  • "I would highly, highly recommend this ski school for all ages, my son and husband took snowboarding lessons and I took ski lessons. We had three instructors in total and they were absolutely fantastic. I would like to personally recommend Clare-Anne, she was so encouraging, skilful and super kind - it made my holiday!" - Trip Advisor
  • "This was my third ski holiday. The primary problem was my confidence. François was superb. Not only was he a great instructor he brought my confidence on leaps and bounds. Highly recommended" - Trip Advisor
  • "We have been using Magic for the last ten years. You may wonder why we still have an instructor after so long, well my wife is a nervous skier and having an instructor/guide takes away all the anxiety, resulting in a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. We also have family members that are new to skiing. Carol in the office is very helpful when we book our sessions and our instructor/guide Sandie is a real saint. I wouldn't go anywhere else now." - Trip Advisor
