Hi, I’m Nikki. My passion for winter sports began when I was only four years old on my first family ski holiday in Obergurgl in Austria. I’m lucky enough to have parents who were, and are still, great ski enthusiasts. From then on, I dreamt of skiing every day! Now, thankfully, skiing has become a part of my everyday life as I am lucky enough to live near the Southern French Alps and am a web editor for Snowplaza UK. A dream come true! I recommend Austria for wonderful, authentic family ski holidays that you will remember for ever! Read more of my articles


After being kind of forced into liking skiing, I now can’t thank my parents enough for signing me up for that school trip when I was 11 years old! Skiing, and now snowboarding, are as essential to me as eating and drinking – if I don’t do them, I get sick! For anyone who loves snowboarding the best spots for me are Avoriaz, Les Deux Alpes and in Mayrhofen. Read more of my articles


Hello! My name is Thijs. I am a passionate skier and am always looking for the best après-ski bars. Fun and entertainment are a must for me on my ski holidays. At Snowplaza, my colleagues know me as an après-ski expert who always knows the best tips for the cosiest mountain cafés, the best night clubs and the latest hits on the dance floor. In the Snowplaza ski guide you can read all about my experiences on the slopes. My tip for a lively ski holiday with awesome skiing and plenty of après-ski is St. Anton in Austria.


Hi, I'm Miranda. As far back as I can remember, I've always had something to do with the mountains. Skiing, snowboarding, hiking or mountain biking – there isn’t a mountain sport I don’t love! I spent many years working in Trentino as a ski instructor and now know this area like the back of my hand. Friends often say that there isn’t a ski resort where I haven´t been – and it’s not far from the truth! The best spot for me is in St. Moritz.


Hi my name is Michael. I have been active in the ski industry for over 8 years now and one of my favourite spots is Les Deux Alpes. Mainly for the fantastic slopes but also for the great après-ski! I also like spending my ski holiday in the smaller, cosier ski resorts where you can almost have the slopes to yourself. My recommendation for your next ski holiday: [IL:IT], not expensive and great for skiing!


Hello, I'm Felix. Honestly, there has only been one sport for me ever since my school days: skiing! As soon as the first snowflakes fall, I am already standing on the Bretten and heading down the slopes! Luckily I get to share all my experiences and recommendations about ski resorts on our website and through our travel magazine, My tip for ski holidays in Italy – try the unforgettable ski resort of Val Gardena!


Hi, my name is Joeri. I was lucky enough to learn to ski as soon as I learnt to walk! My grandparents had a house in the West Village in the Wilder Kaiser ski area, in Austria and that´s where my love for skiing was born. Every winter season, I try to be up on the slopes as often as possible and to share my experiences with Snowplaza’s visitors. My favourite ski area is of course, the Wilder Kaiser!
