The Villars Swiss Ski School (ESS) offers quality instruction throughout the winter in Villars and Bretaye, with a range of lessons suited to your skiing and snowboarding ability. Ski on your own or in a group while your instructor safely guides you down the blue, red or black runs of the Villars-Gryon-Les Diablerets area. Whether you snow-plough or parallel ski, the Villars ESS only has one aim: to ensure your enjoyment and safety!
The Villars Swiss Ski School is the oldest school in Villars. Founded in 1932, it now has 300 trained instructors to provide you with top quality instruction adapted to all abilities and ages. If you want to learn to ski or snowboard or introduce your child to the pleasures of alpine sports, don't hesitate to sign up for a private or group lesson to make the best progress. For little ones, lessons start in the Bretaye or Villars snow villages, where your children can have their experiences in a fun and adapted environment. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, the Villars Swiss Ski School also offers snow shoeing, cross-country skiing and biathlon lessons, paragliding and disabled skiing. In the summer, the ski instructors hand over to mountain guides who can take you on one of 120 hikes for all abilities. There are also summer programmes for children and families for you to enjoy.
