I started coaching skiing for a ski race club in Edinburgh in 2003, since then I have progressed my way through the British ski instructor system. Along the way i have worked with lots of different clubs organisations and companies. I finished the ISTD – International Snowsports Teacher Diploma in 2010 and started delivering courses for the British Association of Snowsports Instructors in 2015.
For the last 7 years I have been based in Val d'Isere predominately working for New Generation Ski School, but also working with different race clubs and organisations like The British Children’s Team, F.A.S.T (Snowsports Scotland training group), Podium (instructor race training programme) and British Para-Snowsports. During the winter I like to ski the whole mountain in all styles from introducing the sport to beginners to ski touring into the vast off-piste of the Espace Killy.

My sessions can be tailored to your needs, whether that’s developing your in depth technical understanding or changing your skill set to get around the Pistes with ease. The format of the sessions tend to be 9 – 12, 13 – 16, or all day although this can be altered.

  • Excellent with all abilities
  • Fun children’s lessons
  • Superb for intermediates
  • Off piste expert
  • Brilliant local knowledge

Dougie was really amazing with our daughter Rosie. She had only been skiing once before a few years ago and after 2 lessons with him, she was skiing down the mountains with me even in terrible weather conditions! She is only 8! Thank you so much. She had so much confidence which reflects his teaching. He also taught our other daughter and her friend for one morning again in terrible weather and they really enjoyed his teaching too and he gave them both great confidence too. Thank you Dougie. Hope to see you again one day. And thank you Maison Sport for s truly brilliant and perfectly slick service. Happy new year!

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
