I started skiing at the age of 11 and never thought it would be any more than a hobby. But after deciding university wasn’t for me I booked onto the New Gen instructor training course here in Courchevel, that was in 2012. Since then I’ve continued to work on my technique taking my exams whilst I gained some experience working in Italy and Switzerland. But in 2017 I returned to the 3 Valleys and it’s great to be back.
Teaching here is a dream with it’s numerous green and blue runs make it ideal for beginners and intermediates. As well as plenty of steeper pistes and some great off-piste for those more advanced. I love nothing more than clipping into my race skis and really laying them over, getting as much reaction from the skis as I can muster. Don’t get me wrong I love all kinds of skiing. Whether it’s off-piste, bumps or jumps, but it’s getting those big angles which have always been my forte. As well as skiing I enjoy surfing, cycling, slacklining and more recently skateboarding. You’re never too old to learn something new.
Fancy a private lesson with Rory on your next holiday?
