  • "My son had a week of lessons, starting out as a complete beginner, and by the end of the week could comfortably board down, green, blue and red runs, and was already attempting jumps! Thanks very much. I think he has now converted from skier to boarder!" -  Trip Advisor
  • "Have just finished 4 days of one to one tuition with the lovely François and I cannot rate him highly enough. Extremely patient, excellent English, had some good chats on the chair lifts! I started the weekend with no skiing experience at all and ended it happily going down blue runs. François explained everything clearly and corrected mistakes with humour. He knew when to push me and when to let me have a green run just for fun...brilliant and I'm very sad to leave but will return next year. The booking process was extremely easy on the telephone through a local ski hire shop, exceptional English and needing lessons at different times of the day not a problem. They also ensured I had the same instructor each day for continuity." -  Trip Advisor
  • "We had two kids (8 and 5) in different groups with Magic (Yohann and Marco). Both had a brilliant time, progressed really well but most importantly had so much fun. Both instructors quickly worked out our kids and Yohann in particular noticed Arthur needed a little TLC on the first day and was really kind to him. Marco mega encouraging for Cora our daughter and she loved. We also had a couple of private lessons which we equally good." -  Trip Advisor
  • "We booked one week private lessons for the 5 of us with Magic. Our ski instructor Francois was a true gent. On day 2 he had all 5 of us skiing down green runs. Our kids ages are 5, 9 and 12. Francois was very patient and had 30 plus years experience. By the end of the week the whole family were competent skiers. We had so much fun. Would highly recommend Magic for your lessons and in particular Francois." -  Trip Advisor
