About the 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 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.

I currently live part of the year in Granada, Spain – my 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 build websites (just like this one) for a living and I enjoy the challenge of turning an idea into a reality that positively impacts people around the world.

I love to hike in the mountains, play ice hockey twice a week with my local team and hit the slopes whenever I can 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.
