Elias grew up in Copenhagen, Denmark – a land known for its rather flat landscape…
However, this didn’t stop him from skiing as his parents took him to Norway at the age of three. And ever since Elias took his first run down the mountain his passion for skiing has been constantly growing.
This brought him to the alps every year, with several visits to Verbier. So it was only a matter of time before he settled here to enjoy the amazing terrain and follow his dream job as a ski instructor.
During off-season he enjoys an active lifestyle and loves spending time running, playing tennis, training Muay Thai as well as spending time with water activities.
Elias loves to help people improve their technical skills and boost their confidence. But most of all he wants to make sure everyone has an amazing time in Verbier and leaves with some amazing memories.
SOME LOCAL KNOWLEDGE:
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOUNTAIN RESTAURANT?
“If you are skiing in the Nendaz area, you should definitely visit Cabane de Balavaux, a small, original Swiss restaurant situated at an altitude of 2042 metres. You’ll enjoy the cozy atmosphere on the sunny terrace with a breathtaking view of the valley.
Meanwhile, it’s not a mountain restaurant, but Shed Burgers located downtown Verbier is amazing. The restaurant is known for their perfectly grilled burgers and a variety of side dishes.”
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SKI AREA?
“I absolutely love La Chaux because it’s an excellent place for families at all ski-levels. It´s well connected to the resort and offers easy navigation with a good overview of the area. Personally I’m a fan of the ‘Snow Park Verbier’ and the atmosphere.”
WHERE’S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE FOR APRES?
“I prefer Le Rouge because it offers a fantastic atmosphere, especially in the afternoon when lounge music sets the mood. On the rooftop terrace, the music gradually gets livelier while on the lower terrace there’s plenty of space to relax and enjoy a drink or a beer in the afternoon sun.”
WHAT’S YOUR BEST TIP FOR A HOLIDAY IN VERBIER?
“The 4 Vallées is an amazing ski area! You should definitely try skiing in some of the other Vallées like Veysonnaz, Thyon, or Bruson (technically part of Verbier, but…).
The slopes are wide, surrounded by beautiful trees and various mountain views. As some of the Vallées are a long way from Verbier, so you should consider booking a ski instructor depending on your ski-level. Maybe a nice Danish instructor who knows the way…”
