    Skiing Expert


    Learning to ski in his native Sweden when he was just 6 years old, Alex has since travelled and skied all over the world.

    A certified instructor, boot fitter and on of our ski testers, he has plenty of hands-on experience helping people find the perfect ride.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Dolomites, Italys. My favourite ski resort is probably the Dolomites, Canazei in particular. Just because you get great skiing and it's not as crowded as the Alps can be. And going up to the mountain "Marmelada" is amazing!"
