Ski Lessons in Les Gets

Ski Lessons in Les Gets Snowboard & Ski Lessons in Les Gets

We can arrange ski lessons for all levels and group sizes in Les Gets. We have partnered up with ESF which is the largest and most well known ski school in Les Gets. They provide both group lessons and private ski lessons for all ages. There are other ski schools which we can arrange lessons with too so if you have a preference please just let us know.

The normal arrangement for group lessons is 5 or 6 half day lessons (they are starting on either Sunday or Monday and run till Friday). The timing of these changes depending on the time of year.

For all beginners we can arrange the special beginner's lift pass deal (lift pass + lessons) when you book a beginners lesson with ESF at the same time as your lift pass. We've also a special beginner's section to help you with your selections. Please see our Beginner Guide to Skiing

Groups Ski Lessons (adults)

ESF group lessons are for adults and teenagers aged 14 years and above. There are also some teenage specific group lessons for 13- to 19-year-olds. For either group type, lessons are for 5 or 6 half days.

Group Size

In group ski and snowboard lessons, your instructor will be teaching up to 8 people together as a group. So, unless you are a group of 8, you will be sharing with others of similar ability to yourself. This set-up works well for most skiers and boarders. However, if shared group lessons aren't for you, then you may wish to consider private lessons.


Adult group ski lessons are €163.00 per person for 5 or 6 half days of instruction. It is the same price for the whole season. This is the option most people choose.

Group Snowboarding Lessons (adults)

ESF group snowboarding lessons are for adults and teenagers aged 13 years and above. Lessons are for 5 or 6 half days. The timing and length of the lessons varies throughout the winter.

In group snowboard lessons, your instructor will be teaching up to 8 people together as a group. You will typically be sharing with others of similar ability to yourself. This set-up works well for most boarders. However, if shared group lessons aren't for you, then you may wish to consider private lessons.

Children & Teenagers

Children's lessons run from ages 3 to age 12. Above that, teenage or adult group lessons are available. We generally use ESF for our children's ski lessons, though there are other ski schools in Les Gets as well should you have an alternative preference. We find with children (and adults too for that matter) that half day lessons for 5 days of your stay seems to be the most popular option.

The great benefit with ESF is they also offer a childcare system that fits in with their lessons. There's 3 main segments - Kids Club (childcare), Lunches and Lessons. You can book whatever combination you like, and they'll arrange all the transitions in between. For example you could book morning lessons, lunch, then afternoon kids club. You would drop your child off at the lessons in the morning, then pick them up from the kids club at the end of the day, and they would sort out everything in between.

We would always recommend booking ahead, especially for the school holiday periods where things can book up quickly.

  • Children - 3-4yrs - Skiing (ESF)

    Age 3 is very much a borderline age - you can pick between childcare or ski lessons. If you decide on the ski lessons route then ESF (our recommended ski school) offer their Piou Piou (Little Bird) class. This is a mixture of learning to ski and games, both indoor and outdoor. The ski lesson part is more about the children getting used to the experience of skiing, the boots, the skis, walking with the skis on and alike. There's limited amounts of skiing for these young ones.

    Age 4 Children join the "Ourson" (Bear Cub) class. This is more biased towards the skiing end, though there's still an element of games and the emphasis still lies on introducing the whole idea of skiing to the children. This is in a special area well designed for little ones and well away from other skiers.

  • Children - 5-12yrs - Skiing (ESF)

    Children aged 5 to 12 – These group classes are determined by the child's skiing experience. For their first time skiing, the beginner class is recommended. If your little skier has already passed the “Piou Piou” or “Ourson” levels then they can move straight through to the “Flocon” or “1st star” levels.

    If you feel your child is more at an intermediate level there are a couple different classes to choose from, we recommend going to the ESF website directly to gauge which level suits your child best. The instructors are very good to re-arrange the groups over the first few days of children's ski lessons, grouping everyone at similar levels. Half-day skiing lessons seem to work best for most kids learning to ski.

  • Teenagers - 13-17yrs - Skiing (ESF)

    Teenage group ski and snowboard lessons are available for ages 13-17 yrs. The teenager lessons have the same prices and timetables as the adult lessons. These group lessons offer teenagers the freedom of movement while allowing them to discover and learn. The groups are kept to a maximum of 8 participants to ensure focus on ability and progression. If the minimum number of students required for the lesson is not reached then the teen could be grouped with an adult lesson.
