About Summit


James Cunningham

I originally fell in love with skiing as a little kid in Austria, trying to see how fast I could go, much to the dismay of my parents. I then learnt what a turn was and haven’t looked back!

I finished university last year, and decided to pursue my dream of living in the mountains and teaching people the best sport in the world!


BASI Level 2





From: Maghera, Northern Ireland

Teaching Since: 2022

In the summer

You’ll find me down under, chasing the snow to Australia or New Zealand to teach skiing some more.

My Zermatt insider tip is:

Come to Manud on Tuesday when they have open mic night – You might even see an instructor or two sing…

If I wasn't a Summit instructor:

Canada Goose model

3 reasons to ski with me:

1. You decide! We can tailor the lesson in order to achieve your goals while having the most fun.

2. If those goals include going to the best aprés ski, I can point you in the right direction.

3. I love some one-ski skiing so if you’re up for a challenge we can give it a go!
