About Us

A private, exclusive snow-sport school in Zermatt

Samuel Hodel founded the school in summer 2011. Before that, he had worked for several years as a Technical Director in a large snow-sports school in Zermatt.  Seeing the frustrations of some clients in that environment, 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.
