Nick was amazing! Helped to regain confidence on the mountain after previously having an accident. He taught multiple levels at the same time and exceeded at teaching them. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family to teach them how to snowboard or ski! He was also as entertaining as educational. We felt like we had a private guide to the mountain!

We were a trio of middle aged skiers, lacking in both skill and confidence. Nick made our holiday by giving us the confidence to ski and feel safe over those first few days. He is incredibly patient and uses great analogies to help you understand what you need to be doing to feel your skis & the snow under your feet. We all agreed that Nick was a first class ski instructor with a sense of humour, hence the five star review.

Nick was exceptional. My wife and I had two private lessons with Nick. He was very careful to understand our level, took individual approaches to our training, challenged us and did not try to prolong the process. He was very friendly and professional, gave us lots of general tips on skiing, the area, ways to do things. Bottom line he got my wife to start basic skiing and enjoying it and I was parallel skiing on blue runs by the end of day two which is more than what I was realistically hoping for. Excellent on all fronts. Highly recommended.

Nick is great at delivering technique training and will always find the perfect slopes for you to hone your skills. Kind and encouraging, his desire to help you to improve is infectious and leaves you wanting more and believing you can achieve more. We have been using Nick for years now and he is just great with all ages and all abilities from getting our little ones up and running to perfecting the final tweaks for advanced skiers. We just used him for 5 intermediate adults on a ski weekend and he was just so good and literally improved each and every one of us - even the ones who thought they didn't need that much improving!!! Always full of fresh ideas and novel ways to help you to master this sport. Cannot recommend this guy enough.

If you are lucky enough to spend any time on the slopes with Nick you are guaranteed to enjoy whatever conditions or weather you encounter. Our family group had a real mixed bag of heavy snow, freezing icy winds and beautiful ‘postcard’ blue sky powder days. I loved his consistency and adaptability of teaching style regardless. Nick only has to remind me of his ‘Yoda like’ analogies and the moves come straight back (this relatable visualisation was particularly successful with our children). Nick is a truly fantastic teacher and a fun personable guide for any group. We will definitely be rebooking year-on-year.

An intermediate skier resigned to the fact I wouldn't get much better, 3 days with Nick and my skiing was revolutionised. I can't believe how much I improved in both skill and confidence. Unlike many instructors I have used in the past Nick is armed with a gift of being able to explain really clearly what he wants you to do and then offers great exercises or drills to allow you to feel and practise the changes that need to be made. Definitely the best ski teacher I have ever had.

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
