Pippa aged 6 had two morning lessons with Sergio this week. She had a lot of fun and we were truly not expecting to be able to ski as a family on day three of our holiday. Booked another lesson for the coming week. ZigZag are an excellent company!

Fantastic company, very quick getting back to me via email with my queries. Booked one day private ski lesson for myself and snow board lesson for my son aged 13. I am a very nervous skier but determined not to give up. My tutor (who was on holiday from his job in Italy) was very patient and a great listener. He would correct my movements, half way down the slopes, help me off the chairlifts basically he has given me back my confidence I had lost.
The lady who taught my son give him loads of technical advice which he had never been shown, didn’t take him on long runs but spent time getting movements correct. I have never experience this with a ski school before as they have always felt rushed to get speed and harder slopes.
All in all a very professional ski school with kind tutors.

Cannot say enough how impressed I was with this ski school. Not only did they immediately respond to all of my inquiries and helped me book my kids in the proper class. The school itself exceeded my expectations. The instructors were amazing, kind, patient, and took both of my kids up levels in days with skiing. They truly conformed to everyone's needs and the kids were always so happy. My son said it best "I want Marilyan to be my ski teacher for the rest of my life".

We just wanted to say a massive thank you to Theo for our private lesson last Tues and to let you know how impressed we were with his ability to teach in a way that made sense to each skier.

We've had lessons over the years with many different instructors, but Theo is definitely the best in terms of instruction, really understanding his clients, speaking in terms that helps them put theory into practice and getting the best out of them.

I can't praise Theo highly enough and would recommend him to anyone!

Our 4 year old daughter had her first taste of skiing with Marilsa from ZigZag ski school.She had an amazing 5 days and achieved what we wanted he too, namely to enjoy skiing and she wants to ski again. She went from never having been on skis before to doing green runs, drag lifts and chairlifts. Marilisa was lovely and looked after her six little skiers with ease. Can thoroughly recommend them.

I was really lucky and was able to book a lesson for the next day on the 'Night Ski'. It had been really busy on the slopes during the day and the evening was lovely, so much quieter and relaxing. How skiing used to be before you had to do school holidays! Regis was amazing as I had not been skiing for 16 years and he got my confidence bace really quickly and helped me with my dismounts from the chair lift. Wish I had been able to book a snowboarding lesson for my son as the whole experience is fabulous and a reasonable price - thank you Regis. I did the Marvel - not to your standards, but I did it!

Amazing 3 days guided off-piste. “Tof” managed to find us new lines everyday despite there being no new snowfall for over a week! Some of the couloirs were absurdly steep and narrow but Tof gave us the confidence to push our limits. A day-trip to Chamonix to ski the Vallee Blanche was unforgettable. I’ll be back.

Many thanks to ZigZag instructor Marilisa for teaching our 3-year-old how to ski. He is having a great experience - Marilisa is encouraging, kind and patient and is clearly wonderful with small children. We are amazed at how competently he can ski down the nursery piste after just a few sessions. Most importantly, he’s really enjoying his lessons and it’s great for us to see that he is in safe hands.

Zigzag ski is fantastic. They are quick to respond to email questions and phone. I had a private Nordic ski lesson with Guy and he was great!!! I went to a trail in the middle of the woods. Not touristic at all - see pictures attached. Great!

My 7 year old daughter did the week long ski school with Vincent and she loved it. Two of the days it was pouring rain and she was still excited to go. What a great company. And their recommendation for Xtreme Glisser for rentals was a great suggestion as well. Five stars!!

Once again thank the whole team at Zigzag for an amazing service (this is our 3rd season)... our children with Sergio and Claude have had a wonderful season, both with the weekly Saturday lessons but also a concentrated week of lessons in March. The instructors are of the highest calibre, both in terms of instruction but also their attention to / and care of the care of the children. We are absolutely committed to Zigzag and Samoëns, for many many seasons to come.
