    I first skied at Glenshee on a fine Scottish winter’s day in 1982 and was immediately hooked. Luckily for me, during the early eighties I lived in Rome and spent many happy weekends skiing with friends in the easily accessible resorts of the Abruzzi mountains. I love Italian style, culture and language and travel there as often as I can. I have also been fortunate to live overseas in India and Egypt. For most of my career I worked as a government press officer, first at the Scottish Office and then at Energy and Trade and Industry. I currently work at an Edinburgh secondary school, doing my best to narrow the poverty-related attainment gap alongside a dedicated team of colleagues. I am relatively new to the Ski Club of Great Britain having joined through Mountain Tracks, my favourite ski touring holiday company. I am very much looking forward to skiing with many of you over the coming seasons.

    Before I discovered skiing winter seemed so depressing. On a whim I signed up for lessons at the Rossendale dry slope. A year later I skied in the mountains for the first time. Wow, how could it be simultaneously warm in the sun AND snowy? That was more than 30 years ago but I still get that same sense of wonder on blue sky days. What has changed is technique and equipment. I can remember up-unweighting, down-unweighting and lift queue waiting, to name a few. Now we just roll on to those edges. For me the Club is all about meeting people for skiing and for the all-important apres-ski debrief. I’ve skied most large European resorts and a fair number in North America. The most obscure has to be the Arizona Snowbowl! I try to keep fit by cycling, circuit training and hill walking. In the summer I enjoy motorcycle touring. I love walking in the Alps particularly in the Italian Dolomites. I’ve recently come back to the joys of sailing, this time on a flotilla yacht rather than in a dinghy.

    Dates in resort: From: 04/01/2020 To: 18/01/2020
    Tignes in December, Zermatt in January then lets see - aiming to ski far and wide with Ski Club member groups and sharing safe but adventurous skiing, finding the best snow, the best stops and hidden gems in the mountains. I'm one of many ex-leaders aiming to ensure the new reps service is still able to support great, all mountain, member skiing as seamlessly as possible. Keen to ski with all that want to share what makes our club great :) I am a volunteer.

    Dates in resort: From: 18/01/2020 To: 01/02/2020
    I've skied nearly 150 resorts in Europe, North America and Asia, love skiing both sunny pistes and deep fresh powder in the trees and have taken professional courses in Canada. The Ski Club has provided me opportunities and challenges and I’ve been privileged to enjoy fantastic skiing with a huge number of members and it’s always good to see familiar faces and to make new friends. I love the mountains, snow, wildlife and true wilderness and have spent time in both the Antarctic and Arctic and am always looking for the next wilderness experience. Last summer I joined a conservation group in the Altai Republic conducting research into the snow leopard, its habitat and environment. This winter I will spent a week with a group in Slovakia studying wolfs, lynx and wildcats while snowshoeing in a National Park in the Carpathian Mountains. I look forward to sharing some great skiing with members and, as a keen photographer, to getting some stunning pictures.

    Dates in resort: From: 18/01/2020 To: 01/02/2020
    I have loved skiing since school lessons at Hillend and day trips to Glenshee- and since then lots of great holidays with family and friends in Europe, USA and NZ. I'm really looking forward to helping as a ski leader and meeting club members to share days out on the slopes. In the last few years I have very much enjoyed ski touring as an entirely different experience; and away from the mountains I enjoy running, golf, cycling. Ski Leader since December 2015

    Dates in resort: From: 01/02/2020 To: 15/02/2020
    Skiing has been my passion since being introduced to the sport in Andermatt at the age of 3. I have been a Ski Club Leader since the 70's and been both a Freshtracks and resort leader in many different places. I love skiing off-piste when I can but just being on snow with others who enjoy the mountains, preferably in the sun, is fine by me. After skiing I head back to a fairly busy retired life on the Isle of Arran

