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.

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

A beautifully appointed and presented luxury chalet with great views. Paddy & his team (Chris, Becky & Shauna) seamlessly attended to our every need both in the chalet and on the mountain. Thank you for making our week so wonderful. Stuart YB

La Belle Vache was awesome. The house was beautiful and well-appointed, in a great location. The house is comfortable with great space to hang out, cook, and enjoy the mountains. Paddy was also wonderful, and met our every need and request. He was so helpful with making arrangements so that our ski week was seamless and so much fun. We highly recommend this property and Paddy!

We have just spent a fabulous week in Chalet L’Hermitage; absolutely perfect location for families. The level of service was amazing from the start. Paddy arranged everything for us from ski lessons for both adults & children, to ski hire being fitted at the chalet on arrival to booking our lunch on the mountain to make our first day as easy a possible. The team then made our week run seamlessly, catering to our every need. Nothing was too small & everything was delivered with a smile & a laugh......we loved the sociable nature of the service. The food was also fantastic, for both adults & children; really top quality! The chalet was beautiful & clean, with amazing views across the valley & plenty of room for a large group. Thank you so much to Paddy, Chris, Shona, Olivia & Tony for giving us such a wonderful week in the mountains, we really hope to see you again next year!!! X

We had a really fabulous week at Chalet Aurore - thank you! Naomi, Matt and Becky looked after us so well with the best chalet catering that we've ever experienced (we loved the combination of 'comfort food' nights and four course nights). They were very accommodating of the needs of our group, two younger children wanting to eat earlier some nights and one member of the group with some dietary restrictions. They were also personable, professional and good fun! The chalet is beautiful with very comfortable beds and it was a real treat to find the Molton Brown products. Paddy was always on hand to give advice regarding weather/ski areas/alternative activities etc. Having Matt available to drop us at the slopes and pick us up when we needed it work really well too (although we did manage to nearly ski all the way home on a couple of occasions!) I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nine & Tenne.
