Another fantastic lesson from BASS. I was struggling to master something and Becci helped me break it down into bite sized chunks. I came away feeling so positive with goals to focus on - after a couple of days working on the tips she gave me, I already feel more confident. Professional, cheerful and approachable, you can’t go wrong with Becci. I would always use BASS out of preference - they’re a great team, including the office staff. Book ahead ! I was very lucky to get a late availability slot.

I was in a class with two others. I had only been on one ski trip before a long time ago, and was lacking confidence. I improved more than I had hoped by the end of the week. I had a really fun time learning to ski with Tom, who has a great sense of humour and is really supportive. I felt challenged, but never scared. I felt safe and that the lessons were flexible and adaptable for the group, so we got the best out of the sessions possible. The booking system and organisation was also very straightforward with good responses with all forms of communication. I loved my ski trip, can’t wait to come again and will be booking lessons with BASS for myself (and my children) the next time I come. Thank you to all at BASS, especially Tom!!

Thanks for your comments, It's great that you enjoyed your group lessons with Tom. Tom is such wonderful instructor, loved by all and requested time and time and time again . Even though you're learning and progressing all the time, with Tom with you every step of the way, lessons just don't feel like lessons, but a fun time out on the slopes with a friend. We're so pleased that you enjoyed your time in the Alps and we hope to ski with you again soon!

My sister and I had individual lessons, both at quite different skill abilities. Both instructors, Ed and Gordy, were fantastic and made a huge difference to our skiing in a short space of time through clear, simple but incredibly effective instruction. For me personally Ed really honed in on some specific areas of my skiing and gave me ways to address them that so far have really helped - I LOVED my lesson - even the black run! For my sister, her skiing was almost unrecognisable. Highly recommended and will now be my go to ski school anytime I'm in resort. Also thanks to the admin team for a super slick and easy booking process!

Thanks for your comments, It's great to know that your lessons with Ed and Gordy were fantastic and made a huge difference in your skiing. It's also very nice to know that you found our booking process and admin team super slick! We try very hard to make everybody's BASS experience as great as it can possibly can be, from the initial enquiry, to skiing within your lessons and beyond. Thanks again and we hope to ski with you both again another time.

Had amazing service from the very first email sent to this company their admin staff were very efficient, as was my instructor Gordon, who had years of teaching experience under his belt. Really enjoyed my lesson, learnt a lot and couldnt believe how quickly two hours went. Would definitely go straight back to this company next time I need another ski lesson.

We have used BASS (specifically Tom) for instruction and guidance for a number of years as a group of friends. He has always succeeded in making our sessions enjoyable whilst somehow making us much more competent and confident skiers. This year Tom also took private lessons with my daughter (8) and a friends son (10) and their feedback was that he was ‘brilliant, fun and really kind’, I don’t even think they realised they’d been in a lesson! From a parents perspective they also grew in confidence and ability which was a huge positive. I would have no hesitation in recommending BASS to anyone as they have never let us down. Jo in the office is patient and hugely efficient in sorting out all our requirements and BASS are also excellent at recommending other great local businesses and services. Our ski holidays (with friends and family) are enhanced by our continued wonderful interactions with BASS!

Thanks for your comments, We're so pleased to be a part of your family and friend's ski holidays. You've hit the nail on the head with your description of Tom and he is such a valued member of our 'BASS Family'. We try very hard to help client's get the most out of their holiday time, both on and off the slopes, throughout the booking process, to being on the hill and beyond. Thanks again and we look forward to next year!!
