William Bankes Ski and Snowboard School

I am a fully qualified French ski instructor. I have lived in the French alps for more than 20 years. I used to be part of the French snowboarding team, racing on the World Cup circuit in boarder cross. I have been a ski instructor for the last 6 years.

I can offer skiing, snowboarding or telemarking lessons for beginners till advanced levels, whether it is for children or adults.

I can also guide you around the station, either on or off piste, whilst giving you a few tips on technique to teaching you how to use an avalanche beacon and how to act.

I also offer day or multiday trips, either to other ski resorts, or ski touring and splitboarding.

I work in the Serre Chevalier valley ( Briançon, Chantemerle, villeneuve, Monêtier-les-Bains ), La Grave, Puy St Vincent, Montgenevre…
