ESI Arc-en-ciel is a small school where clients and instructors meet in a family atmosphere and in a friendly spirit. We, therefore, welcome you to the little "Rainbow" family.

Instructors from the region and beyond enjoy working in a multicultural, multilingual and cohesive team.

For several years now we have had the pleasure of working with a loyal and motivated team of 10 seasonal workers and about 35 trained auxiliaries, the majority of whom are J+S and/or Swiss Snowsports Association.

Our ski school wishes to offer you excellent quality of service. Your PROGRESS, FUN, and SMILE are our best rewards.

In this well established and proactive organization, we do not forget our great secretaries and nannies.

Testimony of Katia

20 years of Arc-en-ciel : Katia's testimony "I have kept excellent memories of all these courses in Arc-en-ciel ! And also of all the races organized by the school. It is true that skiing was not necessarily my favourite sport, and during my first participation in one of these races, my parents thinking that I had arrived last wanted to leave when, to the greatest of surprises, I am called upon to climb the first step of the podium! I also remember my participation in the Migros Grand Prix... it was, and it remains, a great race for the children, and despite my huge failure in my first participation, the ski teachers at Arc-en-ciel encouraged me to do it again, and they were right. Even if I didn't win, I kept great memories and good pictures:) . After a while, I had to stop skiing lessons but I never stopped skiing. I was lucky enough to be able to do a one-week internship to discover the profession of ski instructor in the same school where I learned to ski. The following year, the principal, Marina Praz-Wicki, asked me if I wanted to work in her school. It was with great pleasure and a little stress that I accepted. This season will be my seventh as a ski instructor at Arc-en-ciel, and I still have as much fun passing on to the children everything I have learned in this school..."...
