Booking Adult Group Lessons

Children’s ski lessons are included in our childcare clubs (for children under 14 years old at the time of the holiday). Guests wishing to book adult group ski lessons (as distinct from private lessons, see below) can reserve them before arrival in resort by contacting us by e-mail or call 01684 540 333. Please let us know if you require beginner, intermediate or expert lessons. Five morning lessons in Ardent or Reberty cost £209 per person.

Please be aware that in resort, if there are less than five participants in the adult group lesson, the ski school reserve the right to change the service for example from a morning group lesson each day, to a private lesson of two hours for one or two participants over two days.  This latter product is more expensive than adult group lessons.   Given the close attention of the instructor this is also considered more valuable in terms of learning to ski or improving your skiing.  This change will be at the sole discretion of the ESF according to their terms and conditions.

Please note that in Ardent Adult Group Ski Lessons are not available during the Low Season and the First and Last Week of the Season (16th December 2023 and 7th April 2024).
