Good reasons to choose ESI

We limit the size of our groups (6 to 8 students maximum per instructor) to give you the time and attention you need and to promote conviviality.

Our instructors are trained and certified by the National Ski and Mountaineering School of Chamonix and receive additional training each year.

As true craftsmen, we take the time to listen to you and to explore with you your needs and desires in order to offer you the teaching and activities that best suit you, within a unique offer by its variety. 

To evaluate your level, we carry out, without you or your child really noticing, a "continuous control". The awarding of medals is a key moment in your child's week, it is an integral part of his or her learning path.

    Yooner

    Proposé par ESI La Clusaz

    If you don't know what to do between skiing and sledding, there is a new form of sliding which is a mixture of these two activities:...

    You are sitting 20 centimeters above the ground on a skate, your feet touch the snow to help the direction while your hands are stuck to the handle to brake the machine (by traction). 
    Slide on the slopes easily, have even stronger and more surprising sensations, all with a very short learning curve... Its fun and easy to use side allows you to master it totally in one descent.
    The yooner is light, easy to handle, equipped with a shock absorber for more comfort and a skate allowing you to "cut curves" as in skiing.
    Try it, fun guaranteed!
