Try our competition course / internship

Take your performance to the next level

With ESF we offer a real competitive angle with courses and tests in the Flechette or Chamois d'Or. This  course is for children who are showing real promise and have that competitive nature and want to further stretch themselves.
During busy periods only.

Students in these courses are regularly characterised by excellent results in national competitions such as the Gold Star, the Ski d'Or and the Coq d'Or (8 times winner of Ski gold since 1999). Supervised by specially selected  competition instructors under the responsibility of Alain Calvez, there are spaces/ internships each year to allow some young people to train to become a ski instructor. At ESF we can accompany your children to this event.
The choice of course should be relevant to the age and the level of the pupil. ESF reserves the right to move a child up or down in a group to ensure they are receiving the correct tuition for their level.

At all levels, lunch with an instructor can be arranged.


For younger children this course is suitable for the improvement from the group lessons or TOP6.

This course will prepare children to compete at the ESF tests Etoile d'Or at the Flechette or Fleche de Bronze. The course will work on slalom skills, involve technical workshops, free skiing and with an emphasis on strong technical input, guaranteed to improve line and direction.

Minimum technical level required: Bronze Star and/or Gold Star
Lift pass is not included.
