Icy in the morning soft later. My son was not as good as he thinks he is but maybe now he is. Private 1 on 1 lessons was the way to go!

Really attentive teacher Caterina helped my 13 year old improve.

I booked private lessons for both my wife and son while in Sauze. My son had never skied before and so was very frightened. The team at Snowmaxx were very friendly and warming to both my son and wife. They were at the top waiting for them which was very clearly marked and made themselves well know so easy to find.
My son was very nervous to start with and the team took great care of him and once I had left the team took great care to ensure he was comfortable and happy.
My wife had tried skiing a few timings but these private lessons were to boost her confidence and ability. When I can back to collect my son and my wife the there both smiling, happy and looking forward to the lessons for the week.
They both achieved so much within the week of lessons and my son even managed to come down the red route without any issues.
Well done the team Snowmaxx for the lesson and we will be back.

We used snowmaxx for my 4 year old little
Boy, who was very nervous and honestly so was I. As soon as I picked him up after lesson one, he asked when he was going back, he had the best time, by day 3-4 he was confidently coming down hard blue/red runs and on day 5 skied past me 🤦‍♀️ And waves as he went down.

We will use them again for my little girl, as soon, as she is older enough

I also used them myself to help with my confidence and I can say they did that, I’m a nervous skier and they help me and guided me, thank you Snowmaxx

Hopefully see you December 2021

Booked three mornings of private lessons for my wife with Iole from Snowmaxx as a last attempt to try and enable her to enjoy a ski holiday - having opted out of the last two seasons this was genuinely do or die for skiing. Despite decent technique and capability previous ski trips have been spoiled for her (and me when we couldn’t ski together) by extreme nerves and lack of confidence. Can't explain how she did it but within the first morning my wife was skiing with Iole down black runs - with confidence! Iole just seemed to know what was required to boost and instil confidence offering tips and advice based on what she saw, taking the lead and providing great lines to follow down a wide range of slopes. Days 2 and 3 I joined them and we covered a wide range of slopes across the resort meaning when my wife and I skied together without Iole it was as if we’d already skied so many slopes we may have done the one we were on (it wasn’t always the case but my wife’s uncertainty as to whether she’d done it before seemed to lend her belief in being able to ski all slopes - even blacks she’d never have even stood at the top of on other holidays). I can honestly say this is the best skiing trip I've ever been on. There were still times when my wife’s nerve wobbled but by keeping Iole's tips and directions in mind she kept her nerve which meant all 6 full days of skiing were a great success. A first! I'd definitely recommend Snowmaxx and Iole to other skiers.

Abbiamo cercato di prenotare lezioni di sci, servizio pessimo sembra che ti facciano un favore, neanche la cortesia di una telefonata, signorina sgarbata e disinteressata senza nessuna capacità commerciale e di interazione con il cliente.
Poi ci si chiede come mai i turisti preferiscano il Trentino... per l’educazione e la cortesia!!!

This is our 4th ski holiday. My son and husband booked a 2hr lesson with Carlo and really learnt a lot from him and felt they had the best weeks skiing after his lesson.
My 9 yr old daughter was in ski school and took a tumble on a black run and this really knocked her confidence so We booked her in for a private lesson with Carlo too . This was great as she got her confidence back was was happy to tackle some of the more challenging runs.

We enrolled our kids at the Snowmaxx school for 2 hours on our first day of our snow trip. An instructor named Carlo took them for the 2 hours. The kids loved every minute of it. Carlo was easy going with kids, they always listened to him, and after 2 hours our kids were safely skiing down the training slope. Our kids wanted Carlo to take them for 2 hours each day we were at the snow. He had them on the main ski slopes by the end of the short holiday skiing with confidence. He had built a small bond with our kids and im sure they will never forget their lessons with Carlo. Highly recomend snowmaxx to anyone, and if you can get Carlo teaching you no doubt you will come away with some good skiing skills.

