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!

Heidi was fantastic. I will definitely ski with her again next year.

Judy went out if her way to please when the Matterhorn Paradise lift closed unexpectedly and extended our lesson by an hour at the other end!!

Heather

He was really good for me ( a tried to get me to push myself a bit) I ski with a group more for company than to improve my skiing.

Absolutely loved Emma!

Luca was the best ski instructor I have ever had across many years and in many ski schools and resorts. He combines a friendly and relaxed attitude with total professionalism and excellent knowledge of the mountains. I was very impressed in particular with the following aspects:

  1. He was able to instantly spot the problems with my technique and address them very quickly through both appropriate explanation and series of progressive exercises to change my bad habits.
  2. He knew the ski area and where it was appropriate to go in variable conditions inside out.
  3. On top of the practical knowledge of skiing technique he was very keen to pass on knowledge about appropriate safety in terms of off piste skiing (appropriate equipment, snow pack analysis, theory of how avalanches occur and what to be aware of at different times of year, training on using transceiver): i really like this mix.
  4. He has very good balance of friendliness and being encouraging and serious professionalism

I also was really impressed and would want to learn from Luca's combination of a clear love of the mountains and skiing and a keen awareness of the importance of appropriate safety precautions and risk management in terms of off piste and back country skiing.

If I am ever in Zermatt again whether alone or with family or friends I will be sure to get lessons (off piste if possible) with Luca again. I was very, very happy with my lessons in terms of the progress I made and enjoyable experience. I will definitely recommend him to any friends looking for lessons in Zermatt.

I think Summit should be extremely happy to have Luca as an instructor. I think he is an excellent and valuable member of your team (and I say that having had the benefit of lessons with other very good Summit instructors in the past, but Luca stands out in positive way even compared to them in my view). Many thanks Luca!

Hi I would just like to say a big thank you to Reed for his help on Saturday! He made it very easy learn teaching me the basics and getting me down the mountain! I was more than impressed with the quality of the 3 hours and came away at a level far more than I thought I would have. He was very easy going thanks again.

Ash was fantastic with my disabled son Oliver and made us as parents feel totally relaxed and confident of his experience and abilities with the sit-ski. He was very attentive to Oliver's enjoyment of the session at all times.

I felt we all made some good progress with our skiing this year. From experience we know the groups are always small. This year there was just the 3 of us (our family), so it was just like a private lesson

David

Without doubt the best lesson we have ever had in 20 years + of lessons for meeting our specified objectives. Thank you!

3 reasons to ski with Joe

1
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.

2
I am influenced by all types of skiing from racing to park skiing, so whatever your interests I can tailor a lesson for you.

3
I’ve got bags of patience and a smile on my face!
