James Allen is an independent British instructor with 24 years skiing experience in Val d’Isere offering both group and private lessons, on and off-piste.
He is a fully qualified British ski instructor with BASI Level 4 qualification and full French equivalence who has been based in Val d’Isere since the 1991/2 Olympic season. Having spent 10 years living there full time plus numerous weeks during other seasons, he has a vast knowledge of the ski area and offers quality ski lessons to complete beginners through to advanced skiers alike.
Group lessons are a more cost effective way to learn and also being in a mixed group this can be a fun and sociable way of learning. Again these are available to all levels of skier. Group sizes are limited to a maximum of six people.
Private lessons can be arranged and are tailored to suit your every need and the lesson is fully focused around your goals. These can be taken for all levels of skier from the complete novice who’s about to embark on their first tentative turns or the advanced skier looking to hone their skills and learn to carve the perfect turn. You can also book the private lesson with friends or family to help share the cost.
Off-piste/Back-country ski touring sessions are available to experienced skiers and those who are looking to make their first turns in some deep powder and venture off the beaten track for the first time. If you are a well accomplished off-piste skier and wish to improve, or just have James guide you around the Espace Killy and show you some of the more out the way steep and deep runs, then he can help you.
