I am qualified to the highest level in the British system and have the French carte professionnel. I have been based in the three valley's for the last 4 winters so have great knowledge of the area.

I grew up with skis on as soon as I could walk, on dry slopes and in the highlands of Scotland. I still teach on dry slopes in the summer time running race training camps and instructor training meaning I pretty much ski everyday all year round!

I am a patient and relaxed instructor with beginners or nervous individuals and love teaching kids lessons. I spend a lot of my time coaching at a high level helping people to make transformations in their skiing. I really enjoy teaching all ages, abilities and on all types of terrain, I have a vast experience of coaching at all levels so whether its your first time on skis or you just want to perfect your technique I am sure I can help you achieve your goal!

  • Great with beginners
  • Fun children’s lessons
  • Patient with improvers
  • Superb for intermediates
  • Fantastic with experts

I booked 2 x 2 hour lessons with Robert and can't say enough good things about him. As a 47 year old man who had started skiing in the last year or so he immediately realised the bad technique I was using and worked straight away to correct this. He provided me excellent technical advice whilst staying very patient as i did at times revert back to my bad ways and struggled a little bit as the old legs fatigued. After the lessons I now feel much more confident in skiing on blue runs and having the feedback to continue to improve. On top of the excellent skiing advice Robert is also a top man and very easy to get along with. So I would 100% recommend him and you will definitely improve under Roberts guidance.

Robert was a superb instructor - friendly, encouraging and patient, but also knew how to push me on in terms of trying new exercises to improve my parallel turns etc. He was absolutely five-star. My husband and I will be looking to book more time with him in April when we return to Courchevel for more skiing. Thank you Robert!

Robert was a really informative and fun instructor. We really wanted to focus on learning our technique as first time skiers and we got to do that and more! His feedback and the way he explained this was excellent have already recommended him to others going next month to use Robert.

Robert was amazing. My family of 6 all loved Robert’s tips, exercises and the way he explained the technical side of skiing . We have all skied a lot and really enjoyed our 4 hours with Robert.Would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to improve any aspect of their skiing. We wished we had have discovered him earlier in our holiday.

Rob took a group of my friends/family for five lessons in Courchevel last week. He very quickly assessed the ability of our group and tailored our lessons to suit. We had a great week and with Rob's help our skiing improved whilst having a fun time. We were a group of mixed ages and abilities, and I would recommend him as an ideal instructor for any age/ability. He was excellent at explaining what we needed to do in layman terms that we could all understand. I would definitely use him again in the future.

I was super nervous to ski following my back injury, but Rob was amazing! He really put my mind at ease. I'm no longer nervous and ready to take on whatever the mountain throws at me! After my lesson he also took my 3 kids on a lesson and was AMAZING! They returned full of knowledge and motivated to practice their newfound skills on the slope. I would recommend Robert to skiers of all abilities and of all ages, thanks again Rob!

Robert taught my 3 children (aged 8, 10 & 12) for 5 afternoons, they had a great time, improved their skiing and thoroughly enjoyed his company - coming back every afternoon with new riddles and interesting stories! He made the lessons really fun and managed to balance the different needs and abilities of my three children- who all agreed he was the best ski teacher they’d had! Thanks Robert, Kate

Skiing with Rob has been a fantastic experience as he has a genuine passion for seeing you progress as a skier. He manages to maintain a perfect balance of making sure you are getting as much as possible from the lesson all the while never overloading you with information.
