Theophane

Theo

As a Montessori teacher, Theo is a true asset to the school.
His extensive experience with teaching kids is precious but don’t be fooled by his composure; Theo is a killer on a snowboard. As soon as the winter is over, you won’t see him much around Chamonix but surely somewhere with big waves.

Arthur

Son of a world cup ski racer, Arthur was naturally put on skis when he could walk. In the summer, you can spot Arthur on a roof or chopping down trees… He and his dad build houses from top to bottom.
Arthur connects easily with his students and is known for bringing the best out of them.

charliine

Charline

From Combloux, France, to Thredbo, Australia, and Niseko, Japan, Charline has had the chance to teach in beautiful and diverse resorts since 2018.
Still kind of a nomad; she lives in the mountains in Winter and Provence the rest of the year.
Chaline tries to teach skiing with three mantras: boosting self-confidence, fulfilment, and kindness.

Hi, I’m Jorick

At Skibex, we’ve all known each other for one, two, or almost three decades. Therefore it was easy to write their short bio. I then realised it is much harder to write about yourself.
I will be on skis every winter day, teaching or touring the mountain with friends.
If not skiing, I’ll probably be climbing, reading or busy answering your ski lessons enquiry!
