I started skiing when I was really young and never stopped since. I've also been snowboarding for many years. After university, 9 years ago, I gained my teaching qualifications in Italy and made it my full time job. I really cannot see myself doing anything different: I love helping passionate skiers/snowboarders to improve their technique, guiding experienced freeriders to the best powder lines of the mountain, or just sharing my knowledge of the resort. I also really like helping beginners to enjoy their first experince on the snow and making kids lessons fun and safe, sharing such an important and joyfull time.
I always try to make my guests have the best experince, whatever their level, age or confidence, passing onto them some of my passion and knowledge, and I love doing it.
In the last 9 years I've been teaching in Italy, Switzerland, Australia, and France, this gave me the opportunity to travel all over the World and meet people from different cultures, learning to appreciate what is diverse and be open minded and flexible.
I love surfing, kitesurfing, sailing, mountainbiking and being outdoor. In fact I've been a kitesurf Instructor and a skipper on sailboats for a few years in Sardinia.
My current occupation in summer time is MTB guide. My wife and I have a little B&B and MTB rental in the beautiful inland of the Ligurian Riviera, where we live from May to November with our little daughter.

My experience with Luca was exactly what I needed. Luca improved my confidence significantly in just a few sessions and I am now very confident I can get down any colour of run, which I wasn't before. Luca was creative with his technical recommendations and was a very easy person to speak to when we weren't skiing. Highly recommend!

Luca was very patient and great for a beginner! I went from being very cautious and underconfident at skiing having never skiied before, to feeling confident with the basics of skiing and ready to ski alone. Luca made me feel very safe and was always on time and professional throughout. I would recommend Luca to anyone:)

Beginner

I last skied 30 years ago as a teenager. Rather than book group lessons and either feel I was going right back to basics or getting left behind I booked 3 x 2 hour lessons with Luca. I couldn’t recommend him more. He quickly assessed my ability and gave me clear instructions to focus on one thing at a time to build my confidence. In our second and third lesson he challenged me and gave me exercises and tips to improve my technique. By the end of our lessons I felt confident to tackle ski red runs knowing I could controlling my skiing. If I come back to Courchevel I would definitely book another lesson with Luca and will recommend him to friends.

Luca is very friendly, calm and knowledgeable instructor. We found his comments about our individual styles of skiing and the practice tips on how to improve them to be very useful.

Luca was fantastic with my kids and they always want to book with him every year we go. He was great fun and their skiing ability really improved over their time with Luca.

It was my first time ever skiing, even my first time in proper snow and I was somewhat nervous to start. Luca was really very patient, very professional as well as kind. He explained everything well , and helped to build my confidence and now I cannot wait to go back and continue my ski journey!

I’m learning to ski late at 51! Luca is brilliant he understood my fears and was very patient. He made me feel safe at all times and didn’t put any pressure on me. I learnt so much more with Luca and am looking forward to my next skiing holiday and will be requesting Luca for my next level. His English is perfect and he’s got a great sense of humour (it’s a good job)! My confidence has also improved. Thank you Luca....

FAQs
Where is the meeting point?

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
