Unusually for an instructor, Caroline first put on skis at 18yrs old on a chance family holiday. From that moment she was hooked on! During the years working in sports development she spent holidays and a winter season working for luxury family travel company Powder Byrne; gaining experience in the ski industry. Since then she has spent the majority of her time in Zermatt.
