Lisa Heimerl

Lisa Heimerl - ski instructor in Zermatt
Lisa started skiing at the age of three and has loved the sport since then. Growing up in the Bavarian Alps she was lucky enough to live only a few minutes away from the slopes, where she trained and raced with her local ski club. Eventually she started working there as a coach, sharing her passion for skiing with the local kids.

After graduating from University she decided to become a full time ski instructor, which led her to different resorts in Switzerland before she came to Zermatt – where she’ll most likely stay.

Whenever she is not teaching, you’ll see her in the snowpark or on the slopes filming with her fellow instructors for ES social media. If you’re skiing with her you always have your personal photographer with you, helping you find the best photo spots on the mountain or creating a video for you to remember your skiing holiday in Zermatt.

Lisa teaches in English, German and Spanish.

Why did you pick Zermatt?

    Lisa was our instructor over Christmas 2022. She was really patient, kind and helped us improve while enjoying our skiing. We had a lot of fun with her. She knew the best runs and the good restaurants. Best bit was skiing the glacier and the ski down from the train drop off. Thanks Lisa, see you next time. Karen and Molly xx
