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.
"I started skiing in my home country of Scotland when I was at school, now I spend most of
the winter in the alps. As well as repping for the SCGB, I lead for the DHO and am a BASI
and IASI instructor. The most important things for me on a leading day are safety, smiles
and miles. I always enjoy driving to the resorts from Scotland as a grand touring road trip.
The rest of my year is involved in clay target shooting, for the last 17 years I’ve been
capped for Scotland in the Home International."
I spend most of the winter in Morzine, where I once ran a chalet.
I have written a series of books about my winter life called 'Skiing with Demons (1, 2 and 3). They document my experiences as a chalet host and my sometimes tempestuous relationship with skiing. My summer passion is fell walking and I try to spend most of it in the Lake District and on the Pennine Mountains.

Life long outdoors enthusiast. Telemarker and keen road cyclist. Exploration Geophysicist for over 30 years having worked in a number of locations globally. Just enjoy sharing the mountains with like minded folk.
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.
