I've been ski teaching on and off for 6 years, with a small break in the middle to pursue a career in finance, prior to this I was a member of the British Ski Team. When it comes to ski instructing I love the variety of skiers we get to ski with each week and particularly enjoy watching children and adults progress from being complete beginners to confident skiers.

In my spare time I'm out skiing with my 7 year old daughter or enjoying everything there is to enjoy about living in the Mountains.

Please send me a message if you need any more information!

Nick had our two boys (11 & 9) for 2 hours a day for 6 days in Avoriaz. 'What did you think of Nick as your ski instructor?' I asked... 'He was fun and friendly', 'I felt safe and my confidence grew', 'he's made me a better skier', 'he encouraged me', 'he really helped me', 'please can Nick teach us next year?'... so there you have it from the boys! There was a big improvement in the boys skiing and confidence and they really enjoyed their lessons and time together. Nick is a first rate professional ski coach and a great guy. Back to the boys, 'definitely definitely recommend'. Great job, thank you Nick and see you next year. Giles and Sa

Nick taught our 3 boys, ages: 6-8yrs, for 6x2hr morning sessions. They were able to confidently ski with the adults during the afternoons and they were doing parallel turns by the end of the week. There was great communication with Nick leading up to the holiday and during our time in Morzine. Our boys had a fabulous time and the whole experience was first rate!

Great lesson which Nick split-out for us as the boys were more advanced than I. The boys thrived on Nick's advice. Nick was very patient with me (a very nervous skier) . Thank you Nick!

My husband and I had 2hrs a day with Nick for the first few days of our skiing holiday hoping to get some pointers to work on for the rest of the week - it was worth every penny. He listened to what we wanted to achieve from the lessons and combined a nice balance of technical exercises to work on our weak spots with plenty of opportunity to put it into practice. He was very perceptive of our individual learning styles and gauging when to push our boundaries. We definitely improved and have the building blocks to work on for the rest of our week. Would recommend without any hesitation. Thanks Nick!

So good we booked another straight away! Seriously 3 hours with Nick is worth 3 weeks of standard ski school type lessons so please take my word its worth every penny. We were two Mums who really thought our ski-ing days were coming to an end but we went for 'one last trip' for our teenage sons ( age 12 & 13), but the lessons with Nick have restored our love of ski-ing and were equally enjoyed by our two fearless boys. We learnt so much and can't believe how one lesson can make such a difference, especially with all our bad habits!! Thank Nick :-)

Fantastic instructor that was friendly and reliable. As first time skiers we spent two mornings having lessons with Nick who taught us so much and got us on some good runs which set us up for a fabulous week of skiing. Would highly recommend!

Fortunate to have a lesson with Nick today. He was incredibly patient and helpful. I hope I can put into practice the advice he gave me. My experience with maison sport was very good and I would definitely use again.

Nick was a fabulous instructor and as a family we enjoyed our time with him very much. Nick was brilliant with our two children (age 13 & 11) - it was their 3rd time skiing and their confidence and skill by the end of the week was incredible, and they even went down the black mogul run called the Yeti with huge smiles on their faces! Huge thank you to Nick for being such a fun and patient instructor. Lessons were a joy with Nick and we looked forward to them every morning, so we would highly recommend him!!!!

Emma K.


This was the first time we booked an instructor/lessons through Maison Sport and I can honestly say it will be the first of many. I was a little apprehensive about the lessons before they commenced as I was sharing them with my two daughters aged 14 and 10 and whilst we are a similar standard we all like to go at different speeds. Nick managed the lessons really well giving all three of us the different things to work on, correcting each of our bad habits. As well as being an excellent professional instructor, he was a pleasure to spend the 2 hours lesson with each day, being a great mixture of calm and relaxed but interesting and chatty too.

Friendly, outgoing, kid friendly instructor who provided positive encouragement and helped my kids (aged 10.12.14) to transition from snow plow to parallel turns.

Nick was a patient and great instructor. I picked things up quickly and felt confident far sooner than I expected. I’m a complete beginner but after a few lessons I felt confident and keen to go skiing again! The lessons were fun and focused!

Our 11 year old daughter and 7 year old son had a fantastic week with Nick - not only did they really enjoy their lessons but their confidence after each lesson was always massively improved. Many thanks Nick for all your help and giving them such a great time.

