SNOWBOARD LESSONS & SPECIAL GROUPS FOR TEENAGERS

For teenagers who want to ski in a fun atmosphere with a group of the same age - same prices and time as the children's group lessons.  For the snowboard lessons, the same times and prices apply as the adult group ski lessons.

MAGIC IN MOTION INTERNATIONAL SKI SCHOOL

MEETING POINT: In the centre of Val Thorens, at Place the Caron

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.  As a rule, a min of 3 people is required to run any group lesson.

HIGH SEASON DATES

Magic in Motion has different options and prices during season according to high or low season dates - check if your holiday falls within one of the high season weeks shown below:
