Amin Momen

Amin Momen

Managing Director & Founder

My passion for skiing has shaped my career, my life and my work. At the ripe old age of 8, when I was still in Iran, my father would drop me off and leave me with a ski instructor all day at a local ski hill outside Tehran on his way to the Caspian sea. He’d be off to oversee some works and then pick me up on his way back at the end of the day. And that’s where it all started. Since then I’ve travelled extensively in Europe and North America as well as to many lesser known ski destinations worldwide. I founded Momentum Ski with a single vision - to enable everyone to enjoy the whole alpine experience as much as I have with the help of my knowledge and experience, and in doing so guaranteeing you the trip of a lifetime.

Mathilde Carpentier

Mathilde Carpentier

After Sales Coordinator

Mathilde is the office Ninja. Under Loredana's precious guidance, she learnt not to leave anything to chance and will make sure everything is in order before your departure! Although she is terrible on the slopes she does enjoy chilling at the resort as long as it is indoors and with a nice glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Mathilde is an expert of all things French - be it cheese or cured meat!


Jonathan Davies

Jonathan Davies

Event Coordinator

Momentum's go-to man for operations in the Alps. JD brings huge experience and great knowledge of the Alps to our events team. NBC poached him to work on both the London Olympics and the Winter Olympics in Sochi, but his true calling is managing the Momentum Ski giant slalom start gate at our racing events. He's a sandwich afficionado, so just make sure he has a good stash in his pocket!

Paris has had extensive experience within the travel industry over the past decade as well as hitting the slopes numerous times. She has a firm passion for skiing and has skied the main areas of The Three Vallees, The Milky Way and Espace Killy ski domains. Her favourite and most annoying hobby is to sing, but don't worry…. her tone is unlikely to cause an avalanche!

Chris Ward

Chris Ward

Courmayeur Guru & Resort Coordinator

Chris is a local who left the U.K. for Courmayeur back in 1988 to "do a ski season to get it out of my system" and just could'nt leave! If that's not a good reason to visit Courmayeur, then what is? She's been taking care of visitors to the resort ever since. A very keen skier, both downhill and cross-country, Chris has lots of hands-on experience of the area and neighbouring resorts and endless local contacts to ensure things happen when needed and our valued guests get the best out of this very special alpine destination. Catch her in the Bar Roma for a chat and a Spritz at apres ski time!
