Meet the Judges - Riet R. Campell

International Ski Instructors Association
Ski instructors are one of the first points of contact for newcomers to snow sports. Their dedication, fun attitude and expertise can help define someone’s future in snow sports. In the second ‘Meet the FIS SnowKidz Judges’ we introduce you to Riet R. Campell President of the International Ski Instructors Association (ISIA).

Riet’s passion for snow sports extends beyond a leisure past time and has become a flourishing and enjoyable career. Born and raised in Switzerland, Riet grew around snow sports. After finishing business school, Riet became headmaster of the Celerina Ski School. From there he quickly became a big name in the Swiss Snow sports and international snow sports industry.

Some of his greatest achievements include serving as president of the FIS committee for Training and Teaching for five years and being a member of the Presidential Conference Swiss Ski. In addition he is the Co-founder of Destination Plaiv (a precursor to the Engadin St. Mortiz toursim board), the Co-founder of E + G Hotels and founding member of the IG Schnee which is the conglomeration of the key stakeholders in the snow sports industry including the Swiss Cableways Association, Swiss Ski, and Swiss Ski Instructors Association. Whilst founding, coordinating and conducting all these activities Riet became president of ISIA in 1999 and then soon a board member of Interski International.

Despite his busy work schedule, Riet still finds time to enjoy snow sports with his family. When asked what the FIS SnowKidz award means to him he commented ‘The FIS Snow Kids Award is a thank you for all those who work with innovative events for the future of youth in snow sports. We hope this form of appreciation inspires more organisers to give children around the world a chance to experience snow sports. We thank all of you who contribute to the promotion of young talent in the snow sports!’
