The independent ski and snowboard instructor provider is partnering with a number of providers in the UK and across the world. It says this will enhance the booking experience and drive growth.
The new partnerships will allow tour operators and chalet companies to offer their customers Maison Sport’s product and give their booking agents a one-stop-shop for booking lessons in all resorts across Europe.
“We’re focused on expanding our services and reach, right across the globe, to enhance our customer journey and deliver growth,” said the CEO of Maison Sport, Nick Robinson.

About Maison Sport
Maison Sport was created by a team of industry professionals with over 25 years of ski teaching experience.
All ex-British ski team members & fully qualified ski instructors, the founding team at Maison Sport have successfully worked together over the past 6 years.
The vision for Maison Sport was conceived after the trio acquired a traditional ski school in France, and the company has grown from having a presence in one resort to 13.
Witnessing an antiquated way of booking lessons, they spotted an opportunity to solve a problem for customers and ski instructors, by using a technology platform to connect the two parties together directly.
Maison Sport offers reduced costs to the customer of as much as 50% and provides a more ethical and profitable practice for the instructors, who keep up 93% of the cost of the lessons.
Much like many successful marketplaces, one of Maison Sport’s key selling points is its unique instructor reviews, only left by past customers, which enable new customers to make informed decisions about their ski or snowboard lessons.
Currently, the Maison Sport marketplace includes more than 364 resorts and over 1,300 trusted, qualified instructors across France, Switzerland, Italy and Austria.
In France, Maison Sport’s instructor pool is second only to the Ecole de Ski Francais, a company that was founded in 1945.
