Cristiano Chichizola, or “Kikki”, was born in Genoa, where the sea touches the Alps. He enjoyed his first snow footsteps as a baby and later fell in love with the mountains. His passion for skiing pushed him to first become a ski racer and later a coach and top qualified instructor. He relishes the chance to use his knowledge to improve other people’s skiing ability.
He teaches in English, Italian and French and is a Swiss Patente, teaching skiing, telemark and also off-piste.
Kikki’s clients say:“We all had a great time and everyone’s skiing has improved a lot! Enjoy the rest of the season and hopefully see you all again next year!”
What do you do during the summer?
I work as a life guard and swimming coach on my local beach.
Why did you decide to teach snowsports?
I decided to become a ski instructor when I was very young when I fell in love with the sport and the Alps! Breathing fresh air, improving my own skills and my clients’ skills is always my goal. Thanks to my passion I teach every season like my first one!
