“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!”

“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 yr!“

Jacopo is an an open-minded person in love with sports and the outdoors. He was born and raised in Courmayeur (Italy, 20 minutes away from Chamonix) where he started skiing when he was very young and since then he has never stopped learning from the mountains. Becoming an instructor gave him the right tools to be able to make skiing such an easy and enjoyable thing for everyone. He will take you from your first time to some freeride, carving or freestyle. No matter what your dream or level is, he can provide you with some quality time around the Alps.
Experience: 6 years
“I’ve been skiing for years but needed to tweak my style as a few bad habits had crept in and my confidence was low. I had a two hour lesson with Jacopo and he gave me pointers as to how to ski confidently and tweak my style. Jacopo was very patient and kept to my pace (I’m not a fast skier) which helped me practice technique. Afterwards, I skied with family who could see a difference in my skiing and I managed a black without feeling out of control. I would recommend a lesson with Jacopo.”

“As a family of five, we gave Jacopo the challenge of managing a group that included a complete beginner and a parent returning to skiing after 20 years having sworn, never again. Jacopo assessed us all and divided the time between us, making sure everyone made some progress. He was flexible and encouraging. Our reward was that after three sessions with him, on our last day we had a splendid outing skiing altogether as a family. “

“Jacopo was absolutely brilliant with my two girls (7 and 9). Despite my youngest being a bit scared he had them both having fun and on the slopes in no-time. They had such a great time, and were confidently going down blue slopes and happy making turns after the 1-2 days. Jacopo was extremely friendly, always on time and well organised and spoke excellent English. I can’t recommend him highly enough! ”

“What a guy! In no time at all I felt significantly more confident. Jacopo is an incredible skier/instructor and takes time to understand your level. Following this, I was provided with a structured lesson which improved my skiing dramatically. I would certainly recommend Jacopo to anyone. Thank you for an incredible time.”

“We hired Jacapo for 6 days to teach our 6 and 7 year old daughters to ski for 3 hours each afternoon they had only been in ski school the year before and both struggled. After the 2nd day with Jacapo they where both able to ski after day 3 they where out on the green and blue runs with us in the morning and having further lessons with Jacapo in the afternoon. He is a really friendly guy and patient with the kids I would highly recommend him and we will hire him again next year to give the whole family a freshen up”

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.

“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!”