Excellent. Professional, courteous and my kids couldn’t wait for their lessons with Nick. Will definitely book next year.

I started the day a complete beginner (and with a broken foot). Nick really helped build my confidence and I exceeded my expectations on what I could achieve with just a couple of hours skiing. Not bad considering I typically have two left feet!

Stuart B.


Nick was just brilliant. Over the week he turned my two nervous kids into happy and confident junior ski bums!

Tamzin S.


Nick was a hit with all of the children, they formed a great bond and he really understood each of their learning styles and personalities to bring out the best in them. He took our six children (5, 6, 7 and 8 year olds) in two groups for seven days and the improvement was remarkable, enabling us to ski as a group after only three days. Nick was flexible and worked with us to accommodate our timings and logistics. We felt confident that Nick was taking great care of our children. They were sad to be leaving the mountain, but they all said they will miss Nick the most!

Paul H.


Nick Robinson was brilliant for the lessons I had with him, after second day I had a lot more confidence in my skiing. Maison Sport is a highly professional business and highly responsive with any questions you may ask. I would highly recommend booking through Maison sport, and highly recommend Nick as an instructor. One to ones are most definitely the way to improve your skiing quickly.

Rhian K.


Nick was a great instructor and made our first experience of skiing with our 3 kids very enjoyable. He was flexible with structuring the time we had with him so that it could cover both our 3 year old as well as our 6 and 9 year olds who obviously progressed more quickly. The kids adored him and he was happy for us to tag along and enjoy watching the kids learn whilst not having to be in charge of them! Thanks again Nick

Nick is a great instructor, very patient and encouraging. He did a great job teaching my daughter (7 years) and her grandparents, all new to skiing. I would highly recommend him and would have no hesitation booking with him next time we return to the slopes.

I had 2 morning ski lessons with Nick, to restore my confidence on the slopes so I could enjoy skiing with my competent family! Nick succeeded in making it fun and not as terrifying as my last visit to the mountains. He was very patient and successfully enticed me down a Red run albeit only a short distance but an achievement for me.. I will definitely be returning. Rachel B

Mark L.


Great lesson. Unlike the other reviewers I'm an experienced skier looking for technical advice and feedback. Nick never disappointed. Having watched me for several runs he picked up several flaws which although subtle were important. We then went through several drills over runs of varying difficulty to practise and correct my changed technique. Im a strong believer that fresh eyes can pick up errors one may not be aware one has. Nick provided those eyes. Thanks. However good you are, you can almost always benefit from some friendly and informed advice!

I cannot thank Nick enough, I had 3 fantastic mornings improving my skiing. Nick is an excellent instructor, very easy to get along with and for the first time I actually enjoyed the skiing experience. Nick was excellent and I cannot recommend him enough, I can now ski with my kids!!!!! I also loved the Maison Sport web site. Thank you Nick :)

Natasha C.


Being an adult novice, with absolutely no skiing experience, ensuring I had a good, but also personable/fun instructor for the 3 days I was in Courchevel was really important, as I was going to be spending my time 1-2-1 learning. Nick did not disappoint, from the off he was enthusiastic, and always supportive and encouraging, putting me entirely at ease and enjoying myself. Clearly an expert skier, Nick flexed lessons around my progress which meant I was challenged, but always learning and building on my experiences. Nick is clearly very passionate about skiing, and a natural teacher with a wealth of knowledge and experience anyone could benefit from. I can’t recommend Nick highly enough, and I will absolutely be booking in more lessons with Maison Sport and him when I return.

Nick provided guided instruction during our recent stay in Les Arc 2000 - we are a mixed ability family with two very nervous skiers myself and my youngest daughter. We'd all skied before but were rusty - Nick was extremely patient and gave my daughter great coping mechanisms for when she was anxious on the slopes. He also managed to allow my husband and older daughter to push on and improve their skiing and confidence. It was great fun to be out with Nick who was great company and a good laugh as well as being a fantastic instructor. We would thoroughly recommend booking with Nick whatever your level and we love the ease with which the Maison Sport site operates. It is reassuring to know who you will be skiing with before you start your holiday.

My wife had a lesson and really enjoyed and built her confidence up again after a disaster on first day. She's now ready to push on and ski some harder runs.
