A bit about Laia:

Laia was born in a small village by the Catalan Pyrenees. She started skiing on the local hill at the age of four and she has loved skiing ever since. The passion for skiing has taken her around the snow world in countries such as New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, Japan, India and last but not least, Europe participating in the Freeride World Qualifier Tour, where she got a few important podiums. Looking at that background it was just a matter of time before she would end up in Verbier!
 
Laia is not all about the extreme skiing and jumping cliffs, another aspect that she loves is teaching people and make them fall in love with the sport just as she did, this winter will be her 20th season helping all levels and ages progress. 

In the off-season you can find her exploring the great outdoors around the world or coming up with new adventures hiking or biking in the Pyrenees or the Alps, she cant get enough of the mountains….
