Any company is only as good as its key staff and the founders of Ski 2 have a vast experience working in the ski industry and, in particular, working with school and college groups.
Simon Brown holds the UK’s highest level ski instructors qualification – BASI Grade 1 (as well as a PSV driving licence) and has over 20 year’s experience working in the Scottish ski areas, on dry ski slopes in the UK and more recently for one of the UK’s most respected schools ski tour operators, Interski – the leading light in the development of group ski holidays.
Simon was Resorts’ Manager for Interski, responsible for co-ordinating a team of staff to run ski courses for over 10,000 pupils each winter season. He is based in Champoluc for the winter season and in the summer months lives in North Wales with his wife Ruth and their family.
Roger Walker has worked in the ski industry for over 25 years, and until 1998 also worked for the tour operator Interski (in the final years, co-ordinating the sales and marketing of the company’s holidays).
Roger is also a qualified ski instructor – BASI Grade 3, and has spent a number of winters in the Alps on the Interski resort team. He now manages the Ski 2 office in the UK, as well as running Ski 2’s sister company Roger Walker Travel Ltd. – a thriving independent travel agency.
Roger is married with 2 children, both of whom have learnt to ski in Champoluc.
Both Simon and Roger have the aim of running a successful ski tour operation focused on offering quality ski holidays to discerning clients. Their goal is a long term one and their experience and skills ensure that every Ski 2 ski course is a resounding success. We hope that you will trust our commitment and join us soon for what could well be the best ski course that you have ever run.
