Hello, I'm Abi. I have been skiing in Courchevel since aged 3, the mountains are my home! I did lots of ski racing with both Courchevel ski club and the British team, where my favorite disciplines were Giant Slalom and Super G, the faster the better !
Along side my ski qualifications, I graduated with a Sports Science degree from Grenoble University. When I am not skiing in Courchevel, I live next to Lake Annecy.

I have been teaching skiing for 9 years now and enjoy teaching all levels of skiing from the little first timers to race techniques, or even just going for a blast through the tress off piste!

Please don't hesitate to get in touch for any more info! I am flexible with lesson times and meeting points (i.e. your lunch spot or hotel)

  • Excellent with all abilities
  • Great with beginners
  • Fun children’s lessons
  • Superb for intermediates
  • Fantastic with experts

Abi was a fantastic instructor and she was exactly what I needed as a very nervous adult beginner. It was more than just the technical skiing skills I learned from her - she introduced me to all of the tows and lifts and helped me understand the layout of the runs but most importantly she put me at ease. I would definitely recommend Abi and she would be great with all levels of experience I am sure. If I am every lucky enough to return to Meribel I will be looking her up again.

Abi was an extremely good teacher and has made my daughter and I feel a lot more confident, and satisfied, when skiing. Abi even took my daughter down the notorious Grand Couloir and she loved it! Not only that but Abi was friendly and chatty too - a brilliant instructor all round.

Abi was a fantastic instructor! She was wonderfully friendly and managed to teach a group of 6 of us of all different ages and abilities! We all managed to take a lot from each lesson. She managed to teach techniques which made things easy that I had struggled a lot with previously! One of our party was very nervous of skiing and the lifts. Abi was extremely good at reassuring her and calmly teaching her how to work through the fears practically. She was also great with our two 8 year olds. Who are quite difficult to handle with bucket loads of energy!! Thanks very much Abi for a great week!

I left my 2 girls with Abi, for two mornings and they had a fantastic time with her. They were complete beginners but came back from their lessons beaming with happiness and confidence in what they were doing. Both girls loved being with Abi and were very disappointed when they found out their lessons had finished, they wanted to be with her everyday. I don’t have enough praise for for Abi as an instructor and would recommend to everybody. Thank you from me, Olive and Delilah

I had a 1:1 skiing learning sessions with Abi for 3 days, 2 hours per day. She is kind and friendly, so I felt a strong sense of safety when I had lessons with her. Initially, I was a complete beginner to skiing. However, at the end of the course, I was able to do skiing parallelly rather than in unbalanced. She is enthusiastic, skilled and full of knowledge so I would recommend her to anyone. I would be happy to have more lessons with her as I enjoyed the lessons so much. Cheers, Jess Tong

Abi took my 9 year old daughter for 3 morning sessions in La Tania. My daughter absolutely loved her and was delighted to go off with her in the mornings. She progressed so much and increased in confidence to the point where she can now completely keep up with the older children in our group, and with better style too! Abi was just as warm and friendly as she looks, so smiley and fun, absolutely the sort of person you would want to teach your child to ski. Thanks Abi!

Abi was simply fantastic, and really worked hard to help our group of mixed ages, including a 6 year old. She was clear and supportive in her coaching and guidance, but also made it a lot of fun! She was attentive to those needing extra support and was able to keep tabs on everyone! She has enabled our group of 1st time skiera to be confident in the green runs in our area, and feel able to attempt the more challenging ones. Her extensive knowledge of the area enabled her to show us a few different runs that we could use and it made the rest of our stay even better, if returning to this area will definitely book Abi again!! Thank you!!

Abi is a complete STAR!! Just back from a week in Meribel where Abi very quickly brought our three 9/10 year olds boys, from complete beginner skiers to being able to complete a red run in just three morning lessons!! The boys absolutely loved her and we can't fault her - great communication throughout, always professional, very warm and personable. Such a joy to see our boys loving their skiing and having the confidence (& skills/control) to tackle anything!! Thank you Abi for the best start. We'll see you again I'm sure x

We booked Abi for 3 days to teach our grow of 3 14 year old girls. Absolutely great experience. Booking like this is more expensive than ESF but a world of difference. Wish we'd tried it years ago. Abi was great fun and the girls developed so much over those 3 days. Thank you!
