Why did you choose to teach snowsports?
I chose to teach snow sports because I love teaching sports and seeing the progress of the students and the joy they receive from this. I come from Scandinavia and grew up skiing every winter, so being in the snow and the mountains is my natural habitat!
What makes you special as an instructor?
I think what I personally bring to instructing, which may be different than other instructors, is that I value the psychological part of learning highly. I use the knowledge I have from my bachelor in psychology to not only work with the body, but connect the body to the mind.
What do you do in the summers?
In the summers I work as a surf instructor, when I am not studying psychology.
Why did you choose Zermatt?
I chose Zermatt because of the beautiful views, the many kilometers of slopes, the cozy village and the perfect snow!
