I started skiing at the age of three on the slopes of Lech, Austria, and continued skiing through school and racing at university. I have now been in Zermatt for 18 years, and love it just as much as I did when I first arrived. I am fully qualified in the Swiss system (BBT), BASI (ISTD) and also the Austrian ski instructor system (Diplomskilehrer)

Absolutely loved our skiing experience with Rowena. She was very friendly and experienced and we felt our skiing improved dramatically over the week with her guidance

Can’t fault Rowena’s tuition for my twelve year-old. Two lessons and he went from a rusty pizza-turner to confidence in parallel turns and even jumps. She even helped out when he needed a break and a drink. Clearly Rowena is a very experienced instructor, and I would recommend her for adults as well as children.

Had a great three days honing technique when the off piste wouldn’t play ball, even managed a box-tick route off Rote Nase that was sketchy but new skills dealt with.

Rowena was absolutely amazing - gave me so much confidence (even got rid of my fear of skiing on icy sections!). She knew exactly the points that I needed to work on so we focussed on a lot of different ways to work on this. I now have the confidence to go away and continue practicing the points she covered so that I can continue building on my abilities.

Rowena was a fantastic ski instructor and we cannot recommend her enough! By the end of our 3 lessons with Rowena, our group of 4 very cautious and fearful skiers were tackling the slopes confidently by ourselves at a level we didn't think was possible to achieve in our short vacation to Zermatt! Rowena was very positive, attentive and made sure to help us all individually. Rowena also gave a us great technical feedback so we would continue to progress as much as we could during our lessons. We are currently planning our next trip back to the Zermatt and look forward to inquiring about more lessons with Rownena!

Rowena spent 3 hours with us and I now ski better than I have for 10 years. She explained the technicalities of using the skis and your own body position so well I am now skiing runs I would have been very weary of previously. The lesson was so enjoyable due to Rowena’s friendly manner. Highly recommended.

Rowena really was fantastic at helping me 'find my legs' again after a few years away from skiing. She made me feel so comfortable straight away and listened to my concerns and really helped me to address them from the get go. After a morning lesson with her on the first day I can honestly day for the rest of the trip, I did my best skiing and so much of that is down to Rowena giving me the time and confidence to get back into the swing of things. I would absolutely book again with her and start my next holiday off right! Thank youuuu :) xx

We had a great lesson with Rowena. She not only gave us valuable technical feedback to improve our skiing, but also took us to great slopes in Zermatt and provided good input on wherr to go on the town. Recommended!

We had an amazing 2 days of skiing with Rowena. We are good skiers but wanted someone to help us explore the best parts of Zermatt. She was friendly, skilled yet cautious and delivered exactly what we were looking for. I would have no hesitation recommending her.

The best instructor I have ever met - technical, patient and experienced (to tell me to stop when I look tired). Rowena is super attentive and caring. She is def the reason I go back to Zermatt ever year! Thank you

We first met Rowena several ears ago ( when she was a young girl) on a recommendation from a ski resort manager. Every year since then my wife and I have had a days personal tuition with her and our skiing has improved significantly. Unlike Rowena we started skiing late in life and her tuition has given us confidence to ski on all slopes, in all types of snow and all conditions. We will continue to have a lesson every year when Covid permits

We have know Rowena for over twenty years, and she looked after us most winters. She is often the sanest person in the group and is always great to have around.
