I was born in a small town called Susa (north ouest Italy, next to the border between Italy and France), located pretty close to Torino and many ski resorts such as Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, Bardonecchia, very popular for the Olympic Games in two thousand six. I started skiing when I was 3 years old. I did my first race when I was 5 years old and I stopped my “racing career” at the age of 17, after a serious knee injury.
I studied Sport Science and Management at the University of Torino, during this time I again appreciated skiing and specially teaching this fabulous sport, so I decided to attend the course to become a ski instructor.
I’ve been a ski instructor for 9 years and I worked in Italy (Bardonecchia and Sestriere) and in France (Les deux Alpes).
In the summer I usually help my father, we renovate old houses and I rent some apartment for tourists who come in the Susa Valley to discover this wonderful area. I really love sports in general and when I have the time I immediately go out for cycling, running or clim***. I have two kids, Leonardo (5 years old) and Jacopo (3 years old), they obviously both really love skiing!
I drive a van with 9 places and I can reach you wherever is your accommodation and I'll take you directly to the slopes.

I had an excellent lesson with Claudio. He understood perfectly what I needed in this lesson ; my first return to skiing after rupturing my ACL in March 2019. It was a test of my knee and my confidence. Claudio paced it perfectly; enough challenge but at a steady, reassuring pace. I was able to ski for the rest of the week, but would happily have had more lessons had I needed them. Claudio was good company on the lesson and I have no hesitation recommending him.

Claudio did a brilliant job of teaching all of us how to ski, even though we were very different ages and abilities! He made the day really fun and and went out of his way to be helpful, by picking us up, helping out with 2 of our children (even though they weren't in the group!) and going with us on a green run even after the lesson had finished. We all feel like we improved so much and the exercises made it fun too!

Claudio was a fantastic instructor for us as a family of 4 (2 adults, 16yr old & 12yr old) helping us progress and feel confident on blue runs and took us on our first ever red run! He was patient, friendly and made the lessons really fun, with games and going through the fun parks and doing jumps which we all loved! Thank you Claudio!

We arrived in Courchevel without having booked ski lessons but I couldn’t be happier that we found Claudio. We are a group of two complete beginners (like, never even worn a ski boot), and two almost beginners who have skied once before. Claudio was friendly, fun, constructive, encouraging, and we all ended up feeling so much more confident and gained basics to take with us on the rest of our trip. Claudio also brought along a GoPro which I wasn’t expecting, and kindly took photos and videos of us all throughout the session - an amazing added bonus so we have things to take away. Really couldn’t recommend Claudio more highly. Thanks Claudio!

I was a complete beginner when I met Claudio yesterday morning. I couldn’t even put my boots on without his help. I spent this afternoon after our second lesson enjoying independent skiing with my friends. Claudio was patient, kind and funny - he really encouraged me to push myself and gain the skills and confidence I needed to enjoy my first experience on the slopes. I would highly recommend him to anyone like me who would like to try skiing but has no idea where to start. He’s helped me to understand why people love to ski and now I have a new hobby. Thanks Claudio!

I was a nervous beginner, but Claudio transformed me into a confident, independent skier. Claudio’s passion is contagious, he’ll get you to your goals, and he’ll make it fun! After each lesson, Claudio gave me suggestions on where to go and what to focus on. This reinforced and maximised his lessons. I could hear his voice telling me to “banana”. I’ve got the skiing bug, and I’ll be booking in some lessons with Claudio on my next trip.

Notre petite romy a bénéficié de cours il y a 2 ans avec Claudio ... il l a beaucoup fait rire avec ses pizzas pour le chasse neige et son accent italien et son enthousiasme ! Romy a fait beaucoup de progrès à l époque où l Esf ne voulait pas la sortir du jardin des neiges à cause de son jeune âge ! De beaux souvenirs !

Claudio is a lovely, patient instructor and both my son and I enjoyed our lessons and learnt a lot from him. We can’t wait to go skiing next year and we would love to have Claudio teach us again- it would make our holidays!
