I'm a relaxed and friendly guy - a ski and snowboard instructor for the last 10 years and have worked all over the globe, sharing my passion for the mountains in Switzerland, Italy, Japan and Australia.
I love to teach to all ages and abilities of skiers and can take you from your very first turns to expert level.
Whether adults or children I will tailor your day completely to you and your goals/needs. I'm an experienced and thoughtful teacher who can show you amazing techniques and guide you to fantastic experience both on and of the slopes. Hotel pick-up available.
Samuel was a great snowboard teacher. I haven’t been snowboarding in about 10 years and he helped me get back into it within 3 hours. Couldn’t be happier and would defs do another lesson if I was back in Zermatt 😊
Brilliant instructor, incredibly patient and sticks with you through the entire learning process. He’s also very encouraging and helps with making good progress even for beginners.
Sam was awesome! He was always on time, he was very patient training us as beginners and he has a great sense of humor. Overall I give him two thumbs up and would definitely use him again in the future.
Sam made me feel relaxed and was patient with my ability which allowed me to improve very quickly.
I had two very good lessons from Samuel, he is very kind and he gives very good technical feedback. We could really improve my snowboarding. Thank you Samuel.
I met Sam two years ago, he helped me to overcome my fears and taught me the first steps on skis. He is a very correct, sensitive and very excellent guy. Last year with only 3 lessons I was able to go down the easy slopes! Thanks Sam and have a good winter season.
Sam instructed our 10 and 16 year old snowboarders. He was very patient and ensured a relaxed and positive atmosphere. We would recommend Sam without hesitation.
Our children were taught by Sam Ladds and both significantly improved during their week with him. The quality of the instruction was very high with lessons made fun, varied and with safety a priority. The children really enjoyed being taught by him. We will definitely book lessons with Sam again when we return to Zermatt.
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
