Stuart has been skiing since the age of 4, and began his teaching career at 16. Initially he started training and working at his local dry slope in Hemel Hempstead, and within only a few years had embarked on his decision to develop his qualifications further.
Since 2006 Stuart has specialised as a race coach and holds the ‘International Ski Teacher Diploma’ and ‘Alpine Performance Coach Level 2’. In addition, he qualified in 2005 as a Snowsports Scotland ‘ASSI Tutor’ and has since been delivering ASSI courses throughout the UK. Stuart has also progressed from being BASI L1 trainer (able to deliver Level 1 courses in the UK) to becoming a full Alpine Trainer in November 2014.
Stuart now spends most of his time between the UK and Tignes, France, and continues to develop and deliver many of Ski Focus’ race, instructor training and piste performance courses.
