David is amazingly patient instructor, provided very detailed feedback on riding and guided on overcoming “steep slope anxiety” problem— amazing 3 hours, thanks to David!
My 9 yr old daughter had great 3-day sessions with Dave. The review below is from her: Dave was really nice and funny, and he taught me how to ski parallel in the red slopes from the beginner level in just three days! I definitely recommend him if you ever come to ski in Zermatt.
David was great! He helped me improve on my turns, technique and we tried switching was well. He was also technical and descriptive in his explanations throughout the lesson, which I really appreciated. He was on time at the meeting point and communicative prior to meeting. Amazing and knowledgeable instructor! Definitely would recommend.
david has been such a great help to improve, I feel more confident to ski more, loads of good advices. thanks again 😊
Very good explanations on what i was doing wrong and helped me improve greatly. Very respectful and friendly. Impressed with his knowledge on snowboarding technically and historically. Will definitely contact Dave again in the future for further skill development.
It was a pleasure to have David as our Instructor. We had both previously snowboarded many years ago and David made sure he took us to a place on the mountain that was suitable for our skill level. It didn’t take him long to work out what we could and couldn’t do and he adjusted his lesson accordingly to get us to where we needed to be: making turns and building our confidence. David gave us lots of information about the mountain and the logistics which was incredibly helpful for our time in Zermatt. Would highly recommend David if you are a snowboarding newbie or just need a refresher.
David is a very professional and experienced ski (sport) instructor. He is patient and good at explaining technical details. Step by step, but very quickly after 6 hours of skiing lessons with him, I gained the confidence as well as obtained the knowledge/technics to ski alone (and together) with him on the blue slopes. Would highly recommend him here and would also come back to him for future improvement! Worth it!
David was the PERFECT pick for my husband's ski lesson in Zermatt! He is punctual, patient, knowledgeable and professional. My husband learned a lot of new skills and concepts and is excited to use them next time on the mountain. Dave was very easy going and makes you feel comfortable and confident under his instruction. We were a little concerned initially about the lack of snow and conditions on the mountain, but it ended up being a wonderful time. Most importantly, Gregg, my husband had an absolute blast!! (& wants to keep up the lessons!) Dave has decades of techniques and experience as a snowboarder and skier...& is great instructor for all levels. I really hope we get to book him again!
Everything was great! David is a very friendly guy and my son Dennis Has a lot of fun! Everytime again and all the best for David!!! Michel and Family:-)
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
