PDS Ski School - Ski Instructors

The Ski With Ease & Board With Ease Team

English speaking instructors Avoriaz (Morzine & Les Gets). We use fun and effective easy-learning techniques to teach you how to “get the most without using the most” from your skiing and boarding lessons.

Glenn Wellesley, Ski With Ease Ski School Director created our teaching methods. His technique came as a result of a ski racing injury when he lost the physical strength to ski at race-level using orthodox methods so, he researched the latest techniques in bio-mechanics and sports science to find the easiest, most energy-efficient ways to ski. His expertise developed lessons specifically for nervous skiers as well as basing all of our lessons around having fun! It’s our 6th season and our team has now grown to include Board With Ease Snowboard School.
