BASI Level 2
BASI Level 3 Mountain Safety
Olly was 2 years old when he first put skis on at Verbier’s Les Esserts piste in 1995 and has returned ever since.
Keen off-piste skiers, his parents met in Verbier, and have passed on their enthusiasm for the sport, and knowledge of the best lines to Olly. He knows this backcountry extremely well, and when he isn’t teaching is skiing with friends, or the AM team if they can convince him to!Olly studied Politics at Newcastle University and worked on the last two general elections. In 2013 he passed his BASI L2 in Bariloche, Argentina, and is lucky enough to have skied on 3 continents.
Olly has always had a passion for cricket, where he is still a playing member of Marylebone (at Lord’s Cricket Ground); Hurlingham, and also for the Marlborough Blues. He holds the English Cricket Board L2 Coaching Qualification, and spends the summer coaching 6-16 year olds at Chiswick and Latymer, MCC, and Hurlingham Clubs.
Although he is half Australian, he insists that he supports England throughout the Ashes!
