Q. Where is your favourite part of Zermatt to ski?
A. My favourite place in Zermatt to ski is on the Sunnegga mountain being able to ski from the very top all the way down past my favourite champagne bar into town. Its simply beautiful skiing through the trees looking down on Zermatt.

A. I work pretty much all year round working as a ski instructor. I work in Australia at Perisher as a children’s instructor and adaptive guide.
When I’m finally out of my ski boots for the odd few weeks, you will usually find me on a beach in a tropical place.
