Frequently Asked Questions
Where is your meeting point for lessons?
Most of our lessons start and finish in front of Les Prodains Telepherique in Avoriaz, by the big piste map. We can sometimes arrange to meet groups at the top of the Ardent telecabine in Lindarets, and the top of the Super Morzine telecabine too if it fits our schedule.
Will the lessons be in English?
Yes, we know this is important to you so all our instructors speak fluent English. For all but one of us English is our first language. Luc is Dutch but his English is excellent. For those of you who wish to book a Dutch or French speaking instructor, this is possible.
Not all ski schools provide a good experience - will F2S be different?
We often hear stories of impatient instructors, a lack of general care and massive class sizes. We are the opposite to all of these and pride ourselves on these qualities.
Why are F2S lessons more expensive than some other ski schools?
We do not rely on large numbers to fill classes so therefore must charge more. All our lesson prices reflect the quality service you will receive. To qualify as a BASI ISTD level instructor, it currently takes an average of 6 to 7 yrs of hard training, assessment and commitment. With the high euro exchange rate, our competitors are more expensive so F2S provides great value.
Will my child enjoy ski school?
Our Freedom Seeker, Rider and Teens courses focus on having fun, improving technical skiing and learning on the move, in a safe, encouraging environment. Having a group size ranging from 4-7 young people ensures individual attention, maximum care, a higher level of controllable safety, loads of fun, and energized group dynamics. 100% of our young clients say they enjoy our lessons!
Will there be a break during the lessons?
We often have a short break during 3 hour sessions to refuel. This is particularly important for children so it is always a very good idea to pop a little snack into your child's pocket and send a bottle of water/juice with them. If the lesson is over 2hrs, and it is a cold day, it is a good idea to give them some money to be able to purchase a hot drink if need be. Always take your child to the toilet before the lesson, since once the instructor has left the meeting point it is sometimes quite hard to find a toilet nearby and can be quite distressing for the child.
What equipment will I need and do you provide it?
Skis, poles and ski boots and a ski pass are all required. For children, make sure they have a helmet. I'm afraid we don’t provide these extras so you will need to sort these out first. All first week beginner Avoriaz based lessons will only require local 'Avoriaz ' lift passes. (It is less expensive than the PDS pass but covers less ski runs). For confident blue run and above skiers we would normally recommend purchasing the ‘Portes du Soleil’ pass. This will enable you ski into Switzerland and explore the area fully.
