Whether you are an experienced rider or a total beginner I will guarantee you an unforgettable experience on the snow!
Since when I was 3 years old, skiing has always been my greatest passion. I grew up skiing in the Cervinia-Zermatt resort, specializing in freestyle skiing and achieving high results in this discipline. In 2015 I moved to Zermatt in order to follow my dream of working as a snowsports instructor and, since then, I've always given my best to convey my immense passion for the snow to my guests. I love teaching people of all levels: see the first timers falling in love with the sport, help the advanced riders to improve their carving turns or their off-piste technique, take young people to the snowpark to learn or improve their freestyle skills in complete safety etc.
Riding for more than 20 years in the Zermatt-Cervinia ski resort allowed me to develop a perfect knowledge of the area: I will be happy to guide you through the 360 km of slopes that we can offer, showing you the best areas for skiing, the astonishing view points and advising you the best restaurants; also, do not hesitate to contact me if you are looking for an experienced and knowledgeable off piste guide to live an extraordinary experience away from the groomed slopes.
Exceptional technical knowledge of the sport, fun and entertaining lessons, extensive knowledge of the area, both on and off piste!
I had several hours worth of lessons with Davide and he was an absolutely incredible teacher and such a nice and friendly guy as well. He was very encouraging and his feedback and teaching was so clear and helpful. My skiing and confidence improved a lot in the time spent with him. Given the chance I would definitely book lessons with him again. Davide was a pleasure to ski with and learn from, I cannot recommend him highly enough!
Davide is a really friendly and enthusiastic instructor. He was particularly good for my adventurous sons!
Davide is a great instructor. I learned so much everyday. I could barely do turns on snowboard on the first day, and after a few hours, I was already doing some tricks. He’s also super friendly, always smiling! He gave all kinds of advice, from where was the best place to rent the equipment, to the best slopes for my level. I had a lovely time! Thanks, Davide!
Davide was awesome, we skied for 2 days, I learned a lot and progressed from the basics to some tricky slopes. Davide is friendly, positive and very encouraging, great teacher.
Before booking a class I asked several questions to him, and he kindly answered everything. We noticed that he has a lot of experience, and he did his best to teach us. We met with him since the Sunnega station and he explained everything we need about the ski pass, slopes, resorte, etc. I fully recommended him. We wanted to schedule another class but he was full, then he helped us to get another teacher. We really appreciate that
Davide was fantastic - he met us at our hotel and picked great terrain to match the conditions each day. I snowboard and he had lots of tech tips for me as well as great coaching for the kids who are intermediate skiers.
Davide is a great instructor!
My two daughters (a young adult and 14-year old girl) had a full-day lesson with Davide this Sunday. Both of them are very pleased with Davide who is patient, passionate, and caring. Their snowboarding skills are nicely improved after learning from Davide. Davide also gave me useful local information prior to my arrival in Zermatt. He is helpful and professional. Highly recommended!
Davide helped teach my friend who was new to skiing and then took me and him all around the resort and was a great guide! He is a guide for all types of skiers.
Davide took us to a nice touring half day despite the lack of snow :) Davide nous a apporté faire une belle rando alpine malgré le manque de neige :) He was very nice and friendly! Thanks!!
Friendly, excellent tips and guidance
Davide is a great guy, we loved the lessons
Davide is very patient and knows how to handle kids very well. He provided good feedback to me and also offered fun way for my daughter to learn.
Davide was brilliant! I would definately recommend anyone to book with him. We were a group of 4 beginners and Davide gave us all so much confidence and by the end of our 2 half day lessons he had us all on the blue slopes. We cannot reccomed Davide enough. He is fantastic
My 13 year old daughter loved skiing with Davide this week. He made her experience so much fun, challenging and wonderful. He is simply the best ski instructor in every way. So relaxed and in tune. We are so grateful to have had him with us this season.
Davide is an amazing instructor, he took care of my friend (first time skiing) and after just few hours of lesson, my friend and I had the chance to enjoy some slopes toghther as free riders. Highly recommended!
As beginners, Davide was a great instructor. He was patient, knowledgeable and made the lessons very enjoyable. He also made sure that we challenged ourselves so that we were able to make significant progress each lesson. For anyone wanting to learn or improve their skiing technique we would highly recommend Davide.
I've always wanted to try snowboarding in the Swiss mountains, but I was too nervous to switch over from skiing to snowboarding. However, Alpine Ski School & Dido made me super comfortable & genuinely excited to learn to snowboard 🙂 Dido had a super friendly personality and a great ability to teach & give advice in a clear and enjoyable way. Dido was also super flexible with timings and responded fast. If you were to decide whether or not to book a lesson - I can confidently tell you to do it with no hesitation! 10/10!
