Yes, private lessons can accommodate up to 5 students but it is important to note that children must be at the same level to make the lesson more effective.

What insurance do i need to take for winter sports ?

The ESF does not insure its students, we recommend that you opt for Assur'Glisse insurance which is a specific insurance that covers you in the event of an accident.
You can purchase Assur'Glisse insurance at the same time as your lessons on our website.
You can find more information on our site in the Assur'Glisse Insurance section or on
Otherwise ask your personal insurance and your bank, sometimes your bank or credit card covers you.

I do not understand the messages when I am trying to book?

The courses are complete :
It means that you have exceeded the deadline to make your reservation (online sales stop at 7 days prior, you will need to book your courses directly at the ESF reception upon your arrival), or you could have chosen the wrong category in relation to the student's date of birth.
The age of the student does not correspond to the chosen course :
We calculate the number of months between the date of birth and the date of the course to check if the courses correspond to the age of your child. For Piou Piou, the child must be between 36 and 47 months old and for Ourson the child must be at least 4 years old.
No courses sold match the age of the student :
Try entering Saturday at the beginning of your stay to verify that there are no other possibilities.
There are no courses available for this start date but there may be other possibilities for other days of the week:
