Ski Instructor in Cortina D'Ampezzo, Italy

Zannoni Mauro

Zannoni Mauro was our personal ski instructor during our last ski trip to Cortina D'Ampezzo.  A careful person, who thinks, safety should come first, he didn't want to take too many students at one go.  So, on the first day, my son and I took our first ski lesson with him. Though falling is normally expected during ski lessons, under his instruction, none of us fall during the entire ski lesson. He is superb, and a very professional ski instructor. 

Then, on the second day, my husband took his turn.  Initially, my husband was not so sure whether he should attempt it since he has not fully recovered from arm injury.  When we asked Mauro whether my husband should try.  He said, "He should be fine, I will take care that he doesn't fall."  And really, my husband didn't fall and had the first memorable ski lesson of his life.

Having said that, Mauro ensures that we continue to improve and go for higher stage.  My son went from beginner slope, to higher slope, as days went by. He sees how the student progresses; if he thinks that they can go for more difficult slope, he will challenge them. Since Mauro took great care of my son, I felt alright to let him bring my 10 year old son to take the ski lift to the higher slope. My son was having the best time of his life.  Whenever my son came down from the slope, I asked him whether he had a good time.  He said, the higher the slope, the more fun it brought.
