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 D’Isère ski school prices versus Italy

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi everyone,

I am in Val over Christmas and have just been looking at ski school prices which seem very expensive compared to my previous experiences in Italy. After having spent 5 days in Val Thorens last year I thought I had gotten used to French prices but perhaps I have been naive.
That said if anyone has recommendations to suit my girlfriend who is intermediate but not confident then let me know as I it will make her happy if I sort it out.

Thanks.

There's a big range of ski schools in Val d'Isere with a big range of prices. Which have you been looking at? And of course the continued weakness of the pound against the euro doesn't help.

Val d'Isere is certainly pretty expensive but I wouldn't have thought it was much different to Val Thorens, like for like. How much did you pay in Italy? Italy is generally cheaper for food and drink, for sure.

France generally more exp all round due to general taxation 35% Corp tax I believe.... Italy significantly
cheaper

Val d also larger French ski resort will add a layer of cash compared to smaller French resorts

I've had lessons with him on pre season bash (so can't comment on TDC prices) and he's very good.
