About Myself

With 26yrs knowledge of the Espace Killy ski area, coupled with numerous years of ski racing experience, I’m sure I can offer you the kind of high quality ski lesson, coaching or Off Piste guiding that you’re looking for.

I’m fully qualified and hold the BASI Level 4 ISTD qualification with full French Equivalence.

Following a junior school ski trip to Italy, I trained and competed regularly on the dry ski slope scene in the UK. The highlight of this was becoming England Junior Champion and representing my country on numerous occasions.
This led me onto Val D’Isere for the 91/92 season where I continued to train and compete on the international FIS circuit for the following 2 seasons.

I immediately fell in love with the resort and decided to make it my home and moved here full time up until 1999.
During that time and following on from my earlier Alpine racing seasons I competed briefly in moguls and then started to spend most of my time exploring the amazing off Piste that the Espace Killy has to offer.
I continued to regularly ski in Val D’Isere amongst other resorts the world over and since 2012 I’ve been based back here full time

Nowadays whenever possible I’ll be making the most of the awesome Off-piste that the Espace Killy has to offer including plenty of ski touring.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or queries you may have regarding your upcoming stay in Val D’Isere, whether it be skiing related or if you just need some advise on the resort, I’m happy to help.
