The Reviews

  • "I have just returned from a week skiing holiday in Alpe d'huez and our group of 3 had 4 private lessons during the week. I booked through our tour company on arrival and our instructor Mattia Saletta was recommended to us. I cannot speak highly enough of him, his spoken English was excellent, he was very friendly with very good teaching skills that everyone could relate to. He was constructive with individual feedback throughout and understood the needs of the group perfectly. All of us found that our skiing improved whilst learning in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I would certainly recommend Mattia to anyone wanting any form of group or private lessons with ESF." - Trip Advisor
  • "I had a private, one-and-a-half hour session with an instructor called Mathilde, who was very friendly and constructive; and my wife and daughters had a session with an instructor called Remy, who was similarly helpful. All of us found the instruction took our skiing up a notch, but most importantly this happened in a pleasant, fun atmosphere." - Trip Advisor
  • "Excellent patient English speaking instructors. Good size groups and all of similar ability would definetly have lessons again if I go skiing I felt like I progressed well over the week." - Trip Advisor
