Inside Out Skiing is a unique ski school with a new concept in ski teaching offering
"Ski coaching all year round".
We operate all year round at London's indoor snowdome, The Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead, and in a range of resorts in the Alps. We offer skills-based coaching and year-round development of your skiing using the same team of ski coaches. With regular coaching our clients see significant progress in their skiing, developing a wider set of skills and much greater confidence to ski all the mountain.
Many of our clients train with us on a regular basis, so coaching sessions at the Snow Centre and in the Alps are very sociable events. Check out a video interview which describes what we're all about.
The ski coaches who work for Inside Out Skiing have trained and qualified through the British Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI) which is recognised by the International Ski Instructors Association (ISIA). We are primarily alpine skiing instructors, which licenses us to teach skiing both on and off-piste. We are all also qualified as Alpine Development Coaches, which is focused on providing regular, long-term coaching to assist skiers in developing their general skiing skills as well as the tools to help junior ski racers in improving their racing technique. We have all taken additional teaching qualifications in other skiing disciplines like telemark or adaptive skiing which has given us a deeper understanding of coaching snowsports.
Scott started skiing at 28, had his first lesson at 41 and wishes he had started earlier on both! After a career of running manufacturing and technology businesses he found that the smiles he got from teaching skiers was much more satisfying than his "real" job. He decided to pursue ski coaching as a full-time role and founded Inside Out Skiing to assist people in developing a lifelong love for skiing. He was the head coach for under 12's at the Hemel ski race club from 2009-14 and has coached several young ski racing athletes who went on to be selected for the British national ski team.
Scott is a Level 3 ISIA Ski Teacher, Level 2 IVSI Alpine Development Coach, Level 2 Telemark Instructor and L1 Adaptive Instructor.
Rob first tried skiing at the age of 12 on a school ski trip and fell in love with the sport, being in the mountains and the camaraderie of ski holidays. He has skied every year since then, working with some of the best ski instructors in the business on his way to his own instructor qualifications. His love of skiing is only matched by the pleasure he gets from teaching. Before Rob discovered a passion for teaching skiing, he worked in education for 15 years, in both management and policy advice positions at several universities and the House of Commons.
Rob is a Level 2 Alpine Instructor, a Level 1 Alpine Development Coach and Level 1 Adaptive Instructor.

"I first started skiing with Inside Out around 7 years ago as a ‘once a year’ skier. Since then, my skiing has improved beyond all recognition, with the practical training being truly excellent. Even more importantly, it’s been a lot of fun and I’ve made many great friends along the way. Going on Inside Out trips is a genuine highlight of my ski year and would recommend them to anyone wanting to improve and at the same time, have a blast. Scott and Rob are top guys"
