John started skiing at the age of seven and it quickly became his favourite activity. After a few years of racing in the local league he swapped to the more playful art of freestyle skiing. If you ask him nicely he may show you some really “old school” ski-ballet tricks. Being a native Norwegian he immediately felt at home in the mountainous Alps after his first visit, and has been skiing them for twenty-five years.
He has also worked six winter seasons in the Alps.
