I'm a true mountain boy! Born and bred in the Alps, I started skiing before I was even 3 years old and by the time I was 7, I joined the local ski club mainly because my parents couldn't keep up with me anymore! With over 20 years teaching experience, I will adapt lessons to suit your needs and requirements with enthusiasm, fun, patience, dedication and a great sense of humour!
I will make sure that you have a great time learning and that my sessions are as fun and relaxed as possible.
Being a local, I always have great recommendations to make, whether you’re after a quiet spot during half term or which restaurant serves the best hot chocolate!
Absolutely brilliant teacher , great English skills and he gave me really good solid feedback on how to improve my technique .

Elaine booked a total of 6 hours with Alex
Having not been on the slopes for over 20 years, I was slightly wary. Alex was great, really helped update my technique and give me my confidence back. We were soon all over the mountain, getting lots of practice in.
Terry steel booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
I had a two hour lesson with Alex in February. I’m a relative beginner and was looking to get rid of my ‘sneaky plough’ and move more towards continuous parallel turns. Alex was great. Friendly and energetic and no time was wasted during the lesson. He introduced me to a couple of concepts I’d not been taught in previous lessons which really helped me for the rest of the week. Also gave some good restaurant tips! Would absolutely recommend.
Roly Humphreys booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Brilliant lessons with Alex. Took three of us with little or no experience at the start of the week to all of us happily going down blues by the end of the week. Excellent at providing technical feedback and helping to build confidence during the lessons.
Mark Herrington booked a total of 10 hours with Alex
Great lesson, really helpful advice on how to improve and progressed so much in just 3hrs. Thanks so much Alex!
Harry booked a total of 3 hours with Alex
Alex was fantastic! This was the first time my daughters of 13 and 11 years had ever skied. They were pretty apprehensive. From the second we met Alex, he filled the girls and us with confidence. He seemed to know how to get the best out of them and challenge them without them getting scared. Alex has a great sense of humour too and speaks excellent English. I would 100% recommend Alex. Thank you for a great week. Best wishes Simon & Tessa
Simon Frost booked a total of 10 hours with Alex
Very patient and adaptive
JOHN booked a total of 3 hours with Alex
Alex was a superb instructor to 6 6,7 and 8 year olds. Despite their high energy and distracted ways he managed to teach them how to parallel ski and side slip. He was at all times patient and understanding and so easy to communicate with and very kind. The children loved their lessons with Alex. Thank you!
Ciara O’Brien booked a total of 15 hours with Alex
Alex was really great. He taught my 13year old daughter who had never skied before and by the end of the lesson she was skied confidently down a blue run with him. Thank you Alex for giving her a great start.
Paula booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Excellent communication before our holiday, letting us know the weather reports and where our lessons had been moved to. We met Alex exactly where he said he’d be and on time. Incredibly knowledgeable and great English. Excellent coaching skills, got his instructions across quickly and in an easy to understand way. Got us up to speed quickly in difficult weather conditions. We felt confident enough after our 2 lessons to ski on our own on Green and Blue slopes. At the end of our second lesson, there was a very bad storm on the slopes, Alex got us down safely in very, very bad conditions, with 2 of our party very scarred. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex to our friends and we will definitely book with him again on our next visit.
Phil Oliver booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
My daughter in laws and 9 year old Grandaughter had 3 private lessons with Alex over New Year 2022. They had not skied before and the snow conditions were not fantastic but they loved the way Alex taught them and what they learnt from him. They thought he was a fantastic teacher and would highly recommend him. His time keeping was much better then theirs ;-) and communication and friendliness was really great. Thank you Alex.
Tina Boden booked a total of 6 hours with Alex
Alex was great with daughters aged 13 & 11 reminding them if the basics again after a long gap since their last ski holiday. He’s very patient & reassuring. And was helpful for me recommending runs for their abilities as I didn’t know the area & the snow unfortunately wasn’t great.
Phillipa booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Alex has been a superb ski instructor for our 8 year old son. His confidence and progress has accelerated throughout the week and he has become a very accomplished skier (for his age) as a result. From the moment we booked, Alex has been in regular contact with us and has been really flexible in terms of meeting points and times. We would highly recommend Alex.
Michael booked a total of 12 hours with Alex
Alex was absolutely amazing! He displayed exactly the right amount of balance between our brave, fearless 15 year old boy and less confident, shy 13 year old boy, whilst not forgetting mum and dad! He read our minds with how much we wanted to push ourselves, but not to uncomfortable limits, and we always felt safe and secure when we were with him. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex and when we come back to Avoriaz he would be the only instructor we would want. Thank you Alex!
Vicki booked a total of 9 hours with Alex
Absolutely fantastic!! My kids have had such an amazing week. They loved every minute of Skiing with Alex A HUGE recommendation from us
Brendon booked a total of 18 hours with Alex
Alex taught my girls (aged 11 and 13) to snowboard at Avoriaz in just a few lessons, they loved their time with him and were happily coming down blue runs at the end. thoroughly recommend him
Jed Hurwitz booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
We hired Alex to teach our 2 girls to snowboard, they are 11 & 13 and can ski reasonably well, so they had to go back to basics and learn a new skill. Alex met us at the hire shop to minimise our inconvenience and took them off, 3-hours later they were returned happy and with the basics and SSID they’d managed to go down a run - more than they or us expected. Looking forward to the next lesson with Alex tomorrow- he has a lovely manor with them, and that’s thru enjoy the hard work of learning from scratch
Jed Hurwitz booked a total of 3 hours with Alex
Our 2 daughters, 11 and 12 had 3 x 3 hrs lessons with Alex and were much more competent and confident skiers at the end of the sessions to the point of negotiating red runs. The girls really enjoyed their lessons and Alex’s company and learnt a lot about the mountain and aside from just skiing. Alex was a fantastic communicator all through the booking process, meeting for the first day and of course during the lesions. I would highly recommend Alex as would both my 2 girls. Hopefully we’ll see him again next time.
simon booked a total of 9 hours with Alex

