Hi! I am Martina, I grew up in Slovakia where my parents own a ski school, so skiing has always been a part of my life.
It started as a free time activity learned in my backyard, then I continued between the gates, and although I decided to stop racing, I did not want to give up skiing. In 2013, I took a ski instructor level 1 course, and I didn’t know it would affect my future so much. Already after the first season I realized that it is much more than a chance to do what I like. I learned something new with each lesson, and I wanted to pass it on. One season a year wasn’t enough and I decided to fly to Australia in summer and teach to ski there as well. As I reached my full education, I started to participate in the work of the Slovak Ski Association as a trainer and transfer my experience to the future instructors. Besides skiing I graduated in Physiotherapy. My knowledge of the human body and biomechanics is a great asset in my ski instructing.
I enjoy every single moment out there on the snow and I want to show you the same. It doesn't matter if your goal is to learn to stop, move up a level, or regain lost confidence. I will do everything for you to have an unforgettable experience so you can't wait to get back on the skis again.
I am already excited to go down the slope together!
