    Would highly recommend Marmalade
    So easy to book with lots of information. Our instructor Nick was really Knowledgeable about the different slopes, he also kept things simple and easy to understand which was great for us beginners. We were so pleased to be able to ski some green runs with amazing views high up in the mountains. Especially great as complete beginners. We would definitely recommend Marmalade and would use them if we visited again..

    The guides - Martin, Hugo, Sarah - have all been first class. They are friendly, personable, easy to talk to and hugely knowledgeable. Whether you are spending a day on or off piste, they know their stuff, they prioritise safety and know the whole resort like the back of their hand. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

    Best Ski Day!
    I had one of the best skiing I've had in a long time. It was my first off peak experience. From booking, to the contact pre-lesson and the lesson itself, booking with Marmalade was fantastic. Connie contacted me the day before the lesson to let me know the instructor (Quentin)'s details, and some of my friends then said they wanted to book a lesson too. Connie was straight on the case and found some lessons for my friends short notice, great service. The lesson itself was great - Quentin in a fantastic instructor and quickly got me more confident on off-piste terrain, which I was totally unfamiliar with. I found the lesson really constructive and Quentin was professional, friendly and a great teacher! One of the best days skiing I've had in years. My friends also said they had great lessons, so wonderful all round. Highly recommend Marmalade :)

We have just returned back from our first ever skiing trip with our family. My daughters were 7 and 8 and prior to going skiing had 6 hours of lessons at the Snow Centre in the UK. They were at a reasonable level, however this was their first skiing on the real stuff.

Millie their instructor was AMAZING!! She quickly got a handle on all of their personalities (3 children) and how to deal with each of them. She captured their engagement which meant they couldn't wait to see her very morning for the 3 hour lesson. She pushed them and by the end of the week they were skiing down REDS!!!! Millie also took lots of photos and videos so we could see them progress during the week.

I am so grateful for Millie as they are now super excited about our trip next year and they are hoping that Millie will still be there. Fingers crossed!

I highly recommend Marmalade as they were super helpful when booking and also arranging a last minute skiing lesson for myself with Rupert..... who again was a great instructor.

Can't wait to book up with Marmalade for next year!

It is great as well that you had a smooth experience with us and enjoyed a lesson with Rupert :-) Thank you again for your kind words, We look forward to seeing you next year!

Rupert was amazing with our 3 x kids. My 6 year old daughter said after the trip that Rupert made everything easy, and that he made the adventure bigger every day!! My 9 year old son said he loves skiing! Bear in mind our kids had never been on a ski slope before so they went from zero to snowploughing down Green runs unaided on day 3 😊 and this is all attributed to Rupert’s style of teaching. Rupert just made it enjoyable from start to finish, will always be grateful for his positive start to our little ones discovery into skiing 😊

We booked a 4 hour lesson as a family of 5.

The day we booked turned out to be rainy/windy/snowy with poor visibility and sticky snow - so many challenging conditions. Our instructor Martina was great. She was positive throughout and gave us all individual tips on what to work on. Martina kept everyone’s interest up and we really enjoyed the lesson.

The office staff who we dealt with to book the lesson were friendly and efficient.

Millie was a superb instructor for our beginner six-year-old daughter. She was a natural with her, and after just three mornings, our daughter was skiing confidently and having fun. Marmalade have a very flexible approach, and we loved that Millie could pick up from our chalet or meet us on the mountain. She also sorted out a problem with our ski pass on day 2 with no fuss. She was a lovely instructor and we couldn't believe how our daughter progressed in such a short time. Connie in the office was also very good, quick to respond and it was easy to book. Price-wise, Marmalade are about the average for private instruction in Meribel. It's more than group lessons for children but well worth it because my daughter got the hang so quickly. They also specialise in giving a tailored service eg picking up from the chalet and flexing on start time if you heed to organise ski hire first thing.

This is the best ski School we have used in Meribel. The customer service is second to none. They replied quickly and were so helpful answering any question we asked. Our instructor Jojo was British and this made a huge difference to our children, not having a language barrier. They described her as “amazing, she was friendly easy to talk to and broke the instructions down one by one”. They thoroughly enjoyed their lesson and when it ended they felt like they’d accomplished so much and were really happy.

Although not the cheapest ski school in the mountains, Marmalade is simply the best. The best instructors, the best attitude and gets the best skiing improvement from its clients - seriously. My skiing took another step change following some private lessons from Millie early this season. Great fun and with a talent to impart new techniques with different exercises and drills, my confidence, ability and control down the mountain hugely improved. Highly recommended.

My two kids 8 and 10 spent a week with Marmalade. Our kids were already pretty good skiers but Marmalade absolutely elevated their sking. We are already planning our return for next year - 2022 hoping for a return to semi normal.....

Epic week! We had Greg (legend) every morning for 3 teenagers and their dodgy-knee'd mother. He was fun, flexible and of course an excellent teacher for both skiing and snowboarding. Couldn't recommend more highly - the kids improved massively and loved every minute. Thanks Marmalade (especially Greg) - we'll be back!
