A bit about Gareth:

Verbier and Gareth go a long way back.

After spending seasons and gaining qualifications in America, New Zealand and Australia he was offered a job in Verbier in 2005 and has been here ever since, recently enrolling onto the Swiss system.

Don’t be fooled by his young looks….. he is an experienced instructor and also has 8 years working for Virgin, managing The Lodge in Verbier under his belt, so he’s sure to be able to get the best seat in the restaurant for you.

As a PADI-Divemaster, when he is not skiing he will be found in a nice sunny place wearing a wetsuit enjoying the underwater world; trail running with his dog Pebbles (no, not in the wetsuit that would be stupid); as a keen cyclist, you may find him cycling one of the amazing Cols around Verbier, or on the Downhill tracks; or watching the Welsh play Rugby.

Born in Guernsey he support Wales in rugby, to him it makes sense but I’m not sure.
