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) This winter WIRELESS RADIO: two-way communication, hands-free, range 500 meters, to improve communication and technique LIVE with time optimization.
Get in TOUCH for particular requests and slots.
Teaching available all over the Alps.
When starting a session, please expect to be asked about your goals, objectives and skiing history.
Do not worry if you don’t know what those are, we will find the way for a constructive conversation to help find out what you need and want from the lesson.
There is no test for ability or pressure to be added, throughout these conversations and some skiing we will make up an action plan for our sessions.
Sometimes is very easy, like being guided to top lunch table of the resort; other times guests have more technical aims.
Regardless, lessons will be tailored to your need as individual skier and not sticked to my pre-planned agenda.
From session, you will learn from explanation, demonstration, practice and video.
You are free to follow me, be followed or being asked to find your way down the valley freely, picking up your route.
Style of lesson is flexible to suit your learning capabilities, needs and abilities; you can expect what you really want with good chat and lots of fun, promise!
Pietro was everything we didn’t know we needed, and then some. Difficult to pinpoint a strength, as gr has so many. We were first timers and Pietro hand amazing patience. His teaching started even before we met face to face as he guided us through everything. He is really friendly, very adaptive to our needs and had an amazing sense of how much to push us out of comfort zone. He was there every step of the way, encouraging and pushing us. He did not settle for anything less than a smile on the slope. Add his impecable English and how friendly he is, and you get more than you would ever expect. Not only we strongly recommend Pietro, but we are definitely going to keep learning with him. If you’re reading reviews for choosing an instructor, do not hesitate and message Pietro, you will not regret it.

Pietro is such a nice person and great instructor- had a full day with Pietro - the children and my confidence turned completely- learnt lots. In fact from having a refresher on the learner slopes, the children was ready for red slopes. Would Reccomended and rebook. Amazing gentleman and great English. Thanks Pietro 😊
Jo banks booked a total of 1 full day with Pietro
I booked Pietro through Maison sport as the local ski school could not accommodate our specific requirements, the children would have been split up and placed into large groups. Our family group comprised of very mixed ages and abilities. I booked Pietro for six full days from 10am to 3pm for those that had never skied. He taught five children on a daily basis ages ranging from 4yrs, 6yrs, 8yrs, 10yrs, 13yrs sometimes with the addition of two adults 40+ and 50+ also beginners. I have never seen such keen, animated children who listened intensely but enjoyed the fun lessons. They couldn’t wait to get on to the slope each day. Pietro was brilliant with each child, he greeted them individually each morning, then they did warm up sessions. By mid-week they could all use the button lifts unaided. By the end of the week they were all skiing down Green runs and touching across the bottom of a blue run. Pietro was incredible, great communication, patient, animated and such good fun, I would highly recommend him.
Liz booked a total of 6 full days with Pietro
We booked a private lesson with Pietro for our family of 4, all with varying levels of technical ability and all wanting to improve our technique. He was great, communicative and friendly both before and during the lesson. We would book with Pietro again and would recommend him to others.
Jennie Freeman booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
It was our first time to Morzine and our first time on the slopes. Our three children (aged 13,10 and 8) had never even put a pair of skis on. We had two four hour lessons with Pietro. He began by showing us how to check our boots and skis, practise balancing on the skis and telling us how to stand up if we fell over. From there he took us on the nursery slopes. By the end of the first day we were all skiing with confidence. Pietro was really patient, encouraged us all and offered enough of a challenge to keep our adventurous kids on their toes, whilst also making sure us adults were keeping up! By the end of the second day we had been down a blue run and part of a red run. Confidence was high with the result that we were able to navigate the routes ourselves on our final day. Pietro was great with all of us. He encouraged us and gave us the confidence to challenge ourselves. The whole experience was really positive. We now all have the skiing bug! Thanks for all of your help Pietro and see you next year!

Anthony booked a total of 1.75 hours with Pietro
Pietro exceeded all our expectations as an instructor! Despite our group of five being at different ski levels, he managed to give each of us tailored advice and further our abilities. He helped us to build up a great deal of confidence in a very short amount of time. Always on time, friendly and very quick to respond in communication. Pietro was excellent with our three little boys. He has so much patience and gave the children great advice not only about skiing technique but also staying safe on the slopes. We very much look forward to booking more lessons with Pietro in the future and would highly recommend him.
Lorna booked a total of 7 hours with Pietro
Pietro is an excellent ski instructor. Great communication skills and it was a pleasure spending the whole day with him (6 hours). My son an I only had 3 days in Chamonix and we were at a very different ability level. My son was a nervous beginner, still in snow plough and it was my first time back skiing since Covid. Pietro really pushed my son, giving advice, encouragement and kept increasing his confidence as he got better and better. My son went from snow plough on green runs to parallel skiing on blues in one day. I improved my carving technique and really got the feel for taking my skiing to the next level. Pietro set us homework and is even available for questions and advice after your lesson is finished. On days 2 and 3 we were skiing the whole Chamonix Brevent-Flégère mountain, and we covered over 120 kilometres in distance. We were even skiing all the Red runs together! Thanks Pietro, you really made our short ski trip something special! 🙏🏻
Kerry booked a total of 1 full day with Pietro
My wife and I skied with Pietro for 2 days. We found him to be very friendly and a fantastic instructor. Keeping things simple to understand that produced great results. He helped to build confidence and make the most of our days. We have both improved drastically thanks to Pietro and we will be booking with him again for next year. A great instructor but also very good company. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Kevin Simpson booked a total of 4 hours and 1 full day with Pietro

