Father of six kids, all of them brillant with ski (one national level), snowboard or monoski... I love snow, and smiles.
Many families appreciate my way of teaching, all levels.
Former teacher in French National ski school.
Modesty out ;-]], Financial Times wrote about me: "Word class ski instructor."
What else?
***/
"SMART SKIING", "SKIER INTELLIGENT", with Pierre Raisson, SKI-INSTRUCTOR.
Personalised skiing, snowboarding and mono skiing lessons, for all ages, all levels, also for the ‘disheartened’.
Former examiner for the École Nationale de Ski et d’Alpinisme, also within the *** instructors, Pierre Raisson, technic creator and author of the first books about snowboarding and mono skiing.
Over time, analysing the common techniques of these different forms of snow sports imposed itself on him.
Ski, snowboard, monoski: "same combat" !
Transform your qualities, your quest for progression, your desires, your fears, sometimes visceral, understandably, then into HAPPINESS !
I think, so I slide.
Then again, is it necessary to know what to think.
Then we must first ski with our head, with intelligence as a support.
Know what you are doing on the snow and why you are doing so, even before it is done.. do you follow?
This way of teaching skiing, snowboarding and mono skiing, based on a high level of comprehension simplified from the unavoidable laws of physical, physiological and psychological anatomy, applied on snow sports. This method enriches your experience and stays the best path towards your success and pleasure on snow.
Thinking is one thing, acting is another.
Also...
One of the first tracks (the second, one thinks) of mono skiing in the 80s on the North face of the Mont Blanc, 4808 m..., including several firsts tracks snowboarding in 1993 on the East face of the “Pic du Communisme”, the highest sommet of Pamyr at 7495 m, to support his words, his books.
On slopes, off pistes, adults, children, beginners (he adores!), intermediate to confirmed, even desperate cases, alone or accompanied, for sure you will know where you are, why, and what doors are opened to you.
Understanding to learning, whatever the level, be "SMART SKIER", so “SKIER INTELLIGENT”: “what else?”.
Patience and assurance.
Humour and poetry, if affinities.
His happiness to him? Your progress!

My 6yrs son had 3 days of 2hrs lessons. Our aim was for him to progress from snowplough to parallel skiing - this was achieved! My son loved his lessons and enjoyed spending time with Pierre. He is a fascinating gentleman with extensive experience and a wealth of knowledge. Thank you Pierre!

We had a memorable two hour refresher lesson with Pierre for our family of 4 at the start of our week in Les Arcs. He is a great teacher and took time to explain his philosophy of skiing - keep the head up, stand tall, hips and belly forward, arms higher up and in front. We didn’t have much time with Pierre but we’ve each been thinking about what he told us since our lesson and he certainly has made us feel like better skiers as a result. Bravo Pierre!

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
