Marc is a qualified instructor with a passion for teaching snowboarding, skiing and telemarking. He has 30 years of teaching and coaching experience gained in the US, UK and Verbier. Whether on the top the Mont Fort or the beginner hill, he enjoys sharing his love of snow sports with people of all ages and abilities.
What makes you special as an instructor?
I believe that snow sports are first and foremost about having fun.
Marc describes his teaching philosophy as holistic, combining body alignment, balance and breathwork to build confidence and ability. He supports his clients to increase their movement efficiency because “less work equals more fun”. He is proud to have coached his students to reach big and small goals, whether making the US snowboard team or skiing moguls for the first time.
What do you do in the summers?
In the summer you will find Marc in Verbier, paragliding and challenging his riding skills on the ever expanding mountain bike trail system. He is also an aspiring surfer despite the shortage of opportunities for this in a land locked country.
What is your favorite part to ski/ride?
Riding powder is Marc’s absolute favorite thing to do; “There is nothing better.”
Why did you choose this resort?
I was introduced to Verbier in 1998, and my mind was blown. This place is so big, with such great terrain and a very fun town. I used to teach at a small mountain in New York but I always knew I would end up in Verbier. This is where my heart is. I got married here, taught my kids to ski and snowboard here, and love sharing my passion and knowledge of this special corner of the world. Come for a ride with me! Let me show you my home and make you a better skier or boarder. I promise you, we will have fun!
