I’m BASI2 qualified so as well as volunteering most Saturday mornings, I’m also part of the Sharks international instructor team. I’m also lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks a year working for the Ski2 ski school in Italy. I first skied aged 15 on a school trip, but have done 75% of all my skiing ever in the last 6 years – since I joined Sharks Ski Club with my 2 girls.  I started instructing after Norman invited me to do the SSE level 1 course in 2011. Like many people, I’m most at home on piste and love skiing like a hooligan on a quiet red run, but skiing off piste is great fun, so for me it depends on the conditions of the day as to which I prefer.   I currently ski on some Salomon Rockette 90’s.  They’re all mountain skis so help me out in most conditions pretty well.  However, I’ve got my eye on some Head Magnums or Salomon X Drive’s as I need to push my performance on piste to get good enough to attempt my BASI3.  My favourite ski resort is Champoluc in Italy – Dave and I got married there in 2010, so it has some special memories as well as some great skiing and empty pistes.  (Shhh, don’t tell everyone!)
