Sport is my life. I used to ride motocross on a national competitive level and I am an active biker too. I am also a qualified TEFL English teacher which helps me explain the modern ski techniques easy way and to master them depending on your needs and expectations.
I offer premium ski lessons in Zermatt for families, groups and children both onpiste and offpiste.
The ski lessons could be in English, German and Russian.
I also teach in other ski resorts such as Verbier and Saas-Fee in Switzerland and in Austria and France.
I have lived in Zermat since 2006 and I know the resort well.
This enables me to choose the most appropriate slopes for your ski ability, fitness level and the weather to make sure that your time spend on skies will be an enjoyable learning experience and fun!
Safety....learning, fun and enjoyment based on so many years of experience as a ski instructor, coach, trainer and a former motocross rider and biker.
It was amazing.the fact I was alone, it was better to me because I had all the attention of Petr. Good knowledge, patient, he knows to protect the students to protect themselves. Everytime encourages and talks tips to do the next time better.
Myself and my two boys had great instruction from Petr. It really got our ski holiday off to a great start having not skied for a couple of years. Petr's instruction was clear and focussed on exactly what we needed to concentrate on.
Petr is amazing!! With our first ski experience he patiently guide us with the ski techniques and make us feel very comfortable through out the lesson!! I would definitely recommend him and visit Petr for ski lessons next time!! Enjoy the lessons and great ski experience with Petr!! 💯💯
Petr was a very experienced and knowledgeable teacher, we had a great time and would highly recommend him.
Hi everyone, I’m Daisy (11 years old), I’ve been taught by my Petr with my 11 year old twin brother and 8 year old sister for 2 full days and 2 half days. Petr is AWESOME! He is super friendly and really encouraging. He speaks amazing English and is super funny! I really recommend him to everyone!
Great pedagogical ski instructor! We had fun and learned a lot.
I have only been skiing for 4 years and visited Zermatt after a somewhat discouraging visit to St. Anton in early January. I decided to take a lesson with Petr on the first day of my visit in hopes of getting technical advice, improving my confidence, and receiving recommendations on where to ski. In advance of my lesson with Petr, we connected over WhatsApp to discuss my experience, expectations, and arrange where to meet. Petr responded quickly to each message and on the morning of our lesson, was easily located and on time. For the next 3 hours, I enjoyed speaking with Petr about skiing techniques, sports, travel, and more. I very quickly became more confident in my ability and was challenged by Petr to consider my movements and technique while skiing, stopping regularly to discuss my observations, what worked, and what didn't work. Having taken several lessons over the years, I can confidently say that Petr provided the most actionable and specific changes to how I skied and I carried these with me throughout the next 3 days I spent in Zermatt. I arrived in Zermatt as a 'Blue' piste skier, and even then felt uncomfortable. Following my lesson with Petr, I confidently tackled nearly every 'Red' piste (and several 'Black') in Zermatt and Cervinia for the rest of my visit. Petr - Thank you for your professionalism and friendliness during our session. I feel I have truly turned a corner in skiing ability and confidence after our lesson. My visit to Zermatt was exceptional in large thanks to you.
Petr was absolutely great with our family. We are 4 people of different ages and different ski levels. Somehow he managed to give a special attention to each of us and made our day very pleasant and fun! We can’t say enough. Our kids (not easy ones) loved him! It was just perfect! We all improved our technique and confidence! Thank you Petr!
Petr is a very calm, kind and encouraging teacher. I was very nervous initially but due to Petr I have regained my confidence after not skiing for a couple years . He slowly upgraded the level of difficulty I attempted and I am now an enthusiastic skier again . I would definitely recommend Petr .
Petr was one of the best ski instructors I’ve had! Took my partner from a complete beginner to being able to ski in a day while making sure I still had fun as an experienced skier. Thanks!
Thank you Petr for 3 great days under your expert supervision. You took me from snow plough to red runs in that short time, always with the right balance of confidence building and pushing me to expand my skills. I always felt you understood where my abilities were at each stage and never pushed too far from the comfort zone. Would highly recommend Petr to make your skiing experience great fun
Petr managed to improve our skiing with targeted feedback in a short space of time and was extremely responsive in advance, as well as during the lesson.
Petr was a fantastic instructor, he had the task of teaching my 6 year old and myself ( 40) however kept us both extremely safe and ensured my little lad had fun too. Petr was patient and completely in control. I will definitely be seeking his expertise again when back in Zermatt. Thank you!
Пётр- это профессионал Он смог не только все об’яснить по технике но и ( поскольку мы были в Церматте с дочкой первый раз) выступил в роли гида Мы провели прекрасное время в чем немалая заслуга Петра.
I have had many ski teachers across Switzerland and Petr is by far the best. He really has a natural ability to make learning to ski such fun! He is highly experienced, patient and gave me the technique and confidence to take my skiing to the next level. I will be booking with him next year!
The boys loved their lesson very informative and helpful for them to become more competent skiers.
