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

Robin

My name is Robin Kaptein, 21 years old and from Lochem Gelderland. Now I must say that I can no longer be found here so often. From an early age I have always been with my parents to the mountain countries, skiing holidays and walking holidays were always the annual outing. Because of this I was inspired at a young age by the mountains and nature, especially for the sporting possibilities in the alpine countries. After high school I went to study at the CIOS Arnhem. Here I got my trainer-coach diploma with the outflow stream Outdoor sports. During these years I set my sights on becoming an international mountain guide within the IVBV training in Austria. This is my absolute dream! For this I gradually started following training within the Austrian ski teacher system. With this I taught four seasons in Austria in Sankt Johann in Tirol, I have also worked in Coronet Peak, Queentown New Zealand for one season. I am also connected to the current ski Anwarter course at CIOS Arnhem, where we train current students for the ski instructor exam in Austria. In the meantime I have obtained my Landes diploma in snow sport in Tyrol, next January I will start my state course in snow sport Austria. This is the highest attainable ski teacher certificate in Austria. This made me eligible for the Dutch Interski Team, which will represent the Netherlands this winter at the four-yearly international ski teacher meeting in Bulgaria. After my Staatliche training I hope to be able to start my dream: the Austrian IVBV Training. My little boy’s dream has gradually become reality. And I spend all my free time on mountain adventures and of course with my passion for snow and snow sports. Robin Kaptein Instagram: robin Kaptein

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.
