Why a ski instructor, ski guide or mountain guide?
Skiing has changed a lot over the last years. New skis, techniques and styles have appeared such as: functional turning technique, carving, freeriding, halfpipe etc. It doesn't matter if these terms don't mean a thing to you because I would like to help you find the right technique, the right gear and to show you how to handle it. It is worth while to check out the "new things". All new techniques have one thing in common, to experience skiing in a more enjoyable way and with more fun.
Not only the new techniques are trendy, even the old things find more followers. Telemark is the first ski technique which combines nostalgia with dynamic ski techniques. With the telemark technique only the toe part is fixed on the skis and the heels are lose, similar to cross country skiing. The balance can be found with a step position, going low down and sliding the bottom ski in front.
Besides the ski lessons I will try to help you to make your holiday as perfect as possible. The intensity of the lessons and terrain will be adapted to your demands and abilities. I have known Zermatt and Cervinia for many years and I know exactly:
• Which slopes are best for you
• Where the best snow is
• Where the most beautiful slopes are
• Where the nicest mountain restaurants are
• When to take which cable car to avoid queues
The endeavor of the ski instructor is to carry out the ski lessons in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere: you are on holiday and not in a class room. Your ski instructor will give you information on the slopes or in the huts about après ski, going out, restaurants, panorama, Zermatt, dinner in mountain restaurants etc. If you like your ski instructor will help you with your reservations during your stay in Zermatt.
