stevo, sainte Foy Feb 2021


Independent Snowboard Instructor based in Sainte Foy Tarentaise and available to work in Tignes, Val d'Isere, Les Arcs and La Rosiere.


I hold the BASI Snowboard level 4 ISTD.. Even as a passionate snowboarder for over twenty years, it was a long, long journey to get here, adapting my love of powder and steeps to riding a lot more park and freestyle, honing the shape of my turns and finding myself standing in international Boardercross start gates. 

I love helping people to build and progress their riding, whether that's teaching new riders or helping advanced riders develop their carving, steeps, freestyle or backcountry technique. 

Backcountry freeriding is my real passion. I've been an all-year-round Sainte Foy local since 2007 and know the mountain like I was born here. As well as my snowboard instructor qualification, I also hold the International Mountain Leader award, giving me a much deeper and broader knowledge of navigation, snow safety and the mountain environment.Through the summer, I work as a mountain bike guide and head-honcho at White Room Mountain Biking.

Looking forward to sharing some turns with you this winter!
