The Team

Our clients often mention just how friendly and supportive our instructors are.  Nothing seems to be too much trouble and their love of teaching is truly evident from the moment that you meet them. Simply being able to ski and snowboard to a high level isn’t enough to work with Sweet Snowsports, enthusiasm, a sense of fun and a passion for delivering great customer care is essential.

Whether it is a private lessons in Courchevel, children’s ski lessons in La Tania or snowboard lessons in Meribel our instructors will instil in you, the passion for all things snowsports, that they clearly have themselves.

At the age of seven I started skiing in the Scottish Highlands, I wasn’t very good but it wasn’t long until it was all I could ever think about! After years of skiing in Scotland my first overseas trip came as quite a shock as I realised that skiing didn’t always have to involve ice and hurricane strength winds.

I started skiing at the age of 4 at Chatham Ski Centre in Kent where I would later spend time as the head of ski school. After getting the skiing bug my first overseas ski holiday was to Courchevel, the resort that I now think of as my second home.

My skiing career started at the age of about 11 but only lasted a couple of holidays before snowboarding caught my fancy and took me into my 20’s. Then I found skiing again and thankfully my second attempt has been much longer lasting than my first!

My first ski experience at age 13 was a fluke, snowed in near Peebles I found some skis and spent two days using a dry stone wall as a crash mat. But that was it, I was hooked.

This will be my 9th season in the Les Trois Vallée after arriving from Aspen where I spent 8 seasons teaching skiing and snowboarding. Aspen was an eye opener, it attracts all sorts of celebrities which makes for interesting work, at times I felt like a skiing Grazia magazine!

I have instructed skiing for many seasons now and have been lucky enough to have done this in almost every continent. It never fails to amaze me just how global our sport has become and how accessible it is for so many people to enjoy.

Originally from Somerset my first skiing experience was on a school trip to Chatel. I immediately loved it and returned home to harass my parents to send me on the following years trip.

I came to snowboarding a little later in life than I would have liked but after a few holidays my wife and I took the plunge and moved to the mountains full time. 8 years later and I wouldn’t be anywhere else, the Three Valleys are the perfect playground!

I’m new to Sweet this year but I have lived in Courchevel for the past eight seasons, doing many jobs whilst completing my qualifications to teach in France. Along the way I also qualified as a Level 2 Adaptive instructor which is a particular interest generated by my involvement with a local Disability Snowsports club in Glasgow.
