I became a ski instructor in 2020 and have been teaching in Italy and France since. My favourite piste is Lac Blanc in Val Thorens. Favourite tip: If you are about to fall, don't fight it. Accept your sad, grim, dark fate. I'ts gonna happen anyway, so you might aswell take it like a champ. Jokes aside, snow is soft; relax and you won't feel a thing! My favourite thing about skiing is the tranquillity and silence; but hey, who am I kidding, if you ask me to get to the Folie Douce I love it just the same!

Hi, my name is Enrica. I’m an Italian ski instructor, I was born and raised in Piemonte. I learnt to ski at the age of 4 in a very small resort called Frabosa Soprana, where I also trained in the local ski club until I became a ski instructor. After that I felt much more freedom in exploring the mountains and enjoying skiing all over the world. Which brought me ultimately to Courchevel. My favorite slope over there is probably Biolley, it’s nice and wide and “hilly” and I can have fun carving it all out. My favorite tip is to keep the eyes up, and look at the direction you’re going. That also helps you enjoy the mountains and the nature around you, which is my favorite part of skiing.

I’m from a small town in the Italian Alps, very close to the border with Switzerland. I don’t remember when I started skiing, I just know that I always did it, I started with my dad in the ski resort close to home when I was 3. From the age of five I joined the local ski club and I’ve been racing till I was seventeen. After that I trained to be a ski instructor and in 2017 I was fully qualified to teach. I’m so happy to be in the 3 valleys and I love Courchevel, when I ski on my own I always like to go to the vizelle gondola, enjoy the view and ski down Saulire slope. Skiing it’s a part of me, I love the feeling that I have when I’m floating on the powder snow and when I’m carving on the slopes. But I also like to stop for a drink and appreciate the incredible landscape that I have around me. So make sure your boots are comfy, enjoy your days on the ski and try to make the best of it.

I grew up in the Italian Apennines, very close to a ski resort on the Gran Sasso Mountain range. I took up skiing at the age of 4 thanks to my parents who have always been into skiing. My first time skiing was with my father in 1987, we were on a steep icy slope behind the house, which now looks absolutely flat. Following on, I trained and gained experience in Alto Adige and had numerous competitive successes in central Italy. In 2005 I became a full certified Italian ski instructor and I have been teaching professionally ever since. I worked in the Italian Alps for ten years, predominantly in Sestriere. In 2012 I spent two summers in the Southern Hemisphere, Australia, where I worked as a ski instructor as well. In 2015 I moved to France where I started to work for British Ski Schools. In 2018 I have finally joined Supreme!!! FAVORITE PISTE IN RESORT There are so many good runs in Courchevel, my favorite one is actually a blue run from the top of Plantrey chairlift to La Tania where you can ski through the woods. It is quite a long run, the snow it is always good and it is never too busy. That is where I would normally head to first if we get a foggy day. TOP TIP Never forget that every expert was once a beginner. Dream big and start now! WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OF SKING First of all, being surrounded by mountains is just absolutely breath taking. Skiing itself, is a great feeling of freedom which feels like dancing to me. Finally, stepping inside a cozy rustic chalet at the end of a long day, drinking good wine and enjoying yummy food is also my favorite part of skiing.

I love everything about skiing especially the feeling of freedom and joy I get every time I have the chance of being between the mountains. Off piste and powder are what I love the most.

I was a racer before becoming an instructor, now I spend a lot of my time doing freeskiing and freestyle. My favorite piste in Meribel is La Face. The best advice I can give is to always take care of yourself and the other people when you’re on slopes. I love skiing in the deep snow, it feels like skiing on the clouds.

I come from Varese but since I finished high school I’ve been living in Bormio and still now I’m living there. One of the best places of Italian Alps. I started skiing in Bormio. I started skiing when I was 3 years old with my grandfather, and then he passed the baton to my father, who has been following me until the end of my racing path. I started racing in 2013 when I was 13, and I ended my career in 2022. I’ve been spending all these years travelling around the Alps and even more far away. One of the most comprehensive experience have been the University Games in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. I also had the privilege to grow up technically and emotionally and now that I quit racing I understand the reason why I’ve been racing for all these years. My favourite piste is Combe du Vallon. You won’t have a bad day until you are on snow. It can sound ordinary but the best part of skiing is the first run in the early morning, with the sound of crunchy snow under the feet and no people around you. It feels like doing yoga four the soul.

I had the luck of being born and raised in a tiny mountain village in the Alps surrounding Lake Como. Thanks to my family I have started skiing very early at 3 years old. At 7 years I’ve joined the Italian SkiClub, getting into some minor competitions. I’ve stayed for approx. 10 year when my desire was to become a ski instructor and in 2017 I’ve completed the course with AMSI. In 2017 I started working as a ski instructor in the nearby ski resort Piani Di Bobbio (LC). It is a small ski area with mostly easy slopes and so it’s the perfect place for beginners. As a teacher, I had the opportunity to gain experience for myself on how to teach from the very basics to intermediate levels. My first international experience was in France in the same year, at the Les Deux Alpes ski resort. Here I was part of the instructors’ team for the European Ski School whose customers where typically from US or UK, and for the following 3 winters I have normally worked there for 2 months during high season. This huge international ski-area is frequented by skiers of every level: my customers ranged from 2 to 4 years old kids till people perfectly able to nail a black slope

I started skiing in Italy, in Claviere, a small village in the alps. I competed in ski racing until I was 18 and then I got into ski mountaineering and freeriding to fully experience the mountains. In Val d'isére i like to ski down from La Face and in tignes i like to carve in the red slopes down from the 'La grande motte' glacier. The best tip I give to my clients is to separate the upper body from the lower body. When skiing I enjoy the days blessed by the mountains. In my spare time I like to read, listen to music, climb and plan my trips

I started skiing in Limone Piemonte. Started at 3 and a half, raced from 6 to 18, as soon as I could do I turned passion into work and became a ski instructor at 19. My favourite piste is Genepy. The best advice I give to my clients is to feel your skis as part of your body and not as tools.The best thing for me is skiing in the morning at sunrise when you hear nothing but your skies cutting the snow, that’s when you really connect with mountain. Just graduated in Physiotherapy and in love with outdoor sports. Willing to find a way of living life that allows me to do all the things I love, not gonna surrender!

I started skiing in Frabosa - Mondole Ski. I've been competing in Alpine skiing for 15 years. The Olympic run is my favourite and always fascinating. My favourite tip to give to clients is stay forward and look at me! My favourite part of skiing is the fresh air and the amizing feeling you get when skiing down a slope. I am a pharmacist but skiing is the best medicing for me.

Hetti grew up spending time between London and the New Forest. Her dad took her on a ski trip to the US when she was 9 and she's never looked back. Hetti is one of the most qualified instructors in Switzerland and holds the highest level of certification from France, Switzerland and Britain. She is equally at home carving up a storm on the pistes to tearing down tight coloirs on a powder day. She knows all the best places to ski (and eat!) and this is her 17th season teaching in Verbier. In the summer you can sometimes spot Hetti abseiling down houses in London where she runs a roofing and guttering business, or on her family farm caring for the highland cows and horses. Her love of champagne is legendary!
