Welcome to the French Ski School of Avoriaz 1800 website, a school dedicated to the pleasure of learning how to glide. Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, telemark skiing, cross-country skiing, ski touring … our 180 ski instructors invite you to share the pleasures of skiing in one of the most beautiful ski areas of the world at the heart of the ski area « Les Portes du Soleil ».

The Red Sweatshirts at your service

Historically, our instructors from ESF teach skiers the most efficient gliding techniques. Beyond ski lessons, they will make you enjoy their culture and their knowledge of the local mountain environment. To ensure your training is always more effective, our instructors continually adapt their know-how and their services to new trends to offer quality learning in full safety. You will also enjoy a priority crossing dedicated ski school at each lift to maximize your time on the slopes.

Gliding for all

From the first steps towards competition levels, our ESF offers many lessons for all types of skiing knowledge. While the youngest will discover the joy of skiing in our Kindergarten in the “Piou Piou Club”, the others will learn from our various group or individual lessons, workshops … or through the full commitment of one instructor for one or more days :  the whole family will enjoy skiing and have fun!

Fun skiing

Freeski / Off-track skiing, heli-skiing, freestyle, competition or simple ride. Performance, flexibility, relaxation … there are courses for everyone at the ESF of Avoriaz 1800! Do not hesitate to contact us for more information. Both our offices are open throughout the whole season from 8.30am to 6pm. Click here for more information.
