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.
Skiing really is my great passion. While I have been skiing longer than would like to admit, I still can't get enough. Whether it's dumping in the trees or finishing with slush and a late long lunch, cranking out race turns on the piste or finding the steep and deep, days on skis can't be beaten. Over the years I have been lucky to ski on four continents in countless - well in excess of 50 - resorts from Alta to Zermatt, taking in the likes of must-ski places like Jackson Hole, Whistler, St Anton, and Val d'sere along the way and spending several season's worth of weeks in Tignes and Verbier where I have been a leader for the club. I've also found myself skiing in some off the beaten track resorts like Indianhead and Wildcat Mountain in the US and as well as seeking out some hidden European gems. Since becoming a leader in 2009, I've met loads of friends who are batty about skiing as me and can't wait to get back out there and make some more.
Came to skiing relatively late at 22, which was a long time ago and I caught the bug from the very beginning. I’ve not missed a season ever since. Just LOVE the mountains and have never had a bad day. Retired early, which allows me to indulge in my passion. I’ve met some fantastic people leading for the club and looking forward to more great days, hopefully catch up with some old and new friends on the slopes in 2019/20.
People go self employed for many reasons, mine was partly to make room for skiing ! I am a passionate skier having started at an early age and love sharing my passion for skiing by leading in resort and on holidays.
Now in my sixth season I am looking forward to meeting up with members in Whistler. If you are in Whistler from mid Feb to first week of March then I hope to see you either at the morning meeting point or at the evening social hour.
Like many British skiers, my ski journey began with a wet and wild school trip to Norway. Eleven years old and instantly hooked, even the -36° plus wind chill that closed the resort couldn't halt my enthusiasm.
Nowadays, when not exploring snowy nooks and crannies all over the world, you'll likely find me at Whistler Blackcomb, where I spend an alarming amount of time.
Well versed in the art of après, when not seeking out fresh thrills, you'll catch me practicing this essential pastime. I hope to see you in the mountains this season. Come and say 'Hi!'
