EACH TO THEIR OWN 3 VALLÉES

Age is of no importance…let yourself go and discover the sheer joy of skiing, as it releases emotions and provides unique sensations like no other. Learning is a different experience for children and adults: while children are used to being in the position of a learner, this is often no longer the case for adults.
However, all those working in Les 3 Vallées are particularly keen to offer beginners of any age the best possible conditions for learning, in comfort and safety... without forgetting to have fun!

The mountain summits are not just for strong skiers; many easy itineraries invite those who are new to skiing to reach new heights as well.
The optimal conditions for learning can sometimes seem like mere details, but they often make a big difference: especially where exceptional grooming of the slopes and snow conditions are concerned... two very important details when learning to ski!
Finally, whatever your age or your objectives, the teaching methods of an ESF French Ski School instructor ensure efficient and swift progress for everyone, whether in private lessons or in a group with other beginners... (where some fun banter and great team spirit are guaranteed!).
