Over time, we have noticed that more Australian families are exploring beyond the traditional destinations of Whistler, the US and Japan, and looking for a more interesting experience. With its spectacular mountains, European culture, charming alpine villages, and ease of travel, Switzerland is a perfect choice. You have great European destinations like Paris, Rome, and the Italian lakes all easily accessible by train. Just as soon as you have finished skiing the best mountains in the world…

What we offer.
Kids and teen coaching weeks to make technical leaps for your children, with adult technical and ladies specific courses for you!
Kids Camps: Age 7-12 years
The key for children of this age is that they have fun and keep loving their skiing as they progress. Our kids camps aim to improved balance, co-ordination, strength and technique. Experienced coaches are on hand with a rounded programme including technical and video feedback, variable terrain and time in stubbies and gates, children develop towards dynamic skiing with carving for acceleration.
Teen Camps: 13+ years
Inspiring coaches who model great skiing and respect for the mountains will help to develop your teens all round on the snow. With time in steeps, bumps, stubbies and on the race piste, teens develop their skills. A key part of the course is also encouraging them to be aware of their skiing and recognise and adapt to their own feedback.
Both the kids and teen camps include off snow activities such as ice skating, climbing, ski tuning workshop, and evening presentations. Avalanche awareness and off piste training is also included. At the end of the week, everyone celebrates with awards and a party!
With our adult technical courses running over the week, you can watch your skiing improve as you explore the Swiss Alps. There will be time exploring the resort, in different terrain, and always finding the best snow of the moment. Our instructors will act as your personal local expert whilst developing your ski technique.
Here, with a female instructor and in an encouraging atmosphere, women can ski at their best. These courses are great for improving confidence on the snow, and remembering how much fun skiing should be!
Southern Cross Trophy.
One family will take away the Southern Cross Trophy for the week! Prizes are awarded for racing, skiing and improvement.
Exclusive to ES in Switzerland is the “Flaik” GPS tracker system, as used in top North American resorts such as Whistler, Steamboat and Winter Park. All children in these courses wear GPS trackers so that we can locate them at any time.
