Before settling in Zermatt in 2011 Phoebe followed the snow with back to back seasons teaching in Italy, Argentina , New Zealand and Switzerland. Having fallen in love with Zermatt she now lives here year round. This summer Phoebe spent her time focusing on her new love of climbing and managed to conquer several of the surrounding 4000m peaks.
This will be Phoebe’s twelfth season teaching and sixth here in Zermatt.
3 reasons to ski with Phoebe:
1. I have travelled the world throughout my skiing career and have therefore practised various different teaching styles. I am confidently able to tailor my lessons to suit my clients’ needs, rather than applying a ‘one lesson suits all’ approach.
2. I can teach in English and Spanish.
3. Summit’s team is full of incredible instructors, but in all honesty, I’m the best. Pick me.
Phoebe is quite possibly the best instructor I’ve ever had. and given that i’ve been an adult learner for roughly the last 8 years on and off that is quite a statement! She was punctual, friendly, and easy to talk to – the things some take for granted.
But on top of this she was great at picking up on my ability level within the first 20 mins of lesson one, and then pushing me enough to build my confidence, without scaring me. Following the solid foundations of 2 mornings with Phoebe I went on to ski the majority of the Zermatt ski area, including a very long moguled red over by the glacier!
In two 3 hour sessions Phoebe achieved what so many before her did not – she made me believe that I am capable of skiing confidently and proficiently. I have never enjoyed any of my lessons as much as I enjoyed the 2 I had with her.
So THANK YOU PHOEBE!!
I was SO impressed with Phoebe, but in short – punctual, professional, easy to spend time with. but most importantly an incredible instiller of confidence. I’m sat in London DREAMING about the slopes after my lessons with her, and I used to HATE skiing.
