Laure H. gave private lessons to my wife, my son and I at Les Menuires last week. She was very professional and helped correct a few bad habits my wife and I had picked up many years ago when skis and techniques were different than today's equipment. Before the lesson, I was tiring quickly due to a poor turning technique, so Laure took me back to basics, where we focused on proper balance and weight shifting using snowplow turns at first. Once I was using proper technique, I found that I could stay in Laure's tracks and ski all the way down a run without stopping at all. What a difference this made to both my muscle endurance and pain level! My wife had become intimidated by the steeper blue runs, but again, once Laure sorted out a few technical flaws and helped her with balance and weight shifting, she regained her confidence and was able to go quite far away from our chalet in spite of not being quite fully recovered from a torn ankle ligament that happened just after Christmas. My son has taken weeklong group lessons the last five times we skied in the Alps. With him, Laure focused on fun, bumps, jumps and taught him to ski moguls. He was going off to ski black runs by himself the last day we were in Les 3 Vallees and he also skied five resorts in four valleys in one day, Les Menuires, Meribel, Courchevel, Val Thoren, and Orelle, chalking up 31 miles that day. Not bad for a 13-year-old! To summarise, whether you just need a fine tuning of your technique or you are starting from scratch, I highly recommend Laure H. if you want to progress quickly. She is a delightful and very professional instructor.

Laure is a brilliant teacher both of adults and children. She was very patient and encouraging of my daughter who was nervous and gave her a really thorough basis from which to develop her skiing confidence and skills. Laure remained positive and enthusiastic all week and by the end of the week she was doing parallel turns. With me, she corrected some bad habits and gave me the technical skills to ski down slopes that had previously terrified me. It was a great week and we can’t recommend Laure highly enough.

Laure was fantastic. I highly recommend her. We booked Laure for 4 hours on 2 consecutive days in Meribel. We are a British family of 5 of varying ability. She spent most time with our 2 youngest children who are aged 9 and 12. They really liked being with her and learnt a lot-really growing in confidence. She is hugely experienced and we all found her to be kind, gentle, easy to understand, and despite our differing abilities able to tailor her advice to each of us individually in a short period of time. I would recommend Laure without hesitation and am so grateful to find instructors of such good character and experience using Maison Sport. Thank you!

Wow, this is the first time that I have actually felt comfortable on skis. Laure took time to understand my fears and ensured that my technical ability was there, before pursuing more difficult slopes. In the past I have used group sessions and although these are good for some people, I found that I was always left behind. Laure took me back to basics to ensure my confidence on steeper slopes. I'm hoping to return to Courchevel next year and will definitely book with Laure again.

I have been taught by Laure of Ski Progression in the three valleys for the last 5 seasons which says a lot in itself. Laure is a fantastic teacher. She knows when to challenge you but also when to go back to basics and build up confidence again. She has taken me from a very anxious skier with only 2 weeks of experience as a teenager convinced I couldn't/wouldn't be able to ski to being happy to go down an easy red run - something I never thought I'd be able to do, let alone want to do. Thank you Laure and see you in December!

Laure was the most fantastic instructor we could have wished for. She was brilliant with our children; she completely nailed their characters on the first day and was able to push, tease, cajole and challenge them to improve daily. By the end of the week their skiing had improved hugely but they were also so much more confident. We tend to visit different resorts each year but will probably return to Les Trois Vallees next year just for Laure! Here what my children wrote her: "Thank you Laure for a super fun week. We have loved every minute with you and learnt so much! We hope to be able to ski with you next year. Amelia and Freddie xx P.S. Freddie says your forfeit is to ski down on one ski! " Rupert UK

Laure est une monitrice absolument géniale. Elle adapte sa façon d’enseigner à la tranche d’age et au niveau de chaque élève. J’ai fait d’incroyables progrès grâce à elle ! Et cerise sur le gâteau : Laure est très sympa et à de l’humour! What else ;)
