I first skied with the Ski Club of Great Britain on an instruction holiday in 1987. Having gained some skiing proficiency, plus plenty of après-ski skills, I became a rep for the organisation in 1992. Now I spend most of my time repping, which puts me in the enviable position of skiing for most of each season. This year, for instance, I'll be spending most of January in Grindelwald, Switzerland (my 13th consecutive year in the resort) and the second part of the season in Méribel, France (my fifth consecutive year there). Away from skiing, I spend most of my leisure time trying to keep fit with a range of outdoor activities, and have recently had the opportunity to learn to fly helicopters.
