Morzine ski school ESI Morzine

Our Story Ski & Snowboard Academy

In 1999 Christophe Chaudieu, founder of Easy2Ride leaves 360 International in Les Gets (created 3 years prior) , to start a new adventure in Morzine.


Why Morzine?

With the exception of Morzine, ESI (Ecole de Ski Internationale) are already present in various big resorts across France. The absence of an ESI, Morzine’s proximity to Geneva airport, and an increasing number British clientele interested in the Portes du Soleil ski area, made it the perfect opportunity to locate to Morzine.


The new team was made up of four instructors and one office member, and named themselves E2SA “Ecole Ski Snowboard & Aventures”

They had two main objectives:

  1. Create a school with high quality service and personalised instruction by highly qualified professionals.

  2. Recruit some of the best, fully qualified instructors around, bilingual, and not afraid of joining a new adventure.

Despite the difficulties to start up, including established and strong competition, our objectives seemed to pay off. Clients like the idea of an alternative ski school with a more personalised approach.


  • John

    "Cannot thank the staff enough , started with a great lesson , but was put down a class , which I was not happy with , as no explanation, although after consultation with staff who have been excellent , I was given a private lesson, which I must admit has helped me enormously and boosted my confidence , would highly recommend this company as they are so professional and also listen to what I had to say and gave me the tuition I needed , so if you want a ski lesson in the alps , this is the place to go , all you have to do is talk to them and you will get exactly what you need , thanks to all the staff "

  • Linda

    "Fantastic, my 6 year old learnt so much, developed his confidence and adored his instructor Pierre. Organisation and communication was excellent. I also had lessons over 3 days which were perfectly paced to challenge and extend my own skiing in an enjoyable and supportive way. Great service"

  • Richard

    "Great ski instructor who made a huge difference to our holiday. Having booked holiday late most ski schools responded as fully booked, Easy 2 ride were very helpful, came up with some early and late private lesson alternatives, my son progressed from skiing into snow banks to a proficient and safe skier tackling difficult runs after a few lessons. Progress was rapid after each lesson and the instructor was excellent, a good teacher, knowledgeable with a sense of humour. Would definitely book again and hopefully with the same instructor."

  • Steven

    "Being half term week every ski school in Morzine was on the slopes and we were pleased our 9 year old son had a place with Easy 2 Ride. True to their word his group was limited to 6 while we observed other groups of ten or more with single instructors. Coco, our son's instructor, had the group skiing good challenging runs from day one despite being aimed at complete beginners level. Our son has taken a huge amount from the positive experience."

  • Lee

    "This is our 5th year in Morzine and E2R were as always superb . Ski school instructors were excellent . Patrice is one of their favorites. Edwina in the office is so helpful with bookings and arranging times for school and private lessons . Can’t wait for 2019"


A traditional savoyarde town in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, Morzine is dominated by chalets spread across a river gorge, bordered by partially wooded slopes allowing skiing in poor weather conditions. Situated at an altitude of 1000 m, it is one of the most northerly of the French Alpine resorts, and weatherwise benefits from the Mont Blanc microclimate. The locality enjoys panoramic mountain views and modern ski facilities, as well as hotels and restaurants in the town itself. The ski resort of Avoriaz is located on the territory of the commune.
