Innovative in the field of ski schools, Megève had three schools in 1930. Thanks to Emile Allais and Paul Gignoux, Megève saw the establishment of the first French method of skiing with, a few years later, the creation of the School of French skiing. Backed by its beginnings, the resort continues to evolve in learning techniques and today offers its visitors lessons for all winter sports: from skiing to snowboarding, cross-country skiing and biathlon.

With numerous offers of group and individual lessons, ski schools provide quality teaching to learn how to master, from an early age, the first sensations of skiing. But before winning the first “Piou-Piou” medal, the children must first familiarize themselves with the environment and the equipment. As soon as the little ones master the terrain and the glide, come the first lessons around small games on the slopes specially dedicated to children.
