Ski Lessons & Mountain Experiences

Experience the mountains with a highly-qualified professional to make the most of your snowtime! 

All of us at Meriski are enthusiastic skiers who love the mountains and all that they have to offer.

While we know that you will enjoy your stay in our fabulous chalets, we are aware that it is vital that you make the most of your skiing experience every day of the week; on Piste, off Piste, cross-country, ski touring, snow shoeing & even ski joering (behind horses!).

Our office team are on hand to help you organise Méribel ski lessons for both adults and children to suit your own requirements and preferences.

If you are wanting to extend your mountain experience further, Colin can draw upon his years of living and working in Méribel to provide a local’s insight into the best areas to explore.

Meriski have a whole range of Instructors and Mountain Guides that we can recommend to widen and enhance your enjoyment on the mountains. 

We strongly recommend that you pre-book your ski school to avoid disappointment and that you do so as early as possible during school holidays.

One day with an Instructor/Guide is approximately €375-450 for groups of 4-6 people; incredibly good value for a fulfilling mountain awareness experience.

Expect to pay from approximately €135 for an adult beginners group, €275 for a child group and €110 for a two-hour private lesson.

Recent update from Parrallel Lines (November 2020)

COVID and skiing update

I think it's fair to say that Winter 20/21 looks like being a bit special. With lockdowns currently in place in the UK and France it's impossible to predict with any certainty when skiing will be back to normal.
It is fantastic news that there has been a vaccine breakthrough and also it has been heartening to hear about rapid COVID testing potentially becoming more available for travellers. Perhaps the light at the end of the tunnel is just starting to become visible?
Meribel is scheduled to be open for the season from the 5th December! We are thinking that it is unlikely that this will happen though until COVID infection numbers reduce and current lockdown restrictions are lifted.
We do though think that this will happen, and for the bulk of the season we expect to be skiing and teaching as close to normal as possible. We are expecting February and Easter holidays to be busy!
A great thing about the ski season is it is long! There is plenty time for things to change and we would urge everyone thinking that a ski holiday could be something to enjoy this winter to be ready when travel becomes safer and more available!
Remember bookings this year are backed up with our COVID clause, taking away the risk of COVID cancellations leaving you out of pocket!
All of us at Parallel Lines wish all our friends and clients a safe November and we look forward to seeing you all back on the slopes soon!
