    Dates leading on resort: From: 16/12/2017 To: 06/01/2018
    My favourite part of skiing is the sense of freedom when skiing off piste away from the crowds. I love skiing anywhere but Austria is my favourite. When at home I work as a data analyst usually in banking but I try to organise work so that I can go skiing as much as possible. I try to keep fit by swimming and cycling. These days my rugby consists of watching my local club and having a beer in the bar afterwards!

    Alastair Ross

    Dates leading on resort: From: 06/01/2018 To: 20/01/2018
    I have been leading for the Ski Club for over ten years and have enjoyed numerous great days in many resorts in Europe and the US. For the last few years, I have led primarily in Obergurgl in January. I have also been trying to visit new resorts when not skiing with the Club including recent trips to Japan and Norway. I also enjoy cross country skiing and managed to achieve my ambition of completing the Engadin Ski Marathon in under three hours - never again! Apart from skiing I lead a relatively quiet life in Herefordshire although I do travel fairly regularly. Much of May and September is spent in Scotland. Over the last few years this has been devoted to climbing the Munros, which we managed to finally complete in 2014. This season I look forward to leading again firstly in Obergurgl in January, followed a great Freshtracks trip to Utah in late February.

    Clare Hovey

    Dates leading on resort: From: 20/01/2018 To: 03/02/2018
    I learned to ski in Europe as a teenager. I love this sport and have had great fun over the years skiing in Europe, Canada, US and Australia. It's hard to beat the 'rush' of a great day skiing with fun people in beautiful mountain scenery and clean, fresh air. I am a self confessed 'piste queen' and am happiest either skiing at speed, cruising the views or when finding cheeky little powder stashes.

    Dates leading on resort: From: 03/02/2018 To: 17/02/2018
    Hi, I have been a leader for 20 years and have skied/snowboarded in numerous resorts all over the alps. I have lived and worked in Switzerland at times and so lucky to visit many lesser known ski resorts both in winter and summer. I look forward to taking you on an adventure or two!

    Peter Lewis

    Dates leading on resort: From: 17/02/2018 To: 03/03/2018
    My introduction to skiing was as a teenager during a "white out" at Glenshee! Not put off, I went on to join the Aberdeen Ski Club and spent many school day week-ends getting to grips with two meter skis and doing some (very) amateur ski racing. I spent a winter working in the Alps after university and have since gone on to ski many of the major resorts in Europe and north America. I was a season ticket holder on Cairngorm for 10 years and have undertaken ski mountaineering trips in both the Alps and Morocco. Summer sports include hill walking (and some climbing) in Scotland and the Alps and I have recently participated in some of the Borders common ridings. I have been leading for the Ski Club for 10 years and enjoy the opportunity of sharing my passion for skiing and the mountains ( as well as finding nice restaurants and bars for the occasional apres beer!).

    Reg Favell

    Dates leading on resort: From: 03/03/2018 To: 17/03/2018
    I have been skiing for 35 years and attended the Leaders Course in 1992. Since then I have led Ski Club groups in many countries and particularly Austria and France in recent years. This year I am looking forward to seeing many old friends and making new ones in Obergurgl and Les Arcs. I love the mountain environment and walking in the mountains in the summer. The summer before last I completed the Haute Route across the Swiss Alps. Last summer I completed the 3 Yorkshire Peaks which was a bit easier. I also play lots of tennis and contract bridge.

    Dates leading on resort: From: 17/03/2018 To: 31/03/2018
    I started skiing as a teenager in Scotland and since then I have always tried to ski every year in the Alps or the Rockies . After discovering the Ski Club in 2011 I realised I wasn t skiing nearly enough . So now I am trying to maximise my time on the slopes and am looking forward to leading in Obergurgl this year.

    Dates leading on resort: From: 31/03/2018 To: 14/04/2018
    I first skied on a school trip to Austria and was instantly hooked! I have since spent seasons in France and New Zealand. I have also spent time in Japan, Italy and most recently Canada. I am a languages teacher, and enjoy speaking French and German when out in resort. I enjoy all sports and I like to travel whenever I can. I look forward to meeting you in Obergurgl!
