Domenico was an amazing instructor for our 4 children (aged 4 to 7). His enthusiasm and energy levels were fantastic. The kids made great progress and he had a great understanding of them all as individuals. We loved receiving the photos and videos of the lessons, at the end of each day, so we could see what they had been upto. We would not hesitate to recommend Domenico and will definitely book him again for our kids, next year.

Dome was great with my wife and 4 kids and had them sailing down the mountain by the end of the lesson, while dealing with disparate skill levels. Easy going, articulate English speaker who was very good at breaking down the fundamentals and was a patient and positive teacher who made the lesson fun. We'll definitely use him again!

Domenico was fantastic! He took a group of 7 children aged 10-15 with varying abilities for four mornings and they truly loved every minute. His enthusiasm for skiing, the mountains and for teaching is infectious. Unlike other ski instructors we have experienced, he also cared about each individual child and all of them made significant progress. His energy is boundless; he entertained them with tricks, set challenges and kept them moving on quickly. Most importantly, they all had great fun. All three families would highly recommend Domenico and would love to book lessons with him again.

Where to start!? Domenicos energy and enthusiasm knows no bounds! Even having spent four days with our four children all under 7 he was still smiling and full of joy! Our children absolutely loved skiing with him and from all the feedback from them (and him) you could tell he had encouraged and pushed them to exactly the right level to make sure all of their skiing had improved massively but whilst still keeping their full enjoyment! A great guy and great teacher! Really hoping he's available next year!!

Domenico was an absolutely lovely instructor. He was flexible on the first day when the weather caused us delays and was kind enough to meet us another day instead. During two days skiing together he was a good teacher and very nice guy. He managed with our two different ski levels very easily and gave us both great tips and techniques- challenging us lots but also making it fun throughout. Learnt lots with Domenico and time flew by. We would definitely recommend him and ski with him ourselves again next time! Thank you!!

I arranged lessons with Dom for a friend and her two daughter (ages 12 and 14). None of them had skied previously. Dom had great communication in the lead up to the trip. Upon meeting up at the appointed hour in Les Gets, Dom greeted the girls with a massive smiling "hello!" and successfully set three worried minds at ease. I heard nothing but praise for Dom's teaching and patience throughout both days of lessons. All three left the resort vowing to return next year for a full week (and seek out Dom again for more lessons)! Thanks, Dom. See you in 2020! Marc

What a fab instructor Domenico is. We were a group of 4 adults and Domenico catered for all of our levels brilliantly. He teaches technique with a fun easy going attitude whilst trying to get the best out of you. I could not recommend Domenico highly enough. You will have a brilliant instructor. If we go to the same area next year we are definitely going to book him!!

Domenico was a great instructor for our kids. Our eldest wanted to improve on his technique and also try some different slopes and do the fun jump parks whilst our daughter needed to gain some confidence and work on the basics...Domenico succeeded to fulfill all these requirements and helped make skiing as a family possible. Lovely instructor who was approachable and patient. He was knowledgeable and directed us to the best skiing for our abilities. Thank you Domenico, we all had a great time. :-)

I can't fault Domenico, he was absolutely brilliant. I learnt more with him in three mornings than I have in two previous weeks ski school. He was friendly, explained things really clearly and even filmed me and took photos to give me feedback and constructive commentary. I felt incredibly safe when skiing with him as he gave me the confidence to push myself and put the skills I'd learnt into practice. I would 100% recommend him and we will be booking again if we return to Les Gets.

We had a three hour lesson with Dom and he was a fantastic tutor. My husband and I had been on one ski holiday last year and needed help with our technique and to try and master parallel skiing. Don gave us loads of advice and took us on different slopes. It felt like we were hanging out with a friend as he is good company. I highly recommend him and thought the cost of our lesson was very reasonable. Thank you Dom.

Dominico rocks! As a father himself, he found the common ground with our 5 year-old twin boys in seconds. We knew right away that we went for the right instructor. He captured the best moments they had together and filmed them on the move. Such an amazing gift to take home with us! Our children had a great time, they learned more in these 3 hours that they did in a week of crowded ski-school sessions before. It was a pleasure to meet Dominico!

From the very beginning Domenico was friendly, funny and patient! He put the group at ease, gave clear instructions and was always positive. He made sure we were enjoying ourselves, offering any solutions and tips he could to fix our problems. He knew the right time to move onto new things so that we progressed at a comfortable pace. It was such a great experience to learn skiing with my friends and to have a very supportive and communicative (quick replies!) ski instructor. Thank you Dome!

The best instructor imaginable. This was only my third trip skiing. My husband picked Dom for me due to his skilled background (detailed in profile) and it was the best choice. The progress I made in 3 days was more than I could have hoped for. I learnt techniques that I will always remember and can build on. In fact we will look to come back to Les Gets/Morzine to ensure I can book Dom again. Brilliant instructor.

Domenico is great fun to be with and he always see the positive things in everything you do, and then he suggests how to improve. His energy and enthusiasm keeps going all day, and is infective. He pushed me to achieve more than you think you can and during the three lessons I had I improved remarkably, and with improvement in my confidence. Domenico certainly adds something to your whole holiday and I cannot speak more highly about him. Definitely book him if he is available, not just for a lesson but for a great day out with an instructor who will show you the slopes with masses of fun, enthusiasm and energy.

Finding Domenico on your site as our instructor really made our holiday. As a mixed group of skiing abilities Domenico was friendly, professional and really wanted us to get the most of our week learning to ski. Domenico was fab with the mixed age ranges of 5 children ranging from 8 to 14, from not being able to ski on day one they skied red runs with Domenico by the last lesson. If you are thinking of booking an instructor I strongly recommend Domenico his enthusiasm for skiing is infectious!

Domenico was the best instructor I have ever had, in any sport! Not only is he a fantastic teacher, but his skiing skills are crazy and really fun to watch. He is also a genuinely nice guy and made the lessons really fun. My skiing improved more in the first two hours with him than in the preceding two seasons. Cannot recommend him highly enough.

Domenico took our two daughters for two 3 hour lessons and he was fantastic. They were both beginners and their improvement in just two mornings of skiing was immense. We were then able to ski as a family for the rest of the week with confidence. Domenico was extremely friendly and put our two daughters at ease from the moment they met him. We would highly recommend him and will be sure to use him again on our next skiing holiday. Thanks so much Domenico.

Domenico instructed our two children (9 and 11) for 4 days and took them from absolute beginner to a level where I struggled to keep up with them! His friendly and professional approach meant our kids (who are normally shy), were excited to meet with him each day and happy to head off onto the slopes with him...I think its fair to say Domenico became part of our family for our skiing holiday and my son talked about him all the way back to the UK! A great and friendly instructor, Domenico made our first family ski trip a huge success and very enjoyable...highly recommend!

After a ski injury several years ago, I had lost a bit of confidence, especially on steeper runs. I booked a few private lessons with Domenico in which he gradually took me through the different types of descents, improving my posture and technique. It was just what I needed to kickstart a great ski holiday with my friends. Thanks so much!

Domenico skied with us during our holidays in Chatel. On the first day I had a private lesson with him as I wanted to improve my short-turns and off-piste skiing. The rest of the week he skied with my 3 kids. They had so much fun and learned so much! Thanks Domenico, we will definitely see you next year. Bas van Eggermont, Netherlands.
