British Ski Instructors in Courchevel & La Tania
Why You Should Choose Us
Ski and Snowboard
Having skied recreationally in Scotland from a young age, I took a year off in 2001 to go skiing in the Alpes for a season and travel in Japan for a summer. To date, the lure of the Alpes is just as strong.
I qualified as a ski instructor, under the British Ski system (BASI) in 2005 and gained French equivalence at the same time. Since this date, I have taught all levels of skiing and snowboarding including training would-be instructors for the BASI Ski Instructor courses. In the summer I run Glasgow Bike Tours, which involves sightseeing in Glasgow by bike.
I started working for Momentum Snowsports in 2007 and enjoy the extra dimension this brings to my skiing and snowboarding. I look forward to meeting you on the piste and sharing this enthusiasm with you.
Ski and Snowboard
Ben is from Dublin but he moved to Scotland at the age of 8 and has skied every winter since then.
He started teaching skiing in Andorra in 1998, and in 2002 moved to Courchevel. He knows the resort inside out and will help you find the best skiing on the mountain! Ben is also a passionate mountaineer and spends much of his free time climbing and skiing in the spectacular Vanoise national park that surrounds Courchevel.
In the summer months he runs a sea kayak school in Dartmouth on the stunning south Devon coast (www.seakayakdevon.co.uk) Ben has a friendly personality and an infectious enthusiasm for skiing; whether you are a youngster keen to have fun or you are looking to improve your technique so you can relax and enjoy yourself, Ben has just what you need to help you have the best ski holiday ever!”

Ski and Snowboard
I have been skiing since I was a teenager after a trip with school and that was it, I was hooked!
I made my way to Courchevel as a musician and started working away at the BASI instructor exams.
I now work as an instructor for Momentum. I am still as passionate about skiing and ski teaching as I have ever been and look forward to sharing that with you on the slopes in Courchevel.
I have been skiing since I was 5 years old and love nothing more than exploring the mountains with like-minded individuals. I currently work in the bookings and administration department for Momentum Snowsports and am training towards becoming a fully certified ski instructor like Ben, Keith and Freddy. I have spent a lot of time in Courchevel and look forward to helping you book ski or snowboard lessons with one of our fabulous instructors or answer any questions that you may have about lessons or the resort in general.
Hi I’m Sophie the Admin and Bookings Manager here at Momentum Snowsports. I’ve worked for Momentum since 2017 from the UK office based in Devon.
Living in Devon I have a love of the outdoors and have swapped the slopes of Courchevel for hiking the South West Coast Path and wild swimming as often as I can.
Between Livi and myself we will be your first port of call when booking your ski or snowboard lessons and we’re here to help if you have any queries whilst you are in resort.
I look forward to hearing from you and booking in your lessons.
