Simone was in the Piemonte regional team for a while, but his goal was always to become an “istruttore”an instructors instructor, the most prestigious qualification in Italian skiing. At 19 he became a ski instructor, at 20 a ski club trainer, and 22 a national trainer and at 23 he became the youngest “Istruttore” in Italy, and one of only 30 instructors in Italy to have all 4 qualifications. He is the most highly qualified ski instructor in Sauze d’Oulx.
Simone has had the opportunity of working with World Cup Swiss race preparation teams as a trainer. He has even himself been apart of the Interski Italian team, competing in Argentina 2015 where they were named winners.
Now, Simone works for the Sauze d’Oulx ski club, teaching youngsters that want to become instructors. He also has experience in the freestyle discipline and instructs for Freeski Sauze with his brother Marco.
Over the past 3 years Simone had been competing in vertical or ‘sky’ running competitions and has podium places in a number of world series races. This year he has initiated and organized Sauze’s very own sky race up to Mt. Generis (Faro degli Alpini).
Simone’s partner Emily is an experienced instructor and joins the team this year teaching the children at the Baby Parking La Libellula as well as offering private tuition here in Sauze.
