I am a British ski instructor who has worked in Courchevel for the past 9 years. I have worked for 6 years with *** and then with some of the smaller schools in the 3 valleys.

I started skiing at the age of 4 in the states and since then just haven't stopped - taking every opportunity I could when not in school to ski. I even avoided a number of British summers by skiing in New Zealand for 3 years!

I am keen to teach and pass on what I have learnt to beginners or advanced skiers looking to explore blacks and off-piste!

  • Excellent with all abilities
  • Fun children’s lessons
  • Patient with improvers
  • Off piste expert
  • Brilliant local knowledge

Raab spent the week with our 5 year old son who loved his lessons. Couldn’t fault the service he provided. Will book again when we return. Thanks

We were a mixed ability group of 8, ranging from 13 to 44. Raab was friendly and experienced. He was able to quickly assess our abilities and handled us as three mini groups, each with different aims and targets. We would definitely recommend Raab to others in the area and would definitely book him again, if we visit this area of France next year.

Had an excellent time with Raab. He was punctual, polite and had very good local knowledge. We hired him to teach 3 boys aged 7,9 and 11 and they all loved Raab and had a great time with him. More importantly their skiing improved greatly over the week.

We only had one session with Raab but he was able to deal superbly with our mixed (lack of) abilities. Patient and reassuring he really helped our least experienced skiers. I couldn't recomend him more highly. Great company too. Thanks Tash!

Raab, as English instructor with very good French. Raab taught my five year old. Amelia progressed well in our week. Raab was very flexible in terms of timings meeting us where we wanted, taking our five year out to lunch with him etc allowing us to free time. Raab spent some time with my older children as well and both my older two children aged 10 and 12 enjoyed skiing with Raab. Snow wasn’t great our week hard and icy but Raabs local knowledge ensured that we got to ski the best runs

Raab is a great instructor and really helped me with my skiing technique and parallel turns. I had a few morning lessons with Raab which gave me a lot more confidence in my skiing and gave me pointers to work on. It was really easy to get in contact with Raab before my lessons to explain what I wanted to achieve and where to meet. I would definitely recommend him as an instructor!

Raab is the most amazing instructor. He is a fluent English speaker (but also speaks other languages) and is charming, polite and respectful. He is an ESF trained Senior instructor and we as parents can converse with him and our children completely teacher to him. We would recommend him wholeheartedly. But not at Feb half term. That’s when we book him. Honestly - he’s rubbish that week! Don’t book him then because that’s when we want to book him and it will just get into a bidding war. But he can recommend great contacts who are available then. He is amazing!!!!

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?

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
