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 "skibum tribe", as I consider myself a type of "ski bum" travelling, hunting, in search of best conditions. My all life is focused around mountain and nature, so it is natural that in summer I am a mountain guide.
Adapted teaching and tips to get more pleasure skiing in confidence.
We booked Jo for 4 days and split the days up between the group which included a less experienced adult and three children (9-13) who were all super keen. Jo was brilliant at all levels, she moved me from greens to confidently doing (most) reds, and enabled the kids to advance in a way they wouldn’t be able to with us. They would love to have lessons with Jo again. Fantastic - thanks Jo!

Anna Ellis booked a total of 4 hours with Jo
Jo taught a group of our children for 4 days and her passion for skiing was obvious. She took the kids off piste, through the fun parks, on jumps and helped them progress whilst having fun. Highly recommended!

Jo was brilliant - our teenage boys’ skiing improved enormously and they really enjoyed their lessons.
Alasdair McGregor booked a total of 9 hours with Jo
Had a 2 hour ski lesson with Jo to impove my ski technique and she was brilliant. Really good tips and very friendly.
Helen booked a total of 2.5 hours with Jo
We spent 5 mornings with Jo as a family group of 2 adults and 3 children (16,14 and 10). We are all intermediate skiers. I’m past years we have always gone to ski school but this year we decided we would get a private instructor. Jo was a fantastic instructor. She took the kids off by themselves for an hour or so each day to the snow park to do jumps and races etc which was brilliant. We also saw lots more of the ski area than we might have on our own. We all improved over the course of the week. Particularly the kids. All in all it was a brilliant experience and we will definitely do it again.
Tara booked a total of 15 hours with Jo
We had an excellent day with Jo. She was very patient and understanding of our requirements and we all achieved our goals for the day and had fun doing so. We wouldn't hesitate to book Jo again.
Jason Neal booked a total of 1 full day with Jo
Our two children went from not being able to ski on day one to being able to ski down blue runs by day two. Jo was flexible to what the children could/would do and was kind and friendly with them. She even took myself and my husband, and some of the extended family, for lessons as well. We would absolutely recommend her!
Tamsin booked a total of 3 full days with Jo
Brilliant ! Really enjoyed our lesson. Would definitely recommend Jo. Until next year !

Jo is brilliant, ironed out a few problems for my wife and I. Great terrain selection, great skill set and able to impart knowledge and offer guidance. Thoroughly recommend.
John booked a total of 2 hours with Jo
Excellent ! I would recommend Jo to anyone! Knows the slopes , techniques , we learnt so much and we will definitely book again ! Thanks Jo!
Nicola booked a total of 6 hours with Jo
Our family have had a fantastic week with Jo. She managed to balance the differing abilities of our group, from off piste and black for the kids, to blues for the parents. Jo was fantastic with the kids and we all loved our first experience of skiing in France.
Susan booked a total of 5 full days with Jo
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!
Katie booked a total of 2 full days with Jo
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.
Mark booked a total of 6 hours with Jo
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!
Thomas booked a total of 12 hours with Jo
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 :)
Lucinda booked a total of 8 hours with Jo
My wife and ten year daughter had four great days with Jo. As well as helping with technique, confidence building off piste and guiding, they had lots of fun. We would highly recommend Jo
Nicholas booked a total of 16 hours with 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.
James booked a total of 9 hours with Jo
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
Amanda booked a total of 2 hours with Jo
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.
nick booked a total of 18 hours with Jo
Jo communicated well prior to the lessons with a meet up point and was in time. The kids loved it and practiced all they had learnt after. Will use Maison Sport again

Jo was excellent. She was extremely patient and a great instructor.
Robert booked a total of 6 hours with Jo
Jo was absolutely brilliant and we really enjoyed her company as well as benefited hugely from the 4 days tuition. I cannot reccomend Jo highly enough and will definitely be booking again next time we are in Morzine. Andy
Andrew booked a total of 4 full days with 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
Joanne booked a total of 3 full days with Jo
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!
Rachel booked a total of 12 hours with Jo
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.
adam booked a total of 12 hours and 1 full day with Jo
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).
James booked a total of 3 hours with Jo
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!
Rebecca booked a total of 6 hours and 2 full days with 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!
Alex booked a total of 15 hours with Jo
Fabulous instructor. Highly recommended for all abilities.
Julie booked a total of 9 hours with Jo
First class and v understanding
David booked a total of 3 hours with 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.
Dean booked a total of 3 hours with Jo
Jo was brilliant - very patient and very clear with her instructions. Would recommend her to all ages
Lucy booked a total of 4 hours with Jo
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

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
