Senior Examiner, Demo Team member and a Trainer.
Matt got hooked on skiing as a wee nipper thanks to his persistent parents. His first days on the boards were at Round Hill (Tekapo Ski Area). Growing up in the Canterbury area meant he was never too far from one of the South Island’s many ski areas. Subsequently, spending school holidays skiing at Coronet Peak and Treble Cone.
With this passion for the snow it was inevitable that he would seek a job in snowsports. What started as a bit of a break from Uni has turned into a twenty-plus year career. Most of this time was spent instructing and training instructors at Cardrona Alpine Resort, along with many seasons instructing in the USA.
Matt has been an Examiner with the NZSIA since 1996, was selected for the Demo Team for Interski Korea 2007 and again in St Anton 2011. Nowadays Matt works as a Trainer for Cardrona Snowsports School.
Matt enjoys equipment supplied Salomon and Bolle NZ. When you cant find him tearing up the vertical at TC he’s probably tearing up the local single track on his mountain bike – preferably his DH!
