Joining an airline in my early twenties opened up a whole new world to me - literally! As well as travelling to exciting destinations, many new opportunities presented themselves. I learnt to ski in Alaska on a stopover enroute to Japan. I thought I was just going to sightsee, skiing colleagues had other ideas and before I knew it I was kitted out, pushed onto a chairlift and told to "just get on with it"! Not the best way to learn but rather the story of my life being the typical stubborn Capricorn and not acceding to defeat easily.
Since those early days I have been lucky enough to ski on average 4 weeks a year and continually work on my technique especially when skiing in Verbier at the beginning and end of most seasons. As well as being a passionate skier, I love to horse ride and my ambition is to learn to jump. I help to teach youngsters with disabilities to ride when I am in the UK. I also play golf whenever I can and have just taken up Nordic walking as yet another hobby!
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 metre skis and taking part in junior 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 both Scotland and the Alps. I have been leading for the Ski Club for 12 seasons 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!).
I have now been a Ski Club Leader and Representative for more than 25 years and still love it! I enjoy making the most of every days skiing.
I look forward to being with old friends and new this coming season. I hope that many will come to my Social Hour in the Sunstar from 6 to 7pm.
I enjoy every aspect and style of downhill skiing - from cruisey blues through thigh-burning reds and jaw-dropping blacks to heart-pumping moguls and waist-burying powder (when available). But, more than anything else, skiing is for me a social sport so there is nothing I like more than making new friends and enjoying convivial company while finding new places to ski and new routes to travel between picturesque chocolate stops and wonderful mountain restaurants. This year I am looking forward to skiing some new resorts, meeting more friends and helping Ski Club members experience my favourite activities. When I am not dreaming about, or planning, my next ski trip I live in the quiet Hampshire downlands, keeping fit for next season swimming, cycling, walking and playing the occasional game of tennis.
"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 started skiing late but there was no turning back and haven't missed a year since then! It all began in Austria before trying the big French resorts and several in North America. Soldeu in Grandvalira has become a big favourite with its huge ski area centred on this sociable little village.
Leading provides a great chance for a few extra weeks on the snow and an opportunity to share the passion with like minded people!
Married to Karen with two children (one boarder and one skier) I love being in the mountains.
My first taste of skiing was on a school trip to Scotland. The weather was challenging but I certainly caught the bug I followed this up soon after with a holiday with a friend. What memories… two 16 year olds away from home on a skiing holiday in Hinterglemm, Austria. There was an abundance of snow and we danced on the tables in our ski boots after the last run down!
That was all along time ago but my love for the mountains and skiing has never diminished and now the children have grown up I can take advantage to get away skiing more often; enjoying the slopes, the scenery and meeting new people.
My other passion is squash though I have to say the standard is not that high as I only took it up a few years ago.
I am looking forward to seeing you in resort.
