I started skiing when I was 3 years old on the beautiful mountains that surround Turin. I managed to make my passion for this sport become my work. I also love traveling and this has led me to make seasons in different corners of the world. My goal is to make this fantastic sport appreciate all my clients whatever their level, from the beginner to the more experienced. Fun, courtesy and professionalism are my strengths, so what are you waiting for? Contact me to book your ski lesson!

Did not manage to get the lessons this year with the resort closed due to the pandemic but Paolo was very flexible in moving them to next year. Stay healthy and looking forward to seeing you then!

Paolo was so brilliant – super friendly, really funny and a great teacher. We were a group of 3 girls, total beginners, and by the end of 3 morning lessons were shooting down blues with him! We had so much fun and lots of laughs :) thanks Paolo! Hannah, Hilary and Chrissy.

Paolo gave one of the best lessons I’ve ever had. His approach to improve my technique was really effective - he tailored his feedback and used a variety of ways to help me think differently and apply the training. Plus he’s super interpersonal, easy to talk to and a really interesting guy. Thanks Paolo!

Paolo was a fantastic instructor! I had never been skiing before, and within two hours I felt comfortable enough to go down a green run on my own. He was very patient when I made mistakes and was very friendly. I would highly recommend him to everyone! If I ever make it back I would definitely sign up for another lesson to work on some more advanced techniques!

3 years after I injured my knee, I came back to skiing today. I was very scared of my first movements. Fortunately, I had the technical, emotional and psicological support of Paolo. Great teacher and a lot of patient. I will recommend him to anyone.

Paolo was a great teacher for our 14 year old daughter. She learned a lot from him and she is really pleased that her skiing improved dramatically after 3 x 2 hour lessons with Paolo. Paolo is friendly and kind and has the ability to explain techniques well. We would certainly book him again if we came back to the area. Thank you, Paolo!

Paolo is exceptional. He has taught all 3 of my sons to ski but more importantly enthused them all with a real love of skiing. They can’t wait to come back. My 4yr old doesn’t like anyone but he likes Paolo!

Paolo provided a 2 hour lesson to myself and 2 friends. From point of booking he was very good at communicating and brilliant at the lesson where he gave us excellent advice and tips to overcome some of the bad habits we had. We were all ok on green runs but by the end of the lesson we were going down blues comfortably and in control. Paulo's instructions were clear and easy to follow. He also gave us some great tips on how to get around the resort and I would 100% recommend him. You won't go wrong using Paolo.

Paolo was excellent. I wasn't a complete beginner but I still needed work to help me get down a blue. He was patient and able to quickly identify flaws in technique and work on them. I found myself skiing a lot more confidently after a 2 hrs lesson. I tried to book him again for the next day but he was already booked. Book early and you will not regret it. HIGHLY recommend him !

Paolo was first class, he was able to observe our short comings and then provided very constructive, positive feedback and useful technical tips. We would most certainly recommend him and hopefully will be able to have further lessons from him in the future. He is also able to articulate all his advice and instruction in very good English.

We have used Paolo as our ski instructor and guide for a number of years. We have had many instructors over the years and Paolo is the best by far. He is an excellent instructor, very patient, skillful and great company to be with. He has been great teaching our young kids to ski who both think he is wonderful. Thoroughly recommend him.

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
