Just a quick note to say thanks to you and Mel for sorting me out with ski lessons last week.
My technique and confidence improved immeasurably and to the annoyance of my wife and her sister,
they eventually conceded that I was now better than them, which believe me is a bit of a miracle!
Both of them will be having lessons next year in order to ‘keep up’
Mel was a fantastic teacher and I enjoyed his company and insight enormously.
I will keep an eye out for you on Facebook and would be happy to put a testimonial onto your web page

I visited Alpe d'huez one very sunny week in January 2016. I had 2 lessons with Stuart Adamson to find my feet
and after Third Day Blues where I completely lost my confidence again, Stuart immediately fitted me in for another.
Stuart is a very personable character, full of stories and fun, but more importantly an excellent educator.
He listens to you and takes all thought and fears on board, and knows how to help. If one method doesn't click then
his many years of teaching skiing has equipped him with plenty of other tools to try.
After my last lesson, I had a very strong final two days, confidently tackling hard-packed and icy-in-places red runs
and exploring much more of the available ski area.
I would not hesitate to recommend Stuart or his other colleagues in Masterclass.
Best wishes and many thanks again for your help in the snow! :)
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you for the lessons. I thought my skiing had reached a plateau and I was stuck at intermediate level (and had been for the last 5 years or so). The 2 lessons that I had with you made a huge difference. I can hardly believe that I made so much progress in such a short space of time. I now feel confident on all surfaces, including the icy ones that we had that week. My family are pleased because I’m skiing faster because I feel in control now. I found the methods and descriptions that you used really clear and simple to implement. Best of all, my knees didn’t hurt all week!
Please feel free to post any of this on your website if you want. I’m sure we’ll be back soon. Niamh is keen to have some more lessons to capitalise on the progress that she’s made.
I can report that Mel is an absolute genius!!! Well, magician, quite frankly.
I have not properly enjoyed the skiing part of a skiing holiday for
years, and the short time with Mel totally transformed all that! Not
He corrected my technique overall: taught me how to ski basically.....
plus a special manoeuvre to keep me calm, confident and happy when I’m on a challenging bit.
Like magic, it totally worked! I wasn’t frightened, and therefore
didn’t “go into one” at all.
Thank you so much for helping me, and feel free to put this on your
website. Please pass on my thanks (I did anyway; profusely) and best
wishes to Mel.
