ESF Les Arcs 1600 Ski School, Les Arcs

Ski and snowboard lessons with special beginners packages available

ESF Arc 1600 is part of the world's largest ski school, with over 60 instructors available. They teach downhill skiing, snowboarding, freeride, telemark & snowshoeing, as well as organising off-piste tours.

They offer lessons and courses for all ages, from children starting with 3 years old up to 12, to teens and adults lessons, mountain guiding or off-piste skiing, including private lessons and group courses.

At their children's lessons kids, can experience the joys of the snow. Those up to 12 years old can start skiing and progress in a friendly group, lunch included for a full-day package, have private lessons or try out snowboard.

For kids aged 13 years and above there are group lessons, teens competition classes, slalom, snowboarding and private lessons to choose from. You don't have to be able to ski or snowboard as the ski school will take you through a step by step programme to help you learn.

As to adults, you can choose from private or group lessons, for skiing or snowboarding, off-piste routes or slalom training. No experience is necessary as you will be taken through a step by step programme to help you discover new skills. Why not try something completely different and go for a snow-shoe walk? Get away from the busy pistes and go for an adventure in the snow!

Would you like to progress faster, overcome apprehension, review the basics or try out snowboarding, telemarking, freestyle, freeriding, mogul skiing...? Then private lessons with ESF can help you.
