How can I go to the meeting points?

On each site, you will find a car park. Careful however, they tend to be full very early in the morning!
We suggest you take the Les Rousses SkiBus shuttle at your disposal. Please check the times and the stops of the shuttle before hand. All the information is available at Les Rousses ski resort here.

Do I need to show a card with my course booking confirmation?

ESF Les Rousses does not deliver a card when buying on site or by phone, whether it is for private or group lessons. If you have booked online, you should have received an eCard and a email with the confirmation of your booking. You can present one of these to the instructor on your first day.
If you did not come with a justification, no need to worry! Our instructors often check their student lists at the beginning of every lesson. You will be able to assist !

Where can I rent my equipment?

We remind you that the equipment is NOT PROVIDED by ESF.

ESF Les Rousses does work with one ski rental company in particular but with everyone of them!
You therefore have the choice to rent wherever you see fit.
Please know that several ski rental companies are available in each village of the resort (Les Rousses, Bois d’Amont, Prémanon or Lamoura), and some of them are even at the foot of the slopes!
We recommend you look on the internet to find the closest renting company to where you are staying or to the meeting point of your lesson.
