Originally from Prague, Czech Republic, Veronika’s family made the move to Vancouver, Canada in search of biggermountains to explore. In 2000 Veronika made Whistler home where she began as a ski instructor at the age of 18. Soon after she landed a job coaching for a guided, off-piste steep skiing programme. Finding a love for the backcountry, she began exploring and guiding in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres and made Verbier her home in 2010. She works as a bike guide in Europe during the summer months. Words she lives by: higher you climb the longer you get to ski!