Petr is an incredibly friendly guy who went out of his way to help our family make the most of the short time we had with him. He gave all five of us great tips that had an immediate impact and made it fun too. Once he had established our competence, he took us to a more advanced area. Other instructors might not have made that extra effort. We would have booked him for longer if he was available.
Petr was fantastic in helping me rediscover my beginner skills from a trip 4 years ago, and build my confidence and control. He was very patient and found lots of relevant analogies to help me understand how to improve. After brief correspondence about my needs he took me to an appropriate blue run in Zermatt (Riffelberg). Would 100% recommend him as a private instructor; we had a great afternoon! Thank you Petr!!
Excellent lesson, really helpful and friendly. Thank you!
Petr was a fantastic teacher and really took us from beginner to feeling like we could confidently ski 10/10
Petr was very experienced and showed our group how to get around the various slopes which were new to us. We only had 3 hours with him but he managed to give us some good hints and tips to improve our technique and enjoy our skiing a little more. Thanks Petr.
Petr is a great instructor! Prior to a lesson he is very easy to communicate, he replies fast and with detailed information. Lesson I had with Petr was fun and very productive. I feel I progressed a lot in just a couple of hours. He also has a very pleasant and reassuring attitude and I can't recommend Petr high enough! If you need ski classes - book Petr and you will not regret it.
Petr is a great teacher! I found the way that he teaches very easy to understand, and I felt that a had a real improvement!
We booked Petr for a 2 hour lesson earlier and he was extremely flexible with our schedule. My wife is intermediate standard and I am a BEGINNER but Petr made us feel so comfortable, splitting his time equally between us. He offered technical tips to help my wife improve and took her down some challenging slopes. He was extremely patient with me and helped me progress greatly in 2 hours. Well worth the money to get a private lesson with Petr and he's a good laugh as well. Highly recommended!
Skiing with Petr was a great experience! He was very patient and explained everything clearly. He estimated my abilities, answered all of my questions and thanks to him I could progress really quickly. Lesson was fun and I enjoyed a lot our time on a slope. Would definitely recommend him!
Petr was so patient to teach us ski level by level. Thanks to him I could learn how to ski even if I hadn't had any skiing experience before. Now I can say that ski is one of my fav sports! It was absolutely great experience! We highly recommend him! Thank you Petr!
What can I say? I am a middle aged ex rugby player and relatively inexperienced skier, for me, Petr was a superb instructor during my time in Zermatt, he quickly fully assessed my ski level and immediately set to work with me, adding improvements almost instantaneously whilst keeping it fun too! Petr’s command of the English language due to his ability as a teacher was admirable and it really enabled us to have a good exchange as the session progressed. We had a good understanding and a good laugh throughout! I left the Swiss mountains this year feeling much more competent and capable and I look forward to many more days on the slopes with the skills and confidence that Petr helped me to develop! Great job Petr and thank you!!!
Petr was a wonderful instructor, can’t recommend him highly enough!
Petr is a very experienced instructor which will be able to identify Quickly where you need to improve and will be able to give you tips and technical advice. I had a one day class with him and definitely could see the improvement in the next ski days!
Petr was absolutely amazing. His communication prior to us meeting was very responsive and thorough. He guided me through the entire process including renting my equipment, getting my ski pass and where to meet. He was early and took care of me until we parted where we met. I’m 58 years old and wasn’t even sure I could stand up on skies. His teaching skills are excellent as is his English. He was very patient with me and also very flexible with his time. Safety is a priority and he never put me in a situation where I felt in danger. I would trust him with my kids or grandchildren. We accomplished what I set out to do, skiing in the Swiss Alps. Petr had me skiing as a beginner and made me fall in love with it. I will definitely use him again and would highly recommend him to anyone, young or older like myself.
Petr was a pleasure to have as an instructor. He was attentive to my needs, and very helpful to have particularly Tuesday and Wednesday when visibility was poor. He’s very friendly and we had many conversations about his skiing and coaching, as well as mine. I would recommend him highly and hope to ski with him again.
Petr worked with a 7 year old girl, a 9 year old boy, a great woman skier 45 years old, and a 77 year old man. Quite a mix. He was terrific. We all had fun, learned some techniques and explored the beautiful mountain in Zermatt. Thank you
Super fun day with Petr! Great at meeting all family members where they are and making skiing fun - we had a wide range of ages from 4 - 42 and he was a perfect fit for all of us. Highly recommend!!!
Peter is one of the best ski instructors I have ever had. His lessons are fun and creative. You will remember each lesson and improve your technical skills if you just follow him. I can highly recommend Peter and wish him a lot of happy customers.
We spent 4 days with Petr in Zermatt. It was a large group, including three adults and four chidren. Some skiers were more experienced than others and therefore we ended up splitting into sub groups over the various days! Over and above the fact that Petr is an excellent ski instructor with huge attention to safety and also with a very good ability to patiently explain subtle technical issues, what really stood out to me about Petr was his flexible, friendly and patient manner! Our group was at times slightly erratic and "lively", with spirited children.....and yet Petr dealt with all of us with utmost patience, courtesy, good spirit and a very friendly attitude! Far and away his best feature is his focus on the client and his great attitude! Leonardo
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
