Françoise was very patient and calm. Taught us (2 complete beginners) all of the basics that we needed to know to set us up for skiing solo without her for the rest of our trip. Highly recommend her if you’d like to learn through an instructor that will make the lesson enjoyable.

Had a lovely lesson with Francoise. She was very professional, friendly and pushed us all to do very adventurous things. We are all really proud of our progress and that’s thanks to Francoise. Would highly recommend!

An excellent lesson with Françoise. The drastic progression made during our session even surprised me. From a complete novice to a decent skier - this achievement was only made possible due to Françoise's meticulous approach to skiing. She's a must if you're looking to develop as a skier at Les Arcs.

François transmits her passion and expertise with brio. In addition to the beautiful moment spent with her, she enabled to gain both confidence and technique. 4 hours of a rich private lesson - which hopefully will be repeated as soon as possible!

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?

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.

How many people can take part in the lesson?

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

How do I book?

If you are on a desktop computer or laptop, you will see a box on the right hand side of the screen which contains various lesson options and pricing, simply select the lessons you would like and then click 'Book now', then follow the instructions to make payment.
