Firstrax Ski School, Les Deux Alpes

Quality tuition in small classes with English speaking instructors

This ski and snowboard school was first set up in Les Deux Alpes in 2013 and has gained a phenomenal reputation (just have a look at the reviews below) as providers of quality tuition specialising in teaching in small groups. 

Group Lessons
If you are looking for a great ski school that provide group lessons which give you all the attention you need whether you are stepping onto the slopes for the first time or if you are perfecting your technique off piste, then this is the school for you. With FirsTrax it is almost like having a private lesson with only 4 in the group. Of course, if you do want one to one tuition, that is also available. 

All their fully qualified international instructors have a wealth of experience, some who have been working in Les Deux Alpes for over 20 years, so they can show you the best parts of resort most suitable for your level. You won't need to worry about any communication barriers, as they have tutors who speak fluent English. 

They teach both skiing and snowboarding as well as freestyle where you can learn to do all sorts of fun tricks in the park. If you'd like to ski off-piste, then you can enjoy a Freeride lesson making fresh tracks in deep powder with all the safety equipment provided, either in Les 2 Alpes or in nearby La Grave. Prices start at just €225 per person for 2 hours over 6 days for ski or snowboard lessons.

Private Lessons
This school is dedicated to providing quality tuition tailor-made to your needs and your personal goals. All their fully qualified English speaking instructors have an in-depth knowledge of resort, some of who have been working in Les Deux Alpes for over 20 years. Whatever your level, from complete beginner to a confident black run skier, they will be able to help you make real progress and perfect your technique. 

The school offers Video Analysis with their private lessons. Your private lessons will be filmed and you can review the video with your instructor and have a free theory lesson. For those that want to try something a little different, they also offer freestyle lessons where you can develop your skills in the park or get stuck into the deep powder off piste with a freeride class. 

You can choose to learn on your own or with up to 3 other friends of a similar level to make a group of 4. Prices start at €88 for 1 person for 2 hours.

Children's Lessons
The school teach children as young as 4 years old in a maximum group size of 4. Where possible they will teach groups according to age and not just level. Lessons available in mornings and afternoons, children will receive a medal at the end of the week. Ages 4-16yrs. Prices start at €225 per child for 2 hours over 6 days for ski lesson.

Worth knowing

Firstrax also have a large ski and snowboard rental shop, so you can organise your lessons and pick up your equipment all under the same roof. 


Visitor comments

  • "This was our first visit to L2A as a group of 4 (2 couples in mid 20's). We chose to ski with Firstrax because 2 of our group were beginners - intermediate and 2 were more advanced. Firstrax were very accommodating in providing all of our lessons at the same time as well as being fantastic instructors. I personally skied with Luca (owner of ski school) - he was an incredible skier and insightful about the mountain. He pushed us to our limits with off piste skiing I would never have had the confidence to do without him." - Trip Advisor
  • "One of my daughters had a snow board lesson which she enjoyed. I think the group lessons of four are extremely useful, this becomes apparent when you see other companies taking large groups of children 10+ in a group making it hard to see how they can get the tuition in such a large group. Marco and his team were helpful, knowledgable and went out of their way to meet our needs and we would consider returning to Les Deux Alpes simply for this tuition. Thank-you First Trax." - Trip Advisor
  • "Our group consisted of three beginners with one week's skiing experience and one other who had skied eight times before. We liked the look of them because they only taught small groups to give more one-on-one tuition, unlike the bigger European Ski Schools. They set a maximum of four students in a group at once and were also cheaper than the other schools, offering discounts on ski passes and other restaurants and bars around the town. We all booked two-hour lessons for six consecutive days - the beginners were taught by Luca and the experienced group by Max. Both were hugely talented skiers and instructors, with decades of experience behind them. By the end of the week, Luca had the beginners skiing down black runs with confidence, while the experienced group was heading off piste and down slalom runs with style." - Trip Advisor
