Twists and turns eh. Little did I think when I was washing dishes straight out of school in a café in Val d'Isére, that 20 years later I would be a top qualified ski and telemark instructor.
Along the way I have detoured into qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, practicing in a number of finance roles, getting married and having two wonderful children, but always in the background has been the lure of the slopes and a passion for free heel skiing.
It had to be done, and so it was. First as a ski instructor in a French ski school, latterly for TDC and now we have our own business. I am also part of the product test team for Ski and Board Magazine.
I have been telemark skiing for 15 years and love nothing more than to find the trigger, the key instruction that is different in every individual that enables them to take that quantum leap forward as a telemark skier.
My passion is definitely for the off-piste. Taking guests telemarking in the Val d'Isere backcountry, to places that they will love and to which they wouldn’t normally go, while giving them instruction that changes their telemark skiing. Brilliant.
I hold the BASI ISTD qualification, their highest, with full French equivalence.
Nicko, your enthusiasm, dedication and energy paid real dividends, and I am really grateful. You’ve re-inspired my Telemarking. Andy Calame
