I skied as a child which gave me the bug to follow the snow around the world from Canada to New Zealand before studying the French language at the University de Savoie in Chambery.

I then set about training for my ski instructor top level qualifications in Switzerland and France and finally settling, down in the valley from Val d'Isere.

From my experience as a BASI Trainer, I'm well versed in high level technical skiing but my forte lies in family ski teaching and keeping you all entertained!

Can't wait to see you on the slopes!
