    Dates leading on resort: From: 22/12/2018 To: 12/01/2019
    I first discovered skiing when I was 11 and went on my first ski holiday with my school to Austria - I can't remember where, it was a very long time ago! Never mind, the place didn't leave much of an impression but the sport certainly did. I continued to ski until my 20's when it became a religion and I then qualified as an instructor. That still wasn't good enough, the passion grew and grew until now in my 30's, the time came for a career break: I left the world of design and set up a small independent ski company based in the Chamonix valley. Which I ran successfully for 5 years, until the real world caught up with me again. I saw the club leader position, not merely as a means to ski more, but give back some of my passion for the sport by helping other skiers enjoy there holiday to the max., through what I see as an invaluable club service. So what happens when the snow melts? You'll often find me on the Dorset coast windsurfing, running, cycling ...... See you on the slopes!

    Peter Beck

    Dates leading on resort: From: 12/01/2019 To: 19/01/2019
    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 endulge 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.

    Dates leading on resort: From: 19/01/2019 To: 26/01/2019
    Enjoying retirement, in the vineyards of South -West France, but I also live in Eastbourne in UK. I am currently studying for a part-time MA in History of the First World War. Austria remains my firm favourite, although I do manage a warm-up in the French Pyrenees each winter. This year I am leading a holiday in Bad Hofgastein (my 8th time!) and a holiday in Zell am Ziller. Both should be great fun and I hope to see you there for some terrific skiing.

    I have been a ski club leader since 2009. Since then I have done a two week leader slot and a holiday most years. Becoming a ski club leader was one of the best things I have done. It has helped take my skiing to another level , but the best thing has been meeting a fantastic eclectic mix of people . I look forward to continuing my involvement with the club in the years to come . I enjoy a variety of sports , my main interest outside skiing being badminton which I play regularly and coach a junior club which I started about 10 yrs ago. I also climb , bike, both mountain and road , run the occasional half marathon and Kayak , oh yes and also find time to do some work as a Vet .

    I love the combination of meeting new people and skiing.I try to extract maximum enjoyment from every inch of the mountain and so only go fast when needed.Left to me,I look for quieter spots and softest snow..I am happy having breaks that are shorter but more frequent if its sunny. In my other life I like triathlon and cookery. I look forward to meeting you and sharing some fun times on the mountain

    Susan Kalderon

    Dates leading on resort: From: 16/03/2019 To: 23/03/2019
    I booked my first skiing holiday as soon as I had my first pay packet, and have been skiing almost every year since. I just love the combination of the continuing challenges of the sport, being in the outdoors, mountain scenery, winter sun and apple strudels (or tartes) galore. Although I have skied in resorts from Canada through all the major resorts of Europe to Japan, as a family we enjoyed 15 years in Lech where our children all learnt to ski, whilst we took up ski touring. My more recent experience has been in the Valais, Switzerland. Although the full Haute Route is not for me, I have been able to enjoy many parts of it on day tours. I have been a member of the SCGB since I started skiing. I met my husband in Courmayeur over 30 years ago, where we both skied with a SCGB leader. I took the SCGB ski leaders course in December 2017, and I am now looking forward to leading in different resorts in the Alps.

    Robert Doe

    Dates leading on resort: From: 23/03/2019 To: 06/04/2019
    I learnt to ski during a gap year with a school friend who then spent another 4 seasons on skis in the Alps, so I enjoyed the privilege of a personal ski guide in 3 other resorts. Now its my turn. I've done loads of other sports and am still pretty enthusiastic about rowing (racing and coaching) but skiing stands out for me as that really special experience. I was the end-of-season leader in Saas Fee last year and now back for more. With a couple of weeks to go before the start of my tour, the recent dump looks set to provide us with a fantastic late-season base. See you there!
