Our line-up of instructors has been handpicked for their great experience, their outstanding teaching knowledge, and people skills. They hold the highest qualifications an instructor can get in the world but most importantly they are fun and easy going!



Born on skis and raised in the Chamonix Valley, Jorick grew up as a ski racer, competing at a national level. After becoming a fully qualified ski/snowboard instructor, he traveled the world for many years and he lived and taught skiing in amazing places like New-Zealand and Japan! For a couple of years now he has settled back in his hometown where he is sharing his passion for skiing.

“Jorick was an amazing instructor he had a hard task taking us on! I had not skied for 17 years, my youngest Freddie had never skied and my eldest Jack had only skied once with the school. On our first day Jo spent two hours and at the end of the session we were all confident and ready for the mountain. At the end of our second lesson Jack completed a red and Freddie was skiing difficult blues. Highly recommend, he made our holiday”

“This was our second year skiing in Chamonix and one of the main reasons we returned was to have lessons with Jo. He’s so lovely and patient and really goes the extra mile to help and make your experience amazing. We’ve progressed doll so well and quickly with Jo’s guidance and can’t wait to return next year! Thanks so much Jorick!”

“Jorick or Jojo is a great instructor. I have had lessons for the last few years and he has really helped me with technique and confidence on more difficult terrain. Jojo is incredibly laidback for a French instructor and easy to get on with, but don’t think he will take his eye off your progress for a minute and is careful to keep slowly pushing you in the right direction! Speaks perfect English and knows the slopes like the back of his hand. Can’t recommend enough. Both my children now want to ski with him when we come to Chamonix!”

Estelle L. – 16/02/2018

“Cannot recommend higher! We are a family of 5 people with mixed ski experience and expectation. Jorick did what is needed and beyond to make sure all of us enjoyed this amazing holiday. Safety always comes first, we experience crispy sunny days and heavy windy snowy days, Jojo has an excellent local knowledge and always knows where to go (or not to). Jo is an absolute star with children, a ton of patient and technic really helped Alex developing his skills and introduce ski to Henry for the 1st time. Thanks a lot to Jo, my family is hooked in, we will soon be back for another ski holiday. “

“Quite simply Jojo is the best instructor ever!! He has made it so much fun and is part of the reason we have been to Cham twice in 1 year! Can’t recommend him enough. See you
next year!”

“I can only highly recommend Jorick – he was professional, engaging and friendly. His level of English was very good so that the technical aspects of the lesson were easy to understand. He used positive reenforcement and encouragement well. The lessons were for my teenage son – he enjoyed the three days of skiing with Jorick. His feedback for Jorick is 6 stars out of 5!”

Son of a world cup ski racer, he was naturally put on skis from the moment he could walk. A few years later his love of the sport led him to become an instructor in both skiing and snowboarding. Since then he is focusing on his students to bring the best out of them and achieve their goals and dreams.

“Arthur  is an outstanding instructor & good bloke. As a self taught skier, I had acquired some bad habits which Arthur quickly recognised & corrected. Before the lesson, I could get down blue runs but with little style. By the 2nd run of the lesson, I felt much more comfortable on blues and had corrected some of the bad habits. We did the main Cornu run (red) & I felt more confident on that than in previous attempts. As a 70 yr old Australian who rarely skis, I highly recommend & especially Arthur. “

Dr Kevin Moore – 20/03/19

“We’ve had such a memorable day out with Arthur. Our technique has definitely improved and we now feel confident enough to ski off piste on our own! Arthur was really laid back and made sure we always felt safe on the mountain. We’ll book with skibex and Arthur again next winter!”

“We really hit the jackport finding Skibex. Arthur our family’s instructor was fantastic – cannot recommend him and Skibex enough! This was our first family skiing holiday to Chamonix. We met Arthur daily and he was just perfect for our kids – age range 12-18yrs. Total beginners to start and by the end of the week they were skiing a red run and full of confidence. Arthur was patient, totally trustworthy and safe but also lots of fun. We cannot recommend this company enough and will definitely be using them again.”

“I was very comfortable in the capable hands of Arthur. He massively enhanced our holiday and we are really thankful for that.”

Mankit – 18/02/19 – CheckYeti

“Excellent coaching for beginner adults, Arthur was attentive to our needs and adapted the teachings to our actual progression. This raised our skiing levels much higher than I expected in a single lesson.”

Alexandre – 26/01/19 – CheckYeti

“I brought my wife and 2 boys to CHAMONIX for a few days. I have some ski experience but they have never been on skis. Jorick set us up with Arthur for a day of private lessons for the three of them and it was great! He was fluent in English and very patient with my beginners. He is also very kind and helpful. If we manage another trip next year I will definitely try to get Arthur to teach again.”

Gabriel is the best ski teacher – kind, patient and clear. He has helped me understand what I need to tweak to ski better, both on and off piste.

Great experience, I recommend. Good and clear communication  during the reservation process, and excellent lessons with our instructor Gabriel, a very experienced and friendly skier.

My partner Corinne and I had the pleasure of being taught by Gabriel. He was super patient with us and was a fantastic instructor. We were stuck at our hotel and they went out of their way to organise a pick up so we didn’t miss out on our lesson. Gabriel was even nice enough to drop us off at our hotel. Overall a great experience and we highly recommend skibex.

“Easy reservation and very transparent! The class include a pick up to the hotel. Gabriel was punctual and from the beggining easy going to talk to. Before choosing Skibex I have personally spend myself going through different reviews of other ski schools and this guy’s got the best when it comes to having fun and learning how to ski. At the end of the class I definitely felt it was very useful in order to improve my intermediate level. Gabriel was always encouraging to be confident with myself and highlighting what could I do better. I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for ski classes at Chamonix to contact Skibex!”
