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.  The groups meet in the morning at the Vaujany lift station and are then taken up, up and away into the snowy mountains for their lesson.  There is a drop-off and pick-up, on the slopes facility, for both morning and afternoon lessons. 

From the green and blue piste paradise of Montfrais, perfect for learning, perfect landscape and perfectly uncrowded!  To beyond, into the main Alpe d'Huez resort where the choice is unrivalled.

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

For the experienced off-piste skier we can arrange days out with highly recommended mountain guides - see the 'off piste' page for more details


Since 1989 Vaujany’s small school of about 20 instructors has established a firm reputation for quality teaching and satisfied clients. Apart from an excellent kids’ school, on offer are individual or group lessons on skis or snowboard from beginner to advanced. All instructors speak good English.

Please see our 'Family Ski Holidays' page for more information on ski kindergarten and ski lessons.

All lessons must be booked direct with Vaujany ESF.
