I am a local originally from the Savoyard Alps in Beaufortain. I did free-ride competition, got the ski patrol diploma and i am a ski builder under the name of "bumtribe", wich simply translates as "skibum tribe" as i consider myself a type of "ski bum" travelling, hunting, in search of best conditions. My all life is focused arount mountain and nature, so it is natural that in summer i am a mountain guide.

  • Great with beginners
  • Superb for intermediates

Jo was a fantastic teacher. My two boys really enjoyed their lessons with her and she really taught them a lot. They would want to use her again so that is the best feedback!

Jo was super. We have four children (aged 14, 12, 10 and 7) and Jo was brilliant with them all. She was also very adaptable as during the course of the week we decided to have Jo take one or more of the children and then swap yo take some of the others after lunch. This worked really well and Jo was great at not only accommodating this but also making positive suggestions as to what the children needed and what would work best. We all enjoyed our time with Jo and would definitely book to ski with her again.

Jo is simply fantastic! We provided her with 3 children all of a pretty decent standard and experience but ranging in age from 7-11 and they simply loved being with her! Jo managed to spend her time improving each child individually whilst also ensuring the others didn't lose focus. They went on some amazing Pistes around the area and had a great time! "Best Instructor Ever" were George's words!

My 10 year old daughter, who was a complete beginner, had 1-2-1 ski lessons with Jo over a long weekend. Jo was fantastic. I couldn't believe how much my daughter learnt over the course of the weekend. My daughter really enjoyed her lessons and Jo was a great companion on the slopes too. We would recommend Jo very highly and even consider coming back to Morzine / Avoriaz to get more ski tuition with her next season! Thank you Jo :)

Jo taught my two kids (9 & 11), wife and me. We were absolute beginners on day one, and felt comfortable on most slopes by the end of day three. She was patient but also pushed us enough to learn and improve. I would 100% recommend.

Jo did a first ever snowboarding lesson with our 9 year old daughter who loved it! Arranging meeting up was easy and our daughter had a great experience with her and was keen to get back on a board the following day - cant say better than that! Thanks

We had 3 new skiers in our group which Jo taught. She created a great atmosphere for them to learn in, with great technical coaching. They all achieved more that I expected thanks to Jo.

We are so glad that we booked lessons with Jo. She is an excellent teacher and guide and a font of knowledge of the local area. Jo was wonderful with our children, improving their technique and instilling in them great confidence. Jo is also lovely company and it was a pleasure getting to know her. So much more valuable than ski school, we cannot recommend Jo highly enough. Thank you! x

Our 3 children and a friend’s child (aged 12,11, 9 and 9) had an amazing week skiing with Jo. They all improved so much. She pushed them to do things that they were lacking in confidence with. I also had an hour with Jo. She is highly recommended for both adults and children and we will go back to Avoriaz just to use her again!

Jo was excellent. She looked after our kids (11, 8 &6) well, and was very flexible, working around our plans. The kids all progressed and are showing great improvement after a week of lessons with Jo. We highly recommend Jo to any family looking for lessons for a group with mixed abilities.

Jo pushed my kids outside their comfort zones, provided constructive criticism, challenged them, and made them better skiiers (according to my children aged, 10,12,14 as I was not in attendance).

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Les Arcs. We booked Jo for 2 half days and 2 whole days to help improve our 9 and 12 year old girls. I can’t believe the confidence she gave them to get down any slope and get us skiing as a family so quickly. Jo’s knowledge of the area and mountain also made for a fabulous day touring the piste and finding wonderful lunch stops. Highly recommend Jo!

Jo was fabulous! She took our three kids aged 8-11, their skiing improved incredibly, even after the first session, and they had loads of fun. By the end of the week their confidence and ability were sky high! Jumps, off piste, powder skiing and hot chocolates!! We would definitely recommend Jo, and will be sure to book her again if we visit Les Arcs again. Thank you Jo!

Jo is very patient and breaks down the ski lesson into solving one problem at a time. Each run she gives your something to work on and it builds up throughout the lesson. I would definitely recommend her and use be calling Jo next time I am in Morzine.

She was incredible. Very knowledgeable tutor and very social. She completely puts you at ease and tells a lot of enjoyable stories. I learned a lot and now I have a better knowledge of the technical aspects of skiing. It was a blast. Jo B also went outside her allocated time to continue skiing with me which was incredibly kind of her. I would reccomend her to anyone. My only criticism would be to have a start time of 9:15/9:20 instead of 9:00. This is because of the finicular. Jo B is AMAZING

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
