Alex is a true mountain boy! He grew up skiing on these very mountains strapping on his first pair of skis at the tender age of 3yrs and racing at 7yrs. Alpine skiing, ski touring and snowboarding became a part of daily winter life and after earning his degree in Engineering to get a “proper” job, it felt only natural to stay on the skis where his passion truly lay and to pursue a career on the snow instead!
Alex has been teaching in Morzine since 2000 but he also spent a season in New Zealand for a change of scenery. During the summer Alex is glued to his bike, busy running his road cycling business Yellovelo.

"just a quick note to say thanks for the lessons that Alex provided for our daughter Kate this week. All went very well and with the combination of good tuition at the start of the week and fine weather, she progressed to skiing most easy red runs throughout the resort by day six. Pretty good achievement for a six year old having her first experience on snow - and it was all fun. Thank you Alex!"
