Mark Birch

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!

I knew within no time that skiing was the way to go and that I wanted to make it an important part of my career. I started the BASI qualification process in 2004 and I have taught skiing in Switzerland, Italy and back in the UK at Hemel Hempstead before finally gaining the necessary qualifications to teach in France which is where I now live with my family.

I have been skiing in the 3 Valleys for 9 years now and I can honestly say that the 3 Valleys cannot be beaten for its all-round appeal, there is genuinely something for everyone here, a no compromise multi-level ski resort with some truly awesome slopes and easily accessible off-piste for those wanting to venture further afield.

My goal is that everyone I teach enjoys skiing and the learning process as much as I did when I first started and to show you all why I love Courchevel, Meribel and La Tania quite so much.
