Jack Harris has loved the mountains for longer than he can remember!
Ever since his first holiday in France at four years old he has completely in love with snow and the beauty of the mountains. Whilst skiing is his first love if there is no snow he will be off exploring either climbing, walking or just relaxing in amazing places.
He feels very lucky to spend most his life living in some of the world’s most beautiful places and wants to do it for as long as he possibly can!
Why did you choose to become a ski instructor?
I remember the name of one of my very first ski instructors when I was a little boy (Alberto) and he completely stuck with me as he was interesting and the most fun! I guess you could say I wanted to be just like him. I was inspired!
Where is your favourite part of Zermatt to ski?
I really like the itinerary runs of the top of Rothorn for its varied and challenging terrain. I like itinerary runs because each run is different to the last.
What do you do in the summer?
This summer I have spent in Australia teaching skiing in Perisher which has been great!
But most of my summer work has been taking people climbing, walking and all sorts of water sports in the English Lake District.
What is your favourite restaurant in Zermatt?
My favourite on hill restaurant is Enzian it’s a nice cosy restaurant in the beginners area so it is accessible.
What handy tip do you have for anyone visiting Zermatt?
Avoid the self-service restaurants for your coffee breaks as they can very busy and instead go and find some of the small independent gems around the mountain.
