What is Ride and Smile?

I’m Manuel Vögel from Austria, founder of Ride and Smile

Since I was 4, skiing and mountain sports have been some of the most important things in my life. I became a ski teacher in 2003 and, ever since, I’ve been able to unite my passion and profession into one single thing.

I’ve been working and exploring some of the most renowed ski resorts in Switzerland, such as Vals, Lenzerheide and St. Moritz. In 2010 I bumped into paradise: Davos Klosters, an unbelievable place with some of the most beautiful ski scapes in the Alps with many possibilities to offer. After 5 years in the ski school Klosters I wanted to offer the guests in our region a bit more than just skiing.

Driven by the desire to extend my passion for the mountains and all the possibilities for pleasurable experiences they provide, I founded Ride and Smile.