I booked Alex for a 2hr private lesson to give both my sons girlfriends who had little to no skiing experience a small crash course for our 4 day skiing break. He was amazing, made the girls feel at ease and I was amazed they were skiing down from the first ski lift by the end of the 2hrs 👏👏👏

Alex was our kids first ever ever ski lesson! They had such a wonderful time and made such progress in 2 hours, we couldn't believe it! Thank you Alex!

Alex was great. Quick communication around booking and confirming, helpful advice on ski passes and parking. On the day he turned up on time and was great. Quickly assessed my ability and gave me confidence to learn more. Never felt under pressure. Oh and his English is better than mine.
Tom booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Excellent instructor. We used Alex for various members of our families, and various levels - nervous beginners, intermediate children (age 10) and experienced adults. We all thought he was fantastic, had great feedback and immediately knew what to do to improve our ski experience. Would wholeheartedly recommend - everyone came away skiing better after only a few sessions.
Laura booked a total of 9 hours with Alex
After only skiing once when I was young I was a little nervous going on the slopes, however Alex put me totally at ease! He was very patient and gave me great feedback which led me to improve massively! He was extremely punctual and I left feeling much more confident then I did before, giving me sound advice and manoeuvres to practice by myself after. Would highly recommend Alex!
Grace McGovern booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Alex was a great instructor. After a gap of 5 years as a novice - intermediate I was worried I would have to start right from the beginning again but his clear instructions and perfect progression meant I was on reds within the first 2 hours back. Even in really difficult conditions Alex made the lessons fun and engaging. Highly recommend.

Alex was fun, friendly and a great teacher. We would highly recommend him to friends.

