A bit about Kate:

Born & bred in Brighton Kate did the grown-up thing and got a job working for American Express. She soon realised that she belonged in the mountains and swapped the seaside for the snow.

Kate got her first qualification in Vail, Colorado, starting off in the British system.
Ready to teach, she came straight to Verbier where she took her next exams in the Canadian system.

Not content with training in two systems, she then headed to New Zealand and completed their entire system too.



In the summers Kate has kept herself busy doing everything from working on a yacht in the Mediterranean to ski instructing in New Zealand, now she can usually be found in the Lake District enjoying the English country side while pulling a few pints.

Recently she picked up the books and weights and is now a qualified Personal trainer, so if you need any advice on how to get fit ready for skiing, she´s your girl!
