Good instruction. Particularly helpful using video. Although the team take the job seriously they make sure you get the most out of your holiday and realise you are there to enjoy yourselves. Helpful insights to make the most out of your days. Thanks

We all enjoyed our lessons with the ESS instructors. Our family abilities ranged from beginner to very competent and all the instructors spoke Good English, were patient and enthusiastic. Would thoroughly recommend this ski school.

Always good lessons, excellent English, clean and enthusiastic instructors. Children get better each time and so do us older ones who haven’t skied many times before. Plenty of slopes to develop necessary skills and made to feel both safe and challenged at the same time....More

Instructors are well experinced and speak good English ( or Italian, French, German or Spanish and probably others as required at that moment). Easy to understand entry criteria and a prompt promotion/demotion if you don't fit. Would definitely use them again.

Recommend giving ESI a phone all and discussing your needs. As far as I know there is all year round skiing on the glacier and the lifts take you all the way to the top. There is also great hill and mountain walking. Enjoy... More
