Ski School - Meribel 2016-2017

MAGIC IN MOTION INTERNATIONAL SKI SCHOOL

Meeting Point: La Chaudanne, the central lift station in Meribel

With over 23 years of experience, Magic in Motion is one of the best valued ski schools in the Three Valleys.  Because of the small class sizes and their excellent reputation for a fun teaching style, they become fully booked very quickly and we recommend booking your place as early as possible particularly for peak school holiday weeks.  Their highly qualified ski and snowboard instructors coach a range of lessons to suit all tastes and abilities, including group lessons, off piste, children and snowboard including freestyle.

Classes have a minimum number of people necessary before the lesson can operate – so if there are not enough people subscribed then the ski school may adjust the lessons.  They also guarantee a maximum number of people for each class to ensure the quality of teaching.

KIDS FUN FACTORY – 6 TO 9, 10 TO 13 AND 14 TO 17  YEARS OLD CHILDREN, MIN 4 AND MAX 8 CHILDREN

Children’s group lessons are called “Fun Factory” and are based on exactly that principle – teaching while having a lot of fun.  The groups are split into different age ranges - 6 to 9 year olds, 10 to 13 and 14 to 17 to allow for different learning styles and speeds.  Lessons operate at all levels from beginner (0) to level 6.  The sessions have varied times to allow a lot of tuition for the kids but still some time for the families to ski together.

On the full day, the kids have lunch with the instructor in a mountain restaurant which is included in the price of the lessons.  On the final day there is a mountain treasure hunt and a “mouse chase” for the younger children and a multi fun Olympics for the older children, including a 30m timed run, special free-style and to top it off a ski jump onto their big bouncy air bag. Medals are included in the price of lessons.

Please note - they really want to offer Kids Fun Factory all season long, however due to the weeks outside of the school holidays being quieter, they have reduced the programmer’s hours so there is only one full day on Thursdays, and Tuesday is a half-day.  In this way they can offer a cheaper option at a greater value.

CHILDREN – “LITTLE MICE” – 4 AND 5 YEARS

“Little Mice” groups are aimed at 4 and 5 year olds at levels 0 to 2 or Little Mousy to Mousy levels.  The groups are run with a maximum of 6 and a minimum of 3 children.  Whether it’s their first time on skis or whether they are snow ploughing demons, this class will work on the basics in a fun and safe environment.  Because it can be very cold first thing in the morning, they also offer the later lesson when the snow is a bit softer, making learning easier.  Please don’t forget their helmets, sun cream, sun glasses and warm clothes!  The school has helmet covers to easily identify their children.

Magic in Motion has its own private garden situated at the top of the Altiport slope, with a little carpet escalator where all beginners can learn to ski in a safe environment.

SNOWBOARD GROUPS - MAXIMUM 5, MINIMUM 2

Magic Snowboard lessons offer intensive tuition of mini groups of 2-5 boarders with video feedback to really help improve your technique.  All levels are catered for from complete beginners to advanced boarders.  The groups run in the afternoon when the snow is softer, therefore easier for those inevitable tumbles, making it safer.  We always recommend wearing helmets and body armor.  Snowboarding is available all season for adults and for children during peak weeks only.

PRIVATE INSTRUCTORS

Private lessons are available for all disciplines, all levels and all ages!  Please let us know your level and where possible a little about you such as your objectives for the lessons and your age so the ski school can allocate the most appropriate instructor.  If you require off-piste or speed riding, you must let us know so the ski school can allocate one of their specialist instructors.

Adults and young children cannot share lessons as the teaching styles are very different and it is not productive to teach them together.  Lesson prices are for the group specified – so for either one or two people for all lessons except for the full day lesson which covers more people.  Additional people can be added to the lesson by paying the extra person price for the lesson.

MAGIC IN MOTION INTERNATIONAL SKI SCHOOL

From nervous beginner to expert powder hounds, Magic in Motion have the perfect experience for everyone.  Lessons are available in all disciplines – ski, snowboard, cross-country ski, snow-shoeing, snowblades, freestyle, off-piste ….  Please specify when booking off-piste for special equipment and the most suitable instructor.
