École de ski à Tignes | Snocool5.0 Based on 39 reviews fromSee all reviews review us onAnnabelle SmithAnnabelle Smith ★★★★★ THE BEST ski school. Amazing teachers, small groups. The kids had a lot of fun with the teachers here and also made fast progress. The people in the office go out of their way to make sure you get what you need. Amazing ski school.Namawa BakayokoNamawa Bakayoko ★★★★★ Nous avons passés un super moment avec l’équipe de Snocool. Mention spéciale à Misha pour sa disponibilité, son écoute et sa gentillesse. Bien évidemment je n’oublie pas Julien pour sa patience. Un grand merci à vous!!!VIRGINIE GRAUFFELVIRGINIE GRAUFFEL ★★★★★ ValbrousseValbrousse ★★★★★ Première année pour mes deux enfants, Rlise 8 ans et Clément 6 ans. Accueil très chaleureux dès le premier jour. Les moniteurs sont très sympas et la taille des groupes (maximum 6 enfants) favorise la progression et donne un côté beaucoup plus humain. Ma fille qui avait eu une mauvaise expérience avec l’ESF a retrouvé le plaisir de skier grâce à Joëlle et Christelle. Je suis très heureuse d’avoir choisi Snocool et nous continuerons l’année prochaine avec eux.Kate RobinsonKate Robinson ★★★★★ Really friendly ski school, small groups (max 6 children), always kind and friendly instructors. Highly recommended!Mark GallagherMark Gallagher ★★★★★ Absolutely outstanding ski school. We’ve just returned from Sainte Foy, which we visited over the UK half term. Our extended family had kids with ages ranging 4-9 and from first time on skis to (returning Snocool kids) paralleling down blacks. The instructors are outstanding; calm, attentive and fun. All of the kids LOVE Snocool. I’m so impressed with the rapid progression all the kids have demonstrated. This is of course is owing to firstly to the fantastic instructors, very small groups and the sheer amount of skiing that the infrastructure at Sainte Foy provides (with its very well connected lifts and minuscule queues on even the busiest weeks of the year= much more skiing packed into the ski school day). No better place for the family to learn to ski. We’ll be returning next year and are already counting down the days. Can’t recommend highly enough!Stacey SunleyStacey Sunley ★★★★★ We could not have had a better experience with Snocool, from booking the lessons through Misha to the one to one lessons with Christelle. My son had never skied before but loved every minute of his lessons and watching his confidence grow over the course of the week was fabulous, he was skiing independently down the reds within a week! We couldn’t have chosen a more suited instructor and would highly recommend Snocool! We will definitely be going back!Maria Silva UrreaMaria Silva Urrea ★★★★★ I took 6 hours of lessons with François over the course of 3 days and it was a great experience! After doing a lot of research with different ski schools, Snocool had very competitive rates for private lessons, which is why I chose them! They made the experience a fantastic one, it was easy to book with Misha, the logistics were very easy and clear, and most importantly, the experience with the instructor (François) was very helpful. I gained a lot of confidence and feel like I improved a lot. I really appreciated how he had high expectations of my performance and continued to challenge me even when I wasn’t following his instructions 🤣 he did not go easy on me, which I feel is exactly what I needed to make progress. If I had stayed longer in Val d’Isere I would have definitely booked more lessons. Thank you to the Snocool team!PhoebePhoebe ★★★★★ Joelle was a brilliant ski instructor. She made our time very enjoyable and has a strong talent for teaching. I would highly recommend requesting her! I hope to have her as a ski teacher again when we’re back in Sainte-Foy. My partner also had Denis for snowboarding and he had a great time and was able to learn a lot. They were both spectacular! Highly recommend.Emily C GEmily C G ★★★★★ Norbert was great! Very patient and helped me improve my technique in one afternoon. Merci beacoup!!Laure BougardLaure Bougard ★★★★★ J’ai pris 4 heures de cours avec François et j’en suis ravie.J’ai pris peur lors de mon premier jour au ski, il a su me redonner confiance en étant très patient et en me donnant les bonnes astuces pour skier.Je ne regrette pas mon choix.Ross CookRoss Cook ★★★★★ Fantastic organisation. Went guiding with my brother in Tignes. We had Tom Gruber as our guide. He was excellentand found great snow for us in some incredible