After a number of years skiing for my club I qualified for the England team, where I stayed for the next two years. During my time in the England team, I raced all over Europe. At the age of 17, 3 other athletes and I decided to set up our own team based in Megève, with a French coach, racing on the FIS circuit for GB.

I finished racing in 2016. I knew that I wanted to work in the mountains and pass my knowledge onto others who love this sport. Having spent a huge amount of time travelling and living throughout the Alps whilst training and racing, I have a wealth of knowledge about this area. I also spent 5 years living in Megève, during this time gaining great knowledge of the Evasion Mont Blanc area.

Christian gave us 6 hours of tuition over two mornings. He had two of us to teach, one late 20’s and the other late 50’s. Christian dealt with this very well. He was very patient and answered all our questions in a clear concise way. Once he saw our confidence grow he was keen to stretch us out of our comfort zone to progress us further. Only problem was I skied far better when Christian was there rather than back skiing with the rest of the family! Not so with my son in law who carried on the technique we had been taught and fared much better. We would both thoroughly recommend Christian who is a really great teacher and all round great guy.

Christian is a fantastic ski instructor (and a great person to ski with) who tailored each day to suit conditions. He was very good at giving simple but effective individual feedback within a group. He knows Megeve like the back of his hand, as well as surrounding resorts. A special treat was his knowledge of great local lunch spots - some hidden gems. We enjoyed his company and his instruction very much. We highly recommend him.

Christian was a super instructor - he made 4 very intermediate 50-somethings improve their technique and confidence with his easy tips and encouragement. He was a great general guide with lots of interesting information about all the places we skied. Communication excellent, very accommodating of our requirements and all round nice guy. Highly recommended!

I was very lucky to have booked Christian as my coach. i only got one day for skiing and i had no experience ever. Christian was very patient and helpful, made my whole training relaxing but gaining. i could not even walk with shoes on snow at beginning, and in the end i could make some turns on the ski slope. highly recommended!

My 5 year old daughter can be quite shy but Christian made her feel at ease straight away and she loved the lessons as a result. Her skiing improved dramatically over the week and she has asked if she can be taught by Christian next year. High praise! I would definitely recommend Christian.

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
