Mountain MASTERS

Established in 1988, Mountain Masters was started by a small group of 3 ski instructors and guides who had all worked for big, mass market ski schools and shared a dream to provide more focused, tailored instruction. The ski school has grown but the ethos stays the same – as well as being some of the best in winter sports (ex professionals, national examiners, demo-team members) the team are also excellent instructors who value things like psychology and tactics just as much as they value technique. Adult group and private lessons are available in skiing or snowboarding. You will find Mountain Masters at Killy Sport by the Tourist Office.
