    Great experience and fantastic instructor
    I had not made a reservation before I arrived in Val Thorens but Ski Cool was very helpful and flexible with options since I was unsure about what level of lesson I needed. The people in our snowboarding class were at different levels, but our instructor made a plan for how to organize the lessons to ensure we all got the most benefit from them. Our snowboard instructor Arthur was very patient and a great coach. He also took us to different parts of the mountain every time which was very useful to get to know which runs were best for snowboarding. He challenged us to do more things than we thought we could do, especially on the days with poor visibility and I really enjoyed my lessons. I felt I definitely had improved by the end of the week. The week of lessons I had with Ski Cool was great value for money and all the staff were very professional and helpful.

    Amazing guide and teacher Maud
    What an amazing off piste session guided by Maud who was absolutely incredible. She later took the kids for a lesson and was equally brilliant with the eleven year olds . Couldn’t recommend her and this company more highly.
    Thank you for your kind words ! 😊We're delighted that Maud made your off-piste session and the kids' lesson equally brilliant. We truly appreciate your recommendation and look forward to more memorable adventures with you in the future! ⛷️🏂

    A great week of lessons
    We had the best week with SkiCool and our instructor Arthur. This is our second year with the class. We were in the intermediate class and we learned so much. Arthur was very present and reassuring. We will definitely be back. Really recommend if you want to learn how to ski. We even got a day trip to Meribel which was amazing. Thanks SkiCool :)
    Thanks Sarah ! 😉 It's wonderful to hear that you had the best week with SkiCool and our instructor Arthur!

We have just finished a week of three hour daily lessons with the magnificent Manu. He was so professional and patient; mewing the needs of our very mixed group. He took out our least confident member of the family for the first hour, and even helped her to crack her fear of getting off the chairlifts! Then he spent time with our more intermediate and experienced skiers, tailoring his tuition to their skill levels. This is the second time we have used Ski Cool in Val Thorens and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others. A very professional service! Thank you!

We booked private lessons for my children on a day when group lessons were unavaible. SkiCool was great to work with. They accommodated our desire to have the kids ski together even though they were at different levels and they offered more flexibility with lesson times than other ski schools. The instructor, Laurence, was kind and friendly and my girls were very comfortable with her.

At Ski Cool, we like to combine good humor and professionalism in a family setting. It's always gratifying to know that our efforts are appreciated. We look forward to seeing you next time you come back to Val Thorens!

My 3 kids (15, 13, 13 yrs) had 2 longer private lessons with Manu during our week in the Trois Vallées to help them sharpen their technique and they really enjoyed skiing with him. They did some fun and different exercises, explored lots of new slopes and I could see a great progression in terms of their technique. Manu went out of his way to be friendly and helpful, re-arranging a lesson when it snowed heavily meaning we couldn't get up to Val Thorens to meet, and changed our pick-up point to make it easier to ski back down to Les Menuires as lifts were closing. Highly recommended, easy to find in Val Thorens and definitely worth trying out.

Amazing ski cool. We have gone on holidays for one week to Val thorens (december 2022) and I first saw The ski school through internet Where I book The classes for our three children (10, 9 and 7 years) two hours a day. We had a really good monitor, Cyril, that make The kids enjoy their two hours Daily classes and has been amazing the step up The kids have given due to his work. We are súper grateful for how The kids have evolutionated and how They ski now.
Next december we will be back and willing to get again The kids in The school. Great experience!

Ski Cool provides great skiing lessons for various skill levels. The teachers (I can especially recommend Manu and Phillipp) are super friendly, helpful and give a lot of individual advices even in group lessons. The office staff of Ski Cool is just as friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend choose the service of Ski Cool!

My first time skiing. I had a superb week of lessons with Flo. Wow, I certainly didn't expect to achieve so much in such a short time. Flo was the most perfect instructor for me; he was positive, patient and encouraging which helped me relax, build confidence and develop my ability. With only a small group of 4, the lessons were really personal and tailored to each of our needs, more akin to what I would expect from a private lesson. Flo listened to my reservations about skiing, and adapted as we progressed through the week to suit my needs (such as no longer telling me we had reached the difficult steep part, which before instantly made my brain freeze, ha ha!). Thank you Flo :)

There were four of us on holiday. One first timer and three who had skied before. We all had an absolutely excellent experience.
Charlotte was my instructor and she was amazing. I am a 47 year old slightly timid intermediate and I made more progress in 6 days with Charlotte than I have in all my other ski holidays put together!! I would plan another ski trip to Val Thorens just so I can use this ski school again. Thank you so much!

Ski Cool Lesson with Dennis was fantastic. Have been skiing for about 10 years and just wanted a technique tune up. Denis took us right back to fundamentals and the results were amazing. Ended the lesson feeling much more confident with a much more efficient and fluid skiing style. Would definitely recommend Denis and Ski Cool if you're looking for a friendly fun technique tune up. Brilliant!!
