Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 40,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...
Or Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

French ski instructors' union responds to snowHeads poll


French ski instructors' union responds to snowHeads poll

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
The Chairman of the French ski instructors' union has responded to a snowHeads poll which shows preference for a choice in ski schools. Defending the practices of the French national ski school ESF and its qualification process, Giles Chabert argues the case for the four-year qualification, justifying the restrictions placed on independent ski schools and employment of trainee instructors...

M. Chabert stresses the need for comprehensive training - "adults or children, beginner or competition standard" - for every instructor.

The debate continues, with independent ski schools slowly emerging to challenge the ESF. You can read M. Chabert's letter to snowHeads here, and PG's poll and discussion of ski schools in France here.

Please vote and join the debate if you have views on what you'd like to see from ski schools in France.
