About Summit


Lisa Gällstad

I first grew my love affair for skiing in Les 3 Vallés where I went from skiing in between my dads skis to being dragged to french ski school to touring up some of my favourite routes.

As I finished school, I knew I wanted to grab my skis and head to the mountains for my first season (which was then delayed due to covid) but finally, here I am, in beautiful Zermatt continuing my love affair by working for Summit.

My favourite aspect of teaching is seeing people give their all and making that effort to always push for more. No matter what level of a skier you are, there will always be space for improvement.

In the summer

In the summers you’ll find me in the south of Sweden either biking around in my clogs, having ocean dips, eating strawberries or busting tables at the local restaurant in the harbour.

My Zermatt insider tip is:
Head over to Cervo for some après Aperols.
If I wasn't a Summit instructor:

I’d live out on the beaches of Costa Rica and surf from sunrise to sunset.

3 reasons to ski with me:

1. You choose, I’ll listen. Your lesson is your choice and you have the luxury to design it however you want. If that is getting down that black run or going from that plough into parallel or getting to that lunch spot, you tell me and I’ll get you there.

2. You smile, I smile. Your happiness will be my number one priority. Skiing is supposed to be fun and exciting (doesn’t mean it won’t be hard) but I’ll be there to cheer you on every step of the way.

3. You pose, I’ll shoot. I love catching moments with a picture so if you ever want to stop for a little photo shoot, you’ve come to the right place.
