Our ski specialists

Meet our ski specialists. They all share a passion for skiing and would love to share their enthusiasm and experience with you. They have all spent time in the mountains and know exactly why you want to head to the slopes yourselves. We are continually adding to our ski hotels, chalets and resorts and each time we do we make sure a specialist has been out to experience it first hand.

Since I first threw myself down a mountain when I was just 4, skiing has always been a part of my life - it hasn’t just been vacations, but has also featured heavily in my time at university, my social life and my job. After a season in Val d’Isère, the thought of not skiing all the time was difficult to stomach so now I try to save up my annual leave for as many ski trips as I can as I just cannot get enough time on the slopes. That said, I think there is a lot to be said for all other aspects of a ski vacation, from a cosy fire in a chocolate box chalet, the delicious food and, of course, the wild après ski.

There’s no place like home”, in my view, couldn’t be more wrong!  I am very fortunate to have traveled to many Countries as a result of my mother’s wanderlust! Whether it’s camper vanning around New Zealand, soaking up the vibrant Cuban culture or dancing on the tables in La Folie Douce. Not that I need any encouragement now, I most certainly have the travel bug!  The mountains are where I feel most at home and skiing is an integral part of my life. My passion for the slopes only grew stronger following my season is Val d’Isère, 2009 – I had the time of my life!

I was introduced to the slopes by my parents at the age of 6, I wouldn’t say I loved it initially, there were definitely some tears at ski school, however this changed soon after. I decided to do a ski season in Val d’Isère in 2005/2006 and was lucky enough to have amazing conditions and discovered my passion for off piste, skiing the Col Pers Le Monal in St Foy and completing the Tarentaise Tour. I began ski instructing in Italy while studying at University which I thoroughly enjoyed. Since then I have skied extensively in the Alps, my favorite resort is still Val d’Isère though!

My love for skiing started at a young age with many a family vacation in Austria and Italy. However after University I decided to briefly postpone life in the real world and opted for a ski season in Val d'Isère where my love for the mountains grew even more. Both in the summer and winter, I choose the mountains over any other vacation destination, and although I have been lucky enough to tick off a number of resorts there are still many more left on the bucket list.

I think I have finally taken a turn after more than 20 years of skiing and would no longer classify myself a fair-weather skier! Whilst rosé in the sunshine will always be appealing I love the mountains whatever the weather. I hope because my skiing is improving! I have been fortunate enough to have worked for companies who think it is important to ski the mountains as well as sell the mountains so I have skied lots of European resorts – many off the beaten track that I would not have heard of otherwise. Hopefully my skiing adventures will continue for years to come!

I'm not a fair weather skier, I'll ski/board in anything! Having worked 10 seasons in Europe and skied in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the States, I've had some pretty amazing experiences! I've heli-skied in Italy and skied down the ‘Vallée Blanche’ at midnight, equipped with a harness and ropes under the light of a full moon! Before joining Scott Dunn, I had my own chalet company in Morzine for 5 years. I loved the interaction with my guests and thrived on making their vacation the best!

Being a Kiwi you would have thought that I had experienced snow while growing up but that wasn’t the case for me, I never saw snow until 2002, when I found myself working a winter season for Scott Dunn. I have been lucky enough to have worked 11 winter seasons in both the European Alps and New Zealand. What is great about this is that is does mean I have been lucky enough to visit most of our Scott Dunn winter resorts both here and more recently in Canada and the USA.
