The Ecole de Ski Internationale (or ESI) is an independent ski school, which operates across the French Alps as well as in Switzerland and Italy. They are based in La Clusaz and offer group and private lessons.
What Makes ESI such a great Ski School?
A real bonus for English speaking guests is that many of their friendly instructors speak very good English. Smaller group sizes and experienced instructors make the ESI a fantastic ski school and a favourite of OVO Network and our guests.
Group Ski Lessons
ESI offer group lessons for children and adults alike. Children can start from the age of four in the reassuring environment of the Mice Club. Small group sizes mean that the dedicated instructors at ESI can give each skier the attention they deserve!
Private Ski Lessons
Private lessons allow for bespoke learning suited to your needs and desires. The instructors at ESI have a diverse range of skills and can offer private lessons in nearly every form of skiing that exists! Technical piste, off-piste, freestyle, ski touring, telemark and snowboard lessons are all offered.
The ESI also offers other activities for your enjoyment. Take to the skies on a tandem paraglide flight over the village, or hit the slopes on a traditional sledge called a Yooner.
Unless otherwise stated the meeting point for all group lessons is at the bottom of the Patinoire and Beauregard lifts by the ice rink. Meeting points for private lessons can usually be more flexible, within reason, and can be arranged with the office.
Some lessons and activities can be booked online, however some must be made by phone or email. The office team all speak good English. Visit ESI for all price and booking information.
