Marc Pesas - Ski instructor

Marc Pesas

From my upbringing in an outdoor sports-oriented family in a Parisian suburb, I inherited the love of coordinated movement and being one with nature.

I was a young rock climber, a skier, a camping fan, then I gradually discovered other activities like cycling, sailing and horse-riding. Now I’m lucky enough to be able to share my passion with those who place their confidence in my teaching.

My professional background – I was first a teacher, then a director in charge of a UCPA centre (National Association of Outdoor Sports Centres) for 20 years, and I also spent some time at the University of Savoie – has enabled me to gain a lot of experience in management and creation. In order to expand my career path, I later came back to teaching and joined Evolution 2 Ski School.

A sportsman at heart, I respect others, nature and a healthy lifestyle : “A sound mind in a healthy body” is my motto. I like to live life to the fullest in everything I do, whether it be cooking, teaching or building my own house with my wife.

My teaching

  • My aim : technical, easy-to-grasp skiing, aiming to maximize efficiency for greater pleasure.
  • A solid understanding of ski mechanics, together with a generally good insight into my clients’ personalities, enable me to adapt my methods, “moulding” my teaching to fit all levels of ability.
  • A soft and slow approach to begin the week with a “back to basics” session. Tailor-made lessons to match the abilities and wishes of each individual, with safety as a top priority (warm up – focal points – wind down).
  • A modern approach where each technical ingredient can be fine-tuned to make you a more competent all-mountain skier, capable of skiing on all types of terrain (groomed slopes, ice hard-pack, powder snow, moguls, steep slopes).
  • Confidence-building for the more timorous, as well as individual problem-solving. I am very patient !
  • Personal follow-up from technical, psychological and physical angles. Individualized advice for equipment purchase or hire, during lessons and year after year.
  • The more you get to know and appreciate your client, the more you can help him to progress. It’s all about sharing the passion and the pleasure!
