Sander is known for his amazing skiing, terrain knowledge and love for nature. He was born in the Netherlands and started skiing when he was 4 years old in the Swiss Alps. He started working as a snowsports professional in 2000.
He mostly coaches skiers improving their off-piste technique, guiding them safely whilst always finding ways of improving their technique. Mountain safety is his other main priority during these trips, and so great care is taken regarding hazardous terrain and risk management.
Sander also works for the Snow Safety Centre. He has worked for many years as an SSC ski guide, providing training in mountain and avalanche awareness. Therefore he always knows the latest risk management and search & rescue techniques.
In his spare time Sander is usually freeriding high up on the mountain, cruising down steep slopes or through narrow couloirs and is always on the lookout for fresh new routes.
