My Dad introduced me to the mountains aged two by skiing around with me in his backpack! Soon after I strapped on my own skis and I have been hooked ever since.
I competed nationally in ski racing growing up and I always dreamed of spending entire seasons in the mountains. I have taught in Japan and in New Zealand while at university (where my goggle tan provided much amusement). I recently completed my Masters in Medieval History and immediately jetted back to New Zealand, before arriving in Zermatt.
In my free time, you’ll find me in the park where I’m trying to combine my two favourite sports – skiing and gymnastics. I love to travel and I’m always excited to share (slightly niche/weird) Medieval History facts and stories – so I can guarantee some very original chairlift chat!
My instructor was very friendly and patient. She taught me to work on something specific despite being part of a group lesson, which I found very helpful. Paul was very informative and helpful and answered my e-mail enquires quickly.
Thank you for such a wonderful time! We truly had fun skiing with you the past week.
I am particularly grateful to Hannah for having recommended Faye to be my granddaughter, Nina's, instructor. Nina had had a bad experience with another ski school in Zermatt and Faye's friendly, gentle professionalism helped put Nina back on the right track!
The person we spoke to made was careful to understand our skiing level and what we were looking for, so we ended up with an instructor who was appropriate to our needs.
Thank you for all the help when booking, it was made very easy with the email correspondence and flexibility with booking and times etc.
Nikola, your receptionist with whom I dealt both via. e-mail & in resort was fantastic. Very helpful in explaining our options and helping us get the best out of our booking during the week when it was necessary to be flexible because of the conditions.

Enthusiastic, imaginative, fun! I enjoy thinking outside the box – it’s not only about the technical side with me.
I love tackling the psychological challenges of skiing. If you’re looking for an encouraging and patient instructor then pick me.
