I first took to the slopes of the Lecht aged 4 and I’ve been hooked on skiing ever since. I completed my first full season in Whistler in 07/08, gaining my instructors qualifications, going on to teach across Scotland and Italy. After completing my degree I then travelled to New Zealand, exploring resorts like Treble Cone and Cardrona before returning to the UK to share my knowledge & experiences as part of the Ski Independence Reservations Team.

Interesting fact:

The world’s first ski chairlift was opened in Sun Valley, Idaho in 1936.

What inspires you?

I love it when first-time skiers phone in to enquire for next season following their first experience of skiing. For those that catch it the ski bug is universal and no matter what your ability level is, a ski holiday is never a bad idea.

What's your favourite resort, and why?

Fernie blew me away when I skied a few days there in spring. It’s a little bit like travelling back time back in time…but that’s a good thing. Fernie goes at its own pace and for me it’s all about the relaxed friendly vibes and good skiing which the resort and town has in abundance.

My next trip:

I would love to check out Red Mountain and Whitewater in British Columbia…I've heard nothing but good things and the ski terrain looks like a whole lot of fun!
