Jaz has a humility that hides his experience and status in the ski teaching world, combined with an ability to cut through complexity to recognise the most productive development for you.
Why Ski with JAZ?
He has been teaching skiing since 1984 and has an unrivalled depth of experience. He taught in Scotland for many years before moving out to Europe and settling in his favourite ski area.
He gained a Diploma in Elite Sports Coaching and became a mogul coach for the Scottish National Freestyle Ski Squad, coaching 2 British Champions and skiers who placed 4th & 10th at International Youth Championships.
He is as comfortable working with newcomers to the sport as he is developing seasoned, experienced, top-level instructors. Much of his Sports Coaching Diploma was in Sports Psychology giving him resources and techniques that he is equally happy to share with blue run skiers or the international athletes he has worked with!
He is a long standing BASI Trainer with responsibilities to train and assess instructors coming through the British system. He spent many seasons helping to train the BASI Trainers to train ski instructors! He is very much at the top of the profession!
Jaz has been a key figure in BASI. He was elected twice by his peers to be the BASI Trainers Director, enjoyed his role on the BASI Board and as coach to the BASI National Education Team, preparing them to represent BASI and Great Britain at the 2019 World Interski Convention in Bulgaria.
He became a BASI trainer in 1996 and has regularly delivered all Levels of courses . He represented Great Britain and BASI at the 2011 Interski Congress in St Anton and 2015 in Ushuaia.
Outside skiing, he has a passion for sailing and watersports. He has taught sailing for 30+ years, working as a dinghy instructor, race coach and professional race crew. He has won many major regattas, including National and European championships.
He is passionate about being the best he can be and spends time reading and studying sports coaching. He returned to college and took a Diploma in Elite Sports Coaching, which then led to him coaching the Scottish National Freestyle Squad.
Jaz was an original founder of BASS Morzine & Les Gets in 2000 and has been passionate about BASS being the best school it could be since then.
Jaz is married to Louise and has a teenage daughter Charlotte
