We had a great afternoon's lesson with Lionel - we are a family of five, all intermediates, but with quite a range of ability, and Lionel helped us all. He was particularly good with our teenagers and helped them work on their technique, while also taking them on some fun pistes that we might not have found otherwise. Thanks Lionel! Victoria D

Lionel was a great ski instructor. He structured our lesson perfectly as we were a group of 2 intermediates and 1 beginner who all wanted to ski together. His clearly thought lesson greatly benefited our beginner skier who learned and progressed very quickly and overall gave all of us great confidence with useful tips and guidance about skiing and about Chamonix. I would definitely use and recommend Lionel in future.

Absolutely fantastic lesson, very patient with me. Complete beginner in the snowboard but after a lesson with Lionel, I was able to manage green routes across chamonix very comfortably. Very simple tips and just made the lesson very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend for all age groups and experience

Lionel is a fantastic teacher and really helped my daughter (7). He managed to further develop and teach her new technical skills whilst managing to keep the lessons fun. He was also able to give me some great tips to improve my skiing as well as little lessons to help teach my daughter outside of the lessons. This is my second time I have had lessons with Lionel and would definitely engage him again. A big thank you to Lionel. Hamish and Zahra

If you are looking for a great instructor look no further. We had Lionel for 2 lessons and were very satisfied with tutorials. He had a very professional approach. We had a huge progress from seeing skies for a first time to going to some blue lanes in just 2 days. We highly recommend him and would definitely book lessons with him again.

Everyone can learn something from Lionel !!! Me and my 6 year-old son had the absolute pleasure of being guided and instructed by Lionel this winter in Chamonix on some perfect days. Great with knowing all the local tricks and best places to go, technically awesome, great with kids and most of all a really understands how to make it fun for kids and adults knowing how to keep people of all ages engaged. . Its takes someone who is top of their game to be able to effortlessly spot all those little details every second of the day that makes our day brighter. Utmost respect and gratitude to Lionel - and on top of if its not enough, he's not a bad photographer and video artist :) Lucky you if you get him, he's in great demand !!!
