Ski Lessons

Chalet Le Sabot will be happy to arrange all your ski lessons for you.

To get the most out of your ski or snowboard lessons it is important to find the right instructor for your ability level. Chalet Le Sabot will organise the best instructor for you or your children, we will make sure that your instructor can speak your language and our hosts will escort you and/or your children to meet with your instructor on your first day.

The ski school has an arrangement with the creche so that the young kids (3-6 years) can have a ski lesson in the morning and play in the creche in the afternoon. This is all arranged between the ski school and the creche and there is no need for mum or dad to be involved. This is a fantastic facility and works perfectly.
