Luke fell in love with skiing on a school trip when he was 14. Since then he has been a ski instructor in Canada,Australia and Japan. However his favourite resort is Verbier and he has done 9 seasons here teaching.

What do you do in the summers?

I live in Verbier full time and work in building and maintenance during the summer here.

Where is your favorite part of Verbier to ski/ride?

The piste de l`ours in Veysonnaz.  Or Mont gele for off piste

What is your favorite restaurant/mountain restaurant in Verbier?

Les Chottes in Veyonnaz is great.  It’s run by a local farmer.  They have an ice tunnel and a hot tub too.  In Verbier I love La Gouma – best pizza in town!

Why did you choose Verbier?

It has the best ski terrain around and an amazing local community.  Plus it’s nearly always sunny!

    Quite literally the best morning skiing I’ve ever had. Luke was professional and friendly. He made me feel comfortable from the get go. Only a 3 hour lesson but he was able to target my weaknesses early on and I was skiing like a pro by lunch time. I will be back!

    We had an absolute blast with Luke last week. From his vast knowledge of the mountain to his targeted exercises, he is one of the best instructors out there. Looking forward to skiing with him again already!

    Thanks Luke, my boys have thoroughly enjoyed your lessons this week. They have grown in confidence and made excellent progress with their skiing. A fabulous instructor.
