Ecole du Ski Français
This area has some of the best lift-serviced off-piste in Europe, so it’s hardly surprising that Ecole du Ski Français offers lessons in Val d’Isere to help you navigate the back country. On a Privilege Morning, level-four skiers and above will be taken to the side of the mountain piste skiers do not ski on; there’s a maximum of six in a group, all of whom are equipped with air bags in case of an avalanche.
More than 300 qualified ESF instructors work on the Val d’Isère side of the Espace Killy, and there is plenty to keep them occupied. Instruction in freestyle, competition skiing, and cross-country techniques are all offered for those willing to learn.
