Hi! I'm John - I love to teach skiing.
I have been an instructor for 15 years, worked all over the world and have finally settled in Meribel, in the famous Three Valleys. I have great experience of running and managing a ski school and plenty of skiing pedigree having spent 10 years racing on the British National Team as an athlete.
I am a current BASI trainer and thoroughly enjoy passing on my knowledge to both ski instructors and my customer alike. I enjoy teaching anyone and everyone and will always have a smile on my face - come for a ski with me and learn how to enjoy the best sport in the world.
Drop me a message and let's hit the slopes – Jonny.”
All my lessons revolve around two priorities: staying safe and having fun! We will start every lesson with a few warm up runs on the pistes, then once I have a good idea of your ability I can plan the rest of the sessions to suit your goals. Whatever you want to achieve or explore, let me know and we can have a great time together.
We have now booked John for 3 years in a row and our children absolutely love every lesson with him. He's a great instructor, we can't wait for our next trip with him and we would recommend him 100%!
Absolutely amazing! As a first time skier I was very nervous but John made the whole experience seamless and most importantly, fun! By the end of our lessons, I was so much more confident and relaxed and now i'm really looking forward to keep on practicing and improving the skills that John has taught me. I couldn't recommended him enough as a ski instructor and I will definitely be booking him again next season - until next time!
We had a fantastic week in Meribel with John. My partner was a complete beginner but John really inspired confidence in her and by the end of the week she was even able to ski down red runs! I strongly recommend John as an instructor - he makes the lessons fun and he is very patient with beginners. We even shared a drink with him at the end of the week. We will definitely be booking him again next year.
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.
Any instructor that has a blue ‘verified’ tick icon on their profile has had their qualifications vetted and verified by the Maison Sport team, the level of qualification required to have a verified account on Maison Sport varies slightly by country. As follows: France – all verified instructors must carry a ‘Carte Professionelle’ licence, the qualification requirements for this licence are very high. The licence is administered by the French Government (to attain a Carte Professionelle most instructors will have studied for an average of 5 years+ to attain the correct level of qualification). Aside from requiring the instructor to have the highest level of qualification, which includes numerous teaching and technical performance diplomas in skiing or snowboarding, European mountain safety courses and the Euro speed test, the instructors are also required to have a criminal record check and a first aid certificate. Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Finland, Scotland, Spain – all verified instructors must carry a minimum level of qualification which must be at the ISIA card level or above. Instructors working independently must provide documentation to show they meet the local regulatory requirements to do so and instructors that are working for a ski school must provide details of the school they work for.
Unless otherwise agreed with the instructor no more than 6 people can take part in a lesson, each instructor will have 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
