  • "Absolutely fantastic service from the Magic in Motion team now in Val Thorens. Our 2 Children aged 7,5 had never skied before and had 7 mornings of lessons with Francois. An absolutely charming, highly experienced instructor that made the girls feel totally comfortable on the slopes and had them zooming down red runs in a week. We (2 Adults) also took Francois for an afternoon to improve technique and had a blast. Strongly recommend the new kids on the block in Val T." - Trip Advisor
  • "My 2 children 11 and 9 years skied each morning with 'Magic Marco' at Val Thorens April 2016 and had a fantastic time! They started on Green/Blue Runs and were on the chairlift within 1 hour on the first day (after a 6 hour beginners course at the Chill Factore in Manchester, UK) and ended up skiing backwards, skiing a RED run and even skiing OFF PISTE by the end of the week! Marco was a fantastic teacher, gave them great confidence from day 1, he is very passionate about skiing and friendly and because of this they had an amazing time. Magic were very professional, well organised and we really appreciated the small class sizes up to 6, this made a huge difference as this was a manageable number of children to teach. Hopefully we will be back soon! Thank you Magic - we definitely recommend Magic in Motion!" - Trip Advisor
  • "We had heard that Magic were good and it turned out to be so. My wife and I are intermediate skiers who wanted a bit of tuning and the two instructors we had were extremely pleasant, supportive and patient. We had read other reviews like we all do and you will always find one or two bad one's, but very happy we ignored those reviews on this occasion. We will use Magic again." - Trip Advisor
  • "We had both our kids at the school during our last skiing week in Val Thorens. We were indeed lucky since the group only contained three kids in total (maximum is 6 which is still very good).The instructor (Marco) was instantly loved by the children and it was obvious they enjoyed themselves. I also took a two hour private session and Marco did an excellent job also there!" - Trip Advisor
