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. Kikki worked with everyone to their ability. My son loved the last lesson when he went off skiing on the other runs with the instructor”.
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 me first one!
