Excellent tuition, As always.

This is the third time I've have received ski tuition from Rod. This time being in Braehead, Glasgow. Once again i traveled a long way especially to see Rod and once again it was more than worth the effort. Rod has an uncanny ability to teach you and relax you at the same time so that your skiing vastly improves and you learn a huge amount whilst enjoying yourself at the same time! I couldn't recommend him more highly and i will be returning next year.

Nervous 50 something
Apr 2018 • Family
Had 2 hour private lesson with Rod today. Very helpful indeed. Rod is very personable and builds your confidence without mollycoddling. I came off the slopes a much happier and more capable bunny than I went on. Thank you Rod and Dianne for the whole thing. Highly recommended.

Rod's lessons were great - he's really friendly and immediately identifies what you need to do to improve your technique. You'll come on leaps and bounds.

Lessons with Rod
Mar 2018 • Family
I had private lessons with Rod last week as a very novice skier and he really helped make my holiday. Rod is very patient, incredibly knowledgeable and able to explain the same thing a million different ways until he found the one that clicked with me! He built my confidence and made me able to ski with my children, amazing! Thank you Rod!

An old dog learns new tricks
Mar 2018 • Couples
Booked the lessons and then wondered if I needed them. Still wasn't sure at the end of the two days but then found myself trying new stuff, repeating Rod's catchphrases and my skiing improving. Turns out an old dog can learn new tricks! Having a native English speaker is a real plus, there are subtleties in how a concept is put over and this was an advantage over other instructors.

Simply great instruction
Mar 2018 • Solo
Great straight forward instruction, easy to understand and learnt some good subtle techniques as well as realising I wasn’t doing it quite right before!

Learnt more in 2 hours than have in a week of lessons
Mar 2018 • Friends
We really enjoyed our lesson despite having most of it in a white out. Our instructor adapted his lesson to the conditions and taught us more in 2-hours than we have previously learned in a whole week of lessons.

Ski Lessons, and Communication
Mar 2018 • Family
Right from the start, communication with Dianne, was fantastic. As beginners, (1 x adult and two children aged 10 and 14), the whole getting started thing can be daunting, but Dianne was full of tips and helpful suggestions to help us plan our week. Unfortunately we were delayed due to UK weather for 24 Hrs and therefore missed the first days lessons. Again, Dianne was fantastic. Ridiculously fast in replying and we re planned the schedule , trying her best to ensure we made up for missed lessons. Upon arrival, Rod was great, taking the children from never having put on boots to confidently enjoying greens and the odd blue run in only 4 x one hour lessons. Cannot recommend BASS highly enough. Thank You

Fabulous trip
Jan 2018 • Solo
Fabulous lessons with Rod for my week at Les Deux Alpes. Taken on a great variety of runs and mixed it up each class, with different skills worked on each day. Had such a fun time and improved greatly. Can't recommend more to anyone looking for lessons while skiing at Les Deux Alpes!

Les Deux Alpes ski lessons with Rod from BASS - Feb 2018
Feb 2018 • Family
This was our first trip to Les Deux Alpes having skied in Meribel and St Anton in previous years. As a party of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids aged 12-15 of mixed abilities) we were keen to organise private lessons as a group. I did some extensive research and drew up a short list. Rod from BASS was a clear winner based on customer service, but even so on day 1 I was feeling the pressure and responsibility for our group. I needn't have worried as Rod was by far the best ski instructor I've come across - period. For me, Rod made a good week of skiing great. Whether skiing with just the kids, the ladies or the entire group everyone learnt new techniques and progressed. I cannot praise Rod enough and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly and knowledgeable ski instructor.
