Why Ski With ES ?


Instructors Who Come To You

It is our instructors’ mission that you really enjoy your holiday both on and off the slopes, and make the most of your time together. They are happy to meet in your chalet or hotel before your lessons commence to discuss exactly what you want and expect, and to share their extensive resort knowledge.


Fun and Friendly Instructors

Our multilingual instructors are carefully chosen not only for their excellent qualifications, but also for their fun, friendliness and adaptability; they are ‘your’ instructor for your time in resort.  We train them intensively to our own standards so that they add fun and value to your holiday, and they are requested by return clients year after year.

Wine and grapes


European Snowsport instructors know the mountain intimately so that you enjoy the best slopes and conditions possible on any day.  They also have valuable local knowledge and can advise on the very best bars, restaurants and fun activities to enjoy once your ski or snowboard equipment is stowed away.


Kids Groups with GPS Tracking

Our kids’ lessons are strictly limited to groups of six, and five for Penguins, so each member receives loads of attention, instruction and supervision, and has fun while making fantastic progress – there’s no hanging around getting bored and cold in our kids’ lessons.  They won’t be able to wait to see their friendly instructor and new friends again each morning.
