Joe is an easy going, friendly instructor with a passion for the mountain environment and all that comes with it. Joe has skied since he can remember, travelling and working from Japan to New Zealand before discovering the beautiful mountains of Switzerland and falling in love.
In the summer months you can find him riding his mountain bike around the Cotswolds, climbing hills in Wales or simply relaxing in the sun.
Joe always rises to the challenge, relishing the chance to pass on the sport that he loves so, with an infectious grin that is bound to rub off on you!
We specifically chose summit because of your special needs program. Ash have managed to teach our autistic daughter in 3 days more than she learnt in 3 years. I think you need to advertise the program more as it is fantastic.
Emma is very friendly and make learning ski fun. She is the reason I returned to Zermatt twice in one season. My first ski lesson with Emma was in end of Dec / Jan 2017 (4 days) than returned in April 2017 and doing Red run with her was the greatest achievement I never thought possible.
Martin was good fun, chatty and made our daughters feel very relaxed. He changed their perception of ski instructors and they only want to be taught by him in future!
Dave always provides a superb lesson which just pushes me a little outside my comfort zone each time so that I finish with a feeling of great achievement.
Tom was absolutely amazing. He made our trip! He was so easy to be with. So fun. So thoughtful. So intelligent. We all agreed he was the best part of Zermatt. We went on to ski in Chamonix. And all we could talk about was how much we missed Tom! He is the best!!
Steve was the perfect choice for teaching Hamish and his Mum! He absolutely made the week for us in every possible way. Good sensible teaching, knowing how to pace us, extremely good fun and good company. Steve is a born teacher, very enthusiastic and calm in a 'mini' crisis! (Getting Mum down testing red run in whiteout conditions!). Hamish, after 15 yr break from skiing, progressed with Steve beyond all expectations. Do hope we can book him again in the future.
Henry is of course fab!
I just wanted to let you know that our family had an amazing experience with Dave. From the first minute, he grabbed Charlie's attention and got us moving. He took us step by step, starting with making sure our boots were on correctly(which they weren't). He kept the three of us moving and progressing with encouragement. I would have never imagined that we would have made as much progress as we had. By the end, Charlie was going up the ramp on his own and coming down by himself while my husband was skiing with Dave. We could not be more pleased with our whole experience and just wanted to make sure you know how great Dave was.
Tom was absolutely first class with the 4 children. We couldn't have asked for more in terms of flexibility, patience, enthusiasm and energy and the children loved his approach and learnt a lot. We very much hope to be back in 9 months and will be in touch and hope he will be available and happy to take the children on again!
3 reasons to ski with Joe
I truly believe there is a place for everyone on the mountain to ski and enjoy. In a lesson, I will devote myself to finding yours.
I am influenced by all types of skiing from racing to park skiing, so whatever your interests I can tailor a lesson for you.
I’ve got bags of patience and a smile on my face!
