Ski Instructor, Verbier

My Story

Having been skiing since the age of four, my passion for skiing has lead to me becoming a ski instructor. The coming season will be my sixth with New Generation, having completed two in Courchevel training and this season will be my fourth returning to Verbier, and now feels like my second home. I like Verbier’s challenging off-piste and hikes, but my favourite ski run is Lac De Veux black because it’s steep and narrow but I also love to escape to Bruson! And when I’m feeling hungry I head to The Shed Burger restaurant as I am a big burger lover!

During my summers I coach tennis from the ages 4-16, and I am qualified through LTA.  Skiing is a big part of my life and I hope to see you on the slopes of Verbier!


Because of my tennis qualification i get on really well with kids and enjoying teaching them, but thrive in teaching all abilities and ages of people to ski!
