We went skiing in Megeve with our family in February 2017. It was the first time skiing for our 3.5 year old son. Mike was super helpful in arranging the lessons and times for us. Laure was the best instructor that we could have wished for. Our son has a bit of a mind of his own and doesn't always let people tell him what to do. Laure was great with him, very patient but firm when she needed to be (and her English was perfect which made it easier for our son to understand and connect with her). He had the best time ever and by the end of the week he was going up the lifts and skiing down the slopes without our assistance. We definitely recommend Ski Pros Megeve and Laure to anyone visiting the area.

Mike and his team of ski and alpine instructors make it easy and educational in the Megeve/ Mt. Blanc and Chamonix areas.
Excellent instruction and guiding.
Would use this group again..

Everything about this company is 5-star and i would definately recomend them to anyone looking for ski lessons, and ask for Oliver!
We were only in Mègeve for a weekend so could manage a half day's lesson - but our instructor Oliver, was amazing, and had his work cut out with our mixed ability group!
As soon as we met him in Tip Top sports we knew by his lovely smile and warm welcome we were going to be in safe hands.
He was an excellet teacher and did a very good job of teaching a totally mixed ability group and even threw in a few jokes.
He was very very patient, thorough and we think he had eyes in the back of his head because he could see everything.
Couldnt have asked for a better instructor.

We were visiting Megeve for 3 skiing days in which we managed to meet with Mike for 2 half days. Arrangement with Mike were made months ago without any advanced payment from our side. Still, Mike was commited to the lessons and provide us with the most elaborative information that will help us to get to the right decision for us.
Mike has a great spirit - happy to teach, very patient and adapt himself to his student.
He is very commited to the lessons and has a lot of energy to use every minute of the lesson for teaching.
We liked meeting with Mike and improving our ski performance. We'll be happy to use Ski Pros Megeve services again! Thx Mike.

Well, lets start by saying that this review was 7 years ago, but still feel the pain from that experience. It started very amicably with good coms and trust that was built up over the time before we arrived at Megeve. We were staying in Chamonix some 40 minute drive away and consisted of two families of mixed ability, 2 advanced skiers, 1 intermediate and 5 absolute beginners(including a 6 year old.

On the first day of meeting in Megeve we had to meet up with our ski guide/instructor "Kevin" who was Canadian, and had apparently trained the Norwegian skiing team!!!. So lets start with a brief story about Kevin. Kevin had no refinery charisma, or has patience. The first day in Megeve I had to try and find Kevin on the slopes to get our group organised, and with respect to Mike and his instructions, he was where he was supposed to be, but in the melee and confusion of trying to organise 9 other people I was a bit late in meeting up with Kevin in trying to remember where I was meant to find him, but on meeting Kevin his face looked as though he had been head butted by a moose.

I said to Kevin that the remaining members of my party were at the bottom of the slope because they did not know what ski lift pass they required and I asked him if he could come down to advise. Well, the look on his face said it all again! "NO" was his reply and a little hunch of his shoulders came with it.

So after a while of frantic coming and going we had all assembled before our glorious instructor "Kevin" who then briefly advised us of how the week would commence. We told Kevin that he could divide his time between the three different groups, not expecting him to teach all different levels at the same time.

It wasn't long into the instruction that my wife and I had doubts as to how this was going to pan out, it was plainly obvious that the only 3 ring circus that Mike had told me was involving him and Kevin. Our youngest daughter was so traumatised by Kevin that we had to take her away from the slopes and the ski instruction and put her into a local crèche, which didn't work at all.

By the end of day one it became obvious that my wife and i were not going to get any intermediate training.

The week had passed and towards the end we expressed our thoughts and views with Mike, who completely ignored and disregarded any complaint we had.

Our group had put a lot of time and money into this experience of which for some was their first and had left a very bitter taste in the mouth.

If my memory serves me correctly, we had to pay Kevin at the end of the week for our groups tuition, but because we said that we were not paying for our non intermediate training, that we didn't get. Kevin at that point downed tools and skied down the mountain leaving the group in limbo and completely bewildered .

Mike is in this for reasons known to him, they are not for you, he has no regard for your satisfaction or benefit.

As I'm sure you are aware skiing can be very expensive in every form, we have skied for over 30 years and to date this has been the worst experience we have had.

If I can give any advice or tips on tuition its this, do your homework and identify your requirements from a group basis, one instructor can only tutor one ability. Don't get into a circus!!
