I was born in 1986, on 25 March and I grew up between Florence and Abetone, which is a little town in the mountains of Tuscany where I learned to ski. When I was 3, my father took me on snow for the first time, and since then, I’ve followed that passion. I became ski instructor in 2007 and I worked at Pinzolo in Trentino Alto Adige for three seasons, at Whistler Blackcomb in Canada for two seasons and Abetone for 3 years.
I spent my best experience in Canada at WhistlerBlackcomb. I was there for two winter seasons and I worked as ski instructor with a lot of kids. I moved to Canada for two reasons. Firstly because I was looking for a lot of powder and because Whistler has one of the best snowparks in the world. The second reason was because I was tired of teaching in Italy and I needed to improve my English. I found very good people and a beautiful ski school with a lot of programs for kids, where I worked.
I like summer and usually, during the weekend, I like to go to the beach with friends because it is close to Florence. I like to surf but, in Tuscany, it’s hard to find good conditions.
Something we don’t know about you
I’m a juggler, seriously!!!! I’m able to keep five balls or plates in the air at once. During the summer there is a little party at Abetone and every year I arrange a little show for some kids in that small town. Usually there are just five kids but it’s funny because every year I try to pull some new trick!!
- Italian Ski Instructor
- I graduated in Genetic Biology in 2012 at “Università degli studi di Firenze”
- Before that I got a degree in 2006 at “ Scuole Pie Fiorentine Liceo Scientifico”
I love teaching skiing at all levels.
For people who want to learn to ski and for expert skiers the first thing is security. A ski helmet is an important part of it. Ski helmets should not be considered as an accessory but a necessity and I think that we have to set an example first, as ski instructors.
Fancy a private lesson with Niccolò on your next holiday?
