OXYGÈNE; IT’S IN THE BLOOD.

Our love for teaching runs deep. We guess you could say it’s in our blood. Join our lessons, activities and friendly ski school for a holiday like no other.

WHY WE LOVE OUR SKI SCHOOL.

It smells of adventure, determination and new beginnings. It pushes its pupils to heights and places they never thought they could reach. It’s where friendships are made, the greatest lessons are learnt and passions flourish. Its groups are filled with laughter and resilience is key. It’s built on trust and nurtured with careful guidance. It’s where secrets are shared, techniques are mastered and the best memories are made. It’s the Oxygène family. Join us and ski for yourself.

IT’S A FAMILY THING.

We’re a family-run traditionally French ski school with a twist. See here’s the thing: we love the English. Way back in the 90s – while the rest of you were singing to the Spice Girls and rocking the double denim – we set to work on building a ski school that caters for everyone. Young and old, big and small; French and English. 25 years later and our hard works’ paid off. We’ve lost the denim, but kept the blue. This time, spicing it up with some orange – an ode to our most recently acquired family member, Magic, whose superb team join us to breathe life into the Three Valleys, Paradiski and Espace Killy. With over 20 staff and 200 ski instructors spread across 8 resorts in the Tarentaise, we’re big enough to trust, yet small enough to care.

OXYGÈNE SKI & SNOWBOARD SCHOOL

THE OXYGÈNE STORY.

It all began in a quiet mountain village, deep within the French Alps. From the outside, the de Monvallier family appeared just like the rest. But there was something unique about them. A hunger and drive that lay deep within their veins. They didn’t know it then, but that passion – that insurmountable thirst for adventure would change their lives and touch the hearts of those around them for many, many years to come.

1991: Two brothers, Bertrand and Pierre de Monvallier set to work on creating a ski school business with a true family atmosphere.

1992: Oxygène Ski & Snowboard School was born. We picked our instructors and headed for the hills of La Plagne.

1993: We set up shop in La Plagne, offering ski equipment hire and fitting services from our ski-booty-licious Oxygène boutique.

1997: Growing in size, confidence and expertise, we embarked on conquering Val d’Isère’s slopes.

1998: We added télemark, cross-country, freestyle and freeride to our ski school curriculum.

2000: We answered the need for adaptive skiing services and introduced it into our teaching programme.

2004: Moving into the Three Valleys, the Oxygène fever spread to Courchevel.

2006: Our Oxygène Val d’Isère boutique was born.

2011: Teaming up with snowboard beasts, Burton, we created France’s first ever Burton Experience Centre in La Plagne.

2012: A third Monvallier brother and ski-entrepreneur – Julien – took the Oxygène brand and ran with it all the way to Belle Plagne. A new branch was built.

2012: We started coming to you. Our popular Chalet Fitting Service began running in Val d’Isère.

2016: Oxygène met 3 Valleys’ ski school favourites, Magic in Motion, and welcomed them to the family. We spread our knowledge, expertise, ski-love and laughter into Courchevel, Méribel, La Tania and Val Thorens.

2016: Sped off the success of our hit Chalet Fitting Service in Val d’Isère, we moved into the streets of La Plagne to deliver exceptional ski equipment and fitting straight to your doors.

2017: Two became one. Fully established as part of the family, today Magic is Oxygène and together we continue to breathe life into 8 ski resorts in the Tarentaise Valley.

2017: We thought it only fair to add Les Menuires into the mix too.
