I've been snowboarding for 15 years but it's only in the last 2 years that my skills have dramatically improved thanks to the lessons I've had with Simon and Renelle. I was staring to think maybe it was time to hang up my board until I did 4 half days with them and improved so much my passion for the... More

I first met Simon in the bar of my hotel after an awful day for me on the slopes , I'd asked hotel staff for a recommendation for an instructor and they produced Simon he asked me about my problems on the slopes and then told me to get my board: after he'd looked at it he recommended some set...

Lucky enough to spend 4 days on a pre season-performance course with Si back in November 2013. We had our challenges with high winds on the Tignes glacier but Si did everything he could to maximise our enjoyment and learning over the 4 days. Si is one of Europe's elite snowboard Instructors/coach/trainer's and it show's. He's since set up Rebel... More

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...
