Fin McDonald

Instructor

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 ⛷
