They went there, they came back and they talk about it :

"We were enchanted by Fred's disponibility both by phone and by mail. Our stay's organisation corresponded to our expectation.

The snow cover of the location we were supposed to ski wasn't there for us. However, our stay went well thanks to Fred being responsive and quickly changed our ski pass on another location...

LEVEL: 

 

The cross-country ski course will be supervised by a local ski instructor. He will give you the keys to improve your technique by analysing it and adding the required corrections. In private courses or among reasonable sized groups (from 4 to 8 people) and with a homogenous level, all the conditions will be gathered to turn your stay into great moments of pleasures and glidings.

Cross-country skiing is a discipline requiring, whichever your level is, a minimum of physical condition, that's why we advise you (as far as possible) to prepare yourself physically* by practicing some gymnastic exercises, walking, jogging or bycicling for a few weeks before departure (it is even better if you do it all year round...) so you can acquire stamina or reinforce it.

* we can, by demand, give you more precisions for a better training
