About

Besides getting to learn how to ski, or improve your skiing, would you like to know the best places on earth to ski? During my international career I skied on many mountains in many different conditions and in many countries and can give you all kinds of tips of where to travel to. Skiing is not just a sport; it is an grandiose adventure!  I was born in Germany but moved to Holland when I was 5. Then at 15 my family moved us all to Philadelphia so my accent is mainly Dutch with a little German :-)

Wanted to write a quick note from my experience with Guido yesterday. I signed my two boys up for lessons as this was their first experience with skiing. Guido was great! He was patient with them and gave excellent instruction. After our lesson, they applied what they learned on the slopes and had a tremendous time! Thanks, Guido!!

Beginner - 1 hour private ski lesson

As a first time skier, Guido was the best person I could’ve asked for as an instructor. His helpful tips and encouragement, my favorite of which was “more knee!” brought a smile to my face and encouraged me to improve myself. Guido took the time to get to know us each and focused on helping us with what we personally needed more help with. He was extremely knowledgeable and I had a wonderful first skiing experience with Guido. Thanks Guido you’re the best! We have one question though, what is your nationality? We are curious. Hope to see you again!!

Guido was very laid back and gave great simple explanations on how to ski. I improved greatly just from an hour of training.

Guido helped me become a better skier and go from snowpowing down blue squares to actually skiing down double black diamonds.

We were a family of 5 from Puerto Rico, trying to skiing for the first time (VERY Beginners). Two adults, and three kids (14,12 and 10 years old). We took a private lesson with Guido. He was very patient with us, specially with me, as I am nothing close to be agile. The class was very funny and step by step...from how to walk to how to ski down the hill with some curves and elevations. He managed the group very well and he taught us in a way that we felt like Professionals. The area in Blue mountain is well prepared for the learning experience and spacious. Even though the lesson time ended, he gave us an extra time to be sure that we learnt everything we needed to enjoy the day! The value of the class was well invested. Best day of our vacation time thanks to Guido!
