About Founder & Editor

Hi – I’m Simon, I started New To Ski to write about everything I wish someone had told me when I started learning to ski.

I started skiing on a school trip in 2005 and have continued to practice and develop my skills.

I wanted a platform to share my journey and knowledge with other new skiers so I launched New To Ski in 2018 to help first-time skiers have more fun on the slopes and get out and explore the mountains safely.

It was hard to find reliable, well-written information about skiing organized in one accessible place. I decided if I had a need for it then others would too. That was the start of NewToSki.com

Since then we have grown to be a trusted resource for over a million skiers to plan their ski trips each year and learn more about every aspect of skiing.

I love visiting my sister in Granada, Spain – her local ski resort, Sierra Nevada is the most southerly in Europe & on a clear day you can see the sea while skiing. You can find some fresh snow in the morning and be swimming in the Mediterranean sea that afternoon.

I love to hike in the mountains, play ice hockey, and hit the slopes to improve my skiing. I hope you enjoy browsing our site and find what you need. If you need any help or want to get in touch – contact us.
