Hi! I’m Yann Grava, a ski instructor, mountain guide.
I was born in the snowy mountains and started skiing at 3 years old. As a child I competed in alpine ski racing and progressed into french circuit spending all my winters and summers striving for perfection and searching for speed. My passion for skiing developed and I started travelling around the world to ski amazing faces covered with untouched powder. I love to conquer mountains not only by skiing them down but also climbing them.

Since over 15 years my passion is also my profession. For me, every day on skis is an opportunity to share good time and energy surrounded by stunning nature, exploring hidden horizons and feeling the delightful sensation of sliding.

I’m fully qualified and experienced ski and snowboard instructor. As a dual qualified mountain guide, I’m one of the most experienced off-piste instructors in the area certified to guide around glacier zones and inaccessible to others places. As a part of mountain experience I have expertise in organising Heli Skiing.
Teaching and providing you with all necessary skills are my pleasure, no matter your level! I promise to accommodate any demand, whether you are a beginner, a budding racer or an off-piste enthusiast.

Learning is fun and I would love to share these moments of happiness with you.
I work closely with some of the top instructors allowing me to best fit needs even of the most depending clients. We value your time and privacy and can accommodate any request. We all know how stressful organising ski holidays can be! Contact me to help you organise your private luxury ski holidays in Italy, Switzerland and France.
For advanced clients, we also organise race and technical camps in autumn to get ready for the season.
Please contact me directly to discuss further.

See you soon! Yann Grava

Really really good lesson - Yann’s English is great, and his approach to teaching is very analytical, explaining clearly what one needs to do to improve, and crucially why and what forces are involved. Friendly and with excellent knowledge of the mountains, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Yann and will certainly be having more lessons with him in the future.

If you are going to book one instructor in Val D'isere, book Yann. We are a family of 5, with 3 children aged 8, 14 and 16...yet Yann skilfully managed not only teach us all to ski but also ensured we all met our individual potential with his friendly, knowledgeable and patient manner.

Yann made all the difference to our week of skiing! My husband and I hadn’t skied for 6 years and he gave us the right amount of tips to give us the confidence to have a fantastic week. He was really friendly, relaxed and encouraging. Also worked within a shorter timescale that we were late and had to leave early. But he was waiting at the meeting point on time and sent us a text beforehand to remind us where to meet. Definitely recommend!

Yan was amazing! He was so friendly, kind and patient. We finished the week being able to ski competently after starting off as beginners, Yann gave us the confidence to challenge ourselves teaching us in a friendly yet professional manner. We would highly recommend him to others and request him again in a heartbeat.

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
