Couldn't have asked for a better instructor! After trying numerous instructors around Zermatt, I finally found Vasco & have been coming back for more each year since 2009. He is fun, flexible and most importantly patient. By far one of the very best!


I booked a last minute lesson with Vasco on New Year's Eve and learned two new skills in a couple hours. He was genuinely friendly, patient and skilled. He even helped me with the settings on my new camera! Excellent!

Vasco taught me to snowboard in 1 day and now I take any opportunity I can to snowboard with him. It is fun and he is good at spotting what needs to be corrected.


Vasco is punctual, cooperative, explanatory thorough, but most of all fun. Equally responsive to my 13yo daughter’s needs and my own. Thank you, Vasco, for an unforgettable week and the unique 360 turns!!!!


Ótimo professor. Recomendo a todos !! Pontual, eficiente e com uma metodologia para explicar os movimentos básicos muito boa. Aos brasileiros e portugueses um tiro certo. Obrigado Vasco ,


Vasco is a wonderful guide around Zermatt , both on the mountain and in the restaurants. He took us on the best pistes and helped us plan the rest of our trip. An added bonus is that he took great pictures that my son and I will cherish always.

Meus filhos de 8 e 10 anos aprenderam snowboard com o Vasco facilmente e se divertiram bastante pois ele é um grande mestre e um grande amigo. Alem disto foi meu guia e parceiro nas aventuras mais radicais em Zermatt. Abraços e ate a próxima!!!valeu.


Thanks Vasco for giving me a superb 2 hours snowboard lesson!! It was efficient and improving to have a private lesson - something I could very much recommend. Best wishes, Mimmi (Stockholm)


I had snowboard lessons with Vasco,while i was in Zermatt in 2011.Vasco,is very efficient and has excellent knowledge on Snowboard.He is very patient,and he can communicate with the student very thoroughly.I really enjoyed my lessons with Vasco!!


My brother Klaas and I had the most wonderful snowboarding experience with Vasco. Most certainly the best spent money ever ! We enjoyed his company every single minute. If Zermatt is such a nice place, it is for sure thanks to people as Vasco !
