More than a ski instructor, first of all I'm a skier. I skied many mountains around the world, in Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland, France, Germany, Andorra, Norway, Greece, Chile and Argentina. I do every kind of lesson, from beginner to expert, making it funny for kids and
technically exhaustive for adults. Teaching is a big passion, the mountain is such a wonderful office. I'm also specialized in off-piste, I love to discover and show the real mountains to my clients, from inside, by skinning up, by taking them in proper backcountry terrains. In order to improve the technique it is essential to relax, stay safe and follow correct instructions.
My big passion is for the mountain itself, I'm a mountaineer, I like climb to ski, steep skiing, but also carving, slalom, telemark and moreover, rockclim***, slacklining and all the activities connected. Many competitions in my skiing background. Before, in alpine ski races, later in freeride. I won the Italian freeride tour in 2010 and got the chance to travel around Europe to attend the Freeride World Qualifier. Since then I never stopped, actually I keep on trying to add skills to my competences. Telemark, skitouring, freestyle, every kind of skiing is an attraction to develop, to work on and most of all to enjoy. On another hand, I've been working in the mountain world by collaborating and writing for an Italian ski magazine, named "Ski Alper", with the role of tester, traveller, reporter, photo and videomaker. I use to film and edit videos for my self and for different sport companies, participated in many events and festivals aroud the Alps and the Andes. I worked for different ski schools in Dolomites and France, discovering and learning from different methods, people and collegues, exchanging knowledge and sharing passions with other professionals.

Niccolo was an incredible instructor! He was diligent with respect to watching my technique and gave plenty of constructive advice. Niccolo provided plenty of drills which we practiced. I can continue to practice them for the rest of the week. We explored different regions and he helped develop my geographical bearings. He was very friendly. Overall I had an amazing time and I would highly recommend him as an instructor!

Go ahead and book Nico to be your ski instructor - you won't regret it! Nico was great on and off the slopes. It was very easy to communicate with him before the trip and arrange a time and place to meet. He was also super friendly during the lessons, whilst managing to provide great technical feedback and lots of drills to help me practice my new skills. To put it into perspective I had finished my last ski trip being able to ski blues and some easier reds; by the end of the first day in Tignes I was skiing reds and easy blacks - all of this progress thanks to Nico's patience, precise feedback and encouragement. Thank you Nico!

Technical instruction and explanation was very good, easy to understand and put into practice, structured lessons to meet my capability but also offer some challenges to progress my ability. Very friendly, supportive and helpful.

Nico gave our 12 and 19 year old snowboard lessons. Nico made the lessons fun whilst teaching them a great deal. It has given them the confidence to ride blue, red and black. They really enjoyed the lessons, thank you Nico!

Nico is a lovely expert tutor who brought our family of 4 from snow novices to boarding a red run in just four mornings. Patient, knowledgeable, inspiring and super friendly and positive. Fantastic with the kids. Highly recommended!

Both my children (aged 9 & 12) had Nico for 5 days of lessons last week (w/c 1st April 2018) along with 3 of their friends. He was awesome! All 5 children really loved him, said they learnt lots but was also really fun and showed him lots of new experiences e.g. off piste, snow canyoning etc. They all found him to be kind and although it was very physical and challenging, really enjoyed it. My daughter commented on how patient he was with her, especially as she was the weakest skier of the group. Giving her piggy backs and pushing her along on flat parts. The best part as a parent was the photos he sent at the end of each day of the children and where they had been during their lesson. He is a great photographer & it was so nice to have an idea of what they had been up to in the 3 hours they were apart from us. He was also flexible about meeting points allowing us adults to explore other parts of the mountain. I would highly recommend!

Can not recommend Nico enough, fantastic instructor! I booked a single 3 hour lesson and we discussed at the beginning what my objectives were. We then spent the lesson working on exercises that would help me achieve those objectives and even left me with the tools to be able to go away and continue to practice and develop independently. This was all done in a way that was great fun, working on and off piste and using jumps, half pipe, moguls to drive different aspects home. A perfect lesson!

Nico was amazing and a very helpful instructor! I had never ski before and after the first 30 mins managed to go up and down confidently. He made the lesson super fun and wasnt strict on finishing dead on time! He took us to our lunch reservation too. Would highly recommend Nico, he makes the lesson fun and breaks it down so its easy to understand!

My lesson with Niccolo was a lot of fun. We skied some pretty challenging pistes and he kept me going and gave me a lot of tips. He’s a fun guy too. Well worth having a lesson with him.

We had SO much fun with Niccolo. I had three instructors throughout the course of the week and my lesson with him was the most enjoyable by a mile. His teaching style was quite playful and I found I picked things up quickly as I was having so much fun. He is fantastic at spotting mistakes in your technique and makingb6je corrections fun. My confidence improved dramatically as a result!

I spent several days skiing with Nico, I needed to build up my confidence on steep and I was surprised of the result. His instructions were so necessary to me, thanks to him I could change my attitude and finally relax, enjoying the pleasure of skiing! Looking forward to ski with Nico again, I definitely recommend him if you want to start loving skiing!

Andrew G.


Nico was amazing! He took a 7, 8 and two eleven year olds for four days and they not only grasped skiing, they all excelled by being willingly encouraged to test the boundaries of the sport. Nico’s attitude was fantastic bounding in every morning to children who couldn’t wait to stride into the next lesson. Photo and video memories were WhatsApp’d to some proud parents. Personally, totally satisfied. The kids, however, totally disappointed that the lessons had to stop. Thank you!

Niccolo was fabulous. He was on time in the mornings and made the lessons fun for our girls. He is a very attentive instructor and tries very hard to make the lessons as comfortable as possible. The girls came on extremely well and we were amazed at their progress after just one session.

Niccolo is an excellent instructor and I cannot recommend him enough. He taught my two daughters and three nephews (aged 18, 17, 16, 15 and 12) for 3 half days in early January 2018 and they had the best time ever. My daughters have hated most of their other ski lessons, but these they loved, wanted more and their skiing improved significantly. Nico was instructive, patient and encouraging and made the whole experience hugely enjoyable for them all. I wouldn't hesitate to use Nico!

We had a superb time skiing off-piste with Niccolò, he is a phenomenal instructor and freeride guide, I would highly recommend him both for instruction and guiding. We will definitely book him again.
