Ken has been instructing both adults and children in a variety of resorts with Snowtraxx every year since 2009. And when he is not teaching with Snowtraxx he can regularly be found teaching at Midlothian Snowsports Centre in Edinburgh. Ken often says that if he’d known that ski teaching was going to be so much fun, he would have given up his desk bound job a long time ago!
