SKI BOOT FLEX

Ski boot flex is not standardized. It is not a myth either. If anything, ‘flex’ is a relative indicator of ‘directness’. There are several aspects of a ski boot that influence this ‘directness’, and therefore ‘flex’.   Flex factors A few things factor into the directness of a ski boot. Stiffness or the materials is […]

Kay

Who is that behind the camera with all those travel photos !? Well, that’s me: Kay and I love to put myself in places where people rarely go.

Geertje

Under the guise of “if she can walk, she can ski,” Geertje was put on a pair of plastic skietjes at the age of 1.5, and a year later it was time for the first pair of real skis. With two pairs of socks on because there were no ski boots in her size, she made her first ski meters. After the first time with the gondola up, little Geertje came downstairs, howling because she wanted to go again and was not allowed. It is clear that that love of skiing has never disappeared. In the meantime, Geertje has won 24 national titles in alpine skiing. In different age categories and disciplines, and on all surfaces. In addition, she has also performed well in international competitions, such as a 14th place at the Universiade, 3rd at the German junior championships and a 22nd place in the European Cup. After 9 years of top sport and various injuries, it was time to put an end to the top sport career and she started working as a coordinator at Snowsports Academy Racing. After 3 years in that position, she started working as a self-employed person. Geertje is currently training ski skiers at Ski Racing Heemskerk, has her own G-Force team and partly runs a team for juniors and senior racers from the Netherlands and Belgium. In addition, she also likes to work with fanatic and advanced adults. And finally, in the little bit of time that remains, as an EQfit coach, she helps people with their personal development. By the way, don’t underestimate Geertje as a “slalom girl”. She also likes to go down in the field and put Berber on fire in the Dutch freeride competitions. Ski courses: Landes 1, Alpinkurs, D-Trainer and Trainergrundkurs.

Annemiek

Annemiek was on skis for the first time at the age of four. Her flashy skiing career began by participating in the “gästerennen” in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis at the end of the ski class. Winter sports soon became her favorite holiday, preferably several times a year! After her study Educational Science & Technology, she went after the winter. Summer in the Netherlands? Surely there must be snow somewhere else in the world? And yes, she continued her career in New Zealand and followed a ski instructor training, after which she would stick to a winter in Canada. After having been in the office for 3 years in the Netherlands, she wanted to go to the snow for a little longer than 1 week a year in paid vacation days. It became a Japan season. And then really back to the office! But not for long …. The Japow liked it so much that she will spend her fifth winter in Japan next season. She is now also a snowboard teacher and has followed the necessary back country courses. Together with her husband Merijn, they have since bought a lodge and set up their own snowsports school. They both fell in love with the snow, the culture and the possibilities that Japan has to offer. With their company Japan Snowsports, the couple offers its customers a great Japan experience both in powder and beyond. Oh yes, and on the side she does some extra work as a freelance e-learning specialist. By organizing her life in this way she knows how to combine her passions for learning and snow in the ultimate way. www.jpsnowsports.com

Annika

As a 9 year old girl I got to experience skiing for the first time. However my first attempt wasn’t on a snowy slope it was on the dry ski slope ‘de wolfskamer’. No crunching white powder underneath me but balancing my way down on with dishwashing liquid dripping planks… it wasn’t necessarily love at first sight. A dry ski slope is quite hard to master and can be a real pain in the ass. But once you’ve got the hang of it you’ve made a pretty good start. During our families’ first winter sport vacation all dry slope trauma evaporated and I instantly developed a deep admiration for skiing. That deep felt love was the reason I traveled to Austria at the age of 19 to follow the Anwärter study that even further catapulted the passion. Two seasons followed and many vacations were spend as a ski instructor in the snow. Up in the mountains is where I belong. The speed… adrenaline… freedom… it still gives me that ultimate feeling of being alive. In a white wonderland setting as enchanting like what you read in a fairy tale. I couldn’t ask for more. After my study within the social sector I started my career in a rather different one; the media. A fast paced and dynamic world. I discovered that I wasn’t an all-rounder exclusively to the slopes but as well at work. Thanks to my creative and innovative views and ideas on certain topics I got quickly promoted to manager of big projects. Though being on top of my game I saw in 2015 my own snow melting before my very eyes. I felt stuck in this 9 to 9 mentality that left me with an empty feeling far from freedom. After some time off I decided to only partake in things that make me truly happy which is skiing and working with children combined with as much creativity possible. So I’ve made a 180 turn career switch. Besides anything skiing I’m currently setting up my own Children’s therapy practice Tante Anni where I provide therapy based on problem solving that can be found naturally within nature. The idea sprouted from the long cherished wish that every child  should be able to learn how to deal with its problems in a natural fashion and together with a therapist they’ll be transformed into adventures in the outdoors. I see myself as a woman who is a true all-rounder in ski boots and high heels who aims to continuously warrant the feeling of joy and happiness for herself and others. Life is one big adventure.

Gavin

My love affair with Snow-Sports began when I was a kid, no idea how old. But less than 10 for sure. I remember sledging on a private ski club hill in the Peak District, Derbyshire. Seeing some skiers and a button lift, I knew I wanted this. Ski Sunday and the two Bell Brothers, Martin and Graham racing for GB later caught my imagination. My course was set. I first skied age 14. Pamporovo, Bulgaria, 1989. Day 1. I reasoned snowplough was unnecessary. I could basically speed skate on the ice rink. Surely, I could do parallels easy? I suggested this to my instructor, he disagreed. I refused to learn snowplough. On that basis we fell out. So, after lunch on day 1, for this reason, my instructor said follow his directions and snowplough with the class or ski on my own. On my own it was. I skied on the same hill next to my ski class, alone. I fell. Lots. End of Day 2, after falling & failing, then failing & falling, the parallels clicked. I never looked back. A speed demon was born. End of Day 3 I skied down “the Wall”. These days, I’m a 21year old kid trapped in a well-used (maybe abused) body, 44 years old. My sporting lifetime includes playing a little pro & semi pro cricket, being a licensed free fall skydiver, motorsports participant, martial artist (karate) and super keen skier (I qualified as an instructor with IASI in 2015) for 30 years. In 2019 I vowed to step away from corporate life to develop myself as a Life/Success Coach. My intention was for my life to be reformed around my skiing. I am slowly re-dedicating my life. Skiing is now my dominant sport & passion. Mountain life is in my soul. My love of sport at the heart of it all. My vision, through the medium of skiing, is to coach people in the art of the growth mindset. To help develop and leverage internal mental power to drive you onwards and upwards, to strengthen the body and mind and fulfil all your potential, create success for yourself and discover your joy, on or off the Mountain. January 20, 2020 brought a significant life event. My right ski came off carving round an S bend hard left. I was thrown into at least two trees. My injuries? 16 bone fractures, a lung haematoma, exploded knee. 2 operations, titanium leg plates, reconstructed knee.  Still a speed demon lives. Rehab will be long and hard. For season 2021 to be my comeback I will work harder than ever before. I will recover. I will be stronger. I will be a better skier and a better coach. I will succeed and leverage my experience to help people who want and need a little help to reach their dream. I will make this experience become a benefit for myself and others What is my experience for, if not for the use and benefit those who seek help and support to develop their life and realise their dreams? Combining innovative approaches to traditional ski teaching with other modes of learning and a proprietary model for success, psychological resilience and strength development, I will enable and support people to reach and achieve their own dreams, in skiing and in life. Because for Me, Skiing IS LIFE and every Human Being deserves to live unlimited. Come & Ski, let me delimit you.
