French ski school located in Prat Mataou, from the piou-piou club to private lessons. The ESF team will be able to share their passion for skiing with you throughout the season.

The French ski school offers group lessons and private lessons.

From 3 to 5 years old for the child who is just starting out, skiing is taught in the form of a game. The kindergarten is equipped with a reception chalet, a conveyor belt with tunnel and a baby ski lift. The snack is offered! Then both children and adults can take group lessons, the ideal being to take them on a weekly basis so that your group progresses together and gets to know each other! There are also group snowboard lessons from 10 years old. The pedagogical approach is individualized, each student evolves at his own pace.
You can also, if you prefer, take private lessons by the hour, half-day or full day.
Finally, the ESF also offers snowshoe hikes, ski touring, multi-slide courses or the Handiski activity for people with disabilities, as well as for anyone wishing to discover the ski area: evolution on the all of the resort's tracks.

Physical disability

Uni-ski and bi-ski: These machines allow a practice which can go until the complete autonomy. Their use is linked to that of scooters commonly called stabilos. The skier will be able to use all the ski lifts (accessible* and/or authorized**) of a ski area. *Rule of the means of substitution (Domaine Skiable de France) **Some ski lifts are prohibited (ex: slope too steep). Kart ski: The kart ski is a machine allowing a practice in autonomy or semi-autonomy. The lateral balance is greatly facilitated by the kinetics of the machine and a very low positioning of the center of gravity. However, travel and access to the ski lifts are not independent.
