Real skiing, the most thrilling and enjoyable one, is all about “carving”. But only 10% of all recreational skiers can actually carve a turn. So there is a lot of work for us, instructors, to help the other 90% experience those incredible feelings and sensations generated on the 100% edge locked “arc to arc” carved turns.

That’s what encourages me the most! To help skiers get to that level of enjoyment!

Skiing is definitely my passion, my way of living!”


See you on the slopes!

About Me…

I’m a Medical Doctor, Professional Ski Instructor/Coach and Bootfitter with more than 15 years of ski teaching experience, based in the wild Andean Patagonia (Argentina). I grew up skiing on a very small ski resort where the only run it had was very steep (black diamond) and rarely groomed at all.

Learning to ski on such a difficult terrain full of bumps, ruts and steepness was a big challenge, but it did pay off in the long run.
For me, learning to ski wasn’t easy at all. When I was starting, I took no lessons and it was basically self-taught. It took me a huge amount of time, effort (and obviously lots of crashes) to be able to ski the whole mountain with confidence and control.

That’s the main reason why, in the first place, I became a ski instructor later on. To try to facilitate the learning process of new skiers, helping this sport to grow more and more. ski instructor argentina

The key is that with quality instruction, particularly from the early stages, you can learn and improve your skiing way much faster, and way much safer. And that means enjoying your days in the mountain a lot more, from the beginning.

Even though the position and movements of the hips throughout the turn are a key aspect in high-level skiing, not many ski instructors teach to the hips often. I think that’s because it is a quite complex topic and not easy to understand and to get right. Actually,...
