I did my Basi with Kev! The dudes a legend! Just wait until you see his euro carves 😉
I can't recommend him enough, any lessons or training you take with him, will improve your riding for sure!! And will be 100% money well spent!
I'll be doing one of your sessions for sure Kev. I am still enjoying the benefits of what you taught me in my 2 lessons in Courchevel. Anyone thinking of booking , don't think just do...
"Hi Rob and Mark,I would just like to thank you and your company for the wonderful experience I had. After years of skiing, I decided to give snowboarding a go, but was a bit hesitant to begin with. My first day on the 5 day course with Rob went well due to his patience and expert help. Rob gave me confidence and by the end of the 3 hours I was able to leaf down the slope which was very encouraging.Later that afternoon I was struck with a stomach bug, which meant I missed a lesson but thankfully RTM were able to accomodate me in the 4 day group so my skill level was on a par with them. However, after more bouts of illness through the week, more lessons missed and a lack of experience on the slopes, when I returned for the last lesson on Friday Mark suggested it would not be suitable to take me in the group as I would be out of my depth and it would affect my confidence. This was obviously the right decision. I was heartbroken as it was my last day and I was finally feeling half normal again.Mark, however, kindly offered me some private tuition in the afternoon instead. I had a fantastic time in the morning and then Mark spent a couple of hours with me in the afternoon. I was really struggling with the toe to heel turn but Mark remained patient and realised immediately what I was doing wrong. His clear explanations made all the difference and by the end of the lessons I was linking my turns albeit slowly! This was only due to Mark's patience, skill and explanations.I cannot thank you all enough as this ended my holiday on a high note and I am now driving round the roads at home heel to toe etc round the corners! I believe you have converted me from a skiier to a not quite so cool and fluid snowboarder! Thank You for your patience."
“We have just returned from completing the 4 day beginners snowboarding course with Kevin at Meribel and would like to express our thanks for the great week. Kevin was an excellent instructor, great at explaining the techniques and telling us what we were doing wrong. He had a great manner, positive attitude and was extremely patient. We are already thinking of our next snowboard trip and would not hesitate to use RTM again.”

Thanks for the Beginner/Novice 3 day course 2nd, 3rd and 4th March 2015.I really enjoyed it and felt that under Kev’s expert and enjoyable guidance I progressed significantly and was able to tackle a couple of blue runs on my own in the afternoons, with good consistent turns (where is wasn’t too steep). As I hoped, I did successfully ride back to 1650 from 1850 on the Wednesday afternoon - although going down the Prameruel track to Roc Mugnier lift in 1850 was pretty tricky!!! But made it down to the chalet (just off the Mickey slope) without too many issues.Many thanks to Kev who kept us all going and progressing even in the rain, helped by his really really bad jokes!!!We are booked for next year again in 1650 and so if I board, I will contact you for some more lessons.

“Kevin was amazing. Our kids were a total pain, I'm sure, and he was great the whole time. Hopefully we live in London long enough to look you guys up again. Thanks for top service!”

"Hey guys, Just a quick thanks for an excellent week's lessons last week. I was in the morning intermediate group with Linden.I've not had lessons since my first week boarding and am so glad I decided to go with you guys. Apart from realising how many bad habits I've picked up over the last few years it was a great time! Linden is a fantastic teacher. He's got a great knack for somehow just knowing how far to push people and for getting them to try things a little bit out of their comfort zone which they might not do without him nudging them along, and yet giving them so much confidence that they feel they can just do it. And his judgement appears to be dead right! He took us to a few slopes which we all looked down thinking 'Oh My God', but then in his relaxed and cheerful manner just made us feel like it would be well within our skills ride them and sure enough he was right.On top of that he made each lesson a lot of fun, his happy manner really helps to relax you and give you confidence. He also was very good at seeing what we can improve on and giving us little pointers to make our riding that bit better. He was great at explaining what we could do to improve, and importantly, why what he was saying would make a difference. I've got a lot to work on with my boarding now but that's the whole point of lessons after all! And I had a really fun time.I had a massive smile on my face all week! I'll definitely be coming back for more! Cheers"
“Thanks so much for the pics, really good to see you again. As usual, fantastic service and advice from RTM, Kev did a Brilliant job and is a great addition to the team. I wish you all continued success and hope to catch up with you soon,”

I can highly recommend Kevin Edwards as an instructor.
I have been lucky enough to have received tuition on a private lesson in Courchevel. Great guy, patient and builds your confidence. Hope to have more tuition to hone my skills either home or away again.
Can't say enough about how awesome Kevin Edwards is. Sorry to embarrass you Kev. Top bloke and a must for any snowboarder wanting to improve at any level.
"Just a quick email to say thank you very much for the lessons provided by Lyndon his approach to teaching was well received.It is easy to see why your company has such a good reputation amongst your peers. Generally William has a natural aversion to group lessons and has been a great struggle to get him to think about joining organised sessions. At the end of the week Will was full of enthusiasm, and indeed disappointed that the lessons were ending. I think the last day through the trees was a great bonus for him.It has been a joy to see the improvements in his riding ability.Best regards, Martin"
Kev taught me to snowboard and I did my L1 BASI with him. The courses will be great and your riding will improve massively if you take his feedback onboard.
