Les Gets Ski School Recommendations

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi Snowheads

After a very helpful topic pointing my towards Les Gets I'm now on the hunt for a good instructor. We are going to be going over the new year (her birthday is the 31st Dec) so would be looking at 2x 2hr private lessons on the 1st and 2nd Jan then a free ski on the 3rd and 4th.

Assuming there is availability I have the following options that I can see:
BASS (~£95ph)
PDS Academy (~£75ph)
LGS (~80ph)

Have any of you had experience with any of these? She is a complete beginner, ill try and get her onto a dry slope to get the very basics but as long as she can at least have a bash at a blue slope thatll be good. They all look good and reviews all seem ok.

Thanks
Dave

Al those are good options, also have a look at The Snow Institute. Sally or Ali would both be great if you wanted a sympathetic female instructor.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Ali at snow institute is really good as are all the guys at pds academy. Some of the schools only run limited private lessons over new year though at awkward times as there is such a demand for group lessons so worth organising this early as options may be limited for private lessons

I always recommend ESi to guests. Very entertaining bunch of guys and girls, and great value at 45 EUR per hour for private lessons in low season. They run 10 week courses every season for the kids in local schools for just 100 eur (25 hours of lessons).

As mentioned above by @langball, this lot at 360 are very good. We now book them for grandchildren and they have good fun. We have also used BASS and LGS, no complaints there either. 360 are a bit more reasonably priced.

Cheers for the heads up, better put our prices up hehe!

Most of the difference between to top and bottom of the market is the ability to employ partially qualified instructors. All the GB schools have to employ fully qual'd instructors so price is always higher.