places. I'm fairly sure he knows the name and how to get to every single couloir in the Alps!Misha is hugely helpful to sort out the admin. There's a lot of potential for problems with having to have the right equipment, meeting times etc., but she made everything clear and easy to follow.Can't recommend them enough!George MillerGeorge Miller ★★★★★ Great experience, perfect oppourtunity to explore new terrain !Paul RicePaul Rice ★★★★★ We had 2 days with Patrick who made our holiday. He took us everywhere around Tignes and showed us what we're the best runs for our ability (intermediate). I would highly recommend Snocool for group or private lessons. Correspondence with Misha was also excellent. Looking forward to seeing Patrick next year.Alexey GrushetskyAlexey Grushetsky ★★★★★ My daughter recently took private snowboarding lessons: she enjoyed it a lot! Not only the instructor helped to improve her skills, but also gave confidence that she is ready for more difficult slopes.Thanks Stevo and Snocool!Alexis CalonneAlexis Calonne ★★★★★ On a passé une semaine sur les hors pistes de Tignes, on s'est gavé ! P-G a été notre coach, guide et pote durant 5 jours. Un grand merci à lui et toute l'équipe de Snocool. Je recommandeLisa CousinsLisa Cousins ★★★★★ Amazing week with Fred! Thank you SO much. I really feel that I progressed and gained confidence and commitment. So gratefulMeriel YoungerMeriel Younger ★★★★★ Both of our kids have had a fantastic experience with the instructors at Snocool. One of our children is an extremely capable skier and was matched with an excellent instructor who tweaked his style and technique. Our other child is a bit nervous and less capable and she was matched with the most caring and patient instructor...what a job she did! Amazing. Our little girl now enjoys skiing and is more confident and progressing. Thank you Snocool....! We'll be back next year!Tudor ThomasTudor Thomas ★★★★★ Frederick guided my son and I today through rapidly changing conditions and visibility. We are mixed capabilities and outlook. He did an awesome job: found intro off piste initially to find our level and pushed the envelope in all ways, always looking for the best opportunity and connecting with us on differing levels. In 40 years of skiing, the best guide I have the pleasure of meeting. Tres bien!Jonas Alves SimõesJonas Alves Simões ★★★★★ Great service! We did 2 classes with Patrick and he was an amazing teacher, with patience, teaching us good tricks and really funny guy! I would def recommend itHannou JelilHannou Jelil ★★★★★ J'ai passé un super moment avec Nils qui a été très pédagogue, rassurant et encourageant. C'est un excellent prof et je ne regrette absolument pas d'avoir rechaussé des skis avec lui après 20ans !Tout s'est très bien passé de la réservation par mail via Misha qui est très disponible pour transmettre toutes les informations jusqu'à la fin de mon cours !Encore merci à Nils et à Snocool 🙂Arnaud JuifArnaud Juif ★★★★★ Une journée héliski exceptionnelle organisée par Snocool !Yasmina PYasmina P ★★★★★ Merci à Niels qui m’a réconciliée avec le ski et m’a permis de beaucoup progresser en seulement 2h !

Merci aussi pour notre dernier échange lorsque l’on s’est croisé sur les pistes, on a d’ailleurs suivi vos conseils 😉 et c’était super.Nous reviendrons quand nous serons dans le coin sans hésiter.Chanel et NathanGuyGuy ★★★★★ My wife and I just spent 1 week skiing in Tignes / Val D’Isere. We easily and quickly booked a few days of separate ski instruction and ski guide days with Snoccol and had a great time.Since my wife skis on-piste intermediates /advanced and I ski expert groomers and off-piste we booked separate itineraries and guides. We both fully enjoyed our ski instructor guides and how well they knew our abilities and the mountain’s terrain and conditions, making our days on the mountain awesome. We highly recommend booking with Snocool when skiing at Tignes/Val D’Isere.ROUSSEL olivierROUSSEL olivier ★★★★★ Un grand merci à snocool qui nous a initiés au ski et appris les fondamentaux en une session de 2h.Merci à Misha pour la prise de rdv, la gestion des équipements...nous avons eu du tout "clefs en mains" à prix sympa , étant novices nous avons apprécié !Et bien entendu un grand merci au moniteur Patrick pour sa sympathie, son professionnalisme et sa patience...nous souhaitions une simple initiation au ski et grâce à lui nous y avons pris goût et passé notre semaine à travailler et progresser.Olivier et Sylviejs_loader
