My name is Fin McDonald and although I have been skiing since leather boots and wooden skis, I have only very recently become an instructor (Basi 1). (Thanks to Arbroath Ski Club)

I want to help others learn “the ways of the force” (hahaha) and to enjoy skiing as much as I do. Oh, and to have a laugh while doing it.

Hope to see you on the slope ⛷

I became a member of the club in 2018 when I was given the opportunity to do my BASI level 1 and become a ski instructor. I have loved skiing since I was little and learnt to ski through a mixture of weekends with my dad at cairngorm and fantastic holidays abroad with family. I have many favourite resorts but a blue sky day at Glenshee is definitely up there.

Hi, my name is Chris. My first love of snowsports is snowboarding but I am slowly being converted to skiing thanks to the Club and the ski academy program.

I am a secondary school teacher through in Dundee and if I am not organising ski trips for the kids I’m planning when I can next get out to Austria for a holiday.
