What motivates you to get on your skis?

A lot off things. The main thing is just being out in the mountains, and being in the moment from turn to turn. Another major motivation is the that you always can keep evolving. I know I am so far away from perfection and world class, and even though I know I will never get there it keeps me motivated.

I get to set a spark and keep the fire going in so many highly motivated and competent individuals. I like the process and the collaboration with my students to make them better skiers and instructors. I especially like the work I do when we are not in exam situations. Then we have time and no stress to work on the details that make each individual better skiers.

I always strive to improve my skiing and teaching skills, and I feel like I can connect a lot of the knowledge gained at university to what we do on the hill as ski instructors. I like to ski with other people who share a passion for the sport, and that’s a big part of my motivation to work as a coach and instructor.

I love skiing, and almost everything in my life has revolved around skiing for the past ten years.

What do you do after winter?

I play with my daughter, ride my bike and think about skiing 😉

Highlights from last season:

Last season my business partner Mads was the mentor, and I focused on SkiLab clients. But this year I’m also mentoring so I’m looking forward to another winter of training and helping our students work hard towards their exams.
