Ski Schools in Val d’Isère

Learn to ski in Val d’Isère

Situated in Tarentaise valley in the Savoie and part of the Vanoise national park, Val d’Isère can be reached within 1hr 45min drive from Chambery and 2hrs 40mins from Geneva. For those travelling by train, the nearest Eurostar station is only 34km away, in Bourg - St.Maurice, the bus transfer from the station to the resort taking approx. 40 mins.

Together with Tignes, Val d’Isère forms the wide-ranging skiing region of Espace Killy, which encompasses the two glaciers of Pissaillas and the Grande Motte. The resort is named after the legendary ski racer Jean-Claude Killy and offers a total of 300km of pistes, including 22 green and 61 blue runs. Ski schools in Val d’Isère make the most of the extensive range of runs, offering ski courses for all standards including freestyling.

Val d’Isère itself has two distinct areas, Bellevarde and Solaise, which are linked by lifts but also by an excellent and free bus service that runs every few minutes. Both areas have excellent gentle runs, which are used by ski schools in Val d’Isère for their beginners’ lessons.

Ski lessons for beginners in Val d’Isère

In Val d’Isère, 56% of the pistes are easy slopes, making the resort ideal for beginners. Ski schools in Val d’Isère teach their ski novices the first techniques on one of the two nursery ski areas within the resort; one in the centre of the village with three free ski lifts that give access to two green pistes, and the slightly smaller nursery area in La Daille.

Unusually, some blue & green runs in Val d’Isère are also found high up in the mountains: After a complete regrading and the addition of three covered moving carpets in 2017, the Solaise sector now has some of the best beginner-friendly slopes in France. With gently, rolling pistes and 4 free chairlifts, these runs are perfect for ski beginners who want to practice their newly-learned skills.

The Bellevarde, above the La Daille nursery area, is another favourite practice area for ski schools in Val d’Isère. The area offers wide, gentle greens that have slight gradients in parts, where beginners can pick up a little speed.

Kids’ ski lessons in Val d’Isère

Ski schools in Val d’Isère offer children’s ski lessons from age 3yrs. Group lessons for beginners aged 3-4yrs have a maximum of 3 children and last for 1,5hrs. For beginners aged 4yrs and above, lessons last for 3hrs and groups have a maximum of 8 children.

Some ski schools in Val d’Isère have their own “Children’s Garden” snow areas for their youngest learners, the meeting point being directly at the school garden, usually 10mins before lessons begin. Older children are taken to either of the two nursery areas within the resort and all beginners start off by learning the very first moves of gliding and snowplough.

Beginners who are steady on their skis are taken to practice on some of the 12 green runs further up the mountain. Advanced beginners with a sense of adventure head out to try any of the 24 blue runs within the resort, such as the blues on the Col de l’Iséran and on the peak of the Rocher de Bellevarde, both of which are favourites of the ski schools in Val d’Isère.