Claire Buckeridge booked a total of 8 hours with Pietro
Working with Pietro was the best ski coaching experience I've had... As a low-level intermediate, he was patient and able to both build my confidence and improve my skills by focusing on the most impactful changes I could make. The challenge I've had with previous coaches is they tend to focus on so many different things at once that it becomes overwhelming and you spend too much time analysing every move. He was great at focusing on one thing with a couple of secondary elements, but practicing the one thing a couple of times to build confidence and hone the technique, and then just a general ski run down to enjoy the improved skiing capability. With his approach, I was able to significantly improve my skills in a short period of time and was then able to coach others the remainder of our weekend there. When I'm in the region again, I will absolutely hire Pietro again. Tremendously grateful for his guidance and the confidence he helped me build!
Marcus booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
Getting ready for my ski lesson and fell down the stairs breaking my foot, not the best start! Pietro was amazing, he drove to our apartment and took me to the medical centre and waited with me until I was seen by a dr. So my lesson will have to wait until January 2024. Two sons have not stopped raving about their lesson with Pietro. They have been skiing since 4 years old (now 25 and 29) and with one lesson they have the confidence to ski blacks and even went off piste, to say they are thrilled is an understatement, they could not compliment Pietro enough, apparently he is awesome and the best teacher ever, having not had a lesson for 15-20 years, it just shows what one lesson with the best instructor can make.
Rachel booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
Excellent teacher! We had our daughters and friends visiting and had booked ski classes as all had not been skiing for some time and wanted to feel comfortable again on skis. Pietro was very responsive and communication ahead of the first class was super easy. During the classes he could flexibly adapt to the different needs and capabilities; and they all made a lot of progress. Pietro also showed them different ski areas, which they liked a lot. We will certainly try to book time with Pietro again when we are back in the area.

Adele martin booked a total of 8 hours with Pietro
Pietro joined me, my husband and two of our daughters (14 and 12) for 2 mornings. He was friendly, engaging, perceptive of our needs and an excellent communicator (fluent English). While we can all ski similar slopes, our skiing abilities vary. Pietro provided individual feedback and tips to improve our skiing. We had a very successful 2 days, which improved our skiing and made the rest of the week more enjoyable for all of us. Pietro was booked up for the rest of our stay, or we would have looked for another session. I would highly recommend Pietro and be happy to book him again if we are back in the same area.
Ruth Epstein booked a total of 3 hours with Pietro
Perfect introduction for a cautious beginner. Pietro definitely gave me the support and confidence to be able to enjoy my first ski lessons and building the foundation to advance on the slopes. I would have booked more lessons if he wasn’t already booked out. So make sure you book in advance! :)
Jim booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
I had a great lesson with Pietro, he was very patient and gave me lots of helpful tips to help me progress with my skiing. Pietro also took video footage to help show me how to improve my skiing. I would 100% recommend Pietro. I fully enjoyed every minute of my lesson.
Lauren Cody booked a total of 2 hours with Pietro
Pietro was an amazing coach. I spent a full day with him last Saturday and he brought me from being a VERY nervous beginner holding onto his poles, to be able to ski down the trappe green route in Flegere independently. Very happy and would highly recommend him. He was kind, understanding and appropriately challenging. Pietro … you will be glad to hear that I spent the following two days going up and down continuously practicing and improving with each run. Helen
Joseph Haire booked a total of 1 full day with Pietro
Excellent communication with Pietro prior to lesson due to lack of snow… so plan was made to do lesson in Avoriaz instead. I was a complete beginner and I learnt a lot in my session with Pietro who taught me the basic techniques to set me up. It was a lot of fun and I would highly recommend Pietro.. he’s a great guy!
Lucy booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
Pietro was the perfect guide for us in Cervinia, Chamonix, and Zermatt! Provided expert guidance and was patient in also giving helpful ski tips. Went above and beyond to help us find great snow and a great experience. Highly recommend Pietro to anyone looking for an expert guide and instructor.

