Customer Reviews

    Myself and my brother had Emma for two afternoons whilst we were in Verbier, she was so much fun and such a great instructor, she really helped us both with our technique and our confidence was definitely improved over the two days. Emma knew the mountains inside and out which was so handy to be able to help us understand the runs we were taking. I would recommend Emma for anyone beginner, intermediate as she was amazing. I’d be happy if I could have her with us the next times we are in Verbier or nearby mountains. Thanks for a great time Emma.

    Emma is an amazing ski instructor. Wether you’re a beginner or an expert, Emma has the skills to help you improve. She pushes you to the next level, whilst making you comfortable as well. Moreover, she is so good at cheering you on. Emma doesn’t only focuses on what needs improvement but also on what’s going well already – that helped me a lot too. I can highly recommend to book lessons with her!

    Wow Emma was awesome. Amazing instructor who has given our two children aged 6 and 8 a love for skiing in one week which is no mean feat. As first timers we weren’t sure if they we were going to enjoy it but we were shocked at how much they improved and enjoyed it by end of day 2. She gave me some really useful skiing tips too, amazing knowledge of the resort, patience, empathic and all round super star! Felt very lucky to have had her for the week.
