How did you end up in Verbier?
Luck and chance really, Ben a friend I worked with in New Zealand told me about Performance ski school. He had just done his first season with them and couldn’t have spoken about them with higher regard. He knew they were looking for Instructors and suggested I apply, I managed to snag a Skype interview with the guys and the rest is history.

Vinabagnes terrace for an after ski chouffe in the sun is a hard spot to beat. Best place in town for Verbier people watching.

Bruson trees on a powder day, but also very partial to some Tortin action if the bumps are big.

Best thing you have ever done?
Went to school to become a ski instructor seven years ago (Yep, you can do that in Sweden). That’s has led me to have a lot of fun and do some very cool things.
What is your top teaching tip?
Focus on your downhill/outside ski, always stand on it. And don’t forget to have loads of fun when you ski.
If you have to pick one slope to ski for a whole day?
Piste de l’ours, it’s a long and wide run were you can go crazy fast if you have the run to yourself
On the mountain Le Dahu, best pizzas around and in town Le Caveau were you can have a great fondue.
Best place for drinks?
I like to go to the Pub Mont Fort for a couple of drinks after skiing and then head down to vina bagnes where they have a great selection of wine both on glass and bottle.
One thing you cant miss when in Verbier?
Go paragliding! It’s an incredible experience were you get views you normally don’t get on the mountain.
Thank you Linnea, hope you have a great season!
