    We cannot take last minute reservations by phone or mail, thank you for your understanding.
  • Choose the right meeting point (departure of the lessons) according to the place where you will stay in the resort. One is located at the entrance of Les 2 Alpes (Champamé), another in the centre (Jandri Express) and a third one at the end of the resort (Côte Brune).

However, you can take out the Assur'Glisse insurance at the same time as the lift pass on our website after booking the esf lessons, or on site when you arrive at the lift ticket office (more information : Assur'Glisse).
