What is your teaching experience?

I started in Calabria (south of Italy) where only a few people know that you can ski in winter. Then I went to teach in Madonna di Campiglio and Sestriere (East and West Italian Alps) and finally I found my lovely darling... the French Alps!

 

Favourite place to ski and why?

Les Arcs with its fantastic slopes and off piste.  It is a ski resort where all ski levels can enjoy it's variety of terrain, from the beginners to off piste skiers.

 

What do you love about Les Arcs?

Les Arcs’ slopes offers long descents, plenty of steep stuff and plenty to keep intermediates happy, plus woods to head to in a storm. And for those who really like to travel on skis, the link to La Plagne takes the amount of skiing into the Trois Vallées league.

 

What do you do in the summer?

During the summer I work in the tourism industry.  I have an apartment where I host travellers that come to visit my country and bring individuals and groups as a tour leader around the south of Italy.

 

Why should a client choose you?
To experience the mountains safely, while having fun and enjoying beautiful landscapes ... and at the end of the week to discover that you have acquired a natural affinity with the slopes.  Have fun getting better is what I like to teach!
