8 year old son had 3 x 2hr lessons with Michael. He thoroughly enjoyed them and really improved. He is now confident with carving and showing his other 'tricks'. He boards regularly and Michael has pushed him onto next level. Thank you very much

Bright blue skies, full sun and snowboard lessons on par with the weather made for a perfect weekend!
Alexander from Eskimos was an excellent teacher!
As an adult beginner (4th time on the board) Alexander gave great tips for balance, control and making turns.
My improvement after only 1hour was significant. The foot/ancle techniques drastically changed how I control the board.
He also gave very simple and easy-to-follow instructions on how the coordiantion of head, arms and which foot/feet should carry my weight when making turns.
My lesson on the following day was quite different from the first lesson which made the learning experience very interesting.
Positive attitude, patient and a knowledgeable teacher - I can highly recommend Alexander to anyone!
The office team (Nicole) had my reservation ready as I had called the day before.
They also had my booking ready for the next day even though I had only casually mentioned it to Alex at the end of my lesson that I wished to book a session for the following day.
Super team!
Will definately book again next time in Saas-Fee! :)
