Ski lessons

Whether you’re a beginner or expert, ski lessons are a great investment and help you enjoy your holiday to the maximum. There are several reputable ski schools in Samoëns, offering ski and snowboard instruction at all levels in both English and French:

  • ZigZag International Ski School. This smaller, private school is a firm favourite, and offers high-quality tuition tailored to suit your level. All the instructors speak good English, and are enthusiastic and friendly. Book early to ensure a place.
  • 360 International. Another boutique school, with English-speaking instructors and good tuition.
  • Ecole du Ski Français. For the traditionalists, ESF is the largest and most well-established ski school in France. It offers individual and group lessons (English is not guaranteed), though our guests have found that quality can be variable.

For more information and prices, please visit each school’s website. We’ll be happy to make a reservation for you, or you can contact them direct – but do mention that you’re a guest of Ferme du Ciel.
