Get Social

At Alpine Masters we have wonderful clients, who become friends and return year on year to ski with us. Here’s a small sample of the skiing feedback we’ve received in Courchevel, Meribel and La Tania recently,

Dear Simon, the boys LOVED skiing with you and we’ll definitely be back next year for more of the same. You’re more than a little bit Tina Turner. Simply the best

Berni & Susie Barton, Nick & Mel Purves, Ben & Will Barton, Harry Purves

Dear Susie, we had a great week skiing in Courchevel 1850, I think probably the best since ever and that’s thanks to our great instructors. Please say thank you to them all, especially Simon and Tom, for us and I’m sure we will be booking again with you for next year

Gary & Dawn Barlow, Mark Owen @ Take That

For Greg Rutherford, it was just another day on the slopes; admittedly a mighty fine one given the early-season luxury of pistes to ourselves, not to mention some decent enough snow and clear blue skies. It helps to have a guide: Simon Jones from Alpine Masters, a British ski school based in Méribel. UK Athletics will be happy to hear we stuck to the pistes. This was partly because there wasn’t any powder but also because Simon wasn’t taking any chances now that Greg, who only recently recovered from a ruptured hamstring, is injury free. Simon – thank you very much indeed and might see you in the valley in the summer”.

Simon, thank you so much – the children had a great time. According to them the best instructor ever! Hoping to see you next year

Iona & Robbie Buxton, Mark Eyre

Just wanted to email you a thank you for teaching George and Emma on the reds and blacks. Emma’s older siblings were better, quicker and nastier – not anymore! Thank you

Linda Carling

I just wanted to drop you a quick message to thank you for arranging the booking of the ski lessons in Courchevel and to thank Simon for his time. The kids had a great time and enjoyed every second of the lessons, see you next year!

Andrew & Sarah Wood, Caitlin & George Wood

That was our third year with you and the teenagers loved it as much as the first year. Thank you and booking for 2015

Gregor & Euan Johnstone, Rachel & Eve Brown

Great news that we have Simon. He taught Lulu to ski years ago and is a bit of a legend in our house!!

Emma, John, Lulu & Livi Hosking

Back again and fabulous as always – hope to see you again next year

Jacques Dejardin @ Jamie Oliver

Thank you and booking for 2015! Our 3rd year with you and amazing as always, see you next season!

Emma & Charlie Hill

Thank you Simon – having skied with almost every instructor in Meribel I wouldn’t ski with anyone else. As you know I plan my holiday around your availability, thank you again

Kenneth Tyrell

Once again we had a wonderful time with you and please book us in for next year

Amanda Mills, Janet Saunders, Alisa Higgins

Now in our 3rd year with you & I just wanted to say that Jules and I had a great time again – thank you!

Justin & Jules Nicholas, Julie Cairns

We’re already booked in with you for next year! An amazing week – thank you so much

Shahin & Sammy Samadi

Our second year with you in Courchevel 1650 and you still beat the other schools hands down. A great day with Simon and we skied all the way to the Orelle valley followed by a lovely lunch at the Fruitiere (Folice Douce) in Val Thorens. We had the BEST week (could have done with every day like the Tuesday but at least we had one)! Really keen to book again next year and we’ll definitely be in touch with you if we do. Thanks for our day skiing I think it was the nicest day skiing I can remember! Really such fun

Larissa & Greg Atkins

Dear Simon, after our lunch at the Cap Horn I asked for powder, to ski in the sun & no shade and to avoid all bubble lifts. I thought I’d set you an impossible task but once again you pulled it out of the bag, thank you & see you next year

Gordon Singer, Equity Partner, Elliott Advisors

I’ve been coming back to you for 3 years and it just keeps getting better and better – thank you

Emily Rogerson-Reah

You are brilliant. Thank you! Thank you so much for such a wonderful time. You were stars and I am so grateful that you taught the children to ski. Thank you for the photographs! Very elegant. My one and only tumble. Thank you again

