Born and brought up in the Yorkshire Dales where my love for the outdoors started.
I visited the French Alps aged 20 and fell in love with all that it had to offer. My wife and I along with our two girls moved out to the Alps 18 years ago and we started our business owning and running a Skiing/Summer chalet.
I am also a fully qualified International Mountain Leader (IML). I have skied, climed and hiked throughout the Alps as well as the Pyrenees, Norway, Canada and Himalayas.
I have now skied over 20 seasons and still get excited when the first snow falls in Autumn.
HI there, Im a professional ski instructor, off piste guide, performance coach and love my job!
With my family we have been living here in the Tarentaise Valley for over 14 years now and loving every minute.
The day job is rather fun, skiing and developing performance in an off piste environment and providing safety awareness for our clients and friends. Seeing all develop, smiling and having fun is fabulous.
We live in the heart of the valley surrounded by amazing ski resorts, some of the best France has to offer. I love taking photos for friends and clients to give them the ever lasting memories of tremendous days off piste skiing or backcountry adventures in my beautiful office.
Please have a look at some of the videos we have and kit reviews we are using for our adventures.
