These independent ski teachers and guides know the mountains better than anyone out there and will tailor your experience to meet your specific needs. Meribel, Courchevel and Val Thorens comprise the largest ski area in the world and as incredible as the area is to explore, it can also be a bit daunting. Not so with the help of a Sensations guide, who will lead you off piste, or steer you towards the easy runs, depending on your specific needs and skiing ability. Exceptionally talented athletes in their own right, the Sensations guides are in a league of their own and are far superior to the red-clad official ski school instructors. Your Sensations guide will challenge you and teach you at the same time, while always making your safety the number one priority. Hiring a Ski Sensations guide is the best investment you can make in your ski vacation and will insure that you see more of the mountains than you would ever see if you were skiing alone and will also insure that your experience will be a worry-free one. The Sensations guide I know best is Ludo, an unbelievably talented athlete and a truly terrific guide and teacher, who has become an essential part of any trip we make to les trois vallees. Ludo is more of a guide than an instructor, but when he does offer his advice, it is always unbelievably helpful and concise and he is a fantastic person to follow, because his turns are perfect and he will adjust his speed to suit you, so that you can literally follow his exact path down the mountain. I would trust Ludo to take me skiing anywhere and our entire family adores him. I cannot imagine tackling les trois vallees without Ludo and although I've not skied with other members of Sensations, I am confident that all of their guides are absolutely top notch. Although it's best to reserve in advance, last-minute availability does exist at times and it's worth a shot, because skiing with Sensations is truly a treat not to miss.
