Julian Griffiths

Julian Griffiths
Julian Griffiths started skiing in 1982, age eight. Skiing became a family obsession. A stint racing in his teens led to coaching roles and a decision to pursue a career as a ski instructor. He is now the founder, owner and boss of European Snowsport (ES).

In 1994 Julian became the youngest to pass the British Associations of Ski Instructor’s level 4 exam. Julian then enjoyed a ten-year career as an examiner and trainer of ski instructors. He now holds the top Swiss, Italian and Irish qualifications. Before Verbier, Julian worked as a ski instructor in New Zealand, Australia, The United States, France and Scotland.

Julian founded ES in 2003 after seeing a gap in the market for a high-level ski school. One that offered the sort of customer experience he’d seen outside Europe. This remains the mission. Julian is an innovator, lateral thinker and loves to teach skiing. He can be booked throughout the season in any ES resort.

    We had Julian guide us for 5 days in Verbier and loved every minute. What was particularly great was not only the expert skiing tips but also his knowledge on the region. He was also super helpful at restaurant booking and extremely chivalrous carrying my skis! We were there as a family for the busy half term week and Julian managed to find us several quieter spots which was well received.
    Thank you Julian for making our holiday very special.
