Group ski lessons for children - the choice of small groups

The certified ESI Val Thorens ski instructors help people to progress in small groups of the same level throughout the week. Our lessons are composed of 4 to 8 people from beginner level (Cristal International) to advanced level (Cristal de Diamant).

As well as being the cheapest way to learn to ski, this format allows your children to progress in an open and playful atmosphere.

We strive to ensure the best match between the level of each lesson and people's expectations. This is why, at the start of each session, our instructors observe people's needs and reorganize the group to ensure the best consistency.

Group lesson process in Val Thorens

With the ESI Ski Family in Val Thorens, group lessons are simple, clear and fun. Here is how a lesson unfolds :

Before the lesson :  

One week before the lesson, we will give you access to the Ski Family app, to have access to all of the lesson and ski instructor information.

On the first day, meet at the foot of the Castor et Pollux carpet, located in front of the Val Thorens tourist office, at the agreed time and date. Your ski instructor will be waiting for you there!

Make sure your child is equipped with his ski pass, sunscreen and ski equipment. Don't forget the helmet, which is compulsory for people up to 13 years old!

Ski Family advantage : you will find all this information, and much more, in the app.


During the lesson :

For more efficiency, the session takes place in small groups of 4 to 8 people.

On the first day, the ski instructor will take a picture of each skier in his best outfit and take advantage of the first turns to confirm the level of the whole group.

If necessary, ski instructors will reorganize the groups for an optimal distribution by level and age.

Let's go for the first lesson now that the introduction is done...

Every day (and not only the first day), the ski instructor will take pictures of your exploits! It would still be a shame not to remember your stay in the highest resort in Europe, right?

After lesson :

At the end of each lesson, find the highlights of your child's day in the app. You could view personalized comments from your ski instructor, find all the photos taken during the lesson and view your progress through your achievement badges.

On the last day, people will receive their medal and a full summary of their stay in the app's souvenir tab !
