Erica has been in Zermatt since 2000, she is one of the directors and owners of Summit.
She is one of the few women to have completed the BASI Level 4, and also holds her Swiss Patent.
After a degree in pharmacology and spell in the city at Morgan Stanley Erica decided that life in the mountains was more suited to her. She is now just as busy as ever being Mum to two boys, running the school and teaching.
Our family of four all novice skiers had private lessons with Erica who was wonderfully patient and helpful. She had us all up and running in no time, by the end of day one we were on a blue and day two we explored a bit more of the mountain. Wonderful balanced attention to the variety of skill sets. Couldn't have been better and had a fantastic time. On our third day without Erica we tackled blue runs on Gornergrat which were awesome but my legs were tiring! Her instruction ringing in my ears made it much easier as I tried to slow my turns and catch my son flying down the mountain!
Thank you for such a wonderful time! We truly had fun skiing with you the past week.
I really want to thank you for all your hard work and patience. You have been a star and our daughter thinks the world of you. She has come on leaps and bounds and I am delighted. See you next year!!!
3 reasons to ski with Erica
I have lived in Zermatt since 2002 so know it pretty well now, and know a fair amount about skiing, ha ha. If you want to break down your technique we can do that, although I prefer to keep things simple rather than just throw in buzz words for the sake of it.
If you are nervous about progressing or getting back on the snow I have 2 kids so I have unending patience.
I’m calm and relaxed and love being in the mountains, so whether you are after a technical refresher, a blast around the yellow runs or a destination lunch, I would love to ski with you.
