Ski Ecole International
« Les Verts »

It was in 1975 that Michel Vachez founded the first International Ski Schools ('Ski Ecole International Les Verts'), aiming to provide winter sports enthusiasts with the choice of learning skiing in the structure of their preference. He offered small-capacity ski classes with a focus on personalized learning and the transmission of their passion for skiing. He settled in Alpe d'Huez to create his own ski school, a ski equipment rental store, and a renowned creperie, providing a comprehensive offering for a perfect stay in Alpe d'Huez.
