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.
