Ski Instructor / Ski School Director
Glenn Wellesley is a British ski instructor who has been ski-teaching for well over 15 years. His career has taken him all over the world, including the U.S.A and New Zealand. He made the French slopes his winter home in 2003.
Glenn has his full BASI (British Association of Snowsport Instructors) international ski teacher licence with full French equivalence, but many of the skills that set him apart from other ski instructors came as a result of a ski racing injury. Glenn lost the physical strength to ski at race-level using orthodox methods, so he researched the latest techniques in bio-mechanics and sports science to find the easiest, most energy-efficient ways to ski.
The realization and understanding of how psychology and clarity are key factors in sport spurred him on to seek out and emulate World-renowned mentors and leaders in performance coaching.
Glenn is well equipped to help you “get the most without using the most” and to… Ski with Ease™. These performance soft skill coaching methods are tried and tested by elite athletes and will help ease you into the right mindset to get you skiing as quickly as possible.
Jean-Marc learned to ski from a very young age and became a member of the FFS Regional and Regional Alpine Ski Team – downhill speed skiing being his strongest discipline resulting in high-level podium finishes.
From here he became a French National Alpine Ski Instructor and in the late 80’s became one of the youngest ever ENSA Trainer’s of French National Ski Instructors and a Federal and International Technical Delegate.
Whilst retaining his trainer of trainer status, he worked in Management and a Head Coach position in charge of training and development programs for elite athletes in prestigious regional Alpine ski race clubs. This resulted in several podiums at national level! To improve his English language skills he worked in England for a couple of years at the artificial ski slopes. On returning to France he worked winter seasons with some of the top ski schools in the French Alps as a consultant and head ski instructor of technical training programs. His area of expertise being planning & organization of mental preparation programs of the elite teams in alpine skiing. He joined Ski with Ease ski school last winter and proved to be a perfect fit proving that he can transfer his high level skills to our recreational skiing guests.
