Meet The Head Coach!

I feel im the luckiest person on the planet to be doing a job I love so much! Skiing has always been my passion and this passion seems to be growing more every year. Even though my main focus are my athletes , there is still nothing more I love doing than skiing fresh pow in the backcountry with my friends. However I have fully dedicated myself to this job as head coach and manager for the British Freeski team and the biggest reason for this is I truly believe 101% in my athletes and what they are capable of! Over the last couple of years we have shown the ski industry that some of the worlds best Freeskier’s are from the UK, now its time to show the world!
