Eilidh holds the highest possible instructor qualification available and is one of very few British female Level 4 ISTD instructors in France.
As an instructor, Eilidh wants to create a safe and fun environment that anyone can learn in, no matter their age or ability. Skiing is a brilliant activity that families, friends and even colleagues should be able to partake in together. It is Eilidh’s goal to make this possible through instructing and guiding, making the mountain experience accessible to all.
Whether it is your 1st or your 100th time skiing, Eilidh will talk to you about what you want to achieve and discuss any potential physical or psychological limitations you may have. She will check that your equipment is set up correctly and that you understand how to best prepare yourselves for the elements. All too often she has seen people put off from skiing because their clothing or equipment just wasn’t quite right.
Knowing the best places to go depending on the conditions is one of the most important jobs as an instructor. Eilidh understands that the cost of a ski instructor can be a daunting investment however it is a very important investment to make. She is happy to work with your budget and will be honest about how much instruction and guiding she can provide you with. She will advise how best to spread her time if there is varying levels in ability within your group or family, and will spread the lessons in the most economical and enjoyable way for you.
Eilidh can also provide private race training to all ages with enough prior warning to book training lanes. Though she is based in the Portes Du Soleil, Eilidh can be mobile almost anywhere around Europe.
key things that can really enhance your trip if you get them right:
Make your instructor aware any limitations you may have, no matter how major or minor. If there are things that need worked on pre-holiday I am happy to advise on this or provide pre skiing training plan.
Proper thermals and Ski socks. Practical mid and outer layers.
Know what fits properly and what is actually right for you (I am also happy to advise on this).
