What is the Fanny Smith Academy?

The Fanny Smith Academy will look to provide world class ski cross coaching to skiers of all abilities. Whether an elite pro skier competing on the World Cup Circuit or a top junior skier looking for a way to break into the sport, The Fanny Smith Academy has a course for you.

Our coaching courses will be run throughout the year in different locations to allow us to take advantage of the best snow conditions. All our courses are designed and overseen by our Director of Coaching and Boardercross World Champion, Guillaume Nantermod. Guillaume has proven himself to be a World Class coach and using his unorthodox techniques has guided Fanny Smith to the very top of the Ski X elite.

“To be a Champion, you must have more desire, work harder and have bigger dreams than anyone else. My role as coach is to combine all these facets with technique refinement and physical conditioning to produce the perfect balance which can be maintained across the length of a season or a career”Guillaume Nantermod


The Fanny Smith Academy will run a number of fixed courses across the year which can be joined by anyone meeting the necessary entry requirements/skill level. Additionally, we can provide Tailor Made courses to fit with your location, time schedules and skiing level.  If you do not see the course you require listed here, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

All of our courses are designed to be enjoyable. Our goal is that all athletes are happy and satisfied with their training, whether working on the slopes or on physical conditioning. We believe that motivation comes from positive training experiences all our coaches will strive to the deliver the best results in enjoyable and satisfying surroundings.

Our sessions are always varied and based on a combination of games, pleasure, performance and competition.

The Fanny Smith Academy also welcomes snowboarders and Boardcross athletes. The training patterns for the two disciplines are the same and infact training together can be beneficial for both athletes.

The academy also has it’s own thermobag too, which provides an amazing opportunity to increase the speed of skis.  We will have the thermobag with us all summer in Saas Fee.
