As a former ski racer for the swiss alpine ski team and after teaching for 10 years I know all the tricks to teach you the perfect turns, help you gain confidence and show you the best places in the area. Weather you're new to skiing or already an expert, I will be happy to share my passion with you!
I know the area around Mont Blanc very well. I would be happy to help them find the perfect restaurant or activity after skiing.
We really enjoyed family lesson from Ella. My family all agree that Ella is the best instructor. Thanks.
My Son loved having Ella as his instructor, she was very helpful and incredibly friendly and it could not have been better!!
My 11year old daughter and 9 year old son enjoyed their lessons with friendly Ella. They learnt lots and were taught in a fun way that helped them to remember techniques. Great balance of teaching, fun bumpy jumps and challenges, so much so the both have asked for Ella again next year.
Thank you Ella for a brilliant lesson. It had been 12 years since my last time skiing and was worried I had forgotten everything. But by the end of the lesson I felt so much happier and more confident with controlling my turns and speed. Will be booking back in for next year!!! Thank you!
What a lovely lady. Great teacher and knowledge of the area!! We will see you again Ella
Possibly the best ski instructor I ever had She is incredibly knowledgable and efficient at this job and has a world of stories to tell great experience
Everything was perfect, we managed to skate in different beautiful places.
ella was simply the best instructor my teenage son ever had and he has had instruction all over the world her technical prowess and experience speaks for itself but it’s her friendliness and her desire to assist us especially being in an unfamiliar country with transportation and equipment issues was another bonus. highly recommend ella to anyone !!!
My girlfriend and 9 years old daughter had 4 days private lesson with Ella over Christmas. They both had a blast. Ella improved their skiing confidence greatly while making sure they had tons of fun. Even on the day where the weather was really bad, Ella managed to give them a fun day on sheltered slope. We highly recommend Ella for skiers of all levels and kids that are learning to ski.
We had a great time skiing with Ella. Weather conditions were challenging - heaving snowfall and lots of wind - yet we had lot of fun and could work on our technique and improve our skiing skills.
Ella was a great instructor and was able to cater the lessons for every member of the family. She offered great advice and was kind and helpful. I would highly recommend lessons with Ella.
It was very lucky to meet Ella as my daughters’ ski instructor. She was very patient and professional. Thanks to her encouragement, the girls were able to ski by themselves on the blue course after the lesson. I strongly recommend Ella.
Ella was perfect really. Very friendly. Arrived on time. I felt very confident for her to take my son to argentiere - she inspires peace of mind.
Very patient with me as a beginner, would highly recommend
I had a 3 hour session with Ella on my first day as a beginner. Genuinely, she was absolutely great. I was pretty nervous and the conditions included strong winds and snowfall with about 30m visibility. Ella was brilliant with me, helping me to relax and grow in confidence. She has a really calming manner. Plus, the technical feedback I got was really helpful. Simple and easy to understand. Thank you Ella. You deserve lots of happy clients : )
Ella helped our little one gain confidence on the slope and since then his progress has been superb. Highly recommended, no nonsense, very friendly professional knowing how to handle kids.
I highly recommend Ella as a ski instructor. We were two beginners. Starting skiing while an adult is definitely not easy but thanks to Ella we managed to learn pretty quickly and got over our fear. We had a lot of fun and after just a few hours we felt pretty comfortable and soon were able to hit some slopes alone and we totally enjoyed it. She gave us plenty of tips on how to improve our skills and thanks to her instructions we got better and better every ride. Ella is fun to be around, very kind and professional. Thank you for this great experience.
Ella was fantastic! She gave me a lot of confidence and really helped me on my technique. She was very friendly and made sure I was comfortable at all times. I progressed a lot in my lesson with her. Would recommend to anyone at any level.
Awesome! Great instructor and my daughter loved her
She is a wonderful teacher and a most important a wonderful person, I’d take a class with her again if I had the chance.
Ella is a super kind and patient instructor. The lesson felt more like skiing with a good friend who cares about your progress than with someone you typically find in a ski school. She gave us confidence and helped us immensely work through the challenges in our head! Will definitely book again. Thank you Ella! X
Great teacher, got me up and going after a few years away from skiing. Excellent tips which will stay with me. Thanks Ella
Ella was fantastic, we were of mixed capabilities as took my 5 year old son who had never been skiing before, but Ella kept giving me and my sister feedback whilst focusing on the 5 year old, which was great. She was extremely good with my son, ensuring he was safe, having fun and happy at all times. Was such a good morning will hopefully book again soon with Ella!
Ella was very a very kind, efficient, patient instructor for my parents and brother who hadn't skied for many years. She built their confidence through technical exercises and after just one half-day lesson my brother particularly picked it up quite fast and gained enough knowledge, technique and confidence to join us on blues and easy reds that day. Working up to harder reds and blacks throughout the week using the technique and tips Ella had taught at the beginning of the week! Very worthwhile lesson and we would all highly recommend booking Ella if you get the chance.
Ella was very prompt, has excellent communication in English, and is very friendly. My girls moved from unable to stand with their skis on to confident enough to go on the slope alone after the first lesson. I highly recommend her
We can't thank Ella enough. It was the first time on snow for our 2 children and she had them skiing within a few hours. Through the week their confidence and technique grew massively. Both really enjoyed their lessons and said Ella made it fun and interesting. They are bitten by the ski bug and are already looking forward to their next trip to the mountains. Thanks again for teaching them and taking care of them for their first time skiing. Matt & Jules.
Ella was very patient and a great teacher. I was a first time skier and was very nervous but Ella put me at ease and and was very encouraging and knowledgable. Thank you for a great experience!
My lessons with Ella helped me enjoy skiing for the first time! I have skiied many times before but always lacked confidence. With Ella's patient and brilliant teaching I learnt more in two days than I had in ten years. I would recommend her to anyone.
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
