Ski School

For those children wanting to take to the slopes, Samoëns offers one of the largest areas of beginners’ slopes in Haute-Savoie.

At the top of the Grand Massif Express at 1600 meters there is a large plateau with a ski kindergarten offering organised lessons for children of between three and six years old. The kindergarten zone provides a dedicated safe area with graded slopes where children are able to experience all the excitement of the slopes but without the danger.

The ESF ski school offers facilities for three to six year olds to learn to ski in the kindergarten. You can also take advantage of their ‘Famille Plue Montagne’ package where they escort your children to their ski classes. The service includes ski lessons, nursery, lunch and escorting the child to and from the various activities.

Independent operators Zigzag International offer a choice of private tuition or group classes for children with small classes to ensure personal contact with each child.
