About Us

A private, exclusive Ski School in Zermatt

Samuel Hodel founded the school in 2011. Before that, he had worked for several years as a Technical Director in a large ski school in Zermatt.  Seeing the frustrations of some clients, he recognised a need to offer exclusive lessons designed to fit guests’ specific needs. Samuel Hodel now co-directs and owns Matterhorn Diamonds with Rowena Phillips.

To ensure the highest quality and best service for our guests, we recruit only best-qualified ski school instructors who all also have extensive experience of the Zermatt ski region. This ensures that your favourite time of year is exactly that!
