Why did you choose to teach snowsports?
I chose to teach snowsports as I love to share my passion of sport and the outdoors with other people. I love seeing people make progress in sport and help them to enjoy the mountains with their family and friends.
What makes you special as an instructor?
I specifically tailor each lesson to your needs making sure you get the most out of the lesson and never have the same experience. I have an extensive knowledge of the mechanics of skiing and can explain it to anyone in a way that is simple and easy to understand.
What do you do in the summers?
I run my Videography and Photography business creating video and photo content for various businesses and individuals. I am based in Verbier but travel all over the world for work.
Where is your favourite part of your resort to ski/ride?
Mont Gelé is my favorite place to ski in Verbier. It is a perfect pyramid of freeride heaven high up in the alpines of the resort and is well known all over the world for excellent snow, amazing terrain and endless possibilities of routes down the mountain.
What is your favorite restaurant/mountain restaurant in Verbier?
On the mountain my favorite restaurant is Le Carrefour and specifically the fan favorite ‘Rosti Creblet’. Down in town you cannot go wrong with a traditional Swiss meal of fondue or raclette at Le Caveau.
Why did you choose Verbier?
I Chose Verbier as it’s a resort that has something for everyone. There is amazing skiing, many great bars and restaurants and lots of other activities for non skiers too. It is well known as on of the best ski resorts in Europe and it certainly lives up to that.
What top handy tip do you have for anyone visiting Verbier?
I would recommend trying to head to some of the quieter areas of the 4 Valleys. Verbier is part of Switzerland’s largest ski area and there are many beautiful areas that many of the tourists don’t know about.
