British ski instruction in Les Deux Alpes

Les Deux Alpes off-piste skiing

Whatever type of skier you are, Les Deux Alpes has skiing to suit. There is great back-country and off-piste skiing with access to La Grave. Perfectly groomed high altitude blues give you the space to perfect your carving. Steeper pistes abound to challenge hardened black run tickers. For those wanting to get away from it all, the nearby Ecrins National park offers fantastic ski touring.

As a fully qualified British ski instructor, I can teach up to the highest level of skiing on or off the piste. I have spent over a decade teaching skiers from beginner to expert. All ages and ability levels are welcome.

I hold the top British ski teaching qualification (BASI Level 4) with full French equivalence, along with the International Mountain Leader award. Living in Les Deux Alpes year-round, gives many opportunities to explore the wonderful Oisans/Ecrins region.

International Mountain Leader

An International Mountain Leader, qualified through Mountain Training UK, has the same status as an Accompagnateur Moyen Montagne. This means I can lead single and multi-day hikes, treks, and snowshoe excursions in the Alps or greater ranges. Combining the IML with ski instructor qualifications makes multi-day ski tours an option too.

This location high in the Ecrins gives access to superb mountaineering and hiking. Whether on foot, snowshoe or touring ski, there are routes to suit all levels of experience and fitness.

What’s on the site

On the Posts page, you will find write-ups of ski tours and off-piste ski routes in the local region and further afield. If any of these interest you, you can book myself or a colleague to ski most of them with you. The exceptions are glacial routes where you need a UIAGM mountain guide.

The Courses page covers the ski courses I offer or deliver, particularly the week-long off-piste courses. I can also be booked privately or for other group lessons through the European Ski School, or you can ask me directly about what I can offer.

The Local Area page is a growing resource of local resort profiles and local information. See the Deux Alpes resort profile for more about our ski area. I will post local news from time to time, as interesting events occur. Recently, I have started writing articles about the Alpine environment and culture. Let me know if there is anything else you would like to see.

Ski Schools

Ski School TrainingI work with the European Ski and Snowboard School here in Les Deux Alpes. It is a fantastic mid-sized international ski school. There are around twenty passionate and highly qualified instructors from the UK and across Europe. Through the school, I work with private clients, groups and most of the major tour companies bringing guests to the resort.

I also work with Tip Top Ski Coaching in summer and autumn, coaching on the TipTop Gap Course and running the Junior Freeride camp.

If you want to ski with me get in touch here or you can book me through the ski school.
