Blake started with us a Gap Student five years ago and having completed his entry level BASI Courses made the decision to pursue a career in ski teaching. He has quickly developed into an excellent skier and coach. He also runs our Fast Track Ski Instructor Training Programme and Kids Academy Training Programme. His passion and enthusiasm for skiing and teaching is infectious and we are absolutely delighted to have him on our team.
Sophie Readman is not only a very talented skier but a terrific instructress. To give you a little background Sophie was brought up in Andorra where her parents both worked as instructors. Skiing with the local club from a young age Sophie quickly graduated through the ski ranks and eventually spent 3 years with the British Ski Team. Having retired from ski racing she spent three years at University studying Sports Science before returning to the ski world as an instructress. Needless to say we are delighted to have Sophie with us as part of our ski instruction team.
