Our two children aged 16 and 7 were complete beginners. Alberto was absolutely fantastic, very upbeat and enthusiastic, and the children had a brilliant time. By day 2 we were skiing green runs as a family and by day 3 they were starting to ski with parallel skis. Alberto did a great job of making sure their first time on the slopes was entirely positive and we’ve now booked another family ski holiday as a result. Really highly recommended.

I cannot rate The Snow School more highly! Flexible, helpful, good long lessons and really easy to book and adjust requirements and great communication; a genuinely brilliant experience. Paul is an outstanding instructor, who took a very nervous inexperienced teenaged skier with a few years off the slopes, rebuilt his confidence and made him very happy. In 40 years of skiing I haven't had a better ski school experience. We would recommend Paul and The Snow School in the strongest terms and will definitely use them again. Thank you so much.

We had private lessons from Piero in Meribel last April. A lovely guy with tons of skiing experience, as well as an instructor as on a personal and competitive level. He was very easy going, had great social skills and explained all tasks and excersises really clearly. He was aiming at the things we wanted to improve on, but also suggested things by looking at our skiing techniques and “habits”. In an afternoon we learned so much! Not only how to improve our technique, but also how to adapt it to the snow conditions on the pistes. Being there late in the season and temperatures rising, the sun had quite an influence on the quality snow. I would highly recommend The Snow School and the experience of their instructors. The whole proces of enquiring, booking and the actual lesson went smooth and very pleasant. Thank you to Paul and his team!

I highly recommend The Snow School. We went to Meribel on a casual company ski trip. 4 of us took lessons with Alberto (ski) and Theo (snowboarding), both of them were very professional, friendly, super kind to us, and always on time!
As I was taking ski lessons I spent most of the time with Alberto, our level was a beginner and we couldn't have had a better instructor than him!
He took time to teach us the basic things, without rushing too much or overwhelming us, so we could build our confidence. Then when he saw everyone's progression was teaching us more things that we could incorporate. By the end of the second day, I could slide down the green slopes confidently putting my skis in parallel and stopping easily. He has so much knowledge that he gives you very specific tips that make all the difference!
Alberto loves so much what he does, that he passes you on the good energy and makes you feel engaged!

Thank you guys!!! :)

Paul at The Snow School has taught my two children in private lessons for the last week in Courchevel. I have two older children who have had many ski lessons, but Paul was another league. My children were so excited to meet him every morning. He picked them up from our hotel and gave them lunch which allowed us to ski all day, and then brought them back to the hotel at 4.30. He had a really good feel for when they needed a hot chocolate stop so that they constantly enjoyed the lessons. I felt that the children were completely safe with Paul at all times. Paul also took photos and videos of the children through the day so we could see their progress and also so we could share with friends and family. Although more expensive than ESF group lessons, I feel that in terms of progress one week with Paul was the equivalent of 3 weeks in ESF ski school. It felt like an investment in good technique and progress for the children. I know he teaches adults as well. I really couldn’t recommend him enough, and I will certainly use him again.

We’ve skied for three days with Alberto. And I speak for all of us when I say that it’s was a fantastic three sessions and I cannot recommend Alberto higher. We have been skiing as a family for 5 years and I haven’t had a better coach than this, we have learnt so much in these three days and we will definitely come back to do it again.

After a two year hiatus, great to be back skiing in the 3V, and the first thing my son asked me was "will I have lessons with Paul again!"

The good news was it was arranged and again Theo not only had a great time, but the improvement is clear.

I would never hesitate in recommending the Snow School, and will be a returning customer again next year

We had a very fun week of daily 3-hour private lessons (9-12) with Alberto Giovanni from Snow School. Alberto was the perfect ski mentor for the four of us (three 20 yr olds and mum), three of which had never been skiing before! Alberto transformed our mindset of 'skiing' from something that was initially very daunting into something exciting and fun. He does this by teaching you via a highly intuitive step by step learning process. The lessons are tailored to your pace no matter how fast or slow you want to learn - you get out of the session whatever you want to. If for example, you are feeling a bit peckish, Alberto will adjust the route and you can stop for a coffee break.

By the end of the week, my confidence and ability to ski increased dramatically. Alberto even said that if the conditions were better we could have been taken on a red slope for the first time! Which is amazing progress for 1 week of lessons.

If you are to book lessons in Meribel, be sure to request Snow School and specifically Alberto. Alberto is an absolute legend, it was a blast to share the slopes with him for our first time skiing! Thank you for making our holiday!

Excellent ski school for my 2 children (10 & 7)

We deliberately chose the Snow School for my 2 children as they had smaller groups than most of the others in Meribel which we knew would suit our kids better and help them advance after not being able to ski for 3 years due to Covid. What a fantastic setup - Giorgio looked after our kids brilliantly and kept them entertained! There were only 3 in their group so they got loads of tuition and by the end of the week were confidently doing some jumps and riding down tracks between the trees in the forest!

Would definitely recommend - thank you again.