We were extremely happy with Alex, he was a great instructor and I recommend him highly. My wife and I are beginners, and Alex was very friendly, patient and knowledgeable, and was able to give really clear instruction and advice in a way that was easy to understand and try. We may come back to Morzine with our young children, and we would definitely book Alex again next time.
Simon booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
We were a family group of 4 mixed abilities. We had 2 2hr lessons with Alex. He was really friendly, great communication before we arrived. He pitched the lessons perfectly for our needs, and we all improved and felt more confident. Highly recommended Alex.
Claire booked a total of 4 hours with Alex
Technically strong teacher with great sensible advice and tips for improvement. Able to see what needs changing and advise how to correct neatly and quickly. Sensible choice of routes and grades that fitted our skill level perfectly. Good sense of humour. Our only suggestion would be about using the time on the lifts to continue the learning discussions, at least for some of the time? But overall fab++
Matthew booked a total of 7 hours with Alex
Alex provided a great lesson to a group of five adults with limited experience. He was very friendly and easy to deal with. All of us were very happy with the lesson and found ourselves feeling more confident on the slopes by the end of it.
Jonathan booked a total of 3 hours with Alex
Great lesson, would highly recommend!
Chris booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Alex was absolutely brilliant. Dealt with both the technical aspects of the lessons and my fear of heights (which often caused an issue) in a chilled, friendly and yet efficient manner which left me with a determination to build on what he has taught me. Most importantly, I’ve enjoyed learning with him and want to continue skiing. Couldn’t ask for more!
Rebecca booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Sioned Evans booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
We had a three hour lesson with Alex and definitely felt that our technique had improved by the end of the lesson. He quickly identified what we needed to work on and communicated this well. We were very pleased with the tuition and Alex was always relaxed and friendly.
Jacqui booked a total of 3 hours with Alex
Amazing lesson, thank you so much!!! We hope to see you again next season.
Adam booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Great lessons with Alex would highly recommend.
Lindsey booked a total of 4 hours with Alex
I had two 2-hour one-on-one lessons with Alex to improve my turns after a week’s previous skiing experience. They were well worth it. Alex is an excellent communicator and provides specific but easily digestible feedback, adopting a 3-stage approach to teaching which really helped me improve by focusing on one thing at a time. I went from confidence on blue runs to confidence on all red runs after my two days with him, and was able to try black runs by mid-way through the week. Highly recommended.
Gavin booked a total of 4 hours with Alex
I had 3 x 2 hour lessons with Alex, and went from an absolute beginner to being able to navigate some blue runs on my own over the course of 3 days. Alex is an amazing instructor - he was so patient with me, continually pointing out what little adjustments and corrections i needed to make. What i enjoyed with Alex was how fast paced it was, we were continually on the move trying different runs. I would highly recommend Alex and can't thank him enough.
Kevin booked a total of 6 hours with Alex
We booked 2, 2 hr lessons with Alex in Morzine in Jan 2020. He is a fantastic instructor. The 3 or us, (me, hubby and daughter , aged 5) had a joint lesson, we are mixed abilities but it really didn't matter, Alex managed us all - no easy task. He was fantastic with our daughter, and she actually listened to him which is quite something....like most 5 year olds, her listening skills aren't the best. She followed him religiously. Alex helped my husband too, who wasn't that confident on skis. I can't recommend Alex enough. Safe to say, we're looking to go back to Morzine next year, and we'll be booking Alex for refresher courses....if he'll have us :-)
Rebecca booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Fantastic!!! Alex took our 7 year old daughter and 5 year old son (total beginner) for x2, 2hr ski lessons and he was brilliant! Our son was not keen to try skiing but Alex made him feel instantly at ease and they both had so much fun. We would recommend Alex 100% and will be booking with him again next year. Alex was also quick to confirm our booking, the meeting point and gave us great feedback and pointers for the kids after the lessons.
Suzanne booked a total of 4 hours with Alex
We cannot say enough good things about Alex. From the point of booking he sends you a WhatsApp Message with his contact details and was ready to meet us for our lesson. He makes skiing fun with clear technical advice as well and being encouraging at all times. I would 100% recommend Alex as he helped us loads to improve from basic recreational skiers to be able to do parallel turns inside 2 hours. He is a really nice guy and you won't go wrong using him.
Carey booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Alex was very patient! As an adult beginner I was very hesitant but he was extremely helpful in reminding me of the basics and adding in some tips to help feel more confident. Many thanks!
Venetia booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Alex was great and super friendly
Olivia booked a total of 2 hours with Alex
Alex is great! We genuinely challenged him by providing him with a group of 5 mildly mischievous children ranging from 7-11 and he rose to the challenge perfectly!! He managed to keep them all in check ensuring that all of the children had enough focus from him to push them individually whilst keeping full enjoyment! Really can't have been easy but he still seemed very upbeat by the end of the lessons and the kids all had a great time and loved the skiing!
Thomas booked a total of 12 hours with Alex
Alex was fantastic at teaching our group (8 people - all beginners). We felt he was great at communicating and took the time to teach each member of our group. By the end of the third lesson Alex had taken us around numerous slopes, varying in difficultly, to build our confidence and help us improve. He is very patient, easy to talk to and recognised the various strengths/weaknesses in each member of our group to help that person improve. Would strongly recommend!!
Hugh booked a total of 9 hours with Alex
A lovely morning with Alex.
Lauren booked a total of 4 hours with Alex

Graham booked a total of 3 hours with Alex
Alex is a super instructor. We looked forward to our lessons which were well structured and enjoyable. We are a family of four with teenagers and whilst we are all intermediate skiers, we we wanted to improve technique, learn control and how to carve properly! Alex helped each of us and taught us well whilst making it fun and challenging. Highly recommend Alex as an instructor. We felt disappointed to miss our last lesson on the last day due to rain and illness! Thanks Alex for all your help. We shall recommend you to our friends.

Our 2 daughters, age 4 and 6 had 4x2 hr lessons with Alex over the Christmas break in Morzine with Alex. He was fantastic. Neither one had skied before, and they progressed very quickly and really enjoyed the lessons. My 6 yr old even made a successful blue run by the end of the week. Alex is very friendly, approachable and professional, and we will definitely have lessons again with him if we can make it back to Morzine.
luke booked a total of 6 hours with Alex
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
