About Lena

About me and my ways

HI, I’m Lena,

a Danish skier, lover of everything skiing, nature, family, outdoors, communication and teaching. I have lived in the mountains all of my adult life, mostly in the French Alps, but also New Zealand, Colorado, Switzerland and Norway. I am qualified to the highest international level (BASI ISTD) with full French and Danish equivalence and 20 years down the line, I still love getting ready for a day on the hill. I have such enthusiasm for teaching and love passing on the love our beautiful sport. Over the last two decades I have taught hundreds of people and not two lessons have ever been the same.

I am a native Danish speaker, fluent in English and almost in French.
I am also a qualified massage therapist, white water raft guide and have worked for an outdoor activity in Norway, primarily as a rafting guide and climbing instructor. I did pursue a philosophy degree at university in Denmark before I was swept away by the energy of the mountains.

I am married to Olivier, my ski/snowboard/telemarking and surf instructing husband and together we have two kids, Freya (4) and Milo (2 1/2). We live in a small old school village in the Tarentaise valley at the foot of Val d’Isère, Tignes, La Rosière, Sainte Foy, Villaroger and Paradiski (Les Arcs/La Plagne). It really is an area where we are spoiled for choice.
If we are not skiing, we are probably cycling, hiking or taking the kids to the local pump track. Or sleeping 🙂


When I teach, I am fully present and I bring my heart to work every day.
My empathy is my foundation of everything I do. I want to help and inspire others to explore how much they are truly capable of. We ski of course, but my purpose is to make it more than ‘just skiing’. We move beyond and start tapping in to deeper areas of the individual because skiing often opens the door to our fears, perceived (lack of) abilities, our ways of thinking and learning.

When using skiing as a tool, we end up walking away with so much more than just new technical skills. We grow as humans because we get more conscious insight into how we approach new situations that challenge us. We become aware of that ‘inner voice’ that too often reminds us of our limits rather than encouraging us.
I strive to bring out the best you, to give you the strongest inner voice that will speak positively towards the goals that you choose to set.

This way skiing becomes about life. The broad spectrum of feelings it awakens in us, I believe is why we are all so in love with this sport.
