All the E.S.F instructors from Megève are the holders of valid authorisation to teach skiing and its associated disciplines.


The client and/or pupil is not insured by the ESF. To avoid risks and financial trouble following an accident, remember to subscribe to a specific insurance. (ESF Megève recommend E-Gloo Protect) .

The client and/or pupil is wholly responsible for their equipment. The instructors cannot be held responsible for prejudice caused by the said equipment or in the case of theft or damage to the latter.


The client informs the E.S.F Megève of his or her choice thanks to the official documents that he or she fills in and returns to the E.S.F.

In order for the lessons to run smoothly, it is important that the skiers be of the same level. Given the fact that it is impossible from a practical point of view for the E.S.F. instructors Megève to check the level of each client and/or pupil prior to their enrolment, the latter is responsible for the choice of the technical level that he or she selects according to the grid established by the E.S.F. Megève.

Consequently, the E.S.F Megève reserves the right to reincorporate into a group that is more in line with their level a skier whose level does not correspond to their declaration. This is on condition that there is a space in one of the other groups. The skier will not be able to claim any reimbursement or compensation for this situation that is due solely to his or her declaration.

In order to attend a ski lesson, the client and/or pupil has to have their lesson card in hand.


The prices quoted include the teaching provided by an E.S.F. instructor Megève, and do not include any other services (insurance, ski lifts, accommodation, etc.), unless specified otherwise.

Consequently, the client and/or pupil must ensure, at the time at which the lesson is scheduled to take place, that he or she has on them a ski pass that enables them to access the ski lifts and according to their choice, insurance that covers them against the risks inherent to pursuing a sporting activity in a mountain environment (civil liability, assistance, etc).

The price of the children group lessons includes the medal at 7 €. All profits will be donated to the Caisse de Secours of the ESF Megève. If you do not want the medal, a refund may be made, at the end of the week, on return of the medal, in one of our offices ESF.
