Sarah Wilcock

I first arrived in Zermatt 10 years ago to complete my skiing exams. It’s a pretty special place, the kind that draws you back, and I was no exception as the following year I returned to work as a ski teacher.

I grew up in the Lake District and learnt to ski at the age of 8 on a family holiday to Switzerland. I feel so lucky to have been able to ski all over the world, including Canada, New Zealand and across Europe.

I decided to train to be a ski teacher after getting involved with Disability Snowsport UK, initially as a volunteer then later as an instructor.

Adaptive skiing is very close to my heart. I set up an adaptive program in a ski resort in Australia and am proud to have been involved with Summit Adaptive Program here in Zermatt.

My summer job for many years was as a Children’s Occupational Therapist, specialising with children with neurodevelopmental conditions such as Dsypraxia, Autism and ADHD.

I have recently qualified as a yoga teacher and plan to focus on that this summer.

In the summer
You can find me at the beach surfing and travelling around in my camper van. Having recently completed my 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training qualification, I will be spending my summer teaching yoga.
 
My Zermatt insider tip is:
On good weather days, take a trip to Italy. Great coffee, delicious pasta and miles and miles of fantastic skiing.
If I wasn't a Summit instructor:
My alternative dream job would be a stunt woman.
3 reasons to ski with me:

1. I have 10 winters of ski teaching experience and have taught a wide variety of people with different abilities and needs. I have bundles of patience but also love to shred the slopes.

2. I love skiing! I want to share my passion with visitors to Zermatt and ensure that they have an amazing holiday.

3. I know the best places for a delicious lunch and a lively après ski.
