About Summit


Lieve Jacobs

As many of us I have been skiing every winter since I was a little kid and fell in love with the sport instantly. Therefore after I finished my bachelor’s degree in medicine, I decided to take some time off studying and become something I quite always wanted to be: a ski instructor.

A fun fact is that before I became a ski instructor I never had a single ski lesson in my life. My parents taught me how to ski themselves and they actually did a pretty good job! Where I’m from we have no mountains or snow, so moving to the Alps was necessary and I am really happy that I can call Zermatt my home this winter. It truly is a ski paradise and I am very excited to explore it with you.

From: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Teaching Since: 2022

I love to travel!

My Zermatt insider tip is:

Go skiing when it’s snowing and most other people are staying inside. Good snow, no lift lines and absolute silence on the mountain.

If I wasn't a Summit instructor:

I’d be a medical intern in the Amsterdam hospitals right now.

3 reasons to ski with me:

1. Even though my hands are always cold I am very happy to take my gloves off to shoot some cool Matterhorn ski pictures of you

2. One of the things I find most important while skiing is safety on the mountain and being mindful of other people. Plus, since I’m a medical student I know what to do in case of an unlikely emergency 😉

3. I used to be a gymnast so if there is one thing I understand is that learning new skills can be very tricky and that it usually takes some time. In skiing this is no different! With patience, encouragement and realistic goals we’ll have the most fun making you a better skier.
