MEET JULIE
BASI SKI INSTRUCTOR

Julie has been teaching skiing for years and as well as teaching in Verbier she’s also spent winters in Val d’sere, Zermatt and New Zealand.

But despite all the travel she came back and settled in Verbier, becoming one of the main coaches on our Women’s Camps.

As well as being a brilliant instructor Julie has also competed in freeride competitions including the Freeride World Tour Qualifiers – which means she’s pretty nifty when it comes to the off-piste…

Before teaching skiing Jules used to be a chef on yachts and she’s a sports massage therapist too. When she’s not skiing she’s keen on cycling, hiking, tennis and yoga – she even tried her first triathlon at Blenheim Palace and came 1st in her category.

She also keeps fit running around after her son, Cory…


SOME LOCAL KNOWLEDGE:

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOUNTAIN RESTAURANT?

“Cabane du Mont Fort. You feel like you are properly in the mountains, eating good simple mountain food. Great with friends after a big off-piste ski day.”

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SKI AREA?

“Mont Gele. Instant gratification for skiing steeps and couloirs.”

 

WHERE’S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE FOR APRES?

“Vinabagnes. Definitely.”

 

WHAT’S YOUR BEST TIP FOR A HOLIDAY IN VERBIER?

“If you are a woman who wants to ski with strong like-minded girls and get better on snow join one of our Women’s Camps and be part of our growing community.”
