"Hey guys, Just a quick thanks for an excellent week's lessons last week. I was in the morning intermediate group with Linden. I've not had lessons since my first week boarding and am so glad I decided to go with you guys. Apart from realising how many bad habits I've picked up over the last few years it was a great time! Linden is a fantastic teacher. He's got a great knack for somehow just knowing how far to push people and for getting them to try things a little bit out of their comfort zone which they might not do without him nudging them along, and yet giving them so much confidence that they feel they can just do it. And his judgement appears to be dead right! He took us to a few slopes which we all looked down thinking 'Oh My God', but then in his relaxed and cheerful manner just made us feel like it would be well within our skills ride them and sure enough he was right. On top of that he made each lesson a lot of fun, his happy manner really helps to relax you and give you confidence. He also was very good at seeing what we can improve on and giving us little pointers to make our riding that bit better. He was great at explaining what we could do to improve, and importantly, why what he was saying would make a difference. I've got a lot to work on with my boarding now but that's the whole point of lessons after all! And I had a really fun time. I had a massive smile on my face all week! I'll definitely be coming back for more! Cheers"

Kev taught me to snowboard and I did my L1 BASI with him. The courses will be great and your riding will improve massively if you take his feedback onboard.

I did my Basi with Kev! The dudes a legend! Just wait until you see his euro carves 😉 I can't recommend him enough, any lessons or training you take with him, will improve your riding for sure!! And will be 100% money well spent!

"Just a quick email to say thank you very much for the lessons provided by Lyndon his approach to teaching was well received. It is easy to see why your company has such a good reputation amongst your peers. Generally William has a natural aversion to group lessons and has been a great struggle to get him to think about joining organised sessions. At the end of the week Will was full of enthusiasm, and indeed disappointed that the lessons were ending. I think the last day through the trees was a great bonus for him. It has been a joy to see the improvements in his riding ability. Best regards, Martin"

“Just wanted to say thank you for booking in my lesson with Kev last week. He was absolutely fantastic, totally patient and improved my confidence no end!  I am going to be boarding again for a week in mid-February, is there any chance he makes his way up to Val Thorens for lessons there??”

I stayed at Chalet Paloma last week and had a small group lesson with Kevin. Just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed it. Kevin was a great teacher and incredibly patient! I got so much more out of the lesson versus my last one ten years ago (not with you guys!) which had put me off trying again...    Persevered later in the week trying to put it all into practice and turns were coming along pretty well by the end. Will definitely use RTM again next visit.  So if you can pass on my thanks.

"Hi Rob and Mark, I would just like to thank you and your company for the wonderful experience I had. After years of skiing, I decided to give snowboarding a go, but was a bit hesitant to begin with. My first day on the 5 day course with Rob went well due to his patience and expert help. Rob gave me confidence and by the end of the 3 hours I was able to leaf down the slope which was very encouraging. Later that afternoon I was struck with a stomach bug, which meant I missed a lesson but thankfully RTM were able to accomodate me in the 4 day group so my skill level was on a par with them. However, after more bouts of illness through the week, more lessons missed and a lack of experience on the slopes, when I returned for the last lesson on Friday Mark suggested it would not be suitable to take me in the group as I would be out of my depth and it would affect my confidence. This was obviously the right decision. I was heartbroken as it was my last day and I was finally feeling half normal again. Mark, however, kindly offered me some private tuition in the afternoon instead. I had a fantastic time in the morning and then Mark spent a couple of hours with me in the afternoon. I was really struggling with the toe to heel turn but Mark remained patient and realised immediately what I was doing wrong. His clear explanations made all the difference and by the end of the lessons I was linking my turns albeit slowly! This was only due to Mark's patience, skill and explanations. I cannot thank you all enough as this ended my holiday on a high note and I am now driving round the roads at home heel to toe etc round the corners! I believe you have converted me from a skiier to a not quite so cool and fluid snowboarder! Thank You for your patience."

“Just wanted to send a quick note, to say thanks for our group lesson on Sunday last week. Kevin was fantastic, really easy to get along with and put us all right at ease straight away. In particular I wanted to say how happy Saz (Sarah) in our group was as this were her fourth trip abroad and she had not managed to link any turns before. Within the one hour lesson with Kevin she was linking turns and was doing so the whole holiday from then on. Her boyfriend Matt was especially happy as it really did mean as a group we could do more for the rest of our time in Meribel.”

“Thanks so much for the pics, really good to see you again. As usual, fantastic service and advice from RTM, Kev did a Brilliant job and is a great addition to the team. I wish you all continued success and hope to catch up with you soon,”

“We have just returned from completing the 4 day beginners snowboarding course with Kevin at Meribel and would like to express our thanks for the great week. Kevin was an excellent instructor, great at explaining the techniques and telling us what we were doing wrong. He had a great manner, positive attitude and was extremely patient. We are already thinking of our next snowboard trip and would not hesitate to use RTM again.”

"Just a quick note to say how brilliant our week in Courchevel was, not least because of the time we spent with the RTM guys. My morning lessons with Kerr have taken me on to the next step with my boarding and despite having a crisis of confidence midweek - heavy snow, high winds, no visability - where i found myself whimpering like a baby at the top of the Chenus red run, Kerr got me linking my turns down the run and then discussing life, the universe and everything on the lift back up, this time with a smile on my face. This was the 3rd time i'd been out to Courchevel and done lessons with RTM, from my first balances on the bunny hill with Tom to last week's powder runs through the trees and flatland tricks with Kerr i can't imagine wanting to do my coaching with anyone other than you guys!!"
