Alan is a very likeable bloke and extremely knowledgeable about skiing and being in the mountains in general. I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson with him and would absolutely recommend him.
Uncle Al was amazing! He made me feel comfortable and was very patient with me. I was able to do Red by the end of our lessons and I started (very timidly) on greens. I highly recommend him- also the kitkat and mars bars were good bribe on cold but sunny mornings.
My sister and I booked 3 half day skiing lessons with Alan this January in Val D’Isere. I have skied 6 times and was looking to improve my technique to better equip me to get down steeper slopes more effectively. I can highly recommend Alan’s instruction as my technique definitely improved over the 3 days. He also kept the right balance between teaching and between skiing so we got to see a lot of the ski area.
Four of us booked Alan for 4hour ski lessons each morning between the 31st December 2017 and 5th January2018,unfortunately due to bad weather the ski lifts were closed for 2days.
However we were delighted with Alan ,he kept us informed all the time and did his best.
He is a nice chap and knows the slopes well and we would definitely recommend him and use him again.

Alan was a great instructor. My son was a novice skier and made great progress with Alan. He was very patient and had a very relaxed and calm manner. His very detailed knowledge of the area and slopes and made us feel relaxed and at ease.
Thanks Alan, you are highly recommended.
Fantastic instructor! The session was well planned, and tailored to my individual needs.
We were a group of 4 novice skiers. Alan took the time to help each of us individually and was patient with us at all times, despite the many falls we experienced! He was a great help and our confidence grew throughout the week. He never clock watched and we got full value out of our time with him.
Although I have being skiing for many years, I was looking to improve. After two hours with Alan, I was able to enjoy the harder challenges on the slopes and got much more fun out of my skiing. Thanks Alan (its all in the feet!).
Alan is gentleman of the highest order! we were a group of 7 total beginners male & female. He was every patient with everyone in the group, and allowed everyone to develop at their own pace. Alan Also he has a great sense of humour and his love of teaching skiing was evident from the first day. See you next year
Alan is the real deal. Very zen, very experienced and supportive and he knows these mountains like the back of his hand. Will be back for more...
