The ski schools have English-speaking instructors.

Summer Ski School – Les Deux Alpes

Les 2 Alpes launched the first snow camps in the summer of 1996. Since then the camps have become more and more successful and offer courses for every level and discipline including: freestyle, free ride and free carve.

 The European Ski School have put together an extensive summer programme alongside Skivolution from Courchevel and SnowPro. Benefit from high-level courses with some of Britain's top ski professionals.

Each morning for a week you can perfect or learn new skills; in the afternoon take part in dynamic and diverse activities such as skate boarding, roller blading, bungee jumping, paragliding, trampolining, climbing, mountain biking, white water…

Whether you want to learn skiing or snowboarding or improve your technique come and join our summer clinics. The courses are based on small groups for maximum progress and most instructors are English or from English speaking countries so language won’t be a problem.
