Patrick as "Bulle"
We love him for his adaptability to teach anybody. The little ones, children or teens adore him. Ladies and gentlemen, working on your technique on piste you will ask for more ! Off-piste skiing, he’s good at matching level and terrain, riding with Bulle should be nothing but happiness.
Patrick has been working with Snocool for many years, what a good instructor he is ! If he’s not teaching, you can admire him freestyling in the half-pipe or taking care of his lovely blondy 5 years old daughter « Lila ».
Welcome back to our sweet English speaking teddy bear ! Alex is a former instructor at Snocool before he left to explore the mountain of the globe. In order to ski more than anyone, he’s ready to drop his instructor ‘s job and work in a snack or in a shop, The mood of the day will decide whether he rides his skis, board or télémark.
He likes to share his passion with his guest, his sympathy will enable you to feel comfortable, his patience will allow you to progress. Alex is also a real magician, he gets the chill when he is doing a trick, feel free to ask for one !

If you are a beginner, he will be cautious to teach you the evolution and fun of this new feeling. If you are an intermediate, he will teach you step by step how to master a blue/red run whether you are on ski or board. If you are an advanced, he might suggest you to explore gently the off-piste by developping your technique. If you are ready to use the skins, he can show you these unforgettable views.
Norbert as "Nono"
Nono was Misha's snowboard coach when she was racing at the age of 18 !
He's therefore a real pro in his teaching methods whether it's for skiing or snowboarding. He's a dynamic and smiling instructor, the time with him is full power learning or discovering places.
He'd rather show you the off-piste itineraries of Sainte Foy, Tignes or Val d'Isère that he knows well but could also teach to little ones and be funny for them.