One of our party booked a private lesson day one morning.
He was not advised of EXACT PLACE to meets so was actually about 15 mts from where the instructor said he was waiting. The instructor had his phone number but did not call and forty five minutes late we found him, to late for a lesson.
It was rebooked for the following day but the instructor was so disinterested “ just follow me” it was a waste of time with nothing learned.
I would not recommend this ski school

Booked Snowmaxx for private lesson for one of our party who had skied four weeks and wanted a bit of technique tweeking. Given wrong meeting place at Clotes so missed the instructor, who had phone number but did not contact. Following day replacement instructor was inept and spent the hour totally disinterested in teaching “ just follow me”.
This is a very lack lustre outfit do not use if you want to improve and are paying for the experience

I arrived to Sauze on Sunday 29th Jan 17 as a complete beginner with no ski lessons booked in advance. I hired beginner skis and boots from Maison Clataud in the centre of town and then discovered this ski/snowboard school Snowmaxx next to Carrafour. I didn’t have expectations for what I would be able to achieve with a week of lessons, but I had a vague target that I would like to be able to do Blue 13 by the end of the week. At this point I would have been pretty happy just to be able to stay upright on the skis!

We went into ask about lessons for me (I was holidaying with my boyfriend who snowboards well). The people in the show were friendly and spoke excellent English. I was offered a lesson the following morning (the Monday). The instructor that I would have was sitting there, Carlo, and he asked a couple of questions about my general fitness and ski level. I am 34 and in average/good shape, but had never ever skied before or done anything like it. He wasn’t put off at all by me being a complete beginner. I opted for private tuition – 2 hours @ €40 per hour on the Monday.

After Monday’s lesson, he’d inspired so much confidence in me that I ended up booking Carlo for two hours each morning from 10am – 12noon and by Friday, I could ski with my snowboarding boyfriend down Reds comfortably!

So a few reasons why Carlo is excellent:

He inspires complete confidence – e.g. whilst you’re learning the snow plough, he skis directly in front of you backwards, so there’s no fear of losing control.

He teaches you things that you can remember – simple instructions like “push with your big toe to turn the skis”, he lets you know exactly where your body position should be e.g. teaches you to point your finger where you’re turning (as it moves your body naturally into the perfect position to stay upright and balanced). If you can’t get your head around one method, he’ll teach you a different way of remembering it. He teaches you simple ways to maintain your posture and balance – which leave you feeling IN CONTROL AND SAFE. This was the major factor in my growing confidence. I knew how to stay in control

He teaches you the stuff you really need to know to feel safe – how to fall, loads of different ways to learn how to get up, what you need to practice to stay balanced. When you fall, he’ll explain to you exactly what happened, and how to avoid again. He teaches you how to lose altitude safely if you’re on a part of the slope that feels a bit steep to you. He’ll share as much knowledge as you can take on board. He’s totally focussed on you. He doesn’t seem like he’s bored at all by teaching you the basics. He’s so focussed on moving you forward and putting you in control of your skis and situation.

He encourages you to achieve more – after 1 day on the nursery slopes, I was up on Blue 13 by the second day. Honestly the nursery slope felt so steep to start off with, but very quickly as my knowledge grew, the nursery slope felt nearly flat! He’ll open your mind to pushing yourself if you want to – but only if you’re comfortably.

Here's how we progressed through each day -

Day 1 – we completed basics like snow plough, snow plough turns, stopping, and how to get up if you fall over. He even taught me how to use the ski lift safely. He teaches you EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW. He doesn’t take anything for granted. He’ll start from scratch.

Day 2 – we did a bit of work on the nursery slope and then headed up the mountain to Blue 13 and practiced my new moves with Carlo safely in front of me – came down the mountain absolutely buzzing.

Day 3 – as above – kept practicing my moves and trying to speed up my manoeuvres (I’m quite risk averse and was nearly going backwards I was going so slowly so he helped me speed up a bit with confidence!). Was back on Blue 13 this day

Day 4 – No nursery slope and tackled a red! This blew my mind, but was a mental hurdle I needed to get over. I was completely safe, we went slowly, he coached me patiently all the way down.

Day 5 – I was going down even the most difficult reds. The only thing that held me back was needing to occasionally stop to catch my breath as I was so excited. He’d blown my mind with what I’d achieved on Day 4 and it really spurred me on to achieve what I did by Day 5.

Carlo is Italian, but can speak English perfectly and I also heard him speaking in French. Wherever we went on the mountain, Carlo seemed well known and well liked and I can completely understand why. He helped me push my boundaries safely. I can’t think of another time in my life where I’ve achieved so much physically and mentally in 5 days. I literally went from not being able to stand on my skis, to loving every second of flying down a mountain on a red feeling completely safe and knowing well what I needed to do. If you want to learn to ski, definitely go with Carlo. But know that by the end of the week, you’ll have achieved far more than just a physical skill. My mind was in a different place as to what I can achieve and what I’m capable of. We are booking this weekend to return to Sauze, I am hooked. And I shall definitely be tracking down Carlo again.
