What is
Ride and Smile?

Since I was 4, skiing and mountain sports are some of the most important things in my life. That’s why I pursued a career as a ski teacher, beginning in 2003. Ever since I’ve been able to unite my passion and profession in 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. But it was only in 2010 when I bumped into paradise: Davos – Klosters. It’s an unbelievable place with some of the most beautiful ski scapes in the Alps. After so many years of work in this area, I felt that different needs emerged from clients. They wanted something more than just skiing. And that’s why I created Ride and Smile. My goal is to make people enjoy a diverse range of activities in snow, mixing technique, fun and a peaceful atmosphere, perfect for groups, families and individuals that want to enjoy their winter holidays without worrying about the details of planning a day or a week in the mountains. That’s why we provide personalized and exclusive services. So our clients can make the most of their time in beautiful Davos – Klosters with no worries.

Ride and Smile

Our values are built under 3 premises:


We’ll listen to the client needs and build a program based on things that would make them have a
great time with us.


Vacations are fun times. So Ride and Smile doesn’t require very strict rules to
book a class. Clients can book through the phone, text message or WhatsApp. Just that simple.


We understand clients want the best technique, so we are extremely qualified to make it happen.
We can also provide our customers with a video analysis of their practices.
