One of the most highly qualified snowboard instructors in the uk and one of only a handful of snowboard specific instructors in the 3 valleys. I like to increase overall understanding of snowboarding by looking at how each of our movements and body positions directly influence how the board reacts and performs, this leads us to be able to get maximum output from minimum input resulting in effortless relaxed high performance riding.Whether you are looking to improve piste performance and carving, freeride techniques and experiences or freestyle I can provide coaching to take you to the next level. Split boarding introduction and guiding also available.

  • Excellent with all abilities
  • Great with beginners
  • Patient with improvers
  • Superb for intermediates
  • Off piste expert

I booked Jono for 3 x 3 hour lessons for my 14 year old son and I. I had boarded before but my son was a beginner. He had my son linking turns on his second day and gave me a massive amount of confidence and helped to correct my bad habits! Jono was so laid back and patient, he is obviously an amazing boarder but we didn't feel intimidated, he explained things really well and was good fun and great company. I cannot recommend Jono highly enough for a mum needing confidence and a teenager with no fear! We will definitely book Jono again.

I still remember the wonderful ski holidays that I have spent with my friend in Courchevel 1850. Jono is a very patient instructor. We progressed gradually and smoothly and built our essential skills for beginners. Jono not only showed us how to ride on snowboard, but also gave us a very detailed illustration of how the a snowboard is working. Very good experience with Jono, highly recommended!

Jono did 3 boarding lessons with my 10 year old son and the difference from start to finish was fantastic. Money well spent. He was friendly, easy to communicate with to make arrangements and very knowledgable. Thank you Jono!

We booked Jono to give our 10 y.o., Fraser, his first intro to snowboarding for 5 consecutive morning in Dec 2019. Jono was excellent form start to finish - he was prompt to respond to enquires, flexible in arranging sessions and Fraser loved his lessons and progressed far more than we ever hoped in the week. Fraser was very comfortable with Jono from the start and alway came back full of technical tips and guidance that he had been given in that session and was raring to go for the next one. Can’t fault the service we received and will definitely be back next year when the next child takes up boarding.

During our holiday in La Tania my partner and I booked 3 lessons with Jono, we are both beginners who have limited experience in snowboarding. overall we were in need of confidence and pointers with our terrible cornering technique. I honestly can not recommend Jono enough, he was patience, knowledgeable and very helpful. Under his guidance I have improved leaps and bounds. My corning ability at the start of the week was basically non existence, where I was basically doing all runs on just my toes. However I finished the week being able to string together a full run with cornering on both my heels and toes. We will be booking with him again next year.

Jono was fantastic with my 10 yr old who was just starting on a snowboard, he made the lessons both fun and instructive. He also provided me with some excellent advice so that I could improve my technique as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson with Jono and felt that I gained a lot from it. By the end of the lesson I felt a lot more comfortable doing my turns which enabled me to explore more the mountain. Jono was friendly and pleasant and I felt comfortable which is always important when you are learning. When I go back next year I will have no hesitation booking another lesson with Jono to improve my boarding further

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.

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
