Why Evolution2?

Evolution 2 is more than just an ordinary ski school.  Founded in 1987, we have always been a forward thinking ski school that shook up how skiing is taught in France.  We are now extremely proud that many of our principles and methods of teaching have been replicated by other ski schools all over Europe.

Teaching Philosophy

Our teaching philosophy is simple.  We believe that learning is best achieved in small groups, by instructors who are specialists in their field and with an emphasis on real progression and fun.  Our aim is to see you advance leaps and bounds in your technique, but never forgetting the key is to always enjoy your time on the snow!
