What days are the daycare centres open?

Sunday to Friday from 8:45am to 5:15pm.  Daycare services are closed on Saturdays mainly due to the changeover of guests.

Will it be possible for my child to take a nap?

Yes if they need too. There are rooms with child friendly beds.

How would you suggest I dress my child each day?

  • Ski Jacket or warm coat that is waterproof
  • Mittens rather than gloves.
  • Sunglasses (on a cord) for the glare and sun cream that is UV15 min.

Can we attend the classes?

We realise that you would like to watch your child learn to ski, however, when a child gets frustrated or can't manage first time (which is rare anyhow) the instruction, they tend to shed tears and call for mummy or daddy. This is only natural. If you are in view our ESF instructor will immediately lose the control and trust of your child. Therefore, we would prefer you to either 1) hide behind a structure out of view or 2) leave the teaching to us and go and enjoy your holiday. The sooner your child gets through the cold times, frustrating times, toppling over times, the sooner he/she will be skiing on the main slopes with you.

How is my child evaluated during the week?

ESF instructors evaluate the progress of the child throughout the week. At the end of the week a short courses will be formed to allow the instructors to check the technique acquired by your child.

Does my child receive a medal?

Friday is the day of the medal ceremony.
Each child will be given a medal by our ESF instructors to finish the week with a moment of conviviality.
If your child already has a book of abilities please give it to the instructor during the middle of the week.

Do you recommend lessons for beginner children?

In many cases it is a Private Lesson that we recommended as it helps beginner children overcome their natural apprehension of skiing.

I wish two children to be in the same group, what should I do?

Our groups are not formed in advance but on site by our ESF instructors. We would invite you to share your wishes with the instructors from the first session.

Please Note: If children do not evolve the same way or if they do not have the same level they will be likely to be put in different groups to ensure progression is achievable.

I made a reservation in advance, do I have to go to the ESF office when I arrive?

It is not necessary to go to our office upon your arrival. The confirmation you receive by email serves as a lesson card. If you have forgotten your confirmation email, do not panic, the instructors have the list of students and will make the call the first session.
