I moved to the alps at age 17 and fell in love with the mountains. I’m now an ISIA instructor within the BASI system.
For me, skiing is more than a job - it’s my entire life. I eat, sleep and breathe it! Following on from 4 years of back-to-back winters; teaching, coordinating, and coaching in Italy, Japan, and Australia - I’ve settled in Switzerland and now live here year-round.
I can’t wait to show you my home and help to improve your skiing!
Our lessons together will be fully tailored to meet your specific goals. I always aim to deliver safe, fun and enjoyable lessons, with a positive environment to help you learn!
Beyond instructing. We booked Casey as a recommendation through a friend who had previously skied with her in Niseko. While we expected someone friendly, professional, a competent skier who knew the area, what we received was just so much more than that. Casey knows Zermatt like the back of her hand, not only the way of the land but the snow conditions, the restaurants(on mountain and in town), the taxis, the activities, the shopping, the sledging - absolutely everything. There was no task too difficult but more so no task that phased her at all "no worries" and a smile as she rearranged our itinerary for the 100th time. As an example she looked at our lunch plans the evening before we arrived and pointed out that some would be better at the end of the trip because of beginners in the party - she then went on to rearrange all of them to suit, no mean feat in the middle of half term! We travelled as a group of 25 and had a few other instructors from other schools, Casey quickly became our go to for anything we needed way beyond the call of duty of ski teaching, replying in minutes. Her tips as she guided us around the mountain were so incredibly helpful, my wife skied slopes she would never have considered before and we both improved so much! She took some great photos of the group and also showed us how our skiing was progressing with videos each day. I could go on, but ultimately I couldn't recommend Casey more highly and I'm sure she will shy at this review but it has to be said, if you're not skiing in Zermatt with her, you're missing out! Thanks again. Christopher, Allison and all the family.
We booked 2 full days at the beginning of our holiday with Casey from PDS. As a couple of 40 somethings with our kids off on a school trip we really wanted to experience all of Zermatt and we did just that. We skied new trails everyday that worked for our advancing technique and progressed both in our skiing and around the mountain! We managed to squeeze into Chezvrony and Zumzee and had some incredible regional food and finished up each day at different spots in town. The entire experience was seamless from start to finish whether it be being taken to the quieter areas of the mountain to learn to carve or going to the liveliest apres spots. Zermatt is a huge ski area and massive town, we were so glad to have a personal guide for the first 2 days and to have whatsapp help whenever we needed!! We only booked 2 days but managed to extend the lessons with another PDS instructor who was also very helpful with our technique and knowledge of Zermatt. A huge thanks to Casey and her team for making our holiday a cut above the rest! We've already pencilled in for next year.
A knowledgeable mountain guide, an expert skier, friendly company, an outstanding teacher - in whatever order Casey gets 5 stars on every account. Her generous support extended for days beyond the end of the lesson with ongoing WhatsApp communication be it trail guidance or restaurant recommendations. The pandemic has kept my son and me off the slopes for two years and her acute eye and clear instruction made the difference with tips that completely changed the game and set us up for a great week. Whether you are a novice beginner or a seasoned skier Casey’s patient expertise is not to be missed. Thanks Casey!
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.
Any instructor that has a blue ‘verified’ tick icon on their profile has had their qualifications vetted and verified by the Maison Sport team, the level of qualification required to have a verified account on Maison Sport varies slightly by country. As follows: France – all verified instructors must carry a ‘Carte Professionelle’ licence, the qualification requirements for this licence are very high. The licence is administered by the French Government (to attain a Carte Professionelle most instructors will have studied for an average of 5 years+ to attain the correct level of qualification). Aside from requiring the instructor to have the highest level of qualification, which includes numerous teaching and technical performance diplomas in skiing or snowboarding, European mountain safety courses and the Euro speed test, the instructors are also required to have a criminal record check and a first aid certificate. Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Finland, Scotland, Spain – all verified instructors must carry a minimum level of qualification which must be at the ISIA card level or above. Instructors working independently must provide documentation to show they meet the local regulatory requirements to do so and instructors that are working for a ski school must provide details of the school they work for.
Unless otherwise agreed with the instructor no more than 6 people can take part in a lesson, each instructor will have 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
