    38 - Dan Egan - US Skiing Hall of Famer, 30 Years in a White Haze

    This week I have a great interview that I did with Dan Egan, US ski hall of famer and author of a new skiing book '30 years in a white haze' which you can find here https://www.white-haze.com


    Dan has featured in numerous Warren Miller ski movies and runs his own ski camps in the US and Europe www.skiclinics.com


    We chat about all things skiing, growing up in Boston, skiing as a kid and then growing up and coaching them, polar exploration, Mount Elbrus and much more.


    This was a great interview and I hope you enjoy listening to it.

    37 - Peter Kuwall Part 2, British Alpine Ski School Chatel, BASI Trainer

    Welcome to episode 37 of The Ski Instructor Podcast and part 2 of this interview with Peter Kuwall.  I had so much to talk to PK about that I had to extend this interview across two episodes.


    We carry on our interview and talk about the effects of Brexit, transcendent performance, his time on the BASI board and the long awaited living in a barn story. 


    If you want to get in touch with PK, you can contact him at www.britishskischool.com/chatel

    36 - Peter Kuwall - British Alpine Ski School, Châtel (part 1)

    Welcome to episode 36 of The Ski Instructor Podcast and one that I have been looking forward to since I first began drawing up my list of people I wanted to speak to.

    Peter Kuwall is my guru, a guy who has probably forgotten more about skiing than I will ever know.


    We talk about how he came up in the industry, the boom years of Scottish skiing, how teaching and mechanical engineering relate and the old French technical test that was the forerunner to the Eurotest.


    I always love chatting to PK and i think it really comes out in this interview.  If you want to find him you can catch him at www.britishskischool.com/chatel


    Happy listening

    35 - John Greenwood - Silksworth Dry Ski Centre

    Welcome to episode 35 of the ski instructor podcast which will be the episode that takes it past 50,000 downloads.  I'm a bit late publishing this one, I've been out recording podcasts and generally doing other stuff not related to skiing.


    This week, I had the chance to record a lovely interview with John Greenwood, who runs the Silksworth Dry Ski Centre in the North East of England https://www.everyoneactive.com/centre/silksworth-sports-complex-and-ski-slope/


    We had a great chat covering topics as diverse as school ski trips to Norway, quirks to teaching on a dry slope, ski prep for dry slope skiing and load of other stuff in-between.


    You can reach John at https://www.facebook.com/john.greenwood.16


    It's a good interview with good energy.  I hope you like it.

    Welcome to episode 33 of The Ski Instructor Podcast.


    I recently had the opportunity to speak with Federico Sollini from Subzero Coaching in Zermatt.  Fede runs ski instructor training and physical performance coaching and has worked at high levels with professional athletes as well as aspiring ski instructors.


    We talk at length on topics such as why national instructor instructor systems develop in the way that they do, the work that he does at Subzero and blending agility and strength in skiing.


    I really enjoyed chatting to Fede and you can reach him at www.subzerocoaching.com


    Happy listening

A great listen for skiers and snow lovers

Decided to listen after hearing Dave a couple of times on the ski podcast. At first I thought it would be aimed at instructors and quite technical but actually, although there are some coaching and technical discussions, I have found conversation is generally about life in the alps or life stories. Feels like a conversation at times that would start on the chair lift and continue until you’ve reached the bar. The interviews are insightful and interesting and the interview technique allows the guests share their insights with little agenda/leading. An absolute must listen. Look forward to each episode

Excellent podcast - some stand out interviews

Came across this as a former ski pro and colleague of a few of the people in interview. It rekindled my passion for coaching and brought me up to speed with current thinking and the sport’s evolution.

It’s relaxed, informative and goes into real depth. Anybody who is looking for strong opinion and insight will glean a lot from listening to this. Great work!
