ESS Les Diablerets

Ecole Suisse de Ski - Diablerets (ESS)

The Les Diablerets Swiss Ski & Snowboard School offers a variety of lessons adapted to all abilities. Learn or perfect your technique on the slopes of the different ski areas of Villars-Gryon-Les Diablerets in the heart of the Vaud Alps. Here, everyone learns at their own pace and has fun.

In Les Diablerets, the Swiss Ski & Snowboard School (ESS) has the advantage of having several areas for teaching. The season starts early at Glacier 3000 when snow may be lacking at medium altitudes and the last lessons end under the spring sun when the snow has already melted lower down. Le Meilleret, a ski-in/ski-out resort connected to Villars-Gryon, is an ideal location for lessons. The ESS has arranged alternative solutions to make up for the fact that the Isenau ski area will be unavailable this season, so everyone can progress at their own pace on suitable runs.
• The ESS also has a Snow Village for little ones aged 3 to 4. 
Opt for group lessons if you want to learn and progress in a friendly, dynamic ambiance or choose private lessons, adapted to your timetable, to progress quickly.

• The ESS also offers a special course outside the school holidays called the Up Grade course. This semi-private course is run on a one-to-one or two-to-one basis at a great price.

• You can also have a go at ski touring by joining an excursion from Les Diablerets to the Isenau ski area with a picnic at the top.
