5th Element Ski School, a philosophy apart


With over 15 years’ experience and state qualifications, we decided to create a group of independent instructors in our own image: 5th Element Ski School.

After a decade in Avoriaz, the resort no longer holds any secrets for us. Our mission is to help you discover it through the sport we love.

Because everyone is unique and learns differently, 5th Element Ski School adapts to your personality and your expectations. We look forward to offering you an original approach and tailor-made support, guaranteeing you good humour and fun at every session.

Finally, we’re keen to share our love of this magical environment with you. Our playground will fill you with wonder, while always respecting nature.


“The mountains provide the backdrop; it’s up to us to invent the story that goes with it.
