Endorsements

Below are clients comments we have received this season. We wish to thank all for their remarks as this helps to improve our standards.

Dear Nick,

Thank you for a fantastic couple of day's guiding for the kids they all had such a great time and learned a lot.  We were lucky because they remembered everywhere they had been and took us there in the afternoons!  We loved St Foy and will definitely be returning so we will keep you posted!

All the best

First of all a big thank you to your company for organising our ski lessons in Tignes last week.  We had a fabulous time and really enjoyed our holiday.

Secondly I must tell you how fabulous Neil was.  He found himself with a very split group - four youngsters who wanted to race ahead and then Kevin and I.  Kevin found the whole concept of skiing very difficult at the beginning and I must tell you how patient and kind Neil was to him and to me.   He managed to deal with both ends of the group exceptionally well and really worked hard to ensure that Kevinn gained the confidence he needed to make progress.   On the 4th day when Neil got him to snow plough down the Rosset slope and then shook Kevin's hand at the bottom and said, "you are a skiier" Kevin was SO pleased and is telling everyone at home about that moment.   Neill really has great perception and people skills and knew exactly how far to push and when to encourage.

I wanted you all to know that we found your whole company's approach top class, from the welcome e mail I received on my initial enquiry, to the farewell handshake from Neil on our last day.

Thank you very much Nick, we wish you and your Company success in the future and hope to bump into Neil again when we return.

Best wishes

Hi Nick

Just wanted to say Neil was excellent with the children, (and my brief time with him) William was skiing on red runs by the end of the week and actually went to Val d'lsere and back on our last day. Bethan was technically very good though a bit slow as still getting over the fear factor I think, but she hardly ever fell over and was comfortable on the blue runs. Me, well! Fell over alot but finally got the hang of it by the end of the week, slightly kamikaze style which I hope to improve on our next visit to Tignes, which we loved by the way though could of done with less snow... Shame we didnt get to meet but planning on booking a private for me next time we come back.

Just wanted to say thanks for sorting out the lessons for us. I will definately use this ski school again when we come back. Also Neil our instructor was such a great guy and brilliant instructor. He made the lessons fun and also taught me to ski confidently at the end of the 3 days.

Many Thanks

A slightly belated thank you for the session you had with Bella and Jonny yesterday. We skied with them all day today, ending with a descent of Double M into Val Claret. They've come on fantastically - Bella has a new found confidence in the stability of edging and Jonny just kept on going and going down Double M. So many thanks for your time with them both yesterday. If we manage to get back here at the end of the season we'll drop you a line.

With best regards,

PZ

I've just returned from a short break in Tignes and had 3 beginner lessons with Neil. Just wanted to pass on good feedback. Although we started as a group of 5 beginners, everyone came up at different speeds and Neil managed this superbly ensuring that we were all getting enough focus and advice without getting bored. As an instructor he was always upbeat and enthusiastic and kept the lessons fun at all times- even on occasions when we weren't doing so well. From a complete novice, I finished the lessons with confidence, good basic skillset and a real desire to ski again and get more time on the slopes. I'd highly recommend Neil as an excellent instructor and Ski Encore school to anyone visiting the resort and would certainly book again for more lessons on my next visit.

Regards,

JC

Just a quick note regarding our ski lessons on the Flying Start. Our instructor was Nick and I wanted to drop you a note to let you know that he was a fantastic instructor. He was incredibly patient and made sure that the group progressed at the same rate despite varying abilities.

Joe and I got an incredible amount from the lessons he gave and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to our friends. I was quite nervous about skiing but he put me at ease and I feel that my progress was down to his patience.

Just wanted to say a really big thank you for organising our skiing lessons for us! We have just arrived home from Tignes where we had a beginners course with Nick. The lessons were fantastic and Nick was great. We really appreciate the time he spent with us and cant wait to arrange another skiing trip. We are also very grateful that we were able to learn in such a small group, some of the other lessons we saw going on had about 16-20 beginners in, we were very lucky to have booked up with you! 

Just to say BIG thanks to Nick - great lessons and a lot of fun... 3 days of lessons and I was skiing down a blue run!

I am really writing to thank Nick for his superb instruction. My skiing has been transformed in only five hours of personal instruction! I hadn't had a lesson for more than twenty years and I can say confidently that he was superb, way above the standards of any previous instructors I have had. Nick explained the technical side brilliantly enabling me to fully understand the reasons behind his general instructions, the flow, the arc, the radius, the body stance, etc, etc.  I really felt that I have now got to grips with the basics of carving, both in large sweeping turns on blue runs and on shorter turns on steeper red bumpy runs.  He also made the lessons great fun.

Hi Nick

I hope your move went well & apologise for the delay in sending this email – I should have sent it a month ago.

I wanted to thank you again, not only for my lesson but also for the lessons you organised for the rest of the group. Despite a few people spending too long in the pub, consequently sleeping in & then missing lessons, those who did turn up loved them. Everyone was very complimentary of all the instructors & best of all every single beginner has said they want to go skiing again. I nearly had a few people convinced to do one more quick weekend in Tignes before the season ended. 

