Hi, I’m Rob. I set up Alp Tracks to help visitors get the most out of the Alps in all seasons. I want to provide a safe environment in which you can enjoy getting away from the crowds in some of the best scenery in the world. Whether you are hiking, touring or skiing, it doesn’t have to be difficult or scary, just memorable and fun. Each trip is personalised to the group so you can enjoy the best the Alps has to offer, whatever your budget, fitness and skill levels, and time constraints.
I am a fully qualified ski instructor and UIMLA (Union of International Mountain Leaders Association) guide. I’ve lived full time in the French Alps for over 10 years, most recently in a small village across the valley from Courchevel.
I was brought up in the North West of England, close to the Lake District where I spent a lot of my youth exploring the area and honing my navigation skills. I learnt to ski in Scotland and also spent summers there. I’ve been teaching skiing since 2001 and have taught in Canada, New Zealand and Austria as well as France.
I hope you find what you are looking for on my website but feel free to give me a call on +33 674 62 84 67 if you have any questions or are ready to book your Alp Tracks experience.
Here's what the lucky few who have experienced Alptracks have to say !
An epic day ski-touring in the Haute-Savoie back-country. Great local-knowledge and an ability to seek-out precisely what I wanted: maximum vertical ascent, a long powder descent with high-end technical challenge. Rob is a master of his craft and is at his best instructing on technique throughout the most difficult and technically challenging pitches. What's not to like. 5-stars; best day on skis in some considerable time.
