Blake was a great teacher for our 11 year old daughter. She was a nervous skier but has improved a lot and gained confidence. Blake was kind and helped her to improve her technique in a fun and relaxed way. Just what she needed. We would book him again if we came back to the area. Thank you, Blake!

Our ski lessons with Blake were excellent. Myself, 12-year old daughter Mei Li and her friend Isabella enjoyed every minute. He teaching style is relaxed and fun but thorough, taking time to make sure the techniques are understood. We learnt so much over a few lessons and greatly improved our skiing style which is a credit to Blake. As my daughter says “Blake is cool and he made the lessons alot of fun with his sense of humour!” – we would definitely recommend him.

I had a brilliant two days with Blake - he's calm, friendly and hugely experienced. He was teaching two skiiers at quite different levels but made us both feel 'looked after'. My skiing has improved dramatically just from 2 sessions with Blake. We also had really interesting chats on the lifts and so on, he was great company. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Blake is an excellent coach who is passionate about seeing progress in those who he teaches. My 14 yr old also really enjoyed his group lesson. He will improve your, or your kids, skiing!

I had a great lesson with blake. I felt like I really improved. Blake was knowledgeable, patient and kind, a winning combination. The conversation flowed like the Amazon as did the wine at lunch. I will definitely be rebooking in the future.

Blake is a great instructor, described as “awesome, funny, cool & kind” by my children. I now get complaints about not having lessons! He’s clear about with instructions and improvements are evident after only one lesson. We can’t recommend him highly enough.

Excellent instructor. Really clear communication of what he wants you to do combined with plenty of patience when you don’t immediately get it. Blake really helped me with my technique and with my wife building her confidence in steeper slopes.

What a guy Blake is! As a below average skier who hasn't been on the slopes in 10 years, Blake gave me the confidence to do things I never thought I would be able to do in two weeks of skiing never mind two days. I would recommend Blake to anyone and will definitely get back in touch with him next year.

My partners 1:1 lesson with Blake was a belated Christmas present, and whilst he was impressed with the innovative gift, the execution was to be out of my hands; but boy did Blake deliver. Blake was engaging and interested, and was thoughtful in his approach. He took Simon out of Courchevel and to the end of the Three Valleys piste map, giving both technical advise and also offering physical explanations. He seemed able to pitch the lesson perfectly for Simon’s ability, and kindly chucked in an off piste black to end the lesson on a high... 🙌

Cannot rate Blake highly enough great instructor who knows the slopes like the back of his hand and his teaching method is second to none. Having more lessons with Blake would be one of the mains reasons to go back to courchevel which i will be doing next year.

Blake has helped me over the last couple of years to improve my ski racing. I first went to his summer camp in 2016 with very limited race knowledge and background. I have trained with Blake over the two years throughout the holidays and now I have been selected for the GBX Skier Cross team. This is all due to Blake’s commitment and excellent coaching over the past few years. I would very highly recommend Blake as instructor for anyone, no matter what ability. Blake is very patient and can adapt to work with anyone. Since I met Blake he has not only helped me with my racing but also successfully trained me to pass both my BASI level 1 & 2. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him!

I was so happy that I booked Blake, I've never skied before, he was very patient with me and I managed to learn the ropes very quickly. I rebooked another lesson in the week and I wish I could have booked more. Excellent ski instructor!

I had several lessons with Blake, all of which were great. In the first lesson the approach was nice and steady as a warm up and to get to know Blake, who is very easy to get along with and friendly, setting us challenges on and off the piste! The lessons were well paced and really good fun, learning lots of new technique and even a few tricks to show off! He paid close attention to how we did and gave helpful advice if something needed changed. I would definitely recommend Blake as an instructor to those of any ability. Martin (Jenny's son)

Just had a two-hour private lesson (for 2) with Blake at the start of our week in Meribel. Great experience from start to finish! After assessing our skiing level, he took us on our first lift. The rest of the lesson was tailored for both of our abilities. He watched our technique individually, challenging us and giving each of us things to work on. Blake has such a personable attitude and really gave us both a lot of confidence. The lesson was the perfect start to our week's skiing and worth every penny. Wouldn't hesitate to book with Blake again when in the three valleys.
