Yasmin comes from (in her own words) “the middle of nowhere” in the Highlands of Scotland, so it’s no surprise she loves the outdoors.
But in the winters she has made Verbier home and has been training and teaching here for years. When she’s not teaching you’ll always find Yas up working on her technique and sharing ideas with her colleagues.
She loves the outdoors and during summer runs fitness retreats for woman in the heart of the Cairngorms – with all activities and workouts inspired by the natural Scottish landscape.
And it always involves jumping into the icy waters which fuel our local distillery!
Food is a big part of her life and she helps run her family whisky and food events and also cooks in lodges all around Scotland.
Her other hobbies include swimming in particularly cold water and surfing!
SOME LOCAL KNOWLEDGE:
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOUNTAIN RESTAURANT?
“My favourite restaurant is Namaste because I love the reward of great Fondu after ski-touring or walking up to the restaurant on a starry night and then sledging back to Verbier!”
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SKI AREA?
“Bruson is my favourite ski area as it is a quiet and magical winter wonderland. The tree skiing is endless and it is the best place to be on a powder day!
Plus there are extra long runs to practice on when you’re training!”
WHERE’S YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE FOR APRES?
“A tough one, but probably Vinabagnes.”
WHAT’S YOUR BEST TIP FOR A HOLIDAY IN VERBIER?
“Definitely buy a 4 valleys pass as there are so many amazing pistes and hidden gems to explore. When you venture into the 4 Valleys you’ll really feel like you’ve been on a proper adventure.”
