fay mackman ski instructor

I want to share everything I know about skiing with you.

With over a decade of teaching (13 years to be exact) in the French & Italian Alps, the Espace Mont Blanc is my back garden (for reals, I live in the Chamonix Valley)

I have extensive experience in the resorts of Chamonix, Courmayeur, La Thuile and Pila I can offer complete beginners a fun experience of learning or advanced skiers an amazing off-piste powder day.

Over the years I have got to know the locals and have 'insider' knowledge on the best places to eat, drink and rent equipment. With Europe's highest mountain in constant view, time in the heart of the Alps has to be skied to be believed!

My Story

Starting young.

I have been skiing for a long time, I know what its like to be a beginner and also how to teach one.

I was four when I was lucky enough to start skiing. I spent a week learning to do the basics, and to this day continue to improve each time I take to the slopes. Constantly learning and improving is what I love about skiing. From the snow plough to parallel turns, to powder turns its all fun.

Always Learning.

Even as an instructor I enjoy getting technical about my own performance.  From my first family ski trip I have been addicted to skiing. Now with over 10 years experience teaching skiing I feel I can offer any level of skier helpful hints and tips in a fun way to make your ski performance more rewarding. With an outdoor education diploma, being outside is where I love to be and teaching others how to have fun in the outdoors is my passion.


The Great Outdoors.

Being in the mountains among nature is my favourite place...I am always playing outside. Canoeing, climbing, sailing, surfing, biking, and of course skiing are all massive passions of mine. In the summer I am qualified to teach a number of the above activities and enjoy nothing more than passing on knowledge to others that in doing so, allows them to enjoy being active outdoors. I studied Outdoor Education at college and since I was 16 have been teaching all abilities a wide variety of sports, always outdoors, always having fun.
