What our clients say

  • “Best ski school I've ever a clear mile!”

    I'm just back from a week long technical performance course with parallel lines, they run courses for everyone from complete beginners to experienced skiers. I had a fantastic instructor called Dan and was blown away by his technical knowledge, his eye for detail in peoples ski technique was exceptional and he put things across in a simple, easy to understand way. By the end of the week he had us skiing terrain and conditions that we would never have even contemplated at the start of the week.

  • “Brilliant for any level!!!”

    I have been working out in Meribel for this season from December till April and I had 2 lessons with Cab9 which is are the snowboard lesson group within Parallel Lines. I had an awesome French instructor called Tony who is amazing and so easy to learn with. I progressed so much with a private lesson with him for 2 other half couldn't believe how good I was!!!

  • “Lee was an excellent instructor”

    “Everything was excellent. I took snowboarding lessons, I couldn’t stand up at the start of the week and could link turns by the end, couldn’t ask for more! Lee was an excellent instructor, easy to get on with and has some excellent stories to boot.”

  • “Excellent team”

    Just returned from Meribel & snowboarding lessons from Cab 9 for myself & ski lessons for my 4 year old daughter with Parallel Lines & can't praise them enough. Was confident that my daughter was in safe hands with Dan & his team as she disappeared up the mountain everyday & returned with a big smile on her face. I had previously snowboarded a number of years ago but never felt confident in my ability but with excellent direction from Jono I felt it 'clicked' & felt like I progressed much more than previously after a week of lessons.

  • “Best ski school in Meribel”

    This is the second year we have used Parallel Lines and they really are the best ski school in Meribel. They never disappoint, they completely 'get' kids. I have two boys who adored both David and Ed their instructors. They skied the whole three valleys in a fun yet safe environment and boy did they learn to ski well!

  • “Great lesson again”

    Recently had a private lesson with Dan, last one a year or so again. Although we have been skiing for many years now there is always the need improve in certain areas and correct any bad habits. Dan was excellent again, he really looks at the way you ski and teaches one in a very relaxed but very succesful manner. He pushed us but within our limits and really felt the benefit. Thanks Dan, we will be back.

  • “Fantastic kids ski school”

    We met her ski instucter Paul on the first day and the 2 other little girls in her class and I spent the first couple of hours with them to make sure she was ok. Paul had a great rapport with the kids really quickly and my daughter was soon going down green runs and having a ball. Paul encourage her and gave her the confidence she needed to try and no be afraid of falling over!
