Our kids had a great time with Uffe, they said he was great fun. Would highly recommend Uffe. If we were to come back he would be our first choice if available. The girls came away with more skills and lots of smiles and confidence. All in all a great experience for them. Thanks Uffe.

Me and two mates had a lesson to brush up on our technique with Uffe! He was great, not only cool to hangout with but knows an awful lot about technique. By the end of the lesson we were going down back runs comfortably and confidently! Cheers Uffe!

We had three fantastic mornings with Uffe and wouldn't hesitate to book him next year. He is friendly, easy-going, and great fun to be around. We were a group of nervous intermediates that wanted to progress, and Uffe offered helpful, bitesize feedback and tips for us to implement. He also has fantastic knowledge of the area and took us to some cool places. No two days were the same. Thanks Uffe!

We had a great mixed ability lesson with Uffe (6 people). He was really personable and friendly, and gave us some useful tips to improve our skiing. Only thing that would have made the session better is if he had watched us individually and given specific technical feedback to each of us, but overall he was great and we’d recommend.

Uffe took our two children (8 and 11) for a week of morning lessons. We were totally at ease from the first morning and able to ski without any worries - even when one of the kids was off-colour! The children loved their time with him - he got them both to progress hugely through the week, but whilst keeping it really fun and relaxed. He was brilliantly flexible, with great communication well before our week in the alps and with loads of daily photos and videos. Highly recommended and many thanks.

Uffe was an extraordinary instructor, that became my son's hero and our best friend :) our family, husband, wife and 5 year old son had beginners lessons and were skiing by the third day. Of course my son was easier and went to harder levels faster ! He is patient, fun, and can manage all levels. We will def book him for future trips.

My twelve year old son spent five mornings learning to snowboard with Uffe. He absolutely loved every minute of their time together and came back happy and relaxed after his lessons. Uffe sent us lots of photos and videos throughout the week, which we loved! His calm and friendly manner really suited our son. We had three instructors from Maison Sport and they were brilliant at communicating with each other so that we all started and finished our classes in the same location. Thank you so much for a wonderful week Uffe!

Uffe, was a fantastic instructor. I am an experienced skier but had not been for many years so I needed a refresher lesson. I've had private lessons in Val d'isère before and can say that Uffe was the best. He is very friendly and gave me great ski pointers which allowed me to see immediate improvement in my technique.

This was a Christmas present and Uffe was extremely knowledgeable about the ski resort. He came prepared with all the equipment needed to have a bit of an adventure. Despite less than perfect conditions due to the wind on the previous day, Uffe knew the right spots to show me. My score is a perfect 10!

Uffe was a wonderful instructor for a group of six young boys (aged 5-9). He had patience with their diverse personalities and range of abilities. He kept it fun and travelled all across the Tignes/Val D’ Mountain over six mornings, happily delivering them to the parents requested lunch points. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

I can say with confidence that Uffe was, without a doubt, the best ski instructor I have had in Tignes. He was kind, supportive, enthusiastic and fun, and had a way of unlocking my confidence and understanding of technique in a way that no one has managed previously. I will use him again and would recommend him to anyone thinking of taking lessons in the Espace Killy.

Uffe was a superb instructor who provided great support and teaching to my 12year old son who was on his second week of skiing and to me who has been a few more times but am still hopeless. He made it a great week and my son (who has additional needs) went from a very anxious nursery slope skiier to a blue run by the end of the week. Thank you Uffe!

We had a great 4 days with Uffe and progressed much faster than we’d expected. He wasn’t overly technical, describing what we should do in simple clear terms and was really encouraging when he could see we were struggling. His experience meant he could read our body language and know what was going on in our heads! He was great company and we had fun. We are proud of what he enabled us to achieve, thank you Uffe!

Had a great 5 afternoons with Uffe - he coped admirably with our range of ages, confidences and abilities adapting the lesson as required. The conditions were not always easy but we had lots of fun and the best day was definitely exploring the hidden valley as a family. Would thoroughly recommend him. Thanks Uffe.

Uffe was fantastic. My 7yr old son had a melt down with me before we met with Uffe so I was a bit worried Austin would not enjoy the lesson. I need not have worried, Uffe engaged with Austin from the start, so much so, I left them for an hour or so. Uffe built Austins confidence, got Austin to a stage so we could easily go on blue runs and carry on where he left off. Thank you Uffe, you are a star.

This was my wife and my first time at Val. We are both experts (she is a former racer and racing coach). The first day was partly overcast with some snow. The light was mixed with light snow. Uffe helped us chase the sun and find the best spots. The second day was glorious sun and we were on and off piste all day. He is personable and friendly and helped make our visit to Val great.

I highly recommend Uffe to anyone. He was very friendly and his English is excellent. My wife and I had only skied a couple of times before this trip, the last time being 15 years ago, and Uffe started us off on beginners slopes and quickly assessed our ability and then constantly helped us with our technique which made relearning to ski easier. He was very patient with us when things weren't working for us and quickly made adjustments in how he was teaching us so we understood what we needed to do. His knowledge of the Val d'Isere & Tignes area was impeccable and he knew exactly what runs to takes on to suit our current abilities. In the 2 three hour morning sessions he had advanced us through green & blue to doing some of the easier red runs, which was well beyond our abilities of 15 years ago. When we come back here to ski again we will definitely be booking Uffe!

I had lessons with Uffe during my trip to Val d'Isère and I would strongly recommend skiing with him. He is an excellent instructor and a really nice guy! I had limited skiing experience when I first met Uffe and I was very nervous on the slopes. However, with his patience and encouragement, I was confidently skiing down the green runs by the end of my holiday. Whenever I "fell" (it wasn't exactly falling, more like me sitting down!) or made mistakes, he explained what I was doing wrong and how I could improve the next time. This approach really worked with me as I improved each time I did a run. He also pushed me to achieve more, but in a very comfortable way...a good instructor understands the limits of their student while still pushing them gently forward and Uffe definitely did that. I always felt comfortable with him on the slopes, while still facing challenges. If I return to Val d'Isère then I will definitely book lessons with Uffe again. He made me feel very comfortable on the slopes and gave me the confidence/technique to go from being a complete beginner to confidently skiing down greens on my own...all in the space of a few days. I would strongly recommend booking lessons with him!

I had a great session with Uffe in Val d'Isere in January. He is a really competent instructor. I hadn't skied in a while and was looking for someone to help me brush up my technique - he very quickly identified a few bad habits and given the limited time we had together we worked on sorting out the low hanging fruits which allowed me to ski more effortlessly for the rest of my stay. He also took me to some great off-piste spots which he seems to be very familiar with, which was the highlight of our session for me. He is also equally comfortable chatting in French and English. Finally, I've really enjoyed his character - he is a very friendly, social and flexible guy and we had a good time over a few beers at the pub that evening. I'd highly recommend his services.
