Alpine Infusion has its own portfolio of private ski instructors who are available to book in advance, and Meribel and Courchevel have a wide selection of ski schools for skiers and snowboarders of every level and all age groups. We strongly recommend that you book lessons in advance of your holiday as they are very popular and often have few remaining places available on arrival in resort. This is particularly essential over the school and peak holiday periods.

Magic in Motion Snowsports Academy

Group Lessons with Magic in Motion Snowsports Academy

Delighting clients since 1992, Magic is an independent school owned and run by an Anglo-French team. Their group lessons are conducted in English and are small to ensure optimal attention and motivation. Helmet covers are provided to easily identify children (colour coded by level) and children’s groups are split not only by level, but also by age. For the Little Ones (aged 4-5), they have the safe and secure ‘Magic Garden’ with its own private Magic Carpet (travelator lift) and a chalet with music. There is also a qualified teaching assistant present to assist the instructor for the first few days.

They are proud that their Kids Fun Factory is probably the best-loved product for children: combining 3 or 4 long mornings plus 2 full days with lunch in a mountain restaurant (included in the price), a treasure hunt, timed runs, freestyle and jumps on a bouncy big air bag. Aspiring champions will love the Race Academy where one of the trainers competed in the 2010 Olympics.
