Make sure!

Insurance is not included in the price of our courses, so we advise you to take out insurance to cover any problems that may arise during your stay. We advise you to take out the CARTE NEIGE or the CARRE NEIGE.


Reception: an online sales system with secure payment means you can arrive in the resort with your lesson cards from our ski school. We also work with the Chamonix Tourist Office to offer you a packaging system that includes all the activities you need to make your stay a success. We also welcome you to our ski school every day during the season. The école de ski Argentière offers a full catalogue of products to meet all your needs.

Group lessons: we run group lessons with ten pupils per group for children and eight pupils per group for adults, with a tolerance of +/- 2 pupils due to changes in level and last-minute enrolments. This quota guarantees quality teaching at the école de ski Argentière. We also offer our customers all-day packages including meals for children. This service is provided in a quality restaurant and can be booked for a day or a longer stay. This service allows école de ski Argentière customers to manage their stay according to the activities they want to do.

Private lessons : these are offered on an hourly basis to satisfy all requests. If necessary, our instructors can provide transport. Subject to availability, these lessons are given in the language chosen by the customer. The computerised timetable enables us to manage supply and demand at the école de ski Argentière.

Safety precautions for skiers : All école de ski Argentière lessons are given at sites adapted to the level of our customers. Whatever your age, ability or level, the terrain will be adapted to suit you. Certain weather conditions mean that we sometimes have to reduce the number of clients in each group, in order to provide you with a quality service.
