Due to the Coronavirus situation, all Ski Club on snow activities, including Freshtracks holidays, Rep service and Instructor-Led Guiding are now cancelled for the season.
When I started skiing in the 70s, skis were thin & very long, we all aspired to have skis longer than anyone else. Once a passionate, “advanced leisure skier”, I discovered the ski club and found that skiing over 40 need not be all reds, lunch and bar talk of blacks runs.
I joined the ski club in 1997, it opened a window to meeting like-minded people who loved the exhilaration of speed and exploring resorts, either on piste or off. I met my wife, Claire, skiing off-piste with the club. Within a couple of years our son Tom arrived, who is now a purple skier.
Outside of skiing you will either find me wandering or cycling the Pennines, Derbyshire and Yorkshire dales. I’m an avid cycle tourist, and have cycled all over Europe and America - there are lots more places in my bucket list to explore on two wheels and two skis.
I love to ski fast on challenging terrain, especially off-piste, and am looking forward to meeting many more like-minded SCGB members.
Since first skiing in Sauze d'Oulx in 1981 I have skied regularly throughout Europe with friends and family. I love the whole ski experience and promoting it to everyone.
2020 sees me back in Mayrhofen for my 5th season so lots of local knowledge and advice to share with members in the new role as a "rep" rather than a "leader". Hope to meet up with some old friends and make some new ones too. Meet me in Mo's bar each evening to help plan your days.
When not skiing I spend a lot of time on the tennis court, walking the dog or out on one of my bikes.
I started skiing in my mid 20’s (some time ago) and was immediately bitten by the ski bug! Since then I have skied many resorts in various countries including Austria, France, Italy, Canada and Argentina. I see skiing as a social activity and love the element of skiing with people of all ages and abilities. I have managed over the years to evolve my career (TV/AV production and postproduction) to be able to fit around my time on the ski slopes! I have greatly benefited from skiing with the Ski Club in the past and so now feel privileged to be able to contribute as a Ski Club Rep this year.
