Emailed to ask if they had any availability of lessons. Instead of just an apology and a no, we got the response: "Try to get in touch a bit earlier next time"! Brilliant. Won't be using these guys EVER!

There is a real prospect that I have had more snowboarding lessons than anyone else alive. On and off over 20 years I have made what might be described as "gentle" progress. 5 days with Simon took me from wobbling off a chairlift to turning on a black slope and getting about as much air as a podgy 47 year...

Hands on advice from someone who can shred! Great team and great to be taught by passionate people! Looked at bad habits and how to push forward as a rider at my own pace.

Renelle was a fantastic instructor - she catered to the individual needs of the group and really helped me to improve my technique. She also made sessions fun by mixing it up and teaching us lots of tricks - I had a great time!

I attended group level 2l lessons and was scared of everything and Renelle was great, kept encouraging me and kept me calm when I was starting to freak out. I got so frustrated at not being able to grasp it as quick as I had wanted to and was ready to quit, Renelle said `we don't quit`we`re a team` I... More

Excellent tuition! My boyfriend and I have just got back from a week in Tignes & choose Alliance Snowboard School for our lessons. Both of us were complete beginners, but with some excellent coaching we managed a couple of blue runs by the end of the week. Big thanks to Simon, who is brilliant and made the lessons really fun...

If you want to improve your snowboarding or just ride with a good crew then it doesn't get better than Alliance. I did my Level 4 with Simon last year and my girlfriend Kate did her Level 3 and 4 with Renelle and Simon this year, while I did some freestyle and free-ride sessions. The instructors keep it fun even... More

I spent a week in a beginner class with Rory, and it was tip top. I learned loads of stuff (mostly, but not all, snowboarding related!), gained in confidence throughout the week, and felt in exceedingly good teaching and encouraging company. Plus, Marie Claire was extremely helpful in sorting out my lessons, and also arranging a private lesson for a... More

Did a week of "pimp my ride" with Rory, what a legend! all instructors are English so nothing is lost in translation. I can't rate this school high enough. The teaching is superb and is pitched to all levels in the class. Nothing to fault whatsoever ever. Whatever you are looking for Alliance is the school to provide it.

I have been snow boarding a few times but wasn't improving. I booked a weeks level 2 lessons which were taken by Simon. Before Simon took us for a run he examined our boards and made a few alterations which made an immediate difference. Simon clearly explained techniques and was very patient when I was a little slow in consistently... More
