The best and coolest instructor, EVER.

Lara's Story

The mountains have never just been a pastime for me, they have always been my passion.
I have taught sailing since the age of 17 and skiing since 18. I feel a real joy and enthusiasm for teaching and spreading the love of the sports.

As a fully qualified Snow Sports Instructor (ISTD), registered with BASI and SIM I have been lucky enough to share my love of the mountains with hundreds of happy clients.

The 3 Valleys

I first skied in Courchevel at the age of 3, and have done every year since! I now live in the Meribel valley, which is where I call home, and have been teaching here for nine seasons now.

The 3 Valleys is an incredible resort, with so much diversity to offer, you have no excuse for getting bored. You can make your skiing holiday what you want, whether it's an off-piste adrenaline fuelled adventure, or a leisurely gastronomic tour of the slopes...



Skiing with Lara

There is nothing more satisfying than turning a nervous skier who doesn't enjoy their time on the mountain, confined to a corner of one nursery slope, to a red run addict with a beaming smile! 

I ski with and teach all abilities from complete first timers all the way up to race training and coaching. All of my lessons are relaxed, with a fun atmosphere, no need to worry about a thing.
