ES Penguins

ES Penguins provides a fun and safe learning and playing on-snow environment for children aged 3 to 5 years. We help your children to get moving on the snow in a caring atmosphere, with lots of games, songs, and fun.  We have our smallest group size for Penguins, with a maximum of JUST 5 in a group.

All our Penguins instructors are experienced, enthusiastic and dedicated teachers, who love working with, and motivating, young children.

All Penguins are awarded a medal, certificate and goody bag at prize giving at the end of their time with us.

All the children are provided with a bright readily identifiable bib. Helmets are compulsory.

Afternoon Club

Penguins Afternoon Club is a collaboration between ES and Petit Verbier nannies enabling our smaller clients to enjoy a full day of skiing and play, so that parents can maximize their time on the slopes. Petit Verbier provide a structured programme for the afternoon session, running straight after skiing from 12.30-4pm. It includes lunch and daily set activities in both an indoor and outdoor setting which encourage learning and creativity.

Each weekday will provide a different structured activity including kids’ yoga, music time, arts and crafts, and theme days. These activities are run by Petit Verbier nannies who are fully insured, first aid trained, reference checked, police checked, highly experienced, and, of course, love caring for children.

ES Kids Academy

Children aged 6 to 12 have fun learning to ski with our experienced ES instructors in small groups of no more than 6.  Kids Academy offers a great alternative to private lessons, connecting your children with other children at their ski level on the mountain. They ski and play onslope games with their new friends in a safe environment with GPS tracking via Flaik and brightly coloured bibs for all children.  The week ends with an awards ceremony with medals, certificates, and a goody bag for everybody.

Focus on ski improvement is encouraged by our ES Kids Academy levels.  We keep a note of the level awarded for the next time your child skis with us so they can join the correct level group from the start of the first morning.

Everybody joining Kids Academy wears a Flaik GPS Tracker.   European Snowsport is proud to be the only provider of the Flaik GPS tracking system in Switzerland. The Flaik system allows our office to track your whole day in ski school or in a private lesson.

You can revisit your ski day to see where you skied, how far, how fast, how many vertical metres and where you stopped for lunch.

We also use the Flaik System for safety. With the live tracking running in the ES office, we will always know where our students are on the slopes. Our instructors also carry a Flaik tracker so we can see that all the groups stay safely together.

The flexibility offered by Kids’ Academy is brilliant – it is possible to attend half or full days, and a convivial lunch with other Academy skiers in a mountain restaurant is included in full days.

Helmets are compulsory!

Flaik GPS

European Snowsport is proud to be the only provider of the Flaik GPS tracking system in Switzerland. The Flaik system allows our office to track your whole day in ski school or in a private lesson.

Every child on our Kids Academy and Freeski programmes wears a tracker. They can be tracked live whilst they are on the slopes, and can also revisit the day to find out where they skied, how far they went, how fast, how many vertical metres they skied, and where they stopped for lunch.

We also use the Flaik System for safety. With the live tracking running in the ES office, we will always know where our students are on the slopes. Our instructors also carry a Flaik tracker so we can see that all the groups stay safely together.

For a fun day out, we can set up “scavenger hunt” style races. The Flaik trackers monitor the competitors as they attempt to complete a digitized course. This offers a unique experience on the mountain as they race around the resort to various checkpoints completing a series of challenges along the way. It has proved to be very popular with charity events, large groups, and corporate clients.

ES Freeski

ES Freeski is designed to build on skills gained in conventional ski school lessons and for having fun learning how to make the most out of new terrain.

Learn to master moguls, tackle jumps, rails, and boxes in the ski park, and hit the powder.  Time spent with ES Freeski opens up the whole mountain for you to enjoy with like-minded skiers.

Safety is a key concern and each skier receives individual coaching in a small group; there is no compulsion to attempt anything, and no peer pressure.  The coach teaches safely, responsibly, and in a way that builds confidence and technique in a controlled fashion.

Each week ends with an awards ceremony, and our Freeski teens are each given a medal and certificate.
