So I'm taking the family out in January for thier first taste of the Alps, planning on heading to Val Thorens, and looking at lessons right now. What a pain. So it seems in France there's not really much like Perisher Kids, with kids lessons either being morning or afternoon, meaning the need to entertain the kids for 2 hours over lunch. Also you book in for 5 days, 6 days or nothing. The alternative that I was offered was to go for all day private lessons - with a seperate instructor for each kid and my wife - a slight blow out in the budget! Am I doing it wrong? Anybody got any experience/advise on lessons over there?
