Children's Ski Lessons in Les Gets

We'll give you a quick run down of how ski lessons for children in Les Gets works, before talking about all the ages groups in detail.

The children's lessons run from ages 3 to age 13. Above that they join in with the adult. 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, Lunches and Lessons. You can book whatever combination you like, and they'll arrange all the transitions 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.

We'll go over all the age categories in a little more detail now.

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 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.

For both of the above we find that half days is plenty (in fact for all ages we find that most people think half day lessons is the best).

Prices 2017 Children Aged 3 - 4 yrs

5-6 HALF DAYS € 159.00
5-6 HALF DAYS + LUNCH
(morning lesson + lunch) => 9h - 14h
€ 316.00
5-6 FULL DAYS
(morning lesson + lunch + afternoon childcare) => 9h - 17h
€ 417.00

This is where the ski lessons are now fully focused on skiing! There are many different levels, and the instructors are very good to re-arrange the groups over the first few days of children's ski lessons to group everyone at similar levels. Again we find half day skiing lessons seem to work best for most kids learning to ski.

Prices 2017 Children Aged 5 - 13 yrs

5-6 HALF DAYS € 144.00
5-6 HALF DAYS + LUNCH
(morning lesson + lunch) => 9h - 14h
€ 301.00
5-6 FULL DAYS
(morning lesson + lunch + afternoon childcare) => 9h - 17h
€ 392.00
