Perfect at all ages and abilities. Just perfect. My 12 year old daughter and I booked Sylvain as a ski guide and instructor this Easter and I have to say, it was the best skiing we have had! Sylvain was incredibly inspirational and had a true knack for teaching. The pace he set was hard but realistic and recognised instantly what needed work and taught us what we needed to learn in a most amenable way. He was the consummate professional who instantly put us both at ease. Our skiing came on leaps and bounds and we would definitely book Sylvain again, not only for his ski tuition but for his knowledge of his environment.

We had a 2 hour lesson with Sylvain for me and my two kids aged 12 and 10. It was a superb lesson and we all learned loads even though we all had different levels of experience. In particular, he was amazing with my very nervous daughter who was in tears and not wanting to ski before the start of the lesson. He managed to increase her confidence in a way that completely changed the rest of the ski trip for the whole family. We will definitely use Sylvain again next time we are in the Trois Vallees.

Sylvain was a brilliant ski guide. We travelled all over the 3 Valleys to new places in our time with him. He pushed us just the right amount to try new and exciting things, managing our varied ski abilities excellently. We could not have hope for more. Thank you Sylvain.

Excellent instructor, communicator (perfect English) and very patient with complete beginners. Came prepared (shared his water with us) and wasn't loitering (he always walked up the snowbelt). By the end of our 2 hours I was comfortably back side turning down a slope and also attempted a few front side turns. He also adjusted the angle of the board's buckles for me. Highly recommended.

The best instructor I’ve ever had. I went to Val Thorens hoping to be able to tackle blues and by the third day with Sylvain found myself able to confidently do reds and even part of a black! He brought my group all across the 3 valleys including a bit of off piste which was amazing. Sylvain knows all the hidden spots and amazing slopes l. Definitely worth it!! Cheers Sylvain!!

Sylvain was nothing short of excellent! Took a group of first time skiers and brought us on a fantastic tour of the 3 valleys! Brought us all from learning to put on the skis to tackling loads of brilliant slopes across the valleys! Felt extremely safe the whole time, yet learned a tonne!! 5 stars!! Thanks Sylvain!!

Excellent instructor for all levels. Gives great tips & brought us on some excellent routes and it was great fun!! I started out as a beginner on our first day and was doing red slopes by the end of the second day. Our tour of Meribel with Sylvain on the 3rd day was a fantastic experience seeing all of the amazing landscape. Could not recommend highly enough!!

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
