Chloe Nicholls is the Co-Director here in Zermatt. She has been skiing from a young age and first learned on holiday with her family. She has many happy memories of skiing with her family and hopes to help others make happy memories of their own in Zermatt.
After graduating from University, Chloe followed her passion for skiing and being in the mountains and trained as a ski instructor. Chloe has taught in the UK, Italy and Australia, and has been in Zermatt for the past 8 winters. She knows all of the best slopes in Zermatt and Cervinia, and all of the extras to make your holiday special.
Why did you choose to teach skiing?
I chose to teach skiing because I love skiing and being in the mountains. I grew up in the mountains both in winter and summer, skiing, cycling and hiking. I love being able to share my passion with others and watch them progress and fall in love with the sport. Once you start skiing you will love it forever.
What do you do in the summer?
For four years I travelled between Zermatt and Mt Buller Resort in Australia, chasing the winters in each hemisphere. For the past four years I have lived in Zermatt year-round, which I love. Summer in Zermatt is almost as amazing as winter – I spend my days hiking, road cycling, mountain biking, climbing, and much more. I would highly recommend a trip to Zermatt in the summer as well as winter.
Why did you choose Zermatt?
Zermatt is a very special ski resort that takes everyone’s breath away. The skiing is fantastic, the scenery is mesmerising, the village is beautiful and the whole resort has a magical charm. The weather in Zermatt is brilliant, and there are plenty of amazing restaurants, bars and spas to relax in after a day’s skiing. To top it off, we have the Matterhorn, and even after 8 years I can still never have enough photos of it.
