Petra, from Austria, has spent a lifetime on the Nordic ski trails and alpine slopes throughout Tyrol. Most years, she teaches English in her hometown. A sabbatical this year has given her more time to ski on her own and lead us through some of her favorite trails in Tyrol. Ask her about her recent bike tour around New Zealand’s north and south islands.
Elena, from Italy, has been guiding for decades. In the summer, she leads groups on bike tours through Italy.
