I took up skiing at the age of 3 in Italy, on the Gran Sasso Mountain range. Following on, I trained and had numerous competitive successes in Central Italy. Then I became a fully certified Italian and French ski instructor and I have been teaching professionally ever since. I have worked in Italy, Australia and France. Every expert was once a beginner. Dream big and start now!

  • Excellent with all abilities
  • Great with beginners

Ugo is a fantastic instructor. My boyfriend booked Ugo to teach me to ski and I was nervous having never even put skis on before, but Ugo was so friendly and patient he built up my confidence levels and my nerves disappeared. From being unable to stand in the snow with skis on, after 4 days of lessons with him I was skiing confidently and with technique. Ugo communicated clearly during the lessons, came up with fun drills to improve my abilities, and made learning to ski really enjoyable. I would highly recommend Ugo to everyone, and I hope to see him again. Dominique

Ugo is a fantastic instructor for all abilities. He taught my 5-year-old son and myself during our week in Courchevel. His enthusiasm and sense of fun were perfect for my son. He has such an encouraging and inventive way of teaching and tapped into his interests which made the whole experience truly magical. Every morning my son would shout 'When can I go skiing with Ugo?" For me, a more experienced skier, Ugo was brilliant at ironing out some bad habits I'd picked up along the way and getting my technique back on track so I was able to ski better, be more in control and have more confidence. Ugo is kind, patient, very clear in his instruction and, most importantly, good fun. I could not recommend him more highly! Thank you Ugo we will see you again next year!

Ugo and I quickly set out what we wanted to achieve from the lessons. I have around 12-15 weeks of skiing and was keen to improve my technique for more technical and adverse conditions. Ugo was clear in his instructions and was personally invested in my development which made progress fun and engaging. Would highly recommend a session with Ugo. @Ugo thank you for your tutelage. Loved our lessons.

Ugo was brilliant in our lessons we had. He was always early and we'd go straight off. On the first day he took me on some greens to assess my level, then we would regularly stop for him to give me feedback and tips to focus on. After my first 2 hour lesson I went from snowplough turns to parallels on greens, and helped me pick up some speed. My next lesson had us put the tips into practice on more greens and blues and by the end, Ugo took me on the steepest blue in the resort which I managed to parallel the majority of. Ugo was super friendly the whole time, never took me on slopes I didn't feel comfortable on, and really helped with my skiing which I continued to focus on alone the rest of my week. I have no bad words to say! Thank you so much Ugo! I will definitely be in touch again if I come back to the 3 valleys :)

Ugo was fantastic. He explained concepts simply and clearly and I felt my skiing improving rapidly as a result. Having not skied for a number of years he quickly got me back into the groove, enjoying and feeling comfortable on more challenging runs. He is very knowledgeable and thoroughly professional, as well as fun and friendly. I can’t recommend Ugo highly enough. Thank you Ugo for two very enjoyable mornings!

We found Ugo very professional, friendly, patient and his instructions were easy to understand and follow. Ugo was flexible and always willing to accommodate our requested times. He was skilful at coaching all the various skiing levels within our group, we all improved significantly, and had a lot of fun in the process. We will definitely request Ugo to instruct us again - hopefully soon!

Ugo is a fantastic instructor! His love for skiing is clear, as are his incredible skiing skills. He took us (a group of mixed ability) on a really fun guided session across the Three Valleys, along a great route that was both challenging and also took in some lovely views. He provided insightful tips and hints for improving our technique. Ugo speaks English fluently (as well as a number of other languages!). I would wholeheartedly recommend Ugo for either lessons or guided sessions!!

Choose Ugo! 2 four hour sessions with our 14 year old improved his skiing and confidence more than many weeks of ski school. Ugo also helped Mum with her techinique and gave us an introduction to off-piste, which took us all from hopelessly falling over to staying upright and turning in powder. Ugo is a highly intelligent, capable instructor with great patience and the ability to commmunicate one step at a time technique improvements that produce fast results. He has a great sense of humuor, is easy going, speaks excellent English (and many other languages) and was definitely the highlight of our week in Courcheval. We will be back next year with him again and would not hesitate to reccomend him to others.

Sarah had never skied before, so this was her first experience on snow. Ugo was very helpful, supportive, and took lots of time to ensure that the experience was both rewarding and enjoyable. He was very flexible regarding meeting places and times, ensuring that this was an enjoyable holiday for all of us. Ugo's command of English is excellent, so there was never any problem with language difficulty, and his warm and friendly manner throughout ensured that Sarah made swift progress. We would thoroughly recommend that you hire Ugo (unless it is when we are going skiing, when we will be hiring him!!!)

Ugo is a great instructor, able to help beginners as well as advanced skiers. He’s a great communicator, able to flex the demands of the group, or able to do one on one lessons. And, all the while, making skiing fun!

I have snow boardedfor about 20 years and always pondered about learning to ski. For my 60 th birthday I took the plunge along with my snowboarding daughters. We hired Ugo on a 1:4 basis, so enjoyed the experience went back for a second week with him. This year Maureen and I hired him for the week. As a competitive dinghy sailor and fanatical kite surfer I have learnt the hard way about instruction and coaching. It’s a real skill! Ugo was brilliant always building on our skills almost with out us knowing there’s a huge difference between instructing and coaching. Ugo is brilliant at both and great company we have no hesitation to recommend him and coming back next year for more
