About Summit


Erika Lyhne Haslund

Despite growing up and living in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark, I come from an active family who loves the outdoors, whether it’s skiing or hiking.

I have skied my entire life, both in southern Europe and in Scandinavia. From an early age I looked up to my ski instructors and dreamt of one day becoming one myself. Last year that dream became reality, I left Copenhagen to share my deep passion for skiing in Austria.

It turned out to be the most amazing time of my life; There’s an incomparable joy in sharing the excitement that skiing brings me. This year I’m here in Zermatt to do what I love; teach, ski and pass on my love for the sport!

In the summer

Hiking, climbing, spending time in my family’s cabin in Sweden and of course enjoying the sun.

My Zermatt insider tip is:
Ski the yellow runs, best runs in the resort and there’s no one on them.
If I wasn't a Summit instructor:
If I were to invest my time and energy in another activity, it would properly be attending university. I really want to study medicine in the future.
3 reasons to ski with me:

1. It’s gonna be fun. When it’s fun learning, you learn 1000 times more!

2. Feel free to ask any questions; there’s no such thing as a silly one with me.

3. I love every minute on the mountain, whether it’s drinking a hot chocolate or on the skis. We can do both.
