Alex is a true mountain boy! He grew up skiing on these very mountains strapping on his first pair of skis at the tender age of 3yrs and racing at 7yrs. Alpine skiing, ski touring and snowboarding became a part of daily winter life and after earning his degree in Engineering to get a “proper” job, it felt only natural to stay on the skis where his passion truly lay and to pursue a career on the snow instead!
Alex has been teaching in Morzine since 2000 but he also spent a season in New Zealand for a change of scenery. During the summer Alex is glued to his bike, busy running his road cycling business Yellovelo.

FUN, SUPPORT and GUIDANCE

“Alex was a great instructor and tailored his advice to the experience of each of the group. He was patient with those who were more anxious and very friendly.”

“We can’t recommend Alex highly enough. He really got the best out of our two kids and they thought he was brilliant. Thanks to Alex’s encouragement and patience, our just-four-year-old was skiing completely unaided after four lessons and our six-year-old’s skiing improved significantly. Alex is a very considerate instructor, sensitive to any concerns we may have had as parents of little ones. Smiles all around. Thank you and see you again.”

“Alex was an awesome instructor, packing a huge amount into a 3 hour private lesson for a pair of us, and adding insights to help improve our respective styles. He also did it all in a fun and amusing manner. Highly recommend.”

“Our son Charlie loved his lessons with Alex. His skiing and confidence came on just in three mornings. I would recommend Alex and we hope to see him again next time.”
