Luckily for me skiing lessons were part of our PE curriculum, a benefit to growing up in Scotland. I soon spent many Saturdays zipping up and down the button tow on the local dry slope with friends and few years later I got the opportunity to ski in Aviemore on the real stuff. This was an eye-opening experience and I didn’t think it could get any better until a few years later I made it to the Alps.
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.
The Three Valleys is an amazing place to ski, with excellent terrain, no matter what you’re into. I feel there’s a lot I can bring to Sweet, having taught outdoor pursuits for the last 13 years. I love to share my passion for adventure and the outdoors with others and in the summer I can be found on the west coast of Scotland, coaching sea kayaking on the remote islands or guiding groups on multi-day river trips.
Sweet have a great team of like-minded instructors and I am really looking forward to helping people reach their full potential whether they are a first day beginner or an experienced off-piste skier.
