Excellent Customer Service
Excellent customer service, felt that they went out of their way to accommodate our needs, when I left booking ski lessons for 2 children and 1 adult beginner til the last minute. The ski instructor was excellent and the children progressed very well and still had fun and were safe, in what was an incredibly busy half term week of skiing! A shout out to Hugues who saved my holiday!

Our Kids Loved Their Instructor
I’ve booked ski lessons for 5 persons (1 adult and 4 children). The service from Hugues was perfect, clear communication and first time right. Our kids loved their instructor (Thibault) and they had a fantastic week with him.

Their confidence increased beyond our expectations
The Zig Zag team and their Guides have helped organise fantastic touring trips over the last few years for me.
They choose the best locations for fresh powder and know great huts to stay in. The team at head office are very helpful and the Guides safe and challenging.

Without Doubt the Best Instructor I’ve Ever Had
I’d like to say a huge thank you for sorting out lessons for us last week. Lionel is without doubt the best instructor I’ve ever had the pleasure to be taught by; my children think he’s a God ! A great flexible, easygoing and understanding approach. Many, many thanks for all your patience and help. I will be recommending ZigZag to all my friends.

It Was Amazing to See How Much They Progressed
Just wanted to say a very big thank you to Max for the ski lessons he gave our girls (Ellie and Lucy). It was amazing to see how much they progressed. We skied a black run with them and they did it very easy! He is excellent and we wish him all the best for the future. Have a great season and we look forward very much to seeing you all next year.

You Made Our Holiday!
Just a quick note to say a big thank you for the ski lessons. The kids had a brilliant time and loved their instructors. They arrived having never skied before and left better than us! We will definitely be in touch again – you made our holiday!

Just wanted to say thank you for the brilliant service. Thibault was fantastic. He made the lessons fun whilst still teaching the boys lots. The difference in them after just one lesson was amazing. Last year they cried every day going to ski school – this year they didn’t want the lessons to end. Thibault was very professional and accommodating and the boys loved him. He really couldn’t have been more helpful.

She Calls Skiing her Favourite Sport!
I feel the need to send a message of thanks and appreciation to the instructors of ZigZag Ski School. We were in Samoëns for the first time and our daughter Carlotta (9) had lessons from Adrien until Thursday, because on Friday she moved to a next level. She loved it and now she calls skiing her favorite sport!
For her it was also a big help that Adrien speaks a little bit of Dutch. We took lessons from Jérémy and he was great! He gently forced me to get down a slope that I thought I couldn’t do. His firm but fair way combined with some jokes was what we needed. We both really benefited from his lessons: I never thought I would ski through a bumpy halfpipe (and like it too in the end)! Thank you Adrien and Jérémy and perhaps until next year!

Just the Right Balance Between Fun and Learning
I just want to let you know that William really enjoyed his skiing lessons with Greg. He has come away from the experience wanting to come back and do more skiing with Greg next year. It’s a real skill teaching children to ski and we very much appreciated Gregs expertise. For William he achieved just the right balance between fun and learning. Please pass on our good wishes to Greg and we are hope all goes well with for him and his new family.

We were lucky enough to spend a month in Samoëns and used them for my little girl and an adult friend. Small groups, excellent guys and we had experience of 5 instructors-all of them wonderful. Turned my little, shy 4 year old girl into a skier and had great fun along the way. Actually, it was the fun part we were looking for, with empathetic instructors – Zig Zag have it in spades

Calm Professional Manner
Louise, I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you so much for your help today. I must admit I was really beginning to panic when we couldn’t get back to Samoëns to collect the kids from ski school and your help was invaluable. Your calm professional manner reassured us that everything would be ok and I can’t tell you what a huge relief that was. So thank you!!
Amelie is really enjoying her lessons with Sebastien and her confidence is returning after the dreadful experience she had last year with ESF. Thanks so much once again. We’ll definitely be booking with you next year!!

Patient, fun and excellent teachers with impeccable English
We cannot recommend highly enough the ZigZag ski school at Samoens 1600. My daughter (6) learnt more on her first day’s skiing than her brother did in his first week. They were patient, fun and excellent teachers with impeccable english. The older children had a great time and there skiing really improved with Julian. We watched the grumpy ESF haranging their charges and felt relieved that we had decided to use ZigZag – it is worth going to Samoens or Morillon just so you can use them
His Confidence Was Given a Real Boost
The Instructors Were Wonderful
I put my children into snowboarding lessons for 5 days. Both children really enjoyed their lessons and they became much better snowboarders than they ever thought possible. Also the instructors were wonderful. They worked really hard with their students, they were really patient and helpful as well as making the sessions fun.
We were recommended Zigzag and I am pleased to say that I would strongly recommend them for anyone who needs either skiing or snowboarding lessons.
