Rich Murray - Val d'Isere Ski Instructor

Rich Murray

Ski Instructor, Val d’Isere

My Story

I am a British instructor holding the top BASI ISTD qualification with full French equivalence. I skied a few times as a kid but really fell in love with skiing working a season after I finished University. A stint working as an accountant in the “real world” helped me realise that the mountains were where I belonged.

Since then I have instructed all over the world including North America, New Zealand, and Europe.  I’ve been a full-time instructor in Val d’Isère and Tignes since 2007 and with New Gen since 2010. I feel so lucky to be living, working and sharing my passion for skiing and the mountains. I love both the technical and social sides of skiing. So whether it’s a few hours of technique or a full day on the mountain I’m your man.

When I’m not working you will see me up early for a ski tour.  I love all sports and in the summer I spread my time between the sea and the mountains
I look forward to seeing you in our beautiful resort soon.

Nobody is too good for a lesson. The greatest athletes in any sport have lessons every day and call it coaching.
