“Brilliant Skiing Lessons in Meribel”

My wife and kids had a couple of 2 hour lessons with Filippo and they all found it more beneficial than any lessons they have had in the past. He was great with the kids and they really warmed to him. Brilliant and effective teaching methods - my wife improved considerably in just two days. Highly recommended.

Andy W

We had a lesson as a family of 5 together with an instructor on our first day. Then one of my children went into one of their groups every morning. The instructors and the reception team seemed very professional, friendly, skilled and we have used other ski companies in the past, which have been good but I would definitely recommend Supreme. They were fantastic!

Samantha J

I spent a week having lessons in an adult class taught by the brilliant Max Linney: he's a fantastic teacher, super relaxed and easy going but really good at making you feel comfortable and confident and tailoring his instructions to each person's ability and confidence level. I really enjoyed my classes with him and its great that Supreme ensure the class size is small.

Jennifer O

We had a set of private group lessons which suited our group of six beginners really well. Rachel was a brilliant instructor, teaching us better technique in ways which we could understand and continue to practice on our own. She was also great at getting our confidence back if either of us had a wobble. I would thoroughly recommend lessons with Supreme.

Hay C

We had such a wonderful week in Morzine! We initially booked a lesson every other day but ended up having a lesson everyday of the week we were there as we enjoyed them so much. Nate, our instructor was fantastic and we both really feel our skiing has vastly improved!

Sarah H

Supreme is most definitely to be highly recommended to everyone. The instructors are extremely professional, friendly and talented (with good communication at all times re lesson schedules/ weather changes etc) and are able to adapt to all abilities with ease.

John S

I cannot recommend Supreme Ski School enough! Fantastic service, very helpful, and the most brilliant ski instructor! Daniele introduced both my children to the world of skiing and in less than a week, both of them were nailing blue runs and loving every minute of their holiday. I will definitely be using Supreme Ski again.

Fern S

My instructor Daniele was fantastic. He was a very experience Italian skier who spoke excellent English. He asked me where I’d skied before and for how long, and made sure to find out exactly what I wanted to improve. He understood that I was a nervous skier and gave really good tips on how to improve my technique. By the end of my lesson I was parallel skiing down blue slopes with ease.

Hi, my name is Enrica. I’m an Italian ski instructor, I was born and raised in Piemonte. I learnt to ski at the age of 4 in a very small resort called Frabosa Soprana, where I also trained in the local ski club until I became a ski instructor. After that I felt much more freedom in exploring the mountains and enjoying skiing all over the world. Which brought me ultimately to Courchevel. My favorite slope over there is probably Biolley, it’s nice and wide and “hilly” and I can have fun carving it all out. My favorite tip is to keep the eyes up, and look at the direction you’re going. That also helps you enjoy the mountains and the nature around you, which is my favorite part of skiing.

I’m from a small town in the Italian Alps, very close to the border with Switzerland. I don’t remember when I started skiing, I just know that I always did it, I started with my dad in the ski resort close to home when I was 3. From the age of five I joined the local ski club and I’ve been racing till I was seventeen. After that I trained to be a ski instructor and in 2017 I was fully qualified to teach. I’m so happy to be in the 3 valleys and I love Courchevel, when I ski on my own I always like to go to the vizelle gondola, enjoy the view and ski down Saulire slope. Skiing it’s a part of me, I love the feeling that I have when I’m floating on the powder snow and when I’m carving on the slopes. But I also like to stop for a drink and appreciate the incredible landscape that I have around me. So make sure your boots are comfy, enjoy your days on the ski and try to make the best of it.

I grew up in the Italian Apennines, very close to a ski resort on the Gran Sasso Mountain range. I took up skiing at the age of 4 thanks to my parents who have always been into skiing. My first time skiing was with my father in 1987, we were on a steep icy slope behind the house, which now looks absolutely flat. Following on, I trained and gained experience in Alto Adige and had numerous competitive successes in central Italy. In 2005 I became a full certified Italian ski instructor and I have been teaching professionally ever since. I worked in the Italian Alps for ten years, predominantly in Sestriere. In 2012 I spent two summers in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia, where I worked as a ski instructor as well. In 2015 I moved to France where I started to work for British Ski Schools. In 2018 I have finally joined Supreme!!! FAVORITE PISTE IN RESORT There are so many good runs in Courchevel, my favorite one is actually a blue run from the top of Plantrey chairlift to La Tania where you can ski through the woods. It is quite a long run, the snow it is always good and it is never too busy. That is where I would normally head to first if we get a foggy day. TOP TIP Never forget that every expert was once a beginner. Dream big and start now! WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF SKING First of all, being surrounded by mountains is just absolutely breath taking. Skiing itself, is a great feeling of freedom which feels like dancing to me. Finally, stepping inside a cozy rustic chalet at the end of a long day, drinking good wine and enjoying yummy food is also my favorite part of skiing.

I grew up in a small village in the Italian Alps and I started skiing when I was 3 years old. After 12 years of ski club and races I finally became a ski instructor 5 years ago. The thing I like the most about my job is seeing my clients happy and satisfied, it’s a great sport that can give a lot of wonderful feelings and unforgettable memories, and that is what I work for. I love everything about skiing especially the feeling of freedom and joy I get every time I have the chance of being between the mountains. Off piste and powder are what I love the most. Tip: I always find a way to give you the experience you are looking for.

My favourite piste is Suisses, a fun black run in Courchevel 1850. My top tip to give clients is to not overthink what they have to do. It’s important to be relaxed to enjoy skiing as much as possible. My favourite part of skiing is being outdoors most of the day with beautiful surroundings.

I grew up in a little town on lake Garda, the largest in Italy, called Padenghe sul Garda, in the north of Italy. I started skiing in the Dolomites, my father taught to me how to ski and passed down to me the passion. I was a racer before becoming an instructor, now I spend a lot of my time doing freeskiing and freestyle. My favorite piste in Meribel is La Face. The best advice I can give is to always take care of yourself and the other people when you’re on slopes. I love skiing in the deep snow, it feels like skiing on the clouds.

I come from Varese but since I finished high school I’ve been living in Bormio and still now I’m living there. One of the best places of Italian Alps. I started skiing in Bormio. I started skiing when I was 3 years old with my grandfather, and then he passed the baton to my father, who has been following me until the end of my racing path. I started racing in 2013 when I was 13, and I ended my career in 2022. I’ve been spending all these years travelling around the Alps and even more far away. One of the most comprehensive experience have been the University Games in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. I also had the privilege to grow up technically and emotionally and now that I quit racing I understand the reason why I’ve been racing for all these years. My favourite piste is Combe du Vallon. You won’t have a bad day until you are on snow. It can sound ordinary but the best part of skiing is the first run in the early morning, with the sound of crunchy snow under the feet and no people around you. It feels like doing yoga four the soul.
