G'day, my name is Nick.
Since I was a young boy I was always dreaming of working full seasons in ski resorts as a ski-instructor. So after I finished my studies in Sportmanagement, I went straight to Austria to enjoy the mountains and fresh snow there. After a couple of years I got drawn to this wonderful land called Switzerland to first work in Saas-Fee and after that here in the amazing Davos-Klosters Mountains
I’m always drawn to the nature and outdoor sports. So when I’m not racing down the slopes or having fun off-piste skiing, you will see me in the mountains, hiking, mountain biking or surfing some waves. Back home in the Netherlands, where there are less mountains and waves, I mostly play tennis or push my limits in Crossfit boxing.
In between winter seasons I have also worked one season in Australia as a ski-instructor. The others years I was either travelling or coaching tennis back in my home town Gouda. Recently I have started working as a carpenter to get more all-rounded. On the side I’m doing a breath-coaching course to ultimately help others to get physically and mentally fitter for sports and life.
Together we will enjoy the stunning scenery of Davos-Klosters. Whether it is your first ski-experience, or you want to improve your technique, learn to ski powder or need a guide to show you the resort, I’m there to meet your goals and make the most out of your ski-holiday.
Let’s hit the slopes, see you soon!
