My wife Demetra and I had never tried the ski chalet concept before with the children but the staff were there to help and answer any questions that we may have had. The meals were fantastic and a great chance to relax at the end of the day knowing that the children were safely in bed! It was obvious that the staff were very used to catering and hosting families and they couldn’t have been friendlier with our three.
Our children Jonah, Lucas and Eve progressed so well in their Sprite Ski classes – they loved their instructors and whilst they were hesitant for the first morning (as we all were) they loved skiing in a group of children of a similar age and experience. Funnily enough they were much happier in their ski classes than they were taking tips from their Dad – funny that!
The skiing was wonderful – we had the perfect mixture of skiing in an adult group in the mornings and having the chance to ski hard or gently as the mood took us – then of course the obligatory lunch on the hill and then back in time to meet the children after their lesson. Most afternoons we would ski a little more with them, which was a wonderful chance to see how they’d improved.
By the end of the week we had reached the skiing heaven of all of us skiing the same slope and having a great time doing it – that first run together will stay with us for a while. In fact the children were disappointed to find that we couldn’t trade our summer holiday for a skiing one!
All in all we had a wonderful time and I’d heartily recommend skiing and in particular skiing with Esprit ski to anyone.

The chalet exceeded our expectations and was of a very high standard. We especially enjoyed the spacious rooms, the high quality decoration, the great views over the valley and the hot tub.Backhouse Family - Chalet Castor, Peisey, January 2010
