Sam feels most at home when he’s in the mountains. Sun or snow he’s good to go. Winter time brings him to Zermatt for his fourth consecutive season here. During summer, Sam swaps the Skis for a Bike to work in the French Alps as a Cycle Guide.
Sam is a fun loving, easy going person. His passion for skiing will transpire into his teaching.
Paul is amazing. The lessons were really informative and helpful. I made significant progress during the three days and my friends were impressed by how much I learned.
My daughters had 3 mornings with Faye and she was excellent. The girls really liked her and they both made major improvements in their skiing.
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.
We had an incredible unforgettable holiday thanks to Paul. He is a fantastic instructor who made it possible for us to be able to ski in places and on slopes we would have only dreamed about before.
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
Martin was and excellent instructor who bot improved my skiing and made it a fab experience.
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.
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:
- 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.
- He knew the ski area and where it was appropriate to go in variable conditions inside out.
- 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.
- 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!
A great guy who is a great instructor and supplies sweets to his clients !! Very punctual top guy
Jamie was fun. He was very understanding towards me as I was a very unsure skier.
Thank you Jamie
