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!

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.

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.

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 : )

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 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

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.

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.

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?

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.

How many people can take part in the lesson?

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

How do I book?

If you are on a desktop computer or laptop, you will see a box on the right hand side of the screen which contains various lesson options and pricing, simply select the lessons you would like and then click 'Book now', then follow the instructions to make payment.
