Ski Lessons

You’ll be surprised by the range of lesson options available. Vaujany is blessed with its very own branch of the ESF – l’Ecole du Ski Français (French Ski School) teaching all levels and ages out of Vaujany for more than 25 years. There is a drop-off and pick-up on the slopes facility for parents with lessons for all levels in the fantastic Montfrais (the domain is a green and blue piste paradise, perfect for learning, perfect landscape and perfectly uncrowded)

Prefer independent instructors? Whether skiing or snowboard instructors, we can recommend a good selection to choose from.

Off Piste

This is something totally different. As yet, very few skiers have discovered the gem that is Vaujany’s amazing back country terrain. Those of us that have experienced it know it is something special.

'Backcountry playground Yeh!'

Vaujany is very close to La Grave – Europe and perhaps the world’s most famous off-piste ski area. Yet often we meet La Grave guides skiing in Vaujany. Why? Because off-piste conditions are often better than on the notoriously fickle La Grave slopes.
