A little bit about Ross - Assistant Slope Manager

Ross Staff Member

Name: Ross - Assistant Slope Manager

Disciplines: Ski, Snowboard, Freestyle Ski, Ski Racing, Ice Climbing

Position: Instructor

After learning to ski and board on the hill I quickly came to realise it was something I loved to do.

I’ve been lucky enough to carve out a career as a ski and board instructor before expanding my skill base as an Ice Climbing instructor and Race Coaching for Snow Factor Racing.

Having taken a job with the company 8 years ago as Slope Team Leader and progressed through my teaching qualifications with Snow Factor I’ve now gained my BASI 1 Ski & Snowboard qualifications in addition to my UKCP Ski Freestyle and Race Coaching qualifications too.

It’s great to progress through a company and have them invest in your development, especially when it allows you to do what you love for a living. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else!

Favourite Piece of Equipment

I wouldn’t be without my headphones, I hate riding without them!

Favourite Resort

Ischgl & Canazei in the Austrian Alps – they have huge ski areas with bags of snow & great apres ski.

It was the first big resort I went to so it probably has a lot of sentimental value in it too. That aside, it is a great resort with lots of options to play on and big long runs; plus you can ski into Switzerland too for a bit of the high life!
