Ski Schools

There are lots to choose from in La Plagne - so it really depends on what you are after and what your budget is.  New in La Plagne this season is the English company New Generation who we work with in Peisey.  It is always better to pre-book lessons to avoid disappointment.

Oxygène Ski & Snowboard School

Based in Plagne Centre, Oxygène Ski & Snowboard School can offer English speaking group and private lessons for children, adults and snowboarders all season -ong for complete beginners to the expert off-piste go-getter. They even have a Value Package deal available for beginners. Oxygène can also offer a pick up service from the chalet if requested which leaves from the end of the lane - particularly good for children or beginners.

Their easy-to-use website is below. When you book, let them know that you're staying in Chalet Chanterelle/Ski Hiver Plagne 1800. If you have any questions please ask.

Reflex Ski School

We can also recommend Reflex Ski School for private lessons. They are a small company offering a superb tailor-made service to suit the individual or small group. Their instructors know La Plagne very well and speak good English and are all fully qualified.  Reflex is recognized as the specialist in Private lessons, off-piste and snowshoeing.  We are happy to help book these lessons for you - or ask your chalet host to contact them in resort.

Reflex's options at a glance:

  • Make your own group: If you have a group of 4 people or more who can ski at the same level, why not make your own group? Have some fun with friends and family and get a bargain.
  • Private Lessons - mornings, luntimes or afternoons - these guys are specialists in Private lessons.
  • Off-piste Lessons: Great opportunity to discover some of the hot spots off-piste which make La Plagne a great location to ski. Safety equipment is provided.

Snow shoeing treks: Any level during the day, but why not trying snowshoeing at dusk? The early evening trip starts at around 4.00pm. This is a slightly sporty trip with some vin chaud on offer at the finish. It runs for 1 ½ hours to 2 hours at 25 per person (€55 with dinner).

The meeting point is generally in front of the Restaurant La Maison which is by the Funiplagne cable car although for private lessons it is possible to meet in Plagne 1800 on request.

New Generation Ski School

An English-run ski school who we have worked with at our Peisey, Les Arcs chalets and whom have been a popular choice over the years. They are more expensive than the others although private lessons are comparative. However they do offer more intense lessons.  They also do kids group lessons. They only have a small team in La Plagne so advanced booking is strongly advised.

We are happy to check availability or offer further advice. You can book online too -

  • Hi, I am sorry its taken so long, but I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your staff. We loved the chalet. We had a fab time and could not have wished for more. Two very new skiers now hooked and one with rekindled passion. Thank you again Martin, Lou and James
  • Can you please pass on your thanks to your team, especially Kate and Loreen, for a great time we had. What a wonderfully spacious chalet in the lovely village, perfect for families. The food was perfect and plentiful, and the hosting was really friendly and relaxed. Many thanks Dominic, Janice and Murray Pearson
  • Thanks for a great week – your organisation was faultless with ski passes and lessons available as promised on arrival, the ski hire was so convenient being run “in house” and the quality met everyones requirements. Transfers were the easiest I have experienced in 30 years of skiing
