I started snowboarding at the age of 14 and fell in love with it on my first trip to Austria, So 5 years later, I decided to move to Canada where I trained to be an instructor. I love being in the mountains there is something so magical about it its a feeling I’m unable to find anywhere else.

In the summer:
Live in zermatt and summer is just as fast paced as winter, trying to cram in everything possible like, Snowboarding (of course) Hiking, Biking, Climbing…. Trying to tick of the summer sports list.
My Zermatt insider tip is:
If you are the kind of people who love a great spot for lunch in the mountains make sure you book a reservation nice and early to ensure you get a table as everywhere gets very busy, especially in peak times.
If I wasn't a Summit instructor:
A yoga and surf instructor in Bali
3 reasons to ski with me:
1. I know for people snowboarding can be a very scary thing for any ages or abilities, but I am a very calm patient person and will be with you every step of the way.
2. For me to be able to pass on my passion to others makes me super stoked. Especially watching clients develop within the sport, knowing you have helped them over come so much in such a short space of time.
3. I’m dual cert in snowboarding & après. I’m happy to sip on a chilled beer with you and show you some of Zermatt’s best apre spots,
