For the last 5 years I have helped millions have more fun skiing.

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

I've been skiing since 2007 - when I joined a school ski trip and I 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 new and advancing 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 millions of others would. That was the start of NewToSki.com

Wether you're completely new to skiing or you've been skiing for years - you'll find engaging and actionable advice from our wonderful team of expert skiers and ski instructors
