I caught the passion for skiing at 4 years in our garden on the hillside in Rothbury, Northumberland, and from skiing down the fields to school I progressed to teaching, racing, and coaching in the Scottish Highlands before moving on to FIS international ski racing all around Europe.
I have the French BREVETE D'ETAT from Ecole National de Ski and Alpinism (ENSA) in Chamoni***former BASI trainer/examiner and have the top British ski teaching qualification (BASI ISTD)

I've been lucky enough to have taught in some of the world's best ski schools in NZ, Chile, and Europe, and for the past 26 years, I'm based in and around beautiful Val d'Isère, the Tarentaise Valley, and the Valle d'Aosta.

I’ve not stopped studying, learning, and looking for the best ski teaching or coaching techniques, tactics, and psychological approaches to help guide my clients through the best learning experience I hope to give.

I adore teaching at any level, I'm very patient with nervous beginners, animated and safe with children, passionate and very experienced in guiding Off-piste while sharing my immense love for skiing and the whole snowy mountain experience.

I like to take lots of photos and I’ll give instant on the spot video analysis if requested.

I look forward to meeting and skiing with you.

Richard.

Beginner

Richard was very professional but also made us feel at ease and comfortable. Although me and my partner were at different skiing levels (both had one indoor lesson prior to visiting Val) Richard made sure we both felt like we had gained from the lesson. 2 hours with Richard made a world of difference, we finished up feeling confident to take on the green slopes and we would highly recommend! Thank you!!

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