    Dates in resort: From: 01/02/2020 To: 15/02/2020
    I love being in the mountains, the skiing, the scenery, the light.,the atmosphere and ambiance of alpine villages. Skiing is such a fantastic sport, exhilarating and exciting and yet sociable. It can be challenging, pushing yourself to tackle that gnarly couloir, or maybe taking it easy just cruising , enjoying the view and thinking about that lovely lunch spot. My skiing experience is enhanced by sharing with like minded and passionate Ski club members. For many years I was a ski club member before I became a leader. I really get a kick out of meeting new people and old friends and sharing the fun. My favourite resort is Zermatt. It has everything, the only downside being the expense. Outside of skiing I enjoy photography, golf , dancing, classic cars and motorbikes. For a crust I run a residential property company. I really look forward to meeting you on the slopes. Martin

    Been skiing since a schoolboy and love it as much now as when I first started. Having done instruction, racing, snowboarding and ski ballet over the years, these days I prefer to ski off piste wherever possible and enjoy the freedom that brings to exploring the whole mountain.

    Having wandered the world with a backpack for several years in my 20’s, I found myself staying with friends in the French Alps one winter with nothing much planned and simply fell in love with everything about the “skiing lifestyle”. Doing everything I could to prolong the visit – including washing thousands of pans, shoveling tons of snow and living in a broom cupboard! – I realised I was hooked. Alas, real life intervened and back to Blighty to pursue a career in IT, with skiing trips a much longed-for highlight. A lovely FreshTracks week with an awesome Ski Club Leader and Guide persuaded me to have a go at the leader course myself and, well, here I am! I am keen on most mountain sports, but apart from skiing I love to hike, canoe, paraglide, Via Ferrata, ride my MTB and get in a bit of Alpinism too.

    Dates in resort: From: 14/03/2020 To: 28/03/2020
    I've been skiing since 1990. It all started for me on 1 meter skis in Les Arcs with the 'Ski Evolutif' method and since then I have enjoyed every minute on the slopes. I really enjoy off-piste and day touring, particularly at Chamonix, Engelberg and Zermatt. A hearty lunch is essential preferably on a sunny terrace with a clear view of the beautiful mountain scenery. I've been very fortunate to lead in Zermatt for several seasons and can't wait to return this season. I'm looking forward to meeting and helping Ski Club members get the most out of what is in my view one of the world's best resorts. When the snow has melted, I enjoy mountain walking with my wife and teenage daughter.

    Dates in resort: From: 14/03/2020 To: 28/03/2020
    Skiing is my favourite sport, but any excuse to be in the mountains is good! I learned to ski in Scotland, so the bigger mountains and generally better weather of the Alps is always a treat. After years of family ski holidays with my four children, I joined Ski Club. I really appreciate being able to ski with others of a similar standard, and using local guides to access the best available off piste routes. There's usually some people I've skied with before, and some new folks - a good formula!

    Dates in resort: From: 28/03/2020 To: 11/04/2020
    It's a joy to be out in the snow with like-minded skiers & ‘boarders: Whether cruising a favourite piste as the sun goes down or carving fresh tracks through a hidden powder stash my goal is always to ensure that by the end of the day everyone has had fun, felt super welcome and enjoyed some skiing that ‘s just right.…of course every afternoon in Zermatt should conclude with laughter and smiles over a cool beer or warming gluhwien! I've been skiing and snowboarding since my teenage years and love the fresh air, exhileration and banter on the lifts too! At home I'm an Art Director, working in Animation, photography & personalised books you can take a peek at www.edtaylor.co.uk Look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new in Zermatt this Spring!

    Dates in resort: From: 28/03/2020 To: 11/04/2020
    I learnt to ski and climb whilst at school in Snowdonia and have been a passionate skier ever since. I worked three seasons for ski Thomson and since then have spent as much time as possible in the mountains in between running my clothing business. I am also a member of the Kandahar ski club and am a keen amateur racer competing in club races, the AICC and the Inferno. My biggest passion though is off piste. I love meeting new and old friends and helping them get the most out of their skiing holidays.
