I grew up in the Italian Alps where I lived a life filled with free skiing and a love for powder. Since then my passion for big mountains and the desire to be close to nature has led me to travel the world looking for new experiences both on and off the snow.

I am very rounded ski coach and I will harness your potential and take your skiing to a higher level.

I would give Pierluca 10 out of 10 and highly recommend him to anyone. We are a family of 5 with 3 children (12, 9,6) with little prior skiing experience , and at the end of our 6days with him, we were able to ski together as a family down blues/reds fairly competently. As an instructor he made sure we were learning and thinking about the necessary fundamentals at all times and his experience on the slopes made all the logistical issues easy for us. As a person he was also someone you can have a pleasant conversation with. Finally and most importantly, he made sure we had fun during the entire time - overall he gave our family a great introduction to an amazing sport. Thanks Pierluca.

Pierluca was a fabulous instructor. The first morning we wanted a ski tour of the Tignes / Val D’Isere mountain and he seamlessly incorporated better technique lessons into our fast and challenging tour. The second day had very little visibility so we worked hard on improving technique. Pierluca communicated well, is an interesting person and made it fun.

Pierluca gave myself and my quite literally the best ski lessons I have ever had. Very focussed, simple and easy to remember instruction and feedback. Also very friendly and a great focus on relaxing and enjoying the skiing. I would not hesitate to recommend Pierluca. Excellent.

The lesson was really good. I have been skiing for a little while now but have been struggling to get better for ages. Within half an hour I felt more comfortable and was moving much more easily. I wouldn't have been able to do this without Pierluca. The guidance given was perfect. I will definitely be booking Pierluca again next year. I would say his the best instructor I've come across. Thanks again Pierluca.

Pierluca is a fantastic instructor. I improved dramatically after two mornings with him and felt much more confident for the rest of my trip. He’s friendly, helpful and gives clear and specific feedback/coaching. I’d recommend Pierluca to skiers of all levels. Thank you!

I’m a nervous skier, who usually ends up spending more time in the chalet than the slopes. I booked 3 days private lessons as a last ditch attempt to try and get to a level where I can actually enjoy myself! And I’m so glad I did. Pierluca read my brief and understood that building my confidence was key to me making any technical improvements! I made more progress ‪in 3 days‬ with Pierluca that I have on my past 5 skiing holidays. My other half was amazed at the progress I had made. Pierluca is constantly observing your skiing and giving you tips for improvement combined with feedback to boost your confidence and takes videos each day for you to review in the evening. I’ve been on other lessons where you just follow the instructor and they perhaps observe your last few turns - for me, the level and quality of feedback from Pierluca made a real difference to my progress. Pierluca is a teacher and he adjusts the lesson to suit your mood, the conditions etc to make sure you get the best out of every hour.  So if you’re a nervous skier looking to build confidence as well as ability – I would thoroughly recommend Pierluca.  As other reviews have said, he’s also a nice guy, easy to get along with and helps you get those boots on in the morning 😊

Having booked on line, you always worry if you have chosen the right person. This was certainly not the case with Pierluca. He contacted me as soon as we arrived and made sure we were clear about where and when to meet. He has a lovely warm, friendly manner, which puts you at ease straight away. I had booked the lesson for myself and 4 other members of my family, who have varying abilities; Pierluca provided the appropriate level of attention to each of us and challenged us according to our abilities, which can be difficult in a group session. Pierluca has a great deal of knowledge about skiing and is very articulate in communicating this effectively. I would highly recommend him as an instructor and will make sure we book him again, when we next go skiing.

It was an absolute pleasure to have Pierluca as our ski teacher and guide for our week in Val d'Isere! He taught our 4 kids aged 8, 6, 6 and 3 every morning and then guided the adults around in the afternoons. He was excellent with our children who had never skied in the mountains before, as he was calm, patient, fun and had lots of energy. He was always kind and considerate with the whole family, he helped by meeting at our hotel, helping with boots, carrying skis, calling for taxis, taking the kids to meet us at lunch - going above and beyond what we were expecting. The kids became great skiers thanks to him and we couldn't have asked for a better teacher, guide and now friend for our holiday!

We had a great afternoon with Pierluca, and he took us down some outstanding runs. We've been out with off piste guides plenty of times before but the difference with Pierluca is the feedback he was giving us. He was pointing out what we were doing wrong and how we should fix it. We both felt that we came on loads during our session, especially impressive as one of us was on skis and one on a board.

Myself and 5 friends (all of different skiing abilities) did 4 days of private lessons with Pierluca in Tignes. We simply could not have asked for a better instructor!!! Pierluca improved different elements of our technique and pushed us to our boundaries while providing support, encouragement and allowing us to enjoy our time on the slopes. We had lots of fun with Pierluca in each session as he tried different runs and different exercises enabling us to improve our technical skiing ability. Each one of us came away with something from the lessons. We would very highly recommend Pierluca to anyone looking for a skiing instructor, you will not be disappointed! Thanks Pierluca :)

Pierluca was an amazing instructor. Very attentive - me and my husband are beginners and we couldn't have wished for better care and instruction with super advice for when we weren't with him too. Pierluca also instructed our 11 year old who had a fantastic time with him on the blue and red runs. I had problems with my leg and Pierluca immediately sorted out physio for me with a contact who was also excellent. It was lovely to be skiing and to have Pierluca waving hello and shouting instructions even when we weren't on a lesson ! Many thanks

Had a fantastic session. Very good technically which is what I was looking for. Very patient, keeps within your limits but left me with some simple things to focus on that I can already feel are beneficial.

Outstanding, Pierluca helped all three of us with technique, he arrived promptly, a great guy who was interesting & informative. If he’d been available later during our week we would have booked again. I’d highly recommend booking through Maison Sport.

We booked Pierluca for four half-day lessons - three adults of differing abilities from (almost) beginner to intermediate. He was very good at tailoring the lessons to our varying skills and confidence and pushed us without taking anyone way out of their comfort zone! We all improved over the course of the lessons and, once they finished, I found that if I was loosing control I just needed to remind myself of Pierluca's advice to get back on track.

Pierluca was amazing. He communicated extremely well through the whole booking process. His teaching was wonderful, my 2 Sons are both really young 5 and 3 years old. They where really excited to go skiing with Pierluca every morning for the 3 hours lessons. They now ski blue runs. He is always available, organized and efficient. I will definitely suggest Pierluca and we will be back to enjoy more time in the mountains with him. Ciao

This was my first time skiing and I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor. Pierluca was a great communicater, very patient, friendly and made the sessions fun. I felt very confident when skiing with him and he pushed me to my limits without making me feel worried. I had two sessions with him on subsequent days and improved significantly in the 6 hours I spent with him. I would definitely recommend him so anyone looking for some lessons.

If I could rate Pierluca 6* I would! His English is fantastic and he was easily contactable through Maison Sport. He clearly loves the sport of Skiing and his enthusiasm is infectious! I have had three different ski instructors and must say Pierluca has been the best in terms of pointing out the technical tips on how to improve (I'm terrible!) and was very patient with us. I highly recommend Pierluca to anyone looking for lessons in the area and will definitely look to book him again next season. Thank you Pierluca!

I had a day lesson with Pierluca in Courchevel and he simply made my day. Warm up on the slopes with some technical advice and specific introduction to how to ski powder. Furthermore Pierluca is a super snow school professor: very kind,helpful and above all patient. I highly recommend Pierluca, he will provide the experience you are looking for in the mountains.

I skied for a week with Pierluca in Val D’isere. He was brilliant, knew the resort and the best and safe off piste places, and was great fun throughout.
