Alex fell in love with skiing and the mountains at age six; he then fell in love with teaching skiing at eighteen. Since then he has worked as an instructor in Austria, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and even the UK.
This will be the first season Alex has worked in Zermatt, but his 7th season in total. He is primarily an alpine ski instructor, but is also qualified in snowboarding and adaptive skiing.
Alex wants everyone to share his passion and enjoyment for skiing whatever their goals, be it cruising the blue slopes confidently, giggling across the pistes with friends, or ripping down a race stade.
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.
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!

I am a big kid at heart. I love having fun in the snow, whether that’s on skis or building the best snowman on the mountain.
I have the BEST jokes you’ve ever heard. Dad joke enthusiasts need look no further.
