Oxygène offers some of the best ski-guiding in La Plagne.
Discover fresh, untouched snow with our highly-qualified off-piste guides. Your tuition includes all safety equipment - essential for providing a secure and enjoyable day of exploring ungroomed terrain. A 3-hour lesson is recommended if it’s your first time off-piste; this includes technical tuition as well as discovery of the domain.
All Oxygène instructors are fully qualified and fluent in most major foreign languages, including English and French. With a team of over 100 instructors, they offer lessons for adults or children in a range of disciplines including snowboard, cross-country, telemark and off-piste skiing. A ski lesson with Oxygène guarantees you the best instruction from a fully professional team.
The company offers different off-piste courses to suit a variety of tastes and abilities. Their Steep & Deep course is great value if you’re looking for the chance to ski off-piste all week with like-minded skiers of your own ability. However, if you’re searching for something more personal, check out their private lessons and enjoy one-on-one tuition with your very own instructor or guide…
If you’re a fit and experienced off-piste skier why not tackle the Tarentaise Tour? You’ll ski from 09:00 - 17:00 both on and off-piste, travelling through 8 ski resorts, including Val d’Isère, Tignes, Champagny, La Plagne, Montchavin, Peisey Nancroix, Les Arcs, and Villaroger.
Or you can choose from single or multiple-drop itineraries flying from nearby La Rosière right next door to Val d’Isère on the Italian border. It’s the only resort in Savoie to offer helicopter drops over the Val d’Aoste massifs.
- "I took an off-piste lesson (3hrs) with 2 others from the hotel and we were guided/taught by Boris. He was a great character - very relaxed but also really inspired confidence in all 3 of us (This was just as well as he handed out our avalanche transponders and guided us under the ropes at the top of the Roche de Mio!). For a first off piste lesson it was daunting, but Boris had assessed our skiing on the way to the location and picked 2 challenging yet rewarding and ultimately enjoyable slopes on which to teach us some skills. A great and very memorable experience." - Trip Advisor
- "We (me and my girlfriend) had 2 days 2 hours private snowboard lessons. The lessons were awesome and off great value (and great powder as well ;)). We noticed the instructor himself enjoyed the lessons as much as we did. Great job guys!" - Trip Advisor
- "We got the advanced lessons with oxygene and loved every minute of them. I have taken lessons in lots of resorts but I really liked the style of lessons and found the instruction much more useful than some other schools. Thoroughly recommend" - Trip Advisor
What to bring
Oxygène will provide all safety equipment. They recommend helmets for everyone going off-piste, plus wrist guards and protective impact shorts for snowboarders. Make sure you are wearing thermals, gloves, sun cream, sunglasses or goggles. You should feel comfortable in your boots – one pair of socks is sufficient and store them in a warm, dry place overnight.
