Early Skiing Career

After competing on the European tour and gaining good results at the British Championships, Nick was selected the 1983 British Alpine Ski team. He also continued to study and qualified with the British Association of Ski Instructors passing his grade 1 ISIA exam in 1985 with a double merit. Nick remained part of the British ski team from 1982/83 season through to 1989, racing in Europe, North America and collecting two national titles and a string of international accolades along the way however injury got in the way of further success.

“I had hoped to keep racing for many more years however this was not possible because of a recurring back injury. Sadly I had to quit the Olympic team of 1998 after an attempt to come back from my injury lasted only a matter of weeks.”

Nick’s whole life had revolved around skiing and the fact that he was no longer able to ski race was a huge blow.

“Skiing was all I knew, the team was like a second family to me and my ski racing days were an era that I didn’t want to end”

However Nick soon found himself in a new role in the commenatry box more...
