I grew up in the north east of England and Scotland until I moved to St.Anton Austria to become both a ski teacher and internationally qualified UIAGM International Mountain Guide, teaching and guiding, skiing, rock and ice climbing and glacier mountaineering.
I set up Piste To Powder Off Piste Skiing in St.Anton Austria which specialises in guided ski adventures with a focus on developing the guests skills in both ski technique and mountain safety. Piste To Powder expanded offering ski adventures to exotic locations around the world from Greenland, Alaska, South America, Russia, Himalayas and Norway. I led these expeditions and loved the combination of wild remote travel and skiing new mountains away from the ski resorts.
The Norwegian program began in 2003 sailing through the fjords and skiing from summit to sea. Amazed by the region of Troms, I bought land and built a lodge to offer guests an all year round base for adventure and comfortable relaxing living in this extraordinary Arctic location. Out of all the many wonderful locations around the world to ski, the Lyngen Alps offered a unique experience found to be second to none.
I'm enthusiastic about mountains and people and driven to deliver a high quality service which will ensure that your visit while at my lodge will be a memorable one.
