Lessons in Meribel

There are some excellent ski school options in Meribel. We work very closely with our ski schools to make sure that there are programmes to suit all of our guests.
We partner with three ski schools in Meribel - Magic Academy, The ESF (French Ski School) and Parallel Lines.

Magic Academy - offers small classes with up to 8 pupils per class. Tuition is in English and we have found the style of tuition from this outfit to be perfect for children (or adults) who are learning to ski.

ESF - group lessons are in English, but may be mixed with French speaking skiers. The class size is usually 10-12 people, and we find they are more suited to adults.

Parallel Lines - From their base in Meribel, and run by people who know Meribel inside out, they have built a top-level team of skiers and specialist snowboarders, committed to offering the excellent levels of service, from first contact to final turns.

New Generation - offers small classes and clinics with up to 8 pupils per class. Tuition is in English and we have had great feedback on their teaching style.

Cab 9 is Meribel’s only dedicated snowboard school with a small team of highly experienced snowboard instructors. They offer second-to-none lessons in all aspects of snowboarding throughout the 3 Valleys.

Our partner ski schools also offer private lesson options – just talk to one of our reservations team or your holiday coordinator who can advise you on the best options to suit you.

To ensure availability, it is essential to pre-book both group and private lessons.
