About me

Reaching the Peak

I took to the slopes of Zermatt for ski-racing at the age of four, now I have the highest Swiss and British ski instructors qualification and have been working as a ski instructor in Switzerland since 2011. I know where to go and how to get you there safely,considering your experience, ability and personal goals. Wishing to help my clients to recover from skiing, I started learning massage therapy. Now I am able to provide various types of massage (sport, deep tissue, trigger point, relaxation etc.). It is always a pleasure to see my clients fresh and rejuvenated every day, no matter how hard they trained the day before.

Furthermore, I have completed several personal training courses, which helped me to understand better biomechanics and the science of physical conditioning, focusing on skiers in particular. Now I am able to provide any programme both on the snow and in the gym.

Just finished skiing with Luca for 5 days with a friend. He has helped me no end with my carving. He has a great eye for detail and is very patient. I would highly recommend him. He also has a great sense of humour! I will definitely take lessons with him again. (28/11/18 Google)

Luca is a great instructor!!! Lessons were easy, fun and very effective, cannot believe that several days ago I had no idea how to ski, and now just after 4 days I’m on the red slopes. Luca, thank you for this great experience! (07/04/18 Google)

I really enjoyed my private lesson with Luca during my time in Zermatt. Luca was patient, thorough, and an overall talented instructor. Not only did I learn the fundamentals of skiing, but I also had a great time. Thanks for making the experience so fun, Luca! (05/12/17 Facebook)