Mary Ann Lutyens party, Tanya & Freddie Cartwright, Alice & Jules Hudson, Will & Millie Tamworth

Thanks Simon you really made our holiday our best ever! Will says goodbye and a big thanks, he says he will be back stronger and faster next time! Thanks again it was unreal and I’ll let you know when I’m uploaded on Redbull. Take care and thank you so much again

David, Sasha, Van & Sahrya Kennedy, Will & Nikita Podmore

Thanks and booking for 2014! Our lessons were great last week and if we hadn’t had the powder lesson on Weds it would have really affected my confidence for the rest of the week.
Only got back yesterday but we had such a great time I’ve booked for next year coming the same week in Feb. Lee and I would love to have lessons with you again but with an extra lesson on the Friday as well. We don’t want you snapped up by anyone else so want to book Mon 3rd Feb 9 – 11, Weds 5th Feb 9 – 11 and Fri 7th Feb 9 – 11 meeting at the bottom of the Pralong chair like this year. I understand this is £420 this year.
Charlie would also like individual private lessons at the same time as us. I understand this is also £420 this year.
Please can you pencil us in, then let us know when you have next year’s prices so that we can confirm

Emma Hill

Dear Simon, thanks so much for yesterday we loved it and feel so much more relaxed. Today has been brilliant. Again so many thanks and see you next year, Love Serena

Lady Serena and Sir James Graham

We always use Alpine Masters who are great and on our wavelength. (sent to Tour Operator)

Fe and Mark Rammel

Just wanted to thank you for a fabulous couple of days skiing. Every bone in my body thought it would be a disaster, and I would be skiing on the flat with 4 year olds for two days.
But after I went off alone this afternoon, I was weaving, parallel skiing, and even threw in a couple of 360 turns.
Just brilliant, had a ball, and couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you!
Fab fab fab
Hope the rest of the season is great and half term not too painful

Jacques Dejardin @ Jamie Oliver

Had a lovely morning with Tom – perfect conditions. Thank you

Amanda Mills

My skiing came on nicely – you were great – v patient and made it really fun for me – so definitely worth the money to go with private sessions. And I managed the week without any significant injuries – despite a crazy last night on the luge…

Lucy Pearson

Dear Simon, Michelle, Rachel and I are in the process of organising a girly ski trip…..Please can you let me know if you will be able to bring me back up to my previous standard (lol!!) ie. take me out skiing for 4 hours each morning or at least the Friday and the Saturday. As both you and the girls know my skiing holiday is not complete without you. Really looking forward to seeing you, xxxx

Tracy Neilson

I booked with you guys this time last yearand had private lessons – you were great and very patient. We are looking to book some ski lessons for 2 hours each day from Meribel resort?

Sunny Bansal

Hi Alpine Masters,

You helped myself and a colleague (Duncan Kellaway) with some individual (1 on 2) lessons around this time last year at Meribel – we very much enjoyed the lessons. I am returning with the same group to Meribel this year on the above dates (although sadly Duncan isn’t). I would like to arrange for 1-1 coaching on both dates – can you help?

Peter Allan, Freshfields

Hi Susie
So lovely to hear from you and very sad that you’re all booked up. I should have contacted you sooner, silly me! It would be lovely to see you so can we take your remaining Friday afternoon session? It will be our last afternoon and the children will look forward to it, LOL xxx

Lottie Walker

We had a fab lunch at the Bel Air and just made it back by the skin of our teeth. Your route was perfect and we made full use of our last day skiing. H is so confident and G and S racing with their cousins – thank you SO much for your patience and kindness, it made an enormous difference to our holiday – I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and we will hopefully see you again this season, with lots of love from us all, xxxxx

Annabel Williams and Family

Last year my partner Andrew and his son Hector enjoyed a fantastic (and beautifully tiring!) day with Simon. We’ve just made a last-minute booking to come out to Mottaret again, and wonder if Simon might be available any days on the above dates.
Do hope so!
All the best”
