About Masterclass

Stuart started Masterclass in Alpe d’Huez in 1993, in order to offer British clients the opportunity to take a course of intensive coaching with some of the top British trained instructors. Stuart holds all the relevant qualifications including BASI 1, BASI Trainer, the French Equivalence and was even a schoolmaster.  Most importantly Stuart has over forty years of experience from which to draw.

Mel Mallen has worked in most of the European countries during his 25 years of ski teaching experience. Mel now lives in Alpe d’Huez and works alongside Stuart.  Mel has been at the top of the British Ski Instruction system for many years, holding the highest awards including BASI 1, BASI trainer / examiner, ESC coach and the full French Equivalence.

Mountain Chalet receives nothing for recommending Christelle, we do so because we have experienced 1st hand Christelle’s attention to detail and fantastic ski coaching.  Our daughter (Catrin aged 9) ski races and has had a myriad of ski instructors over the last 5 years, in the 2014 / 15 winter season Catrin had a week with Christelle and she had a fabulous experience.  Without doubt Christelle has been the best ski coach she (and us as parents) has experienced, because of this we feel safe and confident to recommend Christelle to you!

They allow the body to re-connect with its freedom of movement and regulating its energy, to help self-healing. The physiotherapists and osteopaths will describe the steps they are about to take, and can recommend movements, exercises and nutritional advice to clients who would like more information.


These massages create an immediate sense of peace in your physical and nervous system. Performed by physiotherapists or osteopaths who are there to listen, they are particularly recommended for relaxing people who are stressed and to let the body and mind regenerate.


Novices and experienced people will benefit from the very same treatments that athletes from the French Ski Federation receive, to optimise their muscular performance. These massages increase cardio-vascular circulation and the elasticity of the involved muscle groups.
