    Kate is a great ski instructor. My 5 year old daughter had 4 full days of instructions with Kate in February 2022. Kate taught her every day in a fun, caring and professional way. My daughter learned and improved greatly. She became a very confident skier and loved to ski because of Kate.
    We are very thankful and grateful for Kate’s energy and patience.

    Clearly the best of the best!

  • Jessica and Erick Bruno

    Kate was friendly, caring and ever so patient. She had the perfect way of knowing exactly what our son needed and how to communicate with him to ensure clarity and feeling safe. He would come home each afternoon giggling and telling us stories of what Kate said or did – he adored her. We feel so lucky that she was his instructor as it gave him the confidence and joy to want to continue!

  • Giles Clark

    We two adults and two children had good, fun lessons for three mornings from Kate. We are all of different abilities and each learnt a lot and saw our skiing markedly improve.
