Marino was very good at communicating and was relaxed and friendly. He's the best ski teacher I've ever used. He was very patient and and gave us lots of useful tips and helpful exercises to demonstrate what he was explaining and to help us practice. I would definitely recommend Marino and would love to have some lessons with him next year if he is still at the Grand Massif!

Marino was friendly and supportive and his feedback was really helpful. He inspired confidence in what he was teaching me and my confidence about skiing. Afterwards I felt enthusiastic about my skiing and wanted to carry it on and take it further even in conditions that were difficult.

A great afternoon’s skiing, 2-5. He assessed your capabilities and then upped the challenge to match but always giving little pointers. We spent the second half of the afternoon on some great off piste runs which were a joy. By the end it was a case of Marino you choose, because each run was getting better and better. I hope Marino enjoyed those runs as much as I did.

Marino was kind and challenging … I learned a lot from him. I think I was difficult as I was very very nervous, but he remained patient and I made progress. I would highly recommend him. Helen

Marino was excellent. The best instructor I have had. My five sessions had been originally booked for my husband, Ben, but when he wasn't able to get to the slopes, I took the lesson. When you have already been skiing for a while and want to improve, it's hard to change your habits. Marino focused on trying to help me get in the right position and rhythm by incremental changes. I didn't have to do lots of weird exercises or try to fix everything at the same time (my past experience with instruction). I also always got the clarity which movements were non-negotiable and where I could give myself a break and try when I am more confident. On a few things, it felt like a lightbulb moment. It finally clicked. I still need to embed what I learned, but I feel a lot more confident about trying. I also used one slot for my daughter to get her finally out of snow plough (something we hadn't manage before). Again, Marino's magic worked there. One afternoon and now she is now committed to trying systematically. Again, the trick was Marino showing her how she can get herself in the right position by trying a few things. If we are back in Samoens, we are definitely going to take more lessons from Marino. Hopefully, my husband will be able to join too.

What a superb instructor, I can only say that I wish I had more time. I enjoy skiing with Marino and I'm hooked on the progress. I had planned to just brush up my skills, yet without realising Marino gave me skills and the confidence to use them that continue today.

My kids spent a week skiing with Marino and now they keep talking about skiing and their hero Marino. They had such a good time with Marino. And further to that, I'm now the one that needs lessons. The kids are skiing so well, I cant believe it, in just a week.

FAQs
Where is the meeting point?

You can arrange the meeting point with your chosen instructor by using the Maison Sport messaging system. We recommend agreeing this before you book your lessons, but it can always be arranged at a later date. The instructor should be able to suggest somewhere that is convenient for you both.

What qualifications do the instructors have?

All instructors listed on Maison Sport have been verified by their nation's governing body, be it the French Government's Department of Sport, Swiss Ski Federation or The Italian Winter Sports Federation, so you can rest assured you will be in safe hands when you’re on the slopes.

How many people can take part in the lesson?

Generally no more than 8 people, each instructor has their own policy for this, so it is best to just double check with them by sending a message. Most instructors won't charge extra if there is more than 1 person taking part in the lesson, but always best to check with them before booking.s
