Right Resort, Perfect People More Info

Patricio Salerno

Raised between the city life of Buenos Aires and the mountain air of the Andes in the south of Patagonia, I’ve been skiing all my life, and my endless enthusiasm for the sport and the outdoors leads me to find the true passion for teaching what I love to do.
Becoming a Physical Therapist and a Yoga Teacher allows my students to achieve their goals by working on what they need to feel, guiding them to a more body conscious way of skiing.

Pato is also Matterhorn Diamonds’ Technical Director for the 2018-19 winter season.  Go Pato!
