Chloe Nicholls has been skiing from a young age and first learned on holiday with her family. She has many happy memories of skiing with her family and hopes to help others make happy memories of their own in Zermatt.
After graduating from University, Chloe followed her passion for skiing and being in the mountains and trained as a ski instructor. Chloe began teaching in the UK and Italy, and now teaches skiing year-round in Zermatt and Australia. This will be her third winter in Zermatt.
Whenever Chloe is not teaching skiing, she is ski touring, skiing with friends and other instructors, or testing next year’s skis as a part of The Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Magazine’s ski testing team. Chloe teaches in English and in Spanish and holds her BASI Level 3, ISIA ski qualification.
Why did you choose to teach skiing?
I chose to teach skiing because I love skiing and being in the mountains. I grew up in the mountains both in winter and summer, skiing, cycling and hiking. I love being able to share my passion with others and watch them progress and fall in love with the sport. Once you start skiing you will love it forever.
What do you do in the summer?
For the past three summers I have worked in Mt Buller, Australia. In Australia, I teach a range of ages and abilities, and also have a group of 8 kids on a seasonal development programme who I teach for the whole winter, which I really enjoy. In between Zermatt and Australia, I have a few weeks to visit family and friends in the UK and the rest of the world.
Why did you choose Zermatt?
Zermatt is a very special ski resort that takes everyone’s breath away. The skiing is fantastic, the scenery is mesmerising, the village is beautiful and the whole resort has a magical charm. The weather in Zermatt is brilliant, and there are plenty of amazing restaurants, bars and spas to relax in after a day’s skiing. To top it off, we have the Matterhorn, and even after 3 years I can still never have enough photos of it.
