Hello, I am Ben and I'm lucky enough to be a ski instructor! I use a no-stress, supportive approach to all levels of ability. As formentioned I use a no-stress, supportive approach to all levels of ability, apapting my lessons to get the best thrills, progression and enjoyment. I find it is imperitive to choose the right slopes to develop skiing skills or I can take you off-piste or through the terrain park to discover my favourite playgrounds. We'll learn how to respect the mountain and be safe. I have a lot of experience of working with children and have great fun making sure I get the balance of fun and learning just right to keep them hooked on skiing. I use apapted teaching techniques to get the same result with bigger kids and even kids aging over 50+. All while being inspired by the panoramic views the mountain have to offer. My background... I have skied since I was 6, enjoying holidays and trips each year. Having studied Physical eduaction and sport coaching sceinces at universtity, with an independent study centre around skiing. I found a quick transition to teaching skiing and to begin my experinces as an instructor. I now have taught skiing all over the world most recently completing a season in Australia. I am trained in Canadian Snowsports Instructors Association and a member of their education team. The CSIA teaching ethos revolves around a student centred learning theory. A philosophy I agree with and subsequently use in my teaching method. I am qualified in apline skiing, freestyle skiing, and adaptive snowsports. Adaptive being my latest but perhaps my most forfilling. In the 3 years teaching adaptive lessons, I have experince in teaching those with visual and audio impairments, cognaitive challenges and a lot of the other alternative abilities and disablities. I do not own my own sitski but I am qualified to teach ski with someone who is bound to one. I also have experience as a ski race coach. As a private instructor, I have a lot of flexibility to tailor your session exactly to your needs - hourly rates, corporate lessons and other tailor made lesson schedules and prices are all available upon request. Excellent with all abilities Great with beginners Patient with improvers Fantastic with experts Brilliant local knowledge

What to expect in a lesson When starting a session with me you can expect to be asked about your skiing history and goals. Don't worry if you don't know what these are, we will have a discussion to help you find out what you need and want from the session. There is no test of ability or pressure added, but through these conversations and some skiing we will come up with an action plan for our session(s). Sometimes its as easy as having fun, or being guided to a top lunch spot. Other times, clients have more technical aims. Regardless, the session will be tailored to your needs as an individual and not to a pre-planned agenda of mine. During the session you can learn from demonstration, explanation, practice and video. You can follow me, be followed or be told where to meet and pick your own route down. The style of the session is flexible to suit your learning styles, needs and abilities so you can expect to get what you want! We'll ski the best routes, with good chat and lots of fun. and usually you get to skip lift lines and entre ski school lines instead!
