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 :-)

Ski school recommendations for Val Thorens

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Off with the family to Val Thorens at Easter hols, with it being the kids second week of skiing. I was going to book them into Evolution 2, as that’s who we went with in Avoriaz for their first lessons and they loved it.

However, according to their website they look booked up already for Easter so am looking for alternatives. Any recommendations? English speaking, small groups (up to 10) and lots of fun ideally!!

Ski cool is just ESF hiding under another name because they're not, err, cool.
Seriously, I picked up a couple of instructors hitching up the hill after a bit of an off piste adventure and when they said they worked for Ski Cool, I said, "Ah yes that's ESF isn't it?"
And they were quite shocked, "How you know this? It's not normal that people know."

I'll give a +1 for ProSneige while we're here - it might even pay to ask if there's a discount for snowHeads snowHead We've no formal arrangement in that respect but we have worked with them a lot over the years and they're positively disposed toward us.

I knew that ski cool were owned by ESF before I booked the lessons.

However it seems to be a different product targeting a different market. They cap the group size at 8 and the clients are usually English speaking so the lessons are geared more towards English

The trip advisor reviews for them vs the standard ESF offering speak for themselves. Prosneige have bigger group sizes than Ski cool - up to 10

I debated with myself for ages between Prosneige and ski cool and the offering seemed identical except the group size. 8 v 10 and IMO 10 is just too many for a small child.

@Stinkpickle, this was my thought about Prosneige as well.

Oxygène also operate in that area and have a max group size of 6. They are more expensive than Prosneige, but with smaller groups you can understand why. So another to consider

The reviews on trip advisor and group sizes have won me over- going for ski cool, I may live to regret it but will report back obviously!

I’d have loved to use Oxygène but sadly I’m just too lazy to take the kids there when Ski cool meets literally in front of where we are staying Very Happy but yes, they seem like a great option too.

That is a good decider, convenience of meet locations is definitely worth considering.
