Rob is an amazing and very patient teacher with a great knowledge of the Three Valleys He managed to show us the best runs, all main villages and lifts in the area and improved my intermediate and my friend’s advanced technique in just a day! Our lesson was fun and rewarding and we enjoyed Rob’s very friendly and helpful attitude. We look forward to more great skiing experience with Rob who made our trip very enjoyable - a great local guide I would recommend to anyone going to the Three Valleys for skiing!

I came to Meribel for my 45 birthday as a beginner with just a day on indoor slopes back in the UK, I very quickly realised that there was a lot of basics that I had missed completely. I booked 1-2-1 Personal lessons with Rob, he took me back to the beginning helping me work on balance and confidence and kept me at a pace I was comfortable with. As I was holidaying with expert skiers it was great to have the opportunity to ski at my own pace and navigate my way around to areas that I could achieve whilst improving my skill as I went Robs technical feedback was great and really gave me a good understanding of where I was going wrong . And how to put it right . On my final day In Meribel I skiing alone as other half was tackling the harder slopes without Rob and I managed to get around with confidence and could hear his direction in my head as I worked it out for myself. A great start to a new sport that I will keep going with for life!

I am a 76 year old nervous skier, but Rob was always patient and encouraging from the first lesson to the last. A delightful person to spend a few hours with each morning and I really enjoyed my skiing in Val Thorens thanks to Rob.

We had a great two afternoon sessions with Rob. He showed us lots of techniques that helped us get out of that plough into parallel, we finished the sessions feeling so much more confident and able to ski any slopes. Robs manor is very friendly and patient and his explanations and examples really helped cement the practical techniques. I’d highly recommend.

Rob was just the perfect guide for our group of mixed abilities. He was able to step it up for the best and throttle back for the less confident and was completely flexible as to who he skied with and when within our allotted time. He was relaxed and reassuring in equal measure and a first class communicator getting he balance between too much fact and enough to make a tangible difference just right. He is also a really nice bloke! We all strongly recommend him.

We hired Rob for two days off-piste guiding/instruction in Feb 2019. He was JUST GREAT!! It was for me (slightly unfit(!) Dad) and my four kids (2 boys 2 girls - aged 11 to 18). Rob was on time, had all the off-piste kit and took us to places we would just never have been able to go without him - and was great fun throughout. Fantastic knowledge of the whole three-valleys area and we had some of the most glorious off-piste skiing I've done in years. He even got my two girls (14 and 18) to do a 30 minute hike up with skis on their backs WITHOUT THEM COMPLAINING. Bearing in mind last year they moaned for the full 10 minute hike up we did then - that was no mean feat. Rob took and shared pictures and video of all of us - and even made me look (quite!) good. He found great (and good value) places to eat lunch both days (difficult when in Courchevel valley!) and had no problem with stopping for hot chocolate (vin chaud in my case) even though it meant we ran an hour over the time booked. Rob also gave us all just the right amount of instruction and tips for our techniques, and by the end of the two days, we were all so much more confident and able in the deep snow. All in all - I cannot recommend Rob enough. A lovely chap, great with kids and olds alike, fantastic local knowledge, and knew exactly how hard to push us, and when to have fun. We will definitely be back with Rob on our next visit. Paul

We really enjoyed our two days with Rob skiing in Courchevel. He got the balance absolutely right between exploring some lovely runs, responding to our various questions and requests, and giving helpful advice/excercises to improve our skiing. (We were an intermediate adult group of 5 but with varying ability). He was great at boosting confidence and, being a local, also had useful tips on cafes, restaurants and general knowledge about the area. On top of that he's friendly and down to earth. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Thanks Rob!

2 of us had a really fun private lesson with Rob. He was very enthusiastic and helped us a lot with our technique, trying to get us to correct old bad habits. I am looking forward to a powder lesson with him in the future. I highly recommend him.

Rob is a wizard of the snow. He helped me learn where I was going wrong, knew which slopes to take, and was patient and encouraging. Thanks Rob PS. The site itself should warn of the booking charge up-front pls.

Well where should I start. It was as if we had known Rob for years. It's not an exaggeration to say that he made our ski holiday a more enjoyable experience. His form of instruction was very targeted and easy to understand - his suggestions transformed our skiing and made it easy to put his instruction into practice. In addition, Rob was happy to work around us and even booked us a table for lunch. We would have no hesitation in recommending Rob as an instructor. We;; down Maison Sport this booking was the highlight of our trip. Ten out of ten for Rob

Outstanding instructor! Rob blends his vast knowledge of skiing and the mountains with a warm, caring, motivating style. He recognises weaknesses and builds the lessons with easy to understand instruction. Over the years he has taught members of my family at all levels of ability and we have all made vast improvements and had great fun doing so. We would all thoroughly recommend him as a ski instructor. Thanks Rob!

John G.


An epic day ski-touring in the Haute-Savoie back-country. Great local-knowledge and an ability to seek-out precisely what I wanted: maximum vertical ascent, a long powder descent with high-end technical challenge. Rob is a master of his craft and is at his best instructing on technique throughout the most difficult and technically challenging pitches. What's not to like. 5-stars; best day on skis in some considerable time.
