New snow today added a buzz to everybody's skiing. with a lot more on the way with continuing very cold temperatures, the next few weeks should see some great skiing here in Chatel.
Our clients say...
Just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how pleased we were with the ski lessons. Please pass on our thanks to Matt - the kids really enjoyed their time with him and their skiing has developed enormously in just three days.
Dear Peter, Just to say that our instructor, Matt, was absolutely brilliant. He was very professional and friendly, challenged us exactly the right amount and was an excellent guide of the mountains. It was definitely the best decision we made on our holiday to book lessons. We all progressed a huge amount without losing our confidence. The recommendation of which ski hire shop to use was also great, making picking up our skis in the morning really easy. Please thank Matt for a job really well done. Hopefully we will be back next year! Also just I say Matt Kerswell who added an extra lesson will pay online soon. Cheers, Tessa
I just wanted to express a massive thank you to Bob for last week, I was on the intermediate course which ended up being himself, me and my dad (Graham).
I had such a fantastic week and it really was all thanks to him, my skiing has come on so much and everyone I was with on the trip was so pleased for me to have had great instruction and help in both skill and confidence to my skiing.
The week was a bit hit and miss with weather which luckily allowed us to experience all types of snow conditions, I learnt technique as well as being able to just enjoy the surroundings, ending with a very enjoyable last lesson exploring out into Linderes and Avoriaz.
One thing I took from him was something I won’t ever forget, “you can learn as much as you like but 90% of skiing is enjoying yourself”.
Please pass on this message, Thanks Bob- I really do hope to ski with you again one day!
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you, Sue and your team very much for helping us make last week’s holiday one of our best ever! Carla and Pippa are both becoming great skiers and I don’t have to worry (quite so much) about Pip’s tendency to point down.
Please do pass on our special thanks to Willie and Matt, who the girls are very fond of.
Looking forward to seeing you all next year.
We have just returned from our first family ski holiday.
Your instructors were great. special thanks to Bob for taking the more tricky adults. He was brilliant!
Thank you so much for helping us have such a great week
Hope to be back next year!
Very many thanks and best wishes
I just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with Matt and what a credit he is to your organisation. He was an excellent instructor, patient, punctual, courteous and thoughtful. He had a great way with our children who thought he was brilliant. We'd definitely recommend him and your organisation to others. Thank you
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you so much for the lessons. You were fabulous. The transformation for Niamh was incredible as it was for both Hannah and me. Equally Harrison genuinely believes he is now a world class snowboarder which is impressive given that he only had 5 lessons with Matt.
We have recommended you highly to our chums and very much look forward to more lessons at another time!
Sylvie, who took the lessons you arranged over New Year, had a great time and very much enjoyed her beginners' lessons, thanks very much for providing them.
Just wanted to say big thanks for terrific lesson yesterday morning- jo and I learnt a lot in short time and have been practicing today. I am sure it will change our ski technique forever!
Hope the stag party lesson went well!
Thanks so much for the fantastic lessons for mattie and martha this week. Both really enjoyed it and improved!
They have both said how much they enjoyed them and wished they'd had you before (instead of esf!!- large group and teacher they didn't understand)
Hope you have a good season and if we're lucky enough to be invited again to Chatel we shall be in touch.
Can you thank Matt on behalf of Myself and Emily for the patience and understanding that he showed with our 8 year old daughter Poppy, during our half term visit. Poppy you may recall had suffered a broken leg the year before. Whilst Poppy was very nervous, she still manage to regain some of her confidence that had been lost.
Thanks Peter. Just got these photos now we're back in Australia. They are awesome.
The boys really loved their lessons and the improvement in their skiing was amazing. Thanks so much for your patience and skill in teaching them! Paul also clicked in his skiing thanks to his lesson with Matt.
We hope to see you again and enjoy the rest of the season.
"Just want to say a massive thanks to you guys for sorting me out with lessons this past week, you made my holiday. In particular, Matt and Ollie for their perseverance with me in Chatel. You guys are fantastic. Also, Peter, for putting up with me ringing last minute for a booking. I can't recommend you guys highly enough!! Tim."
Hi Peter,Thanks for such a good lesson today, we really enjoyed it! We hit the bumps again this afternoon and loved it, so different to the ones we tried before the lesson!Thanks again,
Thanks to Matt for a great week. The boys were sad to see you go.
Hi Peter,i just wanted to email again to express my sincere thanks for all you did for me last week. when i arrived for my first lesson i couldn't understand why anyone would want to Ski but by the end of the five lessons i understood exactly what everyone was raving about, i loved it and because of you i was able to ski for the whole day with my other half and his kids on the friday of last week without looking like a complete fool and i got down slopes that at the beginning of the week would have made me crumble in fear.
Another great week of instruction from Matt & Janet with the penguin group! Isla has progressed beyond my expectations and appears to have talked everyone's ears off in the process. 3yrs old and loving skiing - thank you so much!
Thanks Peter for my lesson and putting up with me insisting I can't do it. Anyone looking for lessons in Chatel, you really can't go wrong with these guys.
Thanks Peter. I think we'd go ahead if you were able to teach us to
get the continuity. Otherwise we'll skip it this time but will
certainly book with BASS again. Really impressed.
Just a quick note to thank you and the team for the excellent arrangements in Chatel last week. Kids won’t stop talking about it and I think are hooked. A picture is attached. Please extend our best wishes to Janet, William and Willie and hope to see you again next year.
Minal and I would like to highlight and thank Peter for his amazing teaching across only a few lessons which moved us both from beginners to being confident on red slopes, his guidance and confidence enabled us to finally ski with our children, a target which we thought was many years away due to the awful teachings of a french ski school! We will surely be booking more lessons on our next trip to Chatel and singing your well deserved praises to all our friends and family.
It was a real pleasure and yet again we thank you very much.
Dips and Min
I would like to thank you for arranging ski lessons over half term my for my children Annabel and Jamie and also the Lakin family. The kids loved the lessons so please pass on a very big thank you to Will.
