ESI International Ski Schools is a network of independent ski schools united under one banner. We are all motivated by a desire to teach in a new, more user-friendly way. We believe that teaching is a human adventure: our instructors are people-focussed, patient, professional, and friendly.
This approach has shaped our identity and defines the values that motivate us day after day: independence, the love of a job well done, partnership, and creativity.
When you book with the ESI, you tap into a network of experts who will help you progress by figuring out what's right for you. We create innovative lessons and exercises tailor-made to fit you, adapted to your level and to your goals.
Our ambition: to share our passion for the mountains with you, so that your stay is unforgettable.
EXPERTS: your guarantee for the highest quality instruction
The ESI network has been in existence for 35 years. We now have 95 schools in 3 countries with some 2,000 instructors at your service.
Our instructors are trained and certified by Swiss Snow Sport, SSBS, and Jeunesse & Sport. They also receive additional training each year (off-piste skiing, safety, teaching strategies).
Ski certifications earned through the ESI are internationally recognised and will allow you to move easily from one school to another.
UP CLOSE AND PERSONABLE
We believe that teaching is a human adventure. Our schools are not factories you are not just a number. We limit the size of our groups so you'll get the time and attention you need - and because it's a lot more fun!
ATTENTIVE AND FLEXIBLE
We see ourselves as craftsmen and women - we take your individual needs and wants into account to offer you a tailor-made learning process.
In some resorts, we'll pick up your children at the front door, to save you unnecessary trips back and forth to the mini club.
As soon as they're ready, we take the children to the slopes. Because, after all, they're here to discover the mountains and learn to ski them!
INNOVATIVE is what’s best for you
We create specialised and unique products for you, that's what makes ESI so great!
Our snowboard camps provide a structure where children and teenagers can improve their skills safely, with careful guidance from expert instructors who love what they do. Going above and beyond the basics of technique, safety, and understanding the mountain environment, we also address climate issues and snow science for a truly well-rounded experience.
Ze Club is for all your young snowsports fans! Snowboarders and skiers alike, 6 to 18 years old, can join up for freestyle coaching, freeriding, climate awareness, avalanche safety lessons, group rides, and even meetings with Pro Riders!
We're also great at planning company outings for a little ‘business unusual’! From brainstorming ideas, to suggesting original activities, to reserving accommodation, or even managing the big day so you won't have to - we'll help you plan your seminars, team building sports days, or company dinners in the mountains. At Ze Snow School, we mix business and pleasure for an adventure you'll never forget.
