My 15 year old daughter & 13 year son did the all day Teenagers course at Plagne Centre. It was brilliant! Why does this course not exist at all ESF resorts. It has been set up by Vincent & his colleague & they were amazing. The kids are now sadly better & faster skiers than me & to set off with 4 other teenagers - 2 French, 2 Belgian/Irish was amazing, very multicultural and very fun. They skied all the slopes, were challenged, did the snowpacks, were taught tricks (very important for a 13 year old boy), skied across water and on an inflatable ringo which went over a jump onto a huge inflatable cushion. One day they skied to Les Arcs & all its runs including the glacier - 78km of skiing! Vincent also arranged early evening fun with lazerzone and tobogganing. Brilliant. Book it now!
We were lucky enough to be in a weeks ski school level 2 in La PLagne. Our teacher was Francoise 'Bushman'. He was an exceptional teacher. He helped me overcome all my ski fears and given me so much confidence. Bushman was incredible caring, friendly and supportive. He made the ski class fun, which is essential for this kind of activity. I can not thank him enough. We had a wine and cheese laid in by ESF which was a lovely touch. We also had champagne and cheese in our group on the last day. Wow. That was a memorable treat and I will look back with fond memories. When we come back to la plagne I would want Bushman to teach me again. Such a credit to your team. Please can he be recognised for his exceptional teaching.
The instructors are great with the kids. Our two eldest children have followed all courses till the bronze medal. I must say that their technical skiing is very good.
I advise all parents to have their kids follow your skiing education plan.
