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. 50,000+ 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 :-)

Val Thorens tuition - any info?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I'm going to Val Thorens at Easter with a mixed ability group, some of whom will need tuition at beginner/intermediate level, ski and board, adult and kids.

Anyone got any feedback on any of the ski schools there? Ideally, I'd like to find something similar to Courchevel's Supreme Ski.

The SCGB lists four schools: ESI http://www.esivalthorens.com/, ESF http://www.esf-valthorens.com/, Ski Cool http://www.ski-cool.com/ and Pros-Neige http://www.prosneige.fr/. Anyone know anything about these or about any others?

If you've used Supreme Ski, drop them an email or phone them and ask for a recommendation. That's what I did with a very good school I'd used in Val D when I was looking for a Courchevel ski school. Especially since you're talking VT - it's not exactly a million miles away, so they schools will probably all know each other.

No luck with Supreme: "Im not realy sure of anyone operating in VT to be honest. Courchevel or Meribel, I could recommend many as you know."

We'll have to guess on the basis of the website - will report back our experiences when we get back.

I went to VT as an absolute beginner in January, and took 6 hours group lessons with ESF. It was a bit of a mixed experience for me - the first day, the instructor was a bit crap and none of us really got much from the lesson. For the second and third days, we were switched to a slightly smaller group (there were 7 of us, i think) with a different instructor, who was great - very personal and offered useful advice.

It definitely seemed as if ESF were the biggest school in the area (there were instructors in red suits everywhere), and most of the instructors seemed friendly and competant enough. It was enough to get me hooked, anyway!
