Pia Palm - ISIA International Ski Instructor

Born 1966 in Saltsjöbaden, Sweden. Now based in Chamonix, France.

Some people ask me if I was born with skis on, I guess I am in one way. Skiing and being in the mountains has given my life so much. Happiness, friends, good moments, work and wonderful motivated  clients. My interest and curiousness how to get my clients to ski better has been taking me on different roads. I became a massage-therapist in 1994 and have basic medicin studies. I am now certified Virya Yoga instructor, Yoga Alliance, and the combination ski/yoga/massage or trekking/yoga/massage is magic. I enjoy adventures and competitions, a great memory  is the expedition to Muztagata 7546 m, China and my four podiums of the famous Derby de La Meije.  I'm also proud of the first place in the first ever Scandinavian Extreme Ski Championships in Riksgränsen, Sweden :) Long time now.The mountains and the life in the nature will always be important to us. Summers on the beach is well worth a few weeks as well....Or kids, Robina and Max joins us sometimes on days of work, the most awarding feeling.
