I grew up in Northern Ireland and learned to ski at a young age on a tiny little dry ski slope near my family home. That dry slope is now a car park, but the love of skiing that it instilled in at least one little guy is still going strong.
I moved on from that small patch of plastic and joined a local race club, where skiing quickly became a pretty big part of my life. I raced for years and got to experience some pretty cool places and things, and even got to represent my country at the Youth Olympics and World Championships.
I eventually told myself I needed to go back to the real world, grabbed myself a degree in History and a post grad in Sports Management, but when I did settle into office life, it didn’t quite live up to the thrills of being in the mountains. Fast forward a few years and the office job is long gone, instead you can find me in Zermatt, working for Summit!
