About Jim

Working full time as an independent guide organising and leading ski trips anywhere in the world I love what I do. Provided an area is safe and has mountains and snow, it should be visited. All countries skied in have given unforgettable experiences and many have deserved numerous return visits. I telemark and some trips can have up to half the team freeing the heel. The people I have the pleasure in skiing with come from all over the world with the majority being from the UK.

Trips have the same core ingredients, namely:

  • Great people to share the experience with
  • Beautiful mountains with memorable skiing
  • Cultural interest

Brought up in Ballater in the south eastern Cairngorms of Scotland, I had my first contact with mountaineering through my primary school, my parents and the Scouts. I thought it wonderful being in the outdoors in those days and have yet to find anywhere better to spend my time.

I have lived in France since 1994 and share my life with my wife Nathalie and our three children. When not in the mountains I am happy at home with them.
