Unlike other ski schools, esf's experience in the teaching process dates back to 1945 when the first national union of French ski instructors was born in Aix-Les-Bains.

Since then we have dedicated ourselves in the teaching of people from all over the world. As a British or international visitor to Meribel we can ensure that you will recieve the best tuition with the most experienced instructors around.
With the cost of ski holidays rising every year we feel we owe it to our British and international visitors to keep the cost of lessons at an affordable rate.

Sure, you can pay a lot more for other schools to sell you their dream services, however, we understand the power of the pocket, and we want to remain the most cost effective ski school in the Meribel area. Choose esf this winter and keep some euros in your pocket!
When choosing to visit France on a ski holiday the best way to fully enjoy your expeirence is with the traditional methods of our team in esf Meribel.

Tradition is a word that the esf team talk about often as we are fully aware that other ski schools want to reinvent the wheel! We feel there is a traditional way we at esf deal with the teaching process and that is what we want you to enjoy.
Our knowledge of the mountains is something that sets us apart from other ski schools. With an influx of new ski schools, the knowledge of the mountains is something no other school can truly compete with us on.

Generations of esf instructors have graced the slopes of Meribel from dads, grandads and great grandads. From summer farming to winter preperation our knowledge is second to none.
