You can read what some of our clients have to say about their personal experience of skiing with us for a more meaningful perspective on what we could do for you too.

“It says it all when the children (15 and 17) said of our Courchevel holiday this season ‘It’s the best skiing holiday we’ve ever had’. The children and I have been instructed and ski guided by Steve since 2005.

It is his knowledge of the mountains, his extraordinary ability to find the best slopes for any ability from highly experienced to nervous in any kind of condition, and his outstanding ability to give confidence and to break through technical issues.

Tie this in with superb lunch time stops, and at the end of the day, exactly the right apres ski bar—this is why we always have the ‘best skiing holiday ever’ if Steve is involved.”

–  Vinny, Patrick and Imogen

“Steve and Jules are wonderful people, they came very highly recommended through a friend of mine who has been using them for years and I couldn’t recommend them enough.

Having only skied for a couple of days prior to my lessons with Steve my confidence levels soon changed as I felt incredibly relaxed and safe. Time spent working on my technique at the beginning of the week was key and I soon felt confident enough to take on new challenges without even realising.

I left that week with a new love for the slopes and a huge sense of achievement with my development having tackled red runs and even the odd black run within only a few days. That’s all thanks to Steve and I’m already looking forward to next season.”

Party time at the Folie Douce in Meribel Courchevel

“My wife and I were relatively late starters to skiing – late forties and mid fifties respectively. When we first met Steve, we were in the early stages of our skiing development, with just three weeks previous experience, and lacking the confidence to explore the mountains on anything other than green and blue runs.

Every second spent with Steve is productive and fun, and it is testament to his skill as an instructor, that within a few days we were tackling red runs without a seconds thought, completing the occasional black run, and dabbling in the bumps and deep snow off the sides of the piste. In essence, Steve opened up the mountains for us and made us feel we were on our way to becoming ‘real’ skiers! We have a long way to go yet, but look forward spending more time with Steve when we next visit the 3 Valleys.”

“We enjoyed our time with Steve and will definitely ski with him when we are next in Courchevel / Meribel. His holistic approach to skiing, focusing not just on technique but also on having fun, provided the perfect balance between being challenged and being on holiday.”

Children in private ski lesson on Courchevel slopes

“We’re a ‘modern family’ of 9!!! And we decided to hire a guide to get the most of our week at the 3 Valleys.

Couldn’t be a better decision!!!

Stephen is a great skier, guide, instructor, and a very kind person, he took the most not only from the slopes, but from each one of the group, choosing the best slopes, the less people, and pulling us a step forward in our ski level. We also felt completely secure on days with bad visibility, following Stephen in the fog!

I cannot imagine a new ski vacation without Stephen flying in front of us!

Thank you for all your guidance and assistance, we had an incredible good experience with you!”

–  Santiago and family

“Steve has been a big part of my development as a skier since I was 12 years old. 8 years later, his creative and dynamic lessons have influenced and inspired me to do my BASI 1 & 2 Instructor qualification in the 2015/2016 season.

Steve’s passion for skiing, the mountains and technical equipment means that he understands how to create an enjoyable yet worthwhile lesson that will not only aid your development as a skier but will also make sure you have fun in order to make your time in the mountains a memorable experience. I would thus feel that Steve is an ideal instructor/guide for everyone.”

Kids private ski lesson in the fun park in Courchevel

“We can’t imagine skiing without Steve and Jules.

As a family we have skied with them since 2010 and I don’t really know where to begin in terms of describing what a difference it makes to our holiday experience as well as our skiing ability.

Steve and Jules find the best snow (always), the quietest pistes and the loveliest restaurants; and this is matched by the low key manner in which they encourage each of us to improve and go beyond what we think is possible. We thought that we were reasonably competent skiers before we met Steve and Jules! Now we feel as if we can ski anywhere – on piste or off piste.

We have great fun with them whether we are skiing as a family or, on some occasions, it’s just adults or just children. Everything is bespoke. Nothing is too much trouble. Amazingly our family is happy to ski together and I’m sure that’s down to Steve and Jules!

We are delighted that we’ve become good friends. And that’s what skiing with Steve and Jules is like: skiing with your friends who also happen to be incredibly knowledgeable about the area, experts in helping you improve your skiing and great fun to spend time with.”

–  Penny and family

“Having been skiing with both Steve and Jules for the past few years, I can safely say that they are both absolutely fantastic!

Their combined wealth of skiing related information, always delivered in an understandable way, really makes me feel like I know what I need to adapt in my own skiing in order to progress. And their knowledge of the resort means that we always find a great place for lunch or a hot chocolate stop too!”

They both go above and beyond when it comes to being friendly and helpful both on and off snow, from sorting out wrongly fitted equipment to cracking jokes on the lifts. I always feel safe skiing with Steve and Jules, but have an enormous amount of fun doing it!
