Born in the Alps, I offer you a personalized and caring human relationship, a pedagogy based on simplicity and competence for a perfect combination of technical progress and a discovery of the natural environment.
In any case, my long experience has taught me to adapt perfectly to your levels and personal requests or needs to give you all the means to enjoy your ski holiday with more serenely.
An effective pedagogy for you and fun for your children, a clear technical assessment followed by appropriate exercises for everyone associated with the deep discovery of the ski area of the 3 Valleys.
Enjoy the best spots depending on the quality of the snow, weather conditions and of course your level of skiing or fitness, as well as access to the priority passages lifts.
What a lovely man, very kind a patient and a great teacher. My skiing has come on so much.
Excellent instructor who knew exactly how far to push me and challenge me both technically and with speed. He also understood when to pull back a little. A fantastic week skiing with Chris - thank you!!
We stayed at Courchevel 1650 and Christian taught my 8 & 6 year old children who already had 4 weeks experience. He always arrived 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled time and was very flexible in the meet/drop off locations and willing to change with our plans. The kids loved his lessons and really progressed under his tutelage. We’ll definitely be getting in touch again next year. We only booked 3 hours a day but will book 4 hours next time to give him a greater range of places to take them during the lessons. Thanks Christian! Ben
Christian took care of us the whole week. He is a great ski instructor, very patient, long experience, very knowledgeable and brilliant with kids. On top of that, he is a very nice person to spend the week with. Strongly recommended!
Chris was exactly the instructor I needed. He really understood what I wanted to get out of my 3 morning sessions with him. I had a serious knee injury skiing last year whilst learning to ski and after having lessons for a week, I wanted an instructor who would push me but not so far as to destroy the confidence I had built up and also to take me further technically so that my parallel turns would be pretty much parallel! After skiing for no more that 2 minutes he identified an issue with my upper ski and gave me techniques to stop it catching and continued to give me tips and instruction whilst still getting some serious "miles" in. I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend Chris for all sorts of scenarios as I believe he has a knack for understanding what is required and is able to deliver. Furthermore he is a lovely guy.
Christian has taught my family for the last 2 seasons and booked again for a 3rd! A surperb experience progressing beginners in a mixed age group quickly but carefully to an intermediate level. Very personable, excellent english, clear instruction and encouragement, and a character that is respected and enjoyed by children and adults alike. Totally reliable - highly recommended
Christian began teaching our son, Noah, in 2011 when he was six years old and almost a complete beginner. We have returned to La Tania year-after-year, sometimes more than once a season, and always book Christian. Christian has taken Noah from a small boy who could only snow plough to a 14 year-old who can ski anywhere, on any slope and in any condition, and he does so confidently and safely and with respect for other skiers. Christian has instilled Noah with a love of skiing and the mountain environment. Over the years, Noah has always enjoyed his lessons with Christian, from the younger years of singing songs and finding hidden tracks through the trees, to jumping and racing in the Family Parks and now exploring off-piste areas. We feel very fortunate to have found Christian as a ski instructor when we did all those years ago and Noah continues to look forward to seeing him and learning from him each year.
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
