Freeride ski athlete.
After a classical training in alpine skiing, Raphael chose the path of freeskiing (freestyle, freeride). For many years he participated in freestyle competitions and then naturally turned to freeride.
Present for many years on the world qualification in freeride.
At the same time, he teaches skiing at the French ski school. With an experience of more than 10 years.
"Doing it according to the conditions is my conviction, from the beautiful powder day to the snowpark session to pure technique. For me, every day brings its share of surprises!"
Really good, great knowledge of the area, definitely recommend
Had a great first day and my confidence went sky high - for a total beginner doing blues Raph has done an awesome job and it was exciting, he was nice, but also pushing me to do things which I needed. he also made sense for me of the stuff I learnt before and I was able to improve my technique. Then the afternoon following my lesson I went out with my boyfriend, pushed too hard and got scared! The next day Raph got me back on the slopes when I didn't want to and I enjoyed skiing again and for that I thank him!
he is a very patient guy with kids! My 2 kids loved him. Thank you
I took Raphael for two lessons as an instructor to regain trust after a serious knee injury. Thanks to his kindness and psychological skills, I trust myself, found my courage back and could ride again on icy black slopes at the end of the lesson, engaging myself! The next lesson we went freeriding, it was just great! I can only recommend Raphael !
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