Enjoy your summer – it will have to be better than the one we look like we are going to have in the UK.  

Kind regards

As far as the boys are concerned, skiing with Nick Tomorrow (sorry, family joke, we told them they were skiing with Nick tomorrow, in order to get them to go to bed early and they thought that was your name - as in Nick Tomorrow...) was the absolute highlight of their holiday, and they believe skiing is the best thing a boy can do. They can not wait to hear when we can come back!

Hi Nick I'm so sorry not to have written before to say thank you so much for taking Thomas out last Sunday - he said he learnt so much and was up there first thing on Monday morning practising!  Many thanks

Hi Nick, I just wanted to say how much Heather enjoyed learning with you again in Tignes this year & thank you for taking such good care of her.

It looks like we may actually be returning again next year so perhaps she’ll be able to continue with you then. In the meantime, have a lovely summer.

Hi Nick, We thought we'd write a quick endorsement for your website about Neil who was superb and helped make a great skiing holiday. It was a shame that Grace only made it for 2 days after breaking her leg (not in her ski lesson, I hasten to add! And Tabitha missing the last two lessons with tonsilitus - what are we like?? They were both very upset that they were missing out on their lessons with Neil and heartbroken that their new passion for skiing was being thwarted! We hope to return next year, with no accidents/illness....

Our kids aged 5-8 had never skied before and were booked in for morning lessons with Neil. His fun, easy-going but excellent tuition meant that within a day they were relaxed and happy snow ploughing down the slope. By day 4 they were putting us adults to shame with their confidence and willingness to tackle anything even in heavy snow with virtually no visibility. Neil also taught me for a couple of hours and tamed flailing arms and wobbly skis into something that managed to get down a black run without realising it. He gave me so much more confidence and the ability to tackle anything without throwing myself at breakneck speed down the mountain. A big thanks to his excellent teaching for both kids and an adult, and for making skiing fun.

Many thanks for your help and we hope to be in touch in the near future!

Best wishes and Happy Easter

Just a quick note to say thank you to yourselves for teaching my children to ski in Tignes. Although this was their very first time skiing on real snow they absolutely loved the experience and this is thanks to Neil’s excellent coaching in such a short time. Think they have got the bug now as they want to come back for a whole week. We will be in touch then.

Many thanks again.

Kind Regards

Wow thank you Nick, I did not know who the cd was from and had not looked at it but now we have and Felix LOVES it and has vowed that when he leaves school he will only ski for the rest of his life!!!  I might be his groupie!!!

How is St Foy/Tignes?  Busy this week I guess with all the private school English!!!  We are going to a tiny resort in Italy next week where I skiied as a child, about the same number of lifts as St Foy!  We are introducing our 3-year old to the slopes, hopefully she will take to it as quickly as the rest of them!

We had a great time in France and am certain we shall return - we viewed a few properties on our last day!

All the best and happy skiing!

Hi Nick, We're back home and Tignes seems to be a kinda distant memory!

Just want to thank you for helping Josie out.  She is a crazy 5 year old and I hope she did as she was told and didn't cause you any trouble.  She really did like you.

Unfortunately I didn't get on so well and in hindsight I should have booked lessons with you.  I was lumbered with an instructor who spoke very little English so next time we will know......  I am however going to more lessons at the Snowdome so hopefully things should improve.

Nick, many thanks to you and Elaine for such a great trip. Naithan and I had the best two days skiing we have done- both the Les Arcs and St. Foy days were excellent, with the off-piste being truly memorable.
The use of your appt for changing and the lifts you and Elaine gave us were very kind.
I have been for a good run this morning- the hills were easy after the Tignes experience!

When you are over here later in the year do please call in- or indeed you would be very welcome to stay over at our house in Wheatley if that was good for you.

Best wishes

Well we made it back with only an hour delay on the flight so not too bad!!!

I just wanted to say a great big thank you for your excellent tuition for the girls and me.  Jasmine is still absolutely buzzing and can't wait to return next year and see you again!!!  And Rhianna just says she wants to see you, Tom and Tom's mum!!!

It made a huge difference to our whole holiday with your excellent tuition and the fact you treated our whole family as friends rather than just clients.

Our best family holiday (so far) and I think you contributed a big part to that.  (Have we got our point across yet ;-) )

I promise I will always concentrate when turning LEFT !!!!!!!

Remember to look us up if you are passing you will always be welcome.

Say hi to Elaine, Tom and Ruby.

Kindest regards

Nick, Many thanks for the lessons for the kids last week, they had a fantastic time. Without exception all 5 came on greatly in their skiing

Proof of this must be that 4 of them were skiing Blacks on Saturday!!

Jonathan had a thoroughly good time and to see him ski solo was brilliant.

Once again many thanks to yourself and Neil.
