I hadn’t been on a ski holiday for 15years having had 2 hip replacements over the last decade. Ella was very clear, patient and also made the 3hr lesson lots of fun. Got myself down some tricky reds by the end of the day and couldn’t have done it without such a useful refresher course in the morning. Thanks again for getting me get back to something I love. Pete

I highly recommend Ella as a ski instructor. We were two beginners. Starting skiing while an adult is definitely not easy but thanks to Ella we managed to learn pretty quickly and got over our fear. We had a lot of fun and after just a few hours we felt pretty comfortable and soon were able to hit some slopes alone and we totally enjoyed it. She gave us plenty of tips on how to improve our skills and thanks to her instructions we got better and better every ride.
Ella is fun to be around, very kind and professional.
We will definitely ski with her again.

Had a truly amazing day skiing La Vallée Blanche with 2 friends guided by Frederico.
He was calm, clear, and appropriately directional as we descended the arrête roped up. Once past the death defying drop, we all relaxed into an entertaining group, with good repartee, skiing nicely chosen route at perfectly judged speed (for us) until we got to the lovely steps!!!
Thanks Frederico. I’d book to do this with you again without a second thought.

Wow! The Vallee Blanch is amazing. In the words of John Tyndall ‘it has the appearance of a sea which has been tossed by a storm and stiffened into rest’. It is a truly world class experience to ski this glacier. Our guide, Frederico, made sure we had all the right gear and to ski safely while also making it fun and informative, with details on the geology, the high passes and the history of the glacier. Highly recommended for competent skiers with a head for heights.
