Especially if you stay in Avoriaz with Club Med, taking lessons with ESF is super easy as they pick you up right down from the hotel. Both ski and snowboardinstructors were friendly, dedicated and knowledgeable. I actually only had positive experiences with ESF.

We found the instructors here top class in comparison to other ski schools. Both our children 12 and 10 got wonderful instructions and tips for improving their skiing unlike other places where they just followed their instructors around the slopes.

One of the reasons we ski in France is because of the professionalism of the Instructors. ESF are very good for both adults and kids.
