Steve has shared the joy of sliding on snow on alpine, cross-country, and telemark skis for over 40 years in the Western US and now in the Alps. He meets each client where they are and helps them learn and grow by guiding them beyond their comfort zone.
“Steve is a saint to put up with our family- incredible teacher- made our vacation.” Lisa, Washington D.C. area, MD
“Steve was excellent! He transformed our 16 year-old son’s skiing. Thanks!” Anne, Grand Rapids, MI
Why did you choose to teach snowsports?
Teaching snowsports is the best way I know to combine two of my passions: Skiing, and helping others sort out exactly what they want and then get it.
What makes you special as an instructor?
I work with you to find an idea, concept, or experience that helps you realize your goals and desires. I know I’ve succeeded when I see the smile on your face, the joy in your movements, and the glint in your eyes.
What do you do in the summers?
I love to road, gravel, and mountain bike, hike in the Alps, swim in Lake Geneva (when it’s hot), and travel to new places to do all of the above!
Where is your favourite part of your resort to ski/ride?
Bruson when it has snowed, Savoleyres for cruising, and Gentianes to Tortin when the coverage is good and the bumps are soft.
What is your favorite restaurant/mountain restaurant in Verbier?
Le Dahu u or Namasté for lunch, Chez Dany for aprés.
Why did you choose Verbier?
The diversity of terrain, the views, the wonderful ES family, and the easy access from Geneva by train or car.
What top handy tip do you have for anyone visiting Verbier?
Park in La Châble and take the cable car – it’s much easier than having a car in Verbier. Stay in La Châble for more of Swiss Mountain Village experience versus a resort experience.
