Get to know Greg
One of the original founders of Marmalade, Greg is the definition of ‘aveczest’. After growing up in a little village near Chester (also the name of his Dog) he now calls Meribel his home all year round. Greg began skiing on a snow covered golf course in Scotland at the age of 12 and after falling in love with the sport began teaching in 2007. His competing days were short lived when Del and him were successful at winning the 3 valleys race but he then fractured his back later that same day… Greg is a keen sportsman enjoying ski touring in the winter and cycling in the summer. He is even competing in his first half iron man in 2018. Between all of his sporting activities in the summer Greg works as a tree surgeon and property developer.
Describe a perfect day on the mountain.
Crisp blue sky, perfect light powder with friends ripping up the mountain then back home safe for a lemon meringue pie!
Spaghetti or Linguini?
Linguini as there is more surface area. More surface area equals the ability to take on more sauce and I like condiments and sauce. I’m that kinda guy!
What do you most like about being a ski instructor?
Opening up the mountain to people and showing them how easy skiing is and how much fun it is. Also meeting lots of random, cool people.
What is your favourite power tool?
Got to be a chain saw. I have been a tree surgeon for last 10 years so I have used many a chain saw. Stihl saw all the way.
What is your summer job and location?
Tree surgeon/plasterer in Meribel.
If you could travel back in time to one event what would it be?
The first ever sunrise and be sitting on top of everest. Or maybe see who was on the grassy knoll…
Favourite ski resort and why?
Zinal, Switzerland. Unknown powder mecca (don’t tell anyone).
