If you're going skiing to Courcheval & want to book an instructor (regardless of skill), I implore you to book Eric! He is a simply outstanding teacher. He taught two of us for 12 hours (across three days); one of us being utterly afraid, after a nasty skiing accident. Eric has a fantastic temperament, which is exactly what you need when learning something new or improving on technique. He can tell how you are feeling from your body language and will push you as far as he thinks you are capable. He is also great at picking up on when you are tired. I cannot thank Eric enough for his kindness, thoroughness and patience last week. A huge mental block has been removed and I enjoyed skiing, after 22 years! Thank you and see you in 2021.

I really appreciated my lessons with Eric! Being a complete beginner just after 3 classes I felt like I made some real progress and could even go on a blue run with him. Eric is really patient and explains everything very well, also extremely helpful - couldn’t find a better instructor! My friend who is a very good skier also took a class with him to advance her skills and was very positive at the end on progression of her technique. Highly recommended Eric to anyone from beginner to more advanced skiers!

Eric was great, I would 100% recommend Eric. He takes his time to explain the practical side and how to rectify any mistakes/ bad habits that you are making.My skiing has improved greatly and I’m now going down reds with no problems. Thank you Eric x

I cannot recommend Eric enough. We had our lesson on my first day back on the slopes this year, and by the end of the morning he’d totally got my confidence up, given me lots of tips for the week, and got me very comfortable on reds (plus did a black - didn’t expect that on first morning!). So clear, patient and confidence inspiring. Highly recommended! Chris (intermediate level)

Éric was an excellent teacher and made me feel very comfortable and increased my confidence on parallel turns (I was very nervous). Éric was able to make me feel at ease while giving me the technical instruction and help me apply it with much more confidence than I imagined.

Eric is a very knowledgable and experienced ski instructor. He was able to tell at which point throughout the day I was able to advance in the lesson, making it a very productive one. He also explained the theory of the correct technique very clearly and made it easy to understand. I believe the day of the lesson was my 7th day ever skiing, and by the end of it, I was able to do a red run which I never expected to get to so early! If I can do it, anyone can! I highly recommend Eric as a ski instructor as he will give you the confidence to take on pistes that you wouldn't think you'd be able to, therefore allowing you to fully experience the 3 Vallees skiing region and why it is amongst the world's best places to ski. Lastly, I left my neck warmer in his bag and he brought it back to our hotel the next day, so kind! Many thanks Eric! Karan and Anushka

Eric was fantastic and I would highly recommend him as a ski instructor! It was our first time skiing and Eric was super patient with us and gave us some great instruction to ensure we picked up skiing safely. His communication was clear and he made us feel comfortable allowing us to progress at our own pace. We were extremely happy that we worked with Eric and we cant wait to go skiing again! Many thanks Eric!! Glen and Caren (UK)

We have been skiing with Eric annually since 2011, sometimes multiple weeks a season. I did not start skiing until in my 40s and simply wanted to be able to ski well enough to ski with my husband, who learned as a child, and our son, who was also starting to learn the same time as myself. My husband and I share lessons together and started with morning lessons, five days each week during our ski holidays, and now book Eric for 6 full-days each time we come to La Tania. I have learned so much and continue to improve each and every holiday. Most importantly I can ski with my family and I fell confident and safe on the slopes. I am often asked why we continue to have lessons when we know how to ski? We continue because we want to continue to improve and we enjoy learning from Eric. Also, Eric's knowledge of the ski area means he knows where to go and at what time to help make the most of our precious few days/weeks on snow. If I could give more than five stars, I would!

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.

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
