Glenn Wellesley is a British ski instructor who has been ski-teaching for over 20 years. His career has taken him all over the world, including the U.S.A and New Zealand. He made the French slopes his winter home in 2003.
Glenn has his full BASI (British Association of Snowsport Instructors) international ski teacher licence with full French equivalence, but many of the skills that set him apart from other ski instructors came as a result of a ski racing injury. Glenn lost the physical strength to ski at race-level using orthodox methods, so he researched the latest techniques in bio-mechanics and sports science to find the easiest, most energy-efficient ways to ski.
The realization and understanding of how psychology and clarity are key factors in sport spurred him on to seek out and emulate World-renowned mentors and leaders in performance coaching.
Glenn is well equipped to help you “get the most without using the most” and to… Ski with Ease™. These performance soft skill coaching methods are tried and tested by elite athletes and will help ease you into the right mindset to get you skiing as quickly as possible.
Roberto qualified as a full international ski instructor and worked in Frances most prestigious resorts now including Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz.

Out of the ski season Roberto is a world traveling sailing and water sports instructor- you will have no shortage of conversation on chairlifts outside of ski technique with our calm and highly polished year round coach.
British born Joey is a dual-qualified ski and snowboard instructor with mountains of experience!

He is fanatical about snowsports and keen to pass on his enjoyment and knowledge. He is great with kids as he has 2 of his own, and has had them skiing as soon as they could walk. We are super pleased to have coaxed Joey back to France and the Portes du Soleil full time this winter.