Davide was a great instructor and helped to focus on the critical elements to help improve the ski
I had a great experience with Davide! My skiing improved a lot and I came away with very helpful drills to practice further on my own. He was also very flexible and took notice of my progress and adapted the lessons accordingly so I got the most of out of them. I cannot recommend him strongly enough!
Davide is incredible. His technical feedback is beyond the standard and as a result, my skiing improved instantly. He continued with tips I have never been given and is hands down the best instructor I've had. Don't hesitate to book him!
Davide was an amazing instructor. He has exceptional teaching skills and was able to provide valuable instructions and feedbacks that were easy to understand and allowed us to improve quickly. Despite the differences in levels in our group, Davide was able to manage his time properly and teach all of us accordingly. Highly recommend to anyone that wants a cheerful and great teacher to have lessons with Davide.
I was looking for a lesson hoping for a full day of off piste techniques. Unfortunately, the conditions did not lend themselves to off piste skiing and I could only grab a morning lesson. Fortunately, Davide was increibly helpful in his instruction and the three hours were enough to cover what I needed to improve. We started with a quick run to assess what needed working on and from there we did some drills to improve technique. His communication was great and the pace of the lesson was perfect, enabling me to bring all elements of the drills together by the end. I would recommend him for any level of skier!
We are a family of four decent skiers that was looking for a guide during our five day trip to Zermatt. Dido made our trip very memorable. His knowledge of the entire mountain, restaurants, awareness of where we are and where we need to be was spotless. I would encourage anyone looking for an energetic, uplifting and fun guide to choose Dido.
Davide is a great instructor! He took the time to teach us the basics, before going to a blue slop. We had lot of fun together! Super recommended :)
Bienveillant et très à l’écoute. Super prof !
Davide is an exceptional and passionate teacher. I took 6 hours of lesson with him (and wish I could have booked more), and I can feel how each personalised exercise has helped me improve. I'm a fairly advanced skier and by working on all the detailed and in-depth feedback Davide gave me, I now feel so much more confident where I used to be quite insecure. It's really rare to get such high quality ski lesson, with all kind of thorough observations, advise and corrections. Davide went out of his way to make a short video of me skiing with comments on each of my positions sent after the lesson, which has been incredibly eye-opening to me in understanding what I was doing wrong. Besides the excellence of the teaching, I greatly appreciated Davide's super positive attitude, generosity, kindness, flexibility and his constant support. His love for skiing and for the mountains has been truly inspiring to me. I usually don't write review for anything/anyone, but I had to pay tribute to Davide as a thank you. I can only wish you all to take a lesson with him.
David put my two kids who have never tried skiing before to red slopes in just 5 days. Kids had so much fun. Dido is the most amazing instructor and a Wonderful person.
David is amazing instructor fantastic skier. But the most importantly the kindest and most pleasant person. He managed to put my kinds in two days inbred slopes. Kids loved him. He does not look at the watch. He gives himself in full. Extremely patient, played with kids and gives them a wonderful experience.
Les cours de Davide sont vraiment très bien, j'ai beaucoup progressé grâce à lui. Il s'est mettre en confiance et est toujours d'humeur joyeuse. De plus, ses retours commentés des videos afin de s'améliorer sont très utiles.
Best skiing instructor ever, ultra knowledgeable, friendly, makes you progress at your pace.
You can arrange the meeting point with your chosen instructor by using the Maison Sport messaging system. We recommend agreeing this before you book your lessons, but it can always be arranged at a later date. The instructor should be able to suggest somewhere that is convenient for you both.
Any instructor that has a blue ‘verified’ tick icon on their profile has had their qualifications vetted and verified by the Maison Sport team, the level of qualification required to have a verified account on Maison Sport varies slightly by country. As follows: France – all verified instructors must carry a ‘Carte Professionelle’ licence, the qualification requirements for this licence are very high. The licence is administered by the French Government (to attain a Carte Professionelle most instructors will have studied for an average of 5 years+ to attain the correct level of qualification). Aside from requiring the instructor to have the highest level of qualification, which includes numerous teaching and technical performance diplomas in skiing or snowboarding, European mountain safety courses and the Euro speed test, the instructors are also required to have a criminal record check and a first aid certificate. Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Finland, Scotland, Spain – all verified instructors must carry a minimum level of qualification which must be at the ISIA card level or above. Instructors working independently must provide documentation to show they meet the local regulatory requirements to do so and instructors that are working for a ski school must provide details of the school they work for.
Unless otherwise agreed with the instructor no more than 6 people can take part in a lesson, each instructor will have their own policy for this, so it is best to just double check with them by sending a message. Most instructors won't charge extra if there is more than 1 person taking part in the lesson, but always best to check with them before booking.s
