I am fully qualified to teach to anyone but I specialize in teaching children and can adapt my lessons to the very youngest, from two and a half years of age.
The skiing program and daily rhythm are adjusted to match the physiological and psychological capacities of each child.
I usually get on well with kids because I focus on creating a fun environment in which to learn and meet new challenges. There’s never a dull moment.
Different age groups are centred around specific interests with teenagers being gradually led towards a safe and responsible enjoyment of all-terrain skiing.
My teaching methods are based on role-play with educational games inciting children to adopt the correct posture and position through imitation.
I believe it’s important to spend time exchanging with parents before and after the skiing sessions to monitor their child’s technical, physical and psychological progress.

  • Excellent with all abilities
  • Great with beginners

Valerie was brilliant with my 9 year old daughter. She had only skied once before and had forgotten everything. After a couple of 3 hour lessons with Valerie, she was skiing confidently and safely down green runs. Fabulous!

Valerie was excellent with our group of teenage skiers - she was warm, friendly & very good at giving the girls tips on how they can improve - after meeting her on the first day, they looked forward to the second lesson - couldn’t recommend Valerie highly enough!

Valerie taught our kids (8 and 10) for 3 private lessons and was “brilliant and fun” to quote one of them. Everything from parallel turns to the jump park! They are keen to have her teach them again, you cant really have a better recommendation than that.

Val was great for my children and myself -all beginners. She gave us all confidence and even had my reluctant 4 year old zooming down with her. We all really liked her as she was very friendly.

Valarie is a fantastic ski instructor. We booked her for our 3 children mainly for our youngest 6 year old boy who had not had a good experience skiing previously along with his 2 older sisters (10 and 12) who have skied many times. Val instantly connected with the children making them feel at ease straight away and of course making me feel happy to leave my children in her capable hands. My little boy couldn't wait for his lesson each day! The progress the children made with Val was amazing. We will definitely be booking her next time we are in Val d'sere. :-)

I would highly recommend Valerie. My daughter really enjoyed her skiing lessons during February half term and her confidence really grew! Valerie was great with my daughter and she went from a cautious skier to one eager to learn and enthusiastic.

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?

All instructors listed on Maison Sport have been verified by their nation's governing body, be it the French Government's Department of Sport, Swiss Ski Federation or The Italian Winter Sports Federation, so you can rest assured you will be in safe hands when you’re on the slopes.

How many people can take part in the lesson?

Generally no more than 8 people, each instructor has 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
