“Two great weeks”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

In thirty years of skiing we enjoyed some of the best instruction ever from Raphael. His expertise was highlighted in the excellent management of a mixed level 4 group. We did a wide range of exercises but in context of a lot of fun and varied skiing. His perceptive, personal and immediate feedback inspired the group and we were still able to take advantage of the excellent conditions.
The second 5 day Steep and Deep classes, although aimed at above our level (there is no Introduction to off piste) again showed Oxygene's adaptability and we enjoyed some classic itineraries in a safe and confidence building environment with Raphael. The Oxygene experience from the booking, the office staff, the boss and ski technicians was friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommended!

“Badly let down by Oxygen”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Despite having booked and confirmed child ski lessons weeks before going skiing we got a phone call from Oxygen at 17.10 the evening before the lessons were due to start saying that they were cancelling them as they didn't have enough people booked in to justify the cost of running the lessons. This obviously left us with the problem of sorting out alternative lessons the night before we started skiing, luckily Evolution 2 were fantastic and stepped up to the mark with a fantastic instructor. Oxygen were very unprofessional and obviously were not concerned at all about fulfilling their obligations or providing any form of customer service. I would strongly advise against using Oxygen as later in the week we found out that Oxygen had done the exact same thing to another family two years ago.

“Steffan is excellent”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

We had a fantastic lesson with Steffan and would have liked to have more later in the week but he was fully booked. We now know why!

“Belle Plagne Ski School”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Our 9 year old son had 6 full day lessons at Belle Plagne with Oxygene. The pick up point was right outside our apartment, next to their office - super convenient. The morning class had about 9 children in and 2 instructors and the afternoon lessons had 4 boys with 1 instructor. The instructors were professional and friendly and had fun with the kids - snowball fights at the end of the day were great fun. Our son - a complete beginner - progressed very quickly and achieved a gold level (a level above expected) in 27 hours of skiing. He was capable of going out with us on blue runs by half way through the week and was confident on chairlifts and gondolas. I cannot recommend the Oxygene team at Belle Plagne enough.

“Snowboard lessons in Val D'Isere”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

My two boys had snowboard lessons - one intermediate, the other beginner. Both instructors, Raphael and Steffano, were excellent with the boys, and helped them progress a great deal. The boys really enjoyed their lessons and the instructors were great with feedback - even videoing them for us. Thank you very much.
