We booked Lynn for 3 hours every morning for our group of mixed ability children ages 5-6-7 and 9. The youngest had only had a few hours on a dry slope and the older ones had a weeks previous experience. After a few days of one to one hour sessions with our youngest she soon had them skiing together and left a big impression on them all. Lynn can translate her vast technical knowledge into a way the kids really understood. Will be booking again for our next trip without a doubt! Thank you Lynn x

My wife and I had two fantastic mornings with Lynn! While we’re both advanced skiers on-piste, we’ve only done a couple of days off-piste. Lynn dramatically helped us improve our form on both. She constantly gave great feedback and encouragement while helping us explore the resort. I honestly think our skiing improved more in those two sessions than in the past 10 years. She also spent extra time explaining avalanche safety, something that’s definitely kept us from venturing too far off normal pistes. I highly recommend Lynn for anyone looking for a fun day on the slopes and to improve their skiing at any level! She’s a genuinely nice person who's fun to be around as well as an expert in her field.

Lynn was just the perfect blend of encouragement and technical advice on my first foray into the world of ski touring. The first half day was spent largely on piste working on technique before we then had a truly memorable two days off piste exploring some of the huge back country area that Val d'sere has to offer. I felt challenged but never over-faced.... exhilarated but never terrified! Her mountain knowledge is exceptional and I learnt a huge amount about the environment we were in. Great company throughout, she is also a demon wildlife spotter! All in all, a truly memorable experience and one which I would highly recommend to anyone. I am already planning next year's trip.... and the year after.... and the year after that!!

We were four rusty intermediate skiers skiing together for the first time and new to Val d'Isere. Lynn was completely brilliant - assessing our abilities and reminding us of the basics - building our confidence and gradually challenging us over the course of several lessons. I recommend her without hesitation! She is great company and our sessions were exactly the right mix of supportive, challenging, fun!

Thanks for your feedback Fiona, you all did so well over the course of our 4 days! From walking up on the nursery slope to hitting the reds - testament to your hard work and determination. Well done! So pleased you had a great time and hope to ski with you again sometime!

Everyone deserves Lynn as their instructor..!
We were a group of 4 adults who had not skied for between 5 and 20 years and we couldn't have chosen a better teacher. Lynn adjusted her instruction to each of us, giving us important generic information and very personal teaching points.
I felt completely confident in her hands. It felt like I was getting a 1-2-1 lesson although I was in a group. Alongside the excellent instruction, Lynn took us to an amazing array of runs, giving us lots of options to practice in between lessons.
Having not been on skis for over 20 years and sooooo nervous, I felt completely safe with Lynn; she has a warm and friendly approach and her technical advice and support was fantastic.
Lynn reignited my love for this amazing activity - I will be back on skis again next year!

We had the best time with Lynn and I was so impressed with how she dealt with four of us, all with very different skills and needs, at the same time. As a timid skier I had complete trust and confidence in her to keep me safe and help me advance. At the other end of the scale she took my husband and friends off piste and taught them how to be safe and use all the equipment in case of an emergency as well as having lots of fun. I particularly enjoyed the short video clips she sent us all to show how we had improved. We can’t wait until next year!

Lynn is a friendly professional ski instructor. Both of my girls , aged 3 & 8, lives having their lessons with Lynn. She made it fun and enjoyable. I saw massive improvements in their confidence and capability. I would highly recommend Lynn to anyone.

I found Lynn through Trip Advisor reviews and can only reiterate her 5 star ratings. She taught my 6 year olds on their first week of skiing and was everything we could hope for in a ski instructor. My children adored her from the start and she was genuine, kind, patient, friendly, easy going and overall brilliant. If we go to Val D'Isere again, I would without any hesitation hope to book her again. She had my kids feeling confident about their skiing and enjoying it. I put this all down to her and her wonderful manner with the kids and with us. I knew they were in good hands which meant we could relax too.

Thank you Lynn!!

Thanks very much for your feedback. Really great to hear that the kids had a brilliant time skiing, as I had a great time teaching them. Hopefully we can ski together again sometime - now that they've got the 'bug'. Best Wishes, Lynn

Lynn assessed my skiing technique over the course of 3 hours with the aim of discovering whether or not I was up to the standard needed to take a BASI lvl 2 course. Was very helpful and not only did I find out what I needed to do to improve for the course but I also learnt and improved a lot over the short 3 hour lesson. It was not overly formal either and, due to this, I enjoyed the lesson as much as I learnt from it. Would definitely recommend Lynn as a ski instructor!

Lynn Sharp Mill is an elite ski racer who has come down from the clouds to teach mere mortals like us. She has a secret weapon in husband Dougie Mill who is the guy you'd want to be marooned with in any emergency situation - he'd stand on the tips of his skis and make you laugh (yes, he can really do that) while explaining the finer points of rotational separation and getting you down the slopes in style.

Seriously great fun teaching - but technically sound, strategically savvy and always positive and patient. Whether you're skiing double blacks already and need really high end coaching or, like me, scared of heights and keen to ski greens and easy blues in a chilled fashion, the Mills are unbeatable. Just don't book them up so heavily I can't get my next instalment.
