Do want to learn skiing from scratch or refresh your memories?
Do you want to recover from physical traumas or simply be guided to discover the resort with few tips on the way?
Half or a full day?

There are places to explore and experience to live.
These experiences should be authentic and unique.
I won’t organize just a private or group lesson as traditional ski schools.
You will live and explore the mountains !
We will plan the day ahead together to make a perfect adventure.
I will calibrate the teaching to make your day !

The ski lesson includes:

1) Video footage to analyze good and bad habits. On the way up with lifts, it is an opportunity to see and analyze the videos, to improve body movements for your next run.
2) In the evening, a complete analysis of the videos is prepared to highlight the necessary technical improvements and exercises to be practiced. I will be available for questions and clarifications.
3) During the season, additional technical and educational tips are available by submitting LIVE videos and photo shoots. Continuous training is offered to my students.
4) Coming soon WIRELESS RADIO: two-way communication, hands-free, range 500 meters, to improve communication and technique LIVE with time optimization.

We booked Pietro for 2 days skiing for 7 people (all beginner level). Pietro arrived early and was very friendly and funny right from the ofset. He took us through absolutely everything, spending extra time with the children whilst ensuring us adults had 1:1 time with him too. His patience was tested often with our youngest (sorry again Pietro!) but his patience and determination to help us learn was spot on. Pietro was very good at adapting to each of our ability levels, we have grown in confidence and will be booking him again for next year! Thank you again Pietro!

Pietro was an amazing instructor, especially for our children (16 & 11). He was a fantastic support and guide, he helped us more than what we expected, he gave us lists of restaurants and booked for us wherever we chose to go, offered to help with ski passes to ensure all was cost effective, chose the right slopes and progress to help with the children’s development... they took to him really well... and so did we. We also took lessons with him, and he accommodated us as a family! I would definitely ask him again the next time we are skiing!... so lucky to have found him!

Pietro is an inspirational instructor for both of my boys, aged 9 and 6, who enjoyed every minute of the time they skied with him. He looked after both of them extremely well and taught my younger son how to ski in just a matter of hours. Pietro also helped me with my techniques, even as an advanced/experienced skier. I highly recommend Pietro for all levels of skiers as he has the ability to acceleration the speed at which you and your children will learn.

Pietro was awesome! We are a family of five and booked him last minute as we decided to take a 2-day trip to Chamonix coming from Verbier. My three boys range between 11-17 and Pietro took them both on and off piste to spots that were both very challenging and very safe. We had a big powder day and it was so fun! Thx Pietro!

I had a fabulous lesson with Pietro in La Thuile. My request was to gain confidence, ski in control and to have fun. Pietro delivered all of that (despite near zero visibility at times) and I could really appreciate the benefits of 1:1 coaching. I was sad when the lesson was over! My boyfriend came along for a freebie guide, adamant that he didn't want any coaching, but Pietro was so good that David was soon converted and picking up a few tips. David has since said: "Ski Pete is a very good instructor. We should ski with him again". Thanks Pietro xx

Pietro helped me to go from no skiing ability to being fully confident on a beginners' slope within just a couple of short lessons. He is a multi-faceted person, not "just" a skiing instructor and I felt completely comfortable spending time with him - he put me at my ease. He was able to explain very clearly what I should do and was encouraging when I got it right. The most important thing to know about Pietro is that he is a genuinely warm, friendly person. I couldn't have picked a better instructor.

Pietro was really helpful before the lessons started requesting information about what we wanted from the ski lessons/ our experience and sharing some tips for our first day of skiing at Cervinia. Pietro made sure we got the absolute maximum value from our lesson time, always patient, encouraging us to move out of our comfort zone and we have really made great progress in our 3 half day lessons. On the final day it was a lot more windy than forecast and there was a possibility that the lifts in Cervinia might not open at all. Pietro waited for local information, offered to meet us in Valtournenche and despite starting the lesson an hour late we still had our full 4 hours. We highly recommend Pietro

Nous avons commencé notre saison de ski avec Pietro comme moniteur et nous ne pouvions pas espérer mieux. Pietro a été extrêmement flexible et nous a cherché la meilleure station pour commencer la saison alors que peu étaient ouvertes. Mon garçon de 10 ans et sa jeune cousine qui skiait pour la première fois garde un souvenir lumineux de leur journée passée avec Pietro.

We just had a wonderful few days of lessons with Pietro and would recommend him without any hesitation at all to anyone looking to improve their skiing and have loads of fun at the same time! Our 7 year old son had 4 hour lessons with Pietro on 3 consecutive mornings and my husband and I alternated lessons with Pietro in the afternoons. We all improved enormously and had a brilliant time whilst doing so! Pietro was completely professional - he communicated with me prior to the first day to make sure that everything was clear re the meeting point/our level of skiing/any requests we had for the lessons. He was always punctual. Pietro is a brilliant teacher: my husband and I both felt we had made improvements from our limited time with Pietro and our son made massive strides, going from a cautious, rather scared skiier to someone who can now ski with confidence and absolutely loves it - a really huge turnaround. Pietro speaks excellent English and is just a really lovely person who is brilliant with children. He was a complete delight to deal with and to learn from. We will definitely book him again.

Pietro taught our kids whose comments are as follows: ‘Pietro was helpful and let us have a say on where we could go and what we could do. He also encouraged us to test our limits. He was very kind and chatty and we learned a lot. We definitely want him again next year! He knows lots of information about the mountains and told us lots of facts. His English is very very good.’

Pietro is one of lifes genuinely nice people, he has an amazing passion (and talent) for skiing and goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable whilst ensuring you are being pushed to the next level and improving technically. We were a group of 4 adults of slightly differing levels and he managed to take time to focus on each of us individually whilst making sure everyone was still progressing (and skiing) rather than just hanging around waiting (as we have experienced with other instructors/group lessons in the past). His unwavering passion to help you improve as a skier whilst still maintaining the fun is outstanding and as a group we all completely agreed that these have been the best 4 days skiing we have ever had. Pietro really is a great guy and we can't wait to ski with him again next year!

I first contacted Pietro a few days before I was due to arrive in Courmayeur with my 7 year old son. His communication skills are absolutely brilliant and extremely quick. I booked a 4 hour session with him to show us around the resort as well as refining our skiing techniques. Top class instructor, wonderful English spoken and in my opinion we will definitely use again when we visit next year. 5 Star service. Don’t delay book Pietro today.

Pietro was very communicative from the outset and on the first day took us from our hotel to rent our skis and buy our lift passes. My son loved being taught by Pietro he is a shy boy who we would have struggled to leave with a complete stranger but on day 2 he just went off no problem, and progressed more quickly than we could ever imagine. He also split his time and gave my wife a couple of lessons she went from a complete beginner to being able to go down a blue run in just 2 hours. We can't thank Pietro for the experience he has given my son and hope to book him again soon.

Pietro is a fantastic instructor with a friendly manner & heaps of experience. I am a nervous skier and Pietro has definately improved my confidence and my ability over the last few years. He has also been able to challenge my competent ski friends giving them the best experience the mountain has to offer as well as being incredibly patient with the kids! We would defintely book Pietro every year but be quick as he’s in demand!

We have used Pietro for since 2014. He has been an excellent instructor for our children, always patient, kind and fun. They love him. He has also taught me over the years and has offered invaluable advice. We wouldn't use anyone else. He has a particular flair for teaching children. They look forward to seeing him all year! I would recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent instructor who also understands how to make skiing fun for children.
