Because skiing is also about discovering a magical environment, we share with you info and tips on Risoul.

A High Altitude ski station

From its height of 1,850 meters, Risoul is one of the highest resort in the Hautes-Alpes. It is the best place to learn to ski in good snow conditions, close to the big cities of the South.

With 83% of the slopes above 2,000 meters, snow is falling in abundance and guarantees good skiing during peak periods.

This is why Ski Family, the new ESI (International Ski School), has chosen this location to establish its first school in the Southern Alps.

A ski school for all levels and prices

Ski Family offers you all the services of a large traditional ski school in Risoul.

Our group lessons for children allow you to learn while limiting your budget, but without compromising on the quality of the teaching. Indeed, group lessons are limited to 8 students and start from 4 people. Of course, we also organize group lessons for adults who wish to discover skiing and progress in a friendly atmosphere.

If you prefer a custom-made ski lesson, our instructors are also available for private lessons. Our particularity: if you wish to benefit from a private lesson with several people, the price of the lesson will remain the same. But the maximum of people is up to five during the same lesson.

Looking for thrills? We also offer off-piste sessions with ski instructors who are passionate about it.

J'ai repris confiance sur les ski

Cela faisait plus de 15 ans que je n'avais pas skié, je suis allée à Val Thorens avec mon mari qui est un amoureux de la montagne mais j'appréhendais car j'avais peur de me remettre sur les ski ! J'ai décidé de prendre des cours pour être plus à l'aise et pouvoir profiter avec lui. J'ai pu réserver mes cours très facilement sur le site internet de Les Batons. J'ai reçu toutes les informations sur Kelly, ma monitrice, en amont du cours. Les cours se sont très bien passés, Kelly a été très pédagogue, elle a bien ciblé les exercices pour m'apprendre bien évidemment la technique mais surtout pour me faire reprendre confiance et ainsi m'enlever cette peur que j'avais à chaque fois avant de descendre une piste ! J'ai reçu les photos de mon cours, que j'ai pu montrer à mon mari et une liste d'exercices que Kelly m'avaient fait faire pour que je puisse continuer à les travailler quand j'allais sur les pistes avec lui ! Le plus : les recommandations de Kelly sur les choses à faire dans la station :) top nouvelle école, bonne chance à vous !
