What to expect in a lesson

I am very passionate about snowboarding and my main goal is to let you have as much fun as possible on that beloved board!

I can teach you from the basics to the advanced riding and freestyle, I can be very technical and at the same time super easy to understand.
Video analysis will help to improve even faster.

Let's have some snowboarding fun together!

Ettore was very helpful and gave a lot of feedback after every practice. Being an absolute beginner, he helped me build confidence and after half a day of lesson, I have became more confident of boarding in my own. Highly recommend if you are looking a snowboard instructor!

Ettore è il mio maestro di snowboard e wakeboard da 3 anni e lo consiglio davvero a chiunque: dalle prime curve ai trick complessi. 1. Crea fiducia. Comprende le tue capacità, spesso meglio di te stesso. Se ti dice che puoi provare qualcosa, hai davvero le capacità per farlo, anche se ancora non ci credi. 2. È tecnico. Riesce a scomporre ogni manovra e trick in gesti semplici. “Per fare frontside shifty, pensa solo ad avvicinare il ginocchio che sta dietro alla mano che sta davanti”. 3. È attento. Ti sa dire come hai mosso il gomito mentre eri dalla parte opposta della pista e uno sci club ti passava davanti. Sul serio. 4. Sa davvero fare i trick. Gli ho visto chiudere 720 (due giri su se stesso, in aria) e molto, molto altro.

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.
