Ski lessons in Chatel

Whether you are learning to ski for the first time or you are an experienced skier with many mogul fields under your belt it is always useful to have a few pointers from a pro.

Here is a list of the best ski schools in Chatel.

British Alpine Ski School

BASS is the British ski school based in Chatel.  They are our preferred choice for group lessons as they have small group sizes and very good British instructors.

Using the BASI coaching system, their teaching style is excellent for all abilities and age groups.

The lessons are two hours long starting and finishing in Pre La Joux, and the cost is £200 for 5 mornings.

Ecole de ski Francais

ESF is the largest ski school in Chatel, with an office in the high street next to the pharmacy.

This is the French ski school and they can cater for all abilities in both skiing and snowboarding.  Most instructors speak English and are a good standard however we find the lessons are predominately in French and they have large group sizes.

On the plus side they are the only ski school to offer group lessons from Super Chatel.

Prices start from €145 for 5 mornings.

Ecole de ski International

The International ski school is also based at Pre La Joux.  They have a maximum of 10 pupils per class and a good selection of English speaking instructors.

Prices start from €160

To get the most from your time on the slopes we highly recommend private ski lessons, as one to one tuition is the best way to perfect your turns and technique.  Lessons are usually two hours long and cost €65 an hour plus €5 per additional person.

Blue Chilli

Is a small independent ski school specialising in private lessons.  Their instructors are arguably the best in the area, and have the ability to transform your skiing in a two hour window.  So, whether you are looking to improve your powder turns or snowplough these are the guys to call.

Freelance Instructors

There are several freelance ski instructors who have been based in the area for many years and offer excellent private instruction.  Your chalet operator will probably have their contact details.

At Nine and Tenne we provide a concierge service to help organise all the key elements of your holiday.  If you are staying with us on a catered or self-catered ski holiday we will be able to book all your ski lesson requirements.  Please feel free to contact us if you need any advice on which ski schools to use in Chatel.

Absolutely fantastic week. The chalet was gorgeous, spacious and lovely bedrooms. Paddy was a great host. The skis were delivered to the chalet which saved so much hassle as were the ski passes. Paddy booked our restaurants before we arrived. Cannot recommend more highly!! We will come back.

We enjoyed a fantastic week at Nine & Tenne's Chalet Savoyard. The chalet was extremely well appointed and housed all 12 of us across 3 generations very comfortably. Paddy could not have been more accommodating and helpful (including installing a fully decorated Christmas tree!) and we can highly recommend the meal delivery service that Paddy organised for us. The chalet is in a great location, a 10 minute walk into the centre of the village and a short drive from all the skiing locations. Many thanks to Paddy and the owner for a great week.

Having had the most amazing Christmas week with Nine and Tenne at their chalet - Grand Coeur, it’s a shame we can only give it five stars! Paddy and the chalet team of Tess, James and Jake we’re so accommodating of all our needs especially with our toddler and made our stay so comfortable and unforgettable. A highlight was the restaurant quality food and service each night. The organisation was flawless from the moment we booked and we would highly recommend Nine and Tenne. We will certainly be returning! Thank you for everything guys (even the ski tours!)

From initial communication with Paddy to the end of our holiday everything with Nine & Tenne was of the highest standard. Les Clarines is as beautiful as it appears in the photos, was very clean and was a very special place to celebrate a family Christmas. The Chalet is in a perfect location with stunning views of the village and mountains and very close to Petit Chatel bus stop. We are a family of 5 adults and enjoyed the hot tub and space within the Chalet, there are a number of bathrooms, an open plan layout and a kitchen where we could easily prepare our Christmas Dinner. Thanks to everyone at Nine and Tenne.

One of the loveliest chalets we have stayed in, large rooms, private swimming pool. We had food delivered to the chalet so we could eat when we like, shopping was done for us when we arrived. Skis brought to the chalet. Paddy, who owns and runs the chalet, is lovely, friendly,always there to answer questions and run us any where on request, the perfect host. Fabulous holiday with views to die for. X
