- “Me and two friends used Lynn as a guide in early February 2016. What an amazing 2 days, genuinely the best days of skiing in my life! Lynn on the first day took us to areas in Val d'Isere that we would not even have considered skiing before (Tour de Charvet and Danaides) with the most incredible powder. On the second day we skied in Tignes and Lynn showed us some amazing tree routes and taught us how to ski 'pillows'. On both days Lynn talked us through the importance of decision making when skiing off piste and the factors that you should take into account to determine the risk of avalanche. We also somehow managed to slip in an hour of transceiver training which was invaluable. All in all Lynn gave us a fantastic introduction to backcountry skiing and the safety elements behind it - highly recommended!.” - Trip Advisor
- "Lynn has been teaching our family on our twice a season trips to Val D'Isere for 3 years now and we can honestly say that she is the best ski instructor we have ever had. She has taught all 3 of our children to ski with great confidence and skill and so we book her up as early as we can! Both my husband and I have hugely benefited from more advanced lessons with her both off and on piste. Her expertise, knowledge, technique and overall passion for the mountains is unsurpassable and we all love skiing with her! " - Trip Advisor
- “I had Lynn in Val d'Isere for a morning. Despite low visibility and much of the mountain closed, we had a productive time working on my technique. Very knowledgable, friendly and engaging. Easy to follow, constructive criticism, really enjoyed our time together.” - Customer Feedback
- "Last night Lynn, one of the trainers was running a video session where about 50 of us were in the bar watching what she filmed earlier that day. For over half the people they’d never seen themselves skiing on film before let alone skiing around giant slalom gates before. It was a situation that could have been really uncomfortable and nerve racking but it wasn’t. Lynn’s approach was really simple, as someone appeared on the screen she paused the footage and asked what they’d been working on through the day, she then ran through the footage pointing out where they’d done it well and in some cases showing them how they could do it better whilst in other cases encouraging them to keep doing it. When my turn came along, she asked what I was working on we watched the film and she picked out 3 turns where I’d got it spot on and she made sure that I knew why those turns had worked. She didn’t beat me up for the 17 turns I didn’t get right and all the other errors I was making. I left feeling good about my skiing and wanting to get more turns right the next day." - Ben Hunt-Davis - Skiing & Successful Coaching - 2012
