Beth has been living and working in the mountains since the age of 18. After many years working at Plymouth ski slope she has since been based in Italy, France, Spain, Japan, Australia and Switzerland.
Beth loves working with all ages and abilities but in particular the more nervous clients who want a confidence boost to take with them onto the slopes! She is currently working towards her ISIA qualification.
Why did you choose to teach skiing?
I love teaching Snowsports because I get too meet and work with so many different people of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds. Sharing my love of skiing and the mountains is the best job I can think of!
What do you do in the summer?
In the past I worked in the Italian Dolomites as a walk organiser and watercolour painting tutor, alongside managing a small chalet team. Most recently I have been in Australia, trying out a Southern Hemisphere winter season.
Where is your favourite part of Zermatt to ski?
My favourite place is Sunnegga. There are so many great runs, whether you want to cruise down the blues past some amazing restaurants, or take on National’s steep pitches through the trees. Tuftern the red is great too and there’s even a mogul-filled Itinerary called Paradise! Something for everyone.
What is your favourite restaurant in Zermatt?
My favourite restaurant is Zum Zee, especially when sitting outside on a sunny spring day! Nestled amongst traditional, old farmhouses on the way down from Furi, Zum Zee has a great menu and atmosphere. It really feels a world away from life outside the valley.
What handy tip do you have for anyone visiting Zermatt?
Go out in the evenings and explore Zermatt’s old town. There are streets of lovely old wooden chalets, built up on stilts and stones that really transport you back to a time before tourism found Zermatt. At Christmas in the snow it’s just beautiful.
