Visitor comments

  • "We went skiing in a large group most of whom were very good skiers. The few of us who were beginners had lessons here and the staff were amazing. The knew exactly how to get your confidence up. As absolute beginners day 1 was how to put on skis - by the end of the week we were up in the mountains making our way down easier blue runs confidently and having fun." - Trip Advisor
  • "I have always used parallel lines for ski tuition for my two young children. I can't praise them enough. When my son was 4 and first time on skis, he was in ski school and the teacher had two assistants to help with the little ones which I thought was great and hadn't seen with any other ski schools. The teachers are excellent and make the lessons so much fun. I will be booking again for next year!" - Trip Advisor
  • "Grown up family had two days refresh with John. Excellent lessons and great company. Enabled us to go off and ski for the rest of the week with confidence and more importantly safely. Highly recommended." - Trip Advisor
