The easiest and most convenient way to book your ski lessons at Val Thorens is online with us at Erna Low.

You can select the ski lessons for yourself and your family or friends depending on the ski ability level. There are different class levels available at Val Thorens such as Novice ski lessons for first-time skiers, very young children, or cautious beginners who have some minor experience. There are also advanced ski lessons aimed at confident intermediates and advanced skiers looking to improve their confidence on the slopes. There are also group ski lessons, mostly favoured by parents with young kids as they can progress with their peers and form support systems with other children they meet in their group. There are also private ski lessons done on a one to one basis. These are usually very effective among adults and children alike due to the time and focus given to the learner by the ski instructor. Interestingly, private lessons may work out cheaper on some occasions as the student may learn a lot quicker and may, in turn, require fewer classes.
