after years teaching in schools, I decided to work has a full independant teacher.
i've spent my all life on skis from 1 year old to now, from racing to freeriding with a bit of freestyle and touring in between those. teaching came naturally, coming from a ski familly helps. That's now 22 years , that I'm living and teaching in val thorens and the 3 vallées, grab a good knowledge of those mountains from winter to summer, automn and spring. mountain activities are a passion.

  • Excellent with all abilities
  • Great with beginners
  • Fun children’s lessons
  • Off piste expert
  • Brilliant local knowledge
What to expect in a lesson

to pay attention and listening, to bring new knowledge, to ski safely, and to have pleasure with fun on the mountains are priorities in my theaching

The lessons were for 4 children aged between 4 and 6. Brice was so good with the children. He was very friendly and made the children feel really comfortable. This was their first skiing trip and the progress they made in 6 days was amazing. They were doing blue runs by the end of the week, all thanks to Brice’s teaching. If we go back to Val Thorens we would definitely have Brice teaching the kids again. Thanks!

We really enjoyed our lesson with Brice. There were three of us all on our second time skiing and fairly nervous. Brice was excellent at recognising this and easing us into the lesson while also providing all the technical information we needed to improve. Would recommend Brice for anyone else looking to improve their skiing as he was great at really giving you personalised tips.

I booked three lessons with Brice for myself, one of my friends, and my 15 year old daughter. We all thoroughly enjoyed the three mornings, and all progressed well with our skiing techniques. Brice was excellent at tailoring the feedback for our individual needs, in an easy to understand and entertaining manner, and without providing too much information and confusing advice. We will definitely book more lessons with Brice next year!

Brice taught 6 beginner children aged 8 to 12. From the start he was patient, relaxed, kind, relentlessly positive and encouraging. The children loved him and made incredible progress in 5 days. We felt very relaxed leaving the children in his capable hands. We can’t recommend him highly enough, he was brilliant! We were very lucky to find him.

Brice was incredibly engaging, knowledgeable about the Mountains and ski conditions and patient with a mixed ability pair (novice and beginner). We improved massively during the week and exceeded our expectations and goals. We would not hesitate to recommend Brice as a thorough and professional guide. We will definitely book him again on our next Trip.

Brice is really friendly and gave individual instruction to our family. He is very knowledgable about the resort. He showed our 12 and 15 year olds some off-piste & jumps too which they loved. We would definitely recommend Brice, we all improved our skiing so much, meaning we could ski the rest of the week on our own!

I had 3 morning sessions with Brice. I'm not the most confident adult skier and we had really bad weather for most of my lessons and Brice was very patient with me, always making me feel confident that I was going to be ok getting down the slopes with zero visibility. He read the situation and how I was feeling and adjusted the pace of the lesson accordingly. Always giving me technical advice on how to manage the snow in the challenging conditions. I would definitely recommend him and I will be reaching out to him again next year to remind me how to ski all over again.

Brice was a brilliant instructor all round! We had difficulty getting to Val Thorens because we were staying in Les Menuires and Brice very kindly agreed to come to Les Menuires instead. Brice had excellent English, was friendly, good at explaining instructions, had a good sense of humour and didn't judge us when we kept falling! It was our first time skiing and by the end of the 6 hours, we had managed one of the blue slopes. I would definitely recommend Brice to anyone learning how to ski for the first time. Merci encore Brice!

we had some great lessons from brice. we were first time skiers on this trip (both have snowboarding experience). Brice took us through the basics and some more advanced techniques, adapting nicely to each of our levels. this gave us much more confidence to hit the slopes on the days he was no longer with us. great experience and we would surely recommend Brice to anyone wanting to improve his skiing, whatever the level they have. greets Tim&Ann

We are an English speaking family of 4 with different abilities (one of us a first time skier) and we spent 15 hours with Brice. We told him what our objectives were and by the end of our lessons we were all skilled sufficiently to enjoy the rest of our ski holiday together. Brice's English is excellent, he is patient and good humoured and able to communicate effectively with us all as individuals. Brice lives in Val Thorens so he is very familiar with Val Thorens and the 3 Vallees and he was able to show us appropriate routes and some excellent piste side restaurants. Thank you Brice!

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?

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.

How many people can take part in the lesson?

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

How do I book?

If you are on a desktop computer or laptop, you will see a box on the right hand side of the screen which contains various lesson options and pricing, simply select the lessons you would like and then click 'Book now', then follow the instructions to make payment.
