Sited in the Tarentaise Valley , La Plagne really  is a hidden gem.

 

 

La Plagne Ski School

Dani

Skiing has been my life ever since I was introduced to it at 18 months old. Growing up with very supportive parents, some talent and a lot of hard work, I travelled the world as part of the British Alpine Ski Team competing in the FIS Championships, at World Junior Championships and in the Youth Olympics.

For financial reasons I retired from ski racing at 18 years old. Not wishing to leave the sport I loved I went on to become a ski instructor gaining the highest level of qualification possible through BASI when I was  aged 20 years old.  I hold BASI Level 4 ISTD  -International Ski Teacher Diploma and my French Carte Pro. This allows me to work and teach in France.

After working as a ski instructor in resorts such as Val d’Isere, Tignes, Courchevel, Meribel and Morzine, in 2013 Craig and I decided to set up our own independent ski-school to offer personalised ski instruction which brings out the best and develops everyone to a level they wish to attain and are capable of.

I have two young children, who both love the outdoors!

Craig

With a real passion for the mountains and a love of the outdoors and sport has led me to base myself here in the Alps since I was 21.

Since 1995 I have been teaching people to ski working in Morzine, Verbier, Courmayeur, La Thuile and more recently La Plagne. Like Dani I hold the highest level of ski instructor qualification possible through BASI (British Association of Snowsport Instructors)  Alpine Level 4 ISTD and my French Carte Pro. Like her this allows me to work and teach people to ski in France.

Being outdoors is what brings me alive and in the summer I work as a raft guide and also represent the Scottish Rafting Association as a raft guide trainer. More recently I have been teaching people standup paddle boarding on the lakes and rivers.

In skiing as well as for rafting and standup paddleboarding I love working with complete beginners as well as those who are more competent. My greatest pleasure is teaching and helping them and sharing their joy as they start to master a new skill.

Why Choose Us?

We’ve told you a bit about ourselves, our backgrounds and qualifications. We also like to think of ourselves and Lime SnowSports as a company that gives that little bit more and our returning students many of whom have become personal friends are testament to that.
We do think however that with what is essentially our ‘try before you buy service’ you will learn more about us – our passion, our understanding, our determination and our experience. And to prove this we actively encourage first time clients to ‘talk’ to us before booking.

Tell us what you want. Is it private ski lessons, or a group ski lesson? Is it ski lessons for kids? Have you skied before or not? Once we understand what it is you are looking for and if necessary factor in the different levels of ability and age, say within a family, then together we work out the programme and a cost, which we think you will find very reasonable.

This is the service we offer and we think it unique not just for a British ski school in La Plagne but you will also be hard pushed to find this in any other ski resorts.
