second day didn't want to get off the slopes. We were with Jean Luc, who was brilliant. Their whole attitude and atmosphere was very welcoming and better than I expected. Thank you!

Fantastic ski school
Feb 2019 • Family
We have mainly skied in Austria as we find the ski schools generally excellent for the kids whilst in France we've previously found them a bit variable. However 360 ski school in Samoens is by far the best ski school we've encountered anywhere. The difference in standard of our 9 year old son from beginning to end of the week was astonishing despite only having half day lessons. From struggling down steeper blues on the first day, he went on to skiing very comfortably down steeper reds and even some blacks by the last day and any fears he previously held were gone. The instructors spoke good English and although groups were mixed, communication was clearly very effective and friendly, and they seemed to have a lot of fun whilst learning rapidly. Highly recommended.

Adult private lessons - variable but mainly great!
Jan 2019 • Friends
We were 2 beginner adults and booked 3 private lessons in Samoens. We arrived at our accommodation on the Saturday so we booked a Sunday afternoon lesson, then Monday and Tuesday mornings. Due to the morning/afternoon split we had one teacher (Clare) on the Sunday then a different one (Roxanne) on the Monday and Tuesday. I would have expected this might have been a bit disappointing because it would be difficult to build on the first lesson due to the change of teacher. However, we were actually really glad because unfortunately we didn't think that Clare was a particularly great teacher; one of us was less confident than the other and got stuck in a rut during the lesson with Clare, in retrospect we could have done with a slower start and more focused, concentrated teaching rather than just trial and error.

However Roxanne was AMAZING, she started us off with some very basic principles and got us to do loads of useful exercises concentrating on various techniques/elements (these were also really fun - 'Pretend you are an EAGLE!!' etc). She was patient and super enthusiastic and lovely. By the end of our sessions we both felt more confident and felt that we had learnt loads with Roxanne.

I do realise that teaching will be a matter of personal preferences influencing the teacher/pupil dynamic but I feel that Roxanne could have taught anyone, with a lot of success, and clearly she is hugely experienced, whereas it was a bit of a shame that we felt Clare was not quite experienced enough to be a really great teacher - hence only rating it 'very good'.

The booking experience was excellent and we had no problem meeting our teachers at samoens 1600, all very efficient and smooth.

Fabulous Ski School
Feb 2019 • Family
Took the plunge this year and sent our 5 year old to ski school as much as for him as for us! Although I've been coming to Les Gets for a number of years I hadnt paid that much attention to the ski schools so he ended up here due to a recommendation. ( Two years previously I'd seen an instructor from another school on his phone while teaching infants so at least knew what school I was avoiding!) Was booked in for a 2 hour lunchtime slot with Cederic. This meant we could ski when it was quiet and then have a late lunch..when it was quiet also. Arrived at the meeting point and met Cederic and the 4 other members of his class. Having been stuck in the middle of many never ending ski school snakes, 5 in a class is unheard of. The class were all between 5 and 8 and Cederic managed them wonderfully, even knowing when he needed to jump on a chairlift with a suddenly nervous one. Archie came back enthused each day and had come on so much by the end of the week that we were able to take him on red runs and even sneaked a cheeky black in when on Mont Chery. I was lucky enough to find myself behind the class one day and while it was great to see them all follow their instructor, what was even better to see was Cederic was watching them all the time giving out positive encouragement and instruction. Archie went back to his lesson on the dry slope when we got back this week and his instructor couldnt believe how much he had come on. Without Cederic this wouldnt have happened. Dont go past this ski school, Cederic was fabulous, and I get the impression that all their instructors are that good and attentive as well.
