Over the easter holiday, we flew to Val Thorens and I had 4 private lessons booked with skicool as a beginner snowboarder, I didn't have any experience with it before, apart from surfing (which let's say it's kind of similar but not really) and I was a bit skeptical about it.

My assigned instructor was Denis, and I must emphasize that he was an AMAZING one. Very patient and with really good knowledge. First 2 days were a bit slow and he walked me through all the basics that I would need to be able to have some fun on the slopes and not kill myself. The last 2 days, on the other hand, were amazing, Denis took the time to help me perfect a couple of techniques and we went down LONG blue runs and we even tried some easy reds.

It was one of the best holidays I ever had, and Denis played a very important part on it. Definitely gonna ask for him again next year to get some more good lessons and progress more. Thanks a lot guys! o/

Looking forward to meeting you again next season.

Ski cool provided an excellent week of lessons for our children. We were quite a big group, all with different needs and an age range from 5-15 years. All 3 instructors provided a fun week for all the children and they made lots of progress. All the children came away with a big smile every day and the instructors were always friendly and personable. Thank you Ski Cool for such a super week! We would highly recommend this ski school!

We had private lessons in the beginning of our vacation. We took ski and snowboard lessons, since some of us are skiing and others snowboarding. The office services were polite and efficient.
The teachers were professional, nice and polite. Thanks Mathieu and Hugo.

I had the best week snowboarding thanks to my instructor Arthur, he was more than helpful and was very patient with me after I hurt myself on my 4th lesson. I had a 3 hour lesson every morning and I'm so glad that I did, we tried a variety of Blue runs and Arthur would snowboard directly along side to help on anything you were struggling on. His English was also perfect, there was no language barrier at all, I was very happy and I would definitely return again :)
