Visitor comments

  • "Oxygène were fantastic and it was the best experience we have ever had with a ski school. The service from start to finish was superb. Julien looked after my booking and he was very friendly and quick to respond to any requests. The whole process was simple and smooth. Edoardo was my children’s ski instructor, he was incredible with the children! My kids can be quite shy but they warmed to Edoardo immediately and had such fun with him. They are so confident about their skiing after only 5 days and very proud of their bear badge ("medal"). Edoardo made not only the kids feel safe but also us as parents! :) I would highly recommend him to anyone. Aurélien was my ski instructor, he was really patient and helped to build my confidence skiing but also made the experience fun as well as challenging. It was great to have a lesson that meant I could enjoy the whole experience of the beautiful scenery of the mountains but also improve on my skills. I recommended him to my friend Wibke and as a result she booked a snowboarding lesson with him and improved in confidence and enjoyed the lesson too. We are all already missing the snow and will definitely book with Oxygène again." - Trip Advisor
