Reviewed By Anna C

First time on a snowboard and I was terrified. Had three 1-2-1 lessons with Rob, who was unbelievably patient and kind. Having had a tough experience in a group lesson, Rob managed to convince me to give boarding another chance! Straightforward booking system with swift response time. Seriously impressed. Would definitely recommend.

Reviewed By Potter E

We have been riding with Simon aka Rebel Alliance now for a good few years! Working on our riding skills from technical on-piste riding, jibbing around in the parks to epic off-piste riding and experiences.
This time was another group off-piste course and after the mammoth amounts of snow that Tignes has had this season, Si delivered yet another off-piste adventure.
One of the things that makes riding with Si so enjoyable is the thought and attention to detail that he provides each member of his group.
For me on this trip, it was all about ensuring I was riding within my fitness capabilities. I broke my ankle a few months before our trip and Simon has been fantastic at assessing the regular updates we have provided him regarding my rehabilitation and fitness progress. Both before and during the trip, Simon has carefully assessed my physical requirements and constantly monitored my capabilities to ensure that I was able to ride safely and enjoyably for the time we spent with him. We discussed potential challenges the day before each ride and together would decide if the proposed riding plan was within my capabilities.
I am thrilled to say that a number of the days we had, I have ridden lines that I didn’t think I was capable of even at 100% fitness, yet alone with a dodgy ankle. A day out in ST Foy which was truly stunning and the rarely ridden & walk out across the bridge at Lac de Chevril are just two of the highlights for me from this week. Challenging and beautiful runs which I was able to complete because of the support that Si gave me.
Simon’s sense of adventure and fabulous sense of humour makes riding with him an unforgettable experience.
We look forward to many more years riding with Rebel Alliance and adding to our already extensive list of memorable adventures with Si.
Thank you Rebel Alliance. :)

Reviewed By TheOriginalVicar - Lichfield, United Kingdom

I'm 48 years old and I've been snowboarding since I was 30, I've had lessons with many different instructors across lots of different resorts across the years but hands down the best is Renelle at Fresh Snowboarding.
Renelle's approach is fresh and comprehensive.
I had 3 x 3 hr lessons with my 15 year son last week, we both had different objectives from the lessons and Renelle was able to meet them all
My only regret was that I had not booked more lessons
Hope to ride with you again

If you have ever covered all of Espace Killy - it is time to give up skiing ;-) A huge area with all levels of ski, beautiful landscapes, excellent modern lifts, a wide choice of good restaurants... and extraordinary options for hors piste.

Tignes Ski Resort

Reviewed By AvinAgg - Hornchurch, United Kingdom


extensive pistes..plenty enough greens, blues and reds for everyone. a super long season given the height of the resort.
had an avalanche on the day we left which was tragic and delayed this review but I guess that's the risk when going off piste.
Will definatley return to Tignes..a fantastic part of the alps..

We booked for one session and ended up adding a second session as Guillaume was so good. We have been skiing for 10 years but made vast progression this week alone following the lessons. Great technical instruction and confidence building.

Le Lagon swimming-pool

Reviewed By LucyAU - Melbourne, Australia

The kids enjoyed this clean and large pool and wellness centre with slides. Good fun for them, and bonus that entry is included in Family ski passes. I was a tad frustrated at the absence of an area to supervise and being told I had to be in bathers to sit by the pool to watch the kids, with no explanation for what appears an odd rule to me. Makes me wonder if I would have been better off dropping them at the pool and leaving the life guards to supervise... which would make me equally uncomfortable. Not all adults want to get in the water. But a great pool space if you do.

Bikepark Tignes

Reviewed By UltraNu3 - Chalfont St Peter, United Kingdom

The FREE ski lifts (4 lifts) allowed 5,000m of descending on our first day ..... but do ensure you ARE already a mountain bikers if you really want to enjoy ... saw lots of bods with broken arms, and I assume they weren't from playing tennis!
Be aware that even the bottom grade runs (Green) do require skill ... it's NOT the same a riding a UK bridleway .... and as for Black ... we survived but we can't say we rode it!
I recommend getting the heaviest and most 'spongey' downhill bike ... we tried two shops and the newer, lighter, harder suspension bikes were harder for us to handle.
