Interview with Tug Wilson

Home / Verbier Instructor Interviews / Interview with Tug Wilson

* Why do you choose to teach snowsports?
AFTER SERVING OVER 30 YEARS IN THE ROYAL NAVY I THOUGHT MY WEALTH OF INSTRUCTIONAL AND ORGANISATIONAL KNOWLEDGE COULD BE USED TO TEACH A SPORT I LOVE.
* What do you do in the summer?
I BUILD GARDENS, THE HARD LANDSCAPING APSECTS, THAT AN EX ROYAL NAVY FRIEND DESIGNS. I WORK OUTDOORS ALL YEAR ROUND AND HATE BEING INDOORS.
* Favourite part of Verbier/Zermatt to ski/ride
THE TREE LINED OFF PISTE ASPECTS OF SAVOLEYRES ON A QUIET MORNING AFTER A DECENT DUMP OF FRESH POWDER.
* Favourite restaurant or mountain restaurant in Verbier/Zermatt
THE ROSTBIF IN LE CHABLE WATCHING THE SIX NATIONS RUGBY WITH A PINT OF BITTER AND A FEW FRIENDS.
* Why did you choose Verbier/Zermatt?
GREAT LOCATION, EASY TO GET TO WITH A WHOLE LOAD OF RUNS OF VARYING DEGREES OF DIFFICULTY TO SUIT ALL SKIERS.
* What’s your top handy hint for anyone visiting Verbier/Zermatt
BOOK A LESSON WITH ES JUST TO REFRESH YOUR MEMORY AND YOUR SKI LEGS. TRY A GROUP LESSON IF YOU ARE A COUPLE OR ON YOUR OWN TO MEET NEW LIKE MINDED PEOPLE – WHO KNOWS WHERE THIS MAY TAKE YOU. LIFE IS NOT A DRESS REHEARSAL.
