This is Tessa’s 3rd winter season in Verbier working as a ski instructor. She trained for and passed her exams here in Verbier so knows the mountain extremely well! Tessa loves all things outdoors and wellbeing, proven by her degree in Earth Sciences and current studies in Nutrition. Tessa is a relaxed teacher with a lot of patience who likes to keep it interesting by teaching all ages and abilities, as well as teaching lessons in other languages if she gets the chance!
Why did you choose to teach snowsports?
I chose to be a ski instructor as I fell in love with the feeling of being outdoors in the mountains all day everyday and the amazing people you get to meet along the way.
What makes you special as an instructor?
I really care about the wellbeing of my clients and carry out my lessons with a lot of patience and a complete lack of judgement.
What do you do in the summers?
My main goal is to surf and hike as much as possible! This last summer I travelled around Europe to surf before moving back to Verbier to work with the Verbier Festival Junior Orchestra.
