10 best practice rules

Before booking any lesson, please read our general conditions of sales.
For the ski school to properly function, please take into account these ten rules.

Rule #1:
Arrive in advance at the ski lesson meeting points.

Rule #2: 
You must have for each lesson: 
  • your lesson card 
  • your lift pass
  • your equipment (helmet, ski, and ski boots)

Rule #3:
Protect yourself against cold and sunrays, wear warm clothes, gloves, glasses and bring some sunscreen.

Rule #4:
For each lesson, it is highly recommended to wear an helmet.

Rule #5:
Don’t forget to give your child a little snack.

The programmes and opening hours are can be changed during the season by the ESF director.

Rule #7:
Instructors can’t be blamed for bad weather and ski lift breakdowns.

Rule #8:
In case of events that are beyond our control, a ski lesson can be shortened and won’t be refunded.

Rule #9:
The pupils are not insured by the ESF. We advise you to subscribe to an insurance to avoid troubles and over spending in case of incident.

Rule #10:
Regarding the Club Piou Piou :
  • you can watch your children but keep in mind that children do not behave the same way when they see their parents. Be discreet. 
  • consider your children level and do not take them on difficult ski slopes that could scare them. 
  • keep on smiling and encouraging your child!

Tests (stars): 
Tests take place on Fridays during the group lessons. The pupils will get their diploma and medals.

Private lessons:
For private lessons, instructors must wait for their clients at least 20 minutes. After that, the lesson is considered as given.

Group lessons: 
At least 2 to 4 people need to attend the course for it to happen. The lesson will only last one hour during French school holidays. All courses not cancelled must be paid in full. Accidents, sickness or cancellation do not result in a refund of any kind, see our general conditions of sales for more information.

The ESF reserves the right to change the dates and times of your lessons. In case of bad weather, lessons will not be refunded or delayed. Please arrive at least 10 minutes in advance before the beginning of your lessons (for group lessons) and 5 minutes in advance for a private lesson.

Do not forget to rent your equipment in the village as there are no rentals at the ski station.
