About Summit


Liam O'Brien

I started skiing when I was 4 when my parents took me to the top of the hill and pushed me down the hill. Since then I’ve never looked back. After my gaining Bachelor’s degree in Science, I combined my love for teaching and skiing together and became a ski instructor in Thredbo, Australia.

Safe to say, the mountains here are a little bit bigger. I like to have fun and make sure that everyone is having a good time in my lessons



Qualified through

APSI (Australian Professional Snowsport Instructors)

In the summer

Keep skiing on the other side of the world! And go to the beach whenever I get the chance

My Zermatt insider tip is:

When it’s snowing, get out on the mountain. It’s quieter and lunch tastes 100 times better.

If I wasn't a Summit instructor:

Run a doughnut shop on the mountain, nothing better then a hot, fresh cinnamon doughnut.

3 reasons to ski with me:

1. I love seeing people have fun and progress, no matter the pace.

2. I have an endless supply of incredible dad jokes and puns.

3. I know how to make sure you get the most out of your holiday here in Zermatt.
