You can read more about Ben and Emmy below:
Ben’s love of the mountains started at an early age in Wales, before moving at 12 years old to the French Pyrenees. He then learnt to ski and joined the local race club whilst training to pass the French Test Technique. He continued ski racing throughout school until heading to University in Grenoble.
At University, Ben joined the University Ski Club, where he first found his love for teaching others. He also joined the Regional Mountaineering Team and spent most of his time ski touring, climbing and mountaineering.
Ben lived in Méribel his first season where he started training as a ski instructor. The past 3 seasons were spent working for ESF La Rosière. He is currently an ISIA qualified ski instructor, Level 1 snowboard instructor, and is working towards his ISTD.
Ben is passionate about life in the mountains and enjoys activities such as climbing, mountaineering, ski touring, snowboarding and kayaking. He also enjoys photography and travelling as much as he can alongside his summer projects of building traditional timber frame.
Emmy grew up skiing in Collet d’Allevard in the French Alps, where she started racing with the local ski club. Switching as a teenager to snowboarding, Emmy discovered the pleasure of going off piste in the powder, something she still enjoys to this day.
Starting as an assistant instructor in order to train for the Test Technique; she progressed rapidly and started teaching with the ESF in La Rosière in 2012. She has completed all of her skiing exams, achieving the full French certification; Diplôme d’Etat.
Now eager to ski in other countries, Emmy is particularly excited for the possibilities that Verbier has to offer for ski touring and the challenge of its steep and impressive slopes. She also likes to discover easily accessible, close by secret spots with good powder, and is looking forward to finding them in the 4 Vallées.
Emmy is active in the summer and loves to be outside, whether she is travelling, walking, wakeboarding, climbing, or taking photographs.
The AlpineMojo team look forward to skiing with you this winter!
