Advice to parents

Everything you need to know before going to the lessons

For all bookings, please read our general conditions of sale.

For the smooth running of the esf and for a successful stay, we also ask you to comply with the following rules:

The smooth running of a course depends on the instructor... but also on you:

  • Arrive in advance at the meeting points indicated on your booking (MyESF app.)
  • Ski lift passes are not included in the lessons' prices and are compulsory for group and private lessons (children under 5 years old do not need to pay for the ski lift pass but a card is still required in order to access the lifts).
  • Students are responsible for their own safety.

Please equip your child according to their needs:

  • The equipment is not provided in our services.
  • Children must come to lessons equipped (skis and boots, helmet).
  • Ski poles from 1ère étoile onward.
  • Wearing a ski helmet is strongly recommended for all levels.

Important information:

  • The programmes and timetables may be modified during the season by the esf management team.
  • Weather conditions and lift breakdowns are not the instructors' responsiblity.
  • The actual course time may be reduced for reasons beyond our control. No refunds will be made.

For Club Piou Piou:

  • Please dress your child to protect them from the cold, but don't forget about the heat of the warm and sunny days.
  • Gloves, sunglasses, sunscreen and ski helmet from an early age to develop good habits!
  • You can observe your child, but be discreet, children behave differently when they see their parents.
  • You can give your child a snack. Please Please let us know if they have any allergies, as we also give them a snack.
  • Respectez le rythme de progression, à savoir que si votre enfant commence à faire des virages chasse-neige et que vous l'emmenez pour lui faire plaisir sur des pistes plus difficiles, vous pouvez gêner sa progression et même le mettre en difficulté.
  • Respect the pace of progress, i.e. if your child starts to make snowplough turns and you take them to more difficult slopes for fun, you can hinder their progress and undermine their skills.
  • Always stay positive and value their progress.
