Ski & Snowboard Instructor, Three Valleys

My Story

I learned to ski in Glencoe Scotland, competing with the local ski club for a few years before qualifying as a ski instructor. While working in the USA I tried the new “craze” of snowboarding. I qualified as an instructor on the first snowboard course in Scotland.

In 2007 I started working in The Three Valleys for New Generation and have ever since. I now enjoy introducing everyone to the thrills and excitement of learning to slide on skis or board. I’ll gladly show you some secret spots, a good line through the park or blast down the boardercross.

On my days off I head into the backcountry on skis or split board. I often get asked the favourite place to ski. Meribel has everything you could want in a ski resort but Glencoe is just a wee bit better. Look forward to seeing you on the hill.
