I learnt to ski when I was a wee nipper and have never really looked back. A politics degree wasn’t really going to change my love of snow sports so I decided to make the move to the Highlands for good and build a career teaching in the outdoors.
I have worked winters on Cairngorm Mountain ever since and have had the pleasure to meet amazing people from all over the world and work alongside some of the most fantastic instructors. My summers used to be taken up with coaching tennis and I still keep up with this, but I suppose my midlife discovery (definitely not a crisis!) is Mountain Biking. There’s not many activities you can do with friends that create the feelings of excitement, freedom, adrenalin, peace and achievement all in one ride.