From the very first moment we met it was clear that Pietro was an absolute professional, great company, super observant, excellent teacher and gave huge confidence to all abilities.
Katherine Blacker booked a total of 1 full day with Pietro
Pietro was an excellent teacher and really enjoyable to be with over our 3 day visit to Chamonix.. and Courmayeur. He looked after every aspect of our ski day from working out the best place to ski - taking in to account weather and how busy it might be. This meant we had a beautiful sunny day by going through to Italy instead of staying in France where conditions were awful. My son, 18 years old, really advanced in his skiing ability from Pietro’s advice. Can’t recommend Pietro enough, he is a real gentleman who takes pleasure in looking after you. Thank you Pietro, we hope to ski with you again soon!
Mark booked a total of 3 full days with Pietro

Ailing Jeavons booked a total of 12 hours with Pietro
We booked our lessons with Pietro a couple of weeks before our trip to Zermatt. During that time, Pietro was always in touch with us to check if we had all the information we need, he was very informative and resourceful. He helped us plan our trip to the smaller detail. I actually had booked lessons with Pietro for my kids however he was kind enough to include my husband as well as improve my skills! I’m so glad I got to work with Pietro and I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family. Thank you Pietro❤️
Dalal booked a total of 8 hours with Pietro
The following review is dictated by our children who are 10 and 12 and never skied before. Pietro was an amazing teacher, built up our confidence, really fun. Taught us how to go from snow plough to parallel in one day. Day 2 we were going down red runs and doing jumps. His English was really good as he made the lessons over 2 mornings really good fun. Message from parents: Pietro, Andrew and I were so pleased our children had such a fun time with you and we felt so grateful to you for your excellent tutoring. We would highly recommend Pietro for children leaning to ski. When we come back to Cervinia we will be asking for Pietro again. Thank you Pietro you have been so brilliant. The kids can’t stop talking about how great their days have been.
Veryan booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
Best ski lesson ever! Pietro is truly one of a kind. He took me and my son (who are basically beginners) and by the end of the second day, my son was able to ski from the top of the mountain range in Cervinia down to the bottom on some very difficult reds. While many ski instructors may have technical expertise, it takes a truly special instructor to be able to impart that knowledge to others. And Pietro went above and beyond merely imparting his skills; his passion for skiing was inspirational and infectious. After two days, we left feeling we had improved our abilities by several orders of magnitude.

What a fabulous afternoon skiing with Pietro. He is a great communicator and quickly made me feel at ease again on the slopes especially after some away from skiing. As well as helpful technical tips and tricks, he really helped lift my confidence back up so I can happily enjoy the slopes again. I would highly recommend Pietro and would definitely book another ski session with him. Thank you for helping me find my ski legs again!!

We booked with another instructor, who cancelled on us last minute. But then the Maisonsport team jumped into action, including Pietro who persistently found us a wonderful instructor Erjon T who all of our kids (4 of them) enjoyed their first ski lessons with for the full day. I truly appreciate the MS & Pietro dedication and kind assistance in a tight moment. 100% recommend them.

Arlene booked a total of 12 hours with Pietro
We were 3 female relatives in our 30s who had skied before but not for several years so were out of practice! Pietro was the perfect choice for us and certainly knew his way around all the slopes in the Morzine/Les Gets/Avoriaz areas. He is friendly but professional, very experienced with a relaxed and non-pressurising manner. He explained corrections to our techniques simply and was very encouraging. We wouldn’t hesitate to get in touch if we need pointers when we’re next on the slopes.
Nicola booked a total of 12 hours with Pietro
Pietro was really professional and fun. My 3 kids took the lessons together and he managed to challenge each one of them on their own ski level. He even helped me get over my fright of the slopes. We highly recommend Pietro as a ski teacher.

Pietro is an incredible instructor!
Ishan Sachar booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
Cannot say enough good things about Pietro. From the minute we started until we finished, he was positive, friendly and good fun. We were total beginners but he very quickly helped us understand exactly what we needed to do to progress. He pushed us as soon as he saw the progress so the lesson was incredibly productive. By the end of the session we were already confidently turning with parallel skis and really enjoying ourselves! I really cannot recommend him highly enough for anyone wanting to start to learn.

The children loved him and learnt quickly and enjoyed their lessons. Pietro has a lovely kind, gently, patient way … perfect for learning to ski!

David booked a total of 8 hours with Pietro
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!

Irene booked a total of 1 full day with 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!
Geeta booked a total of 8 hours with Pietro

Steven booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
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.
Ted booked a total of 9 hours with Pietro
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!
Robert booked a total of 4 hours with 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
Alison booked a total of 3 hours with Pietro
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.
paul booked a total of 6 hours with Pietro
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
Sarah booked a total of 12 hours with 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.

Pietro is a very accomplished ski coach who can tailor his lesson to any ability. We will be using him again!!!!
Amanda booked a total of 2 hours with 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.
Sally booked a total of 8 hours with Pietro
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 was absolutely fantastic, very patient with our 2 young children, one of whom is autistic and he had a great way with children and helped ours go from complete beginners to pros in just a few short days. Would highly recommend Pietro to everyone and will definitely be calling him again next year x

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.
Alan booked a total of 4 hours with Pietro
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.

Lucy booked a total of 3 full days with Pietro
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.
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
