Peter Cliff

Welcome. I am Peter Cliff, Mountain Guide, and if you would like to try off-piste skiing or ski touring, I have many years of experience in introducing people to these aspects of skiing and it would give me great pleasure to ski with you.

In addition to mountain guiding, I am also a RYA Yachtmaster and have taken many people on cruises round the Scottish Islands and the Mediterranean. And I worked for several years as a ski instructor in Scotland. My past experiences include: law degree LL.B, 6 years on the British Press Council, 9 years as Leader of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team, and I am a former President of the British Mountain Guides.

 

OFF-PISTE SKIING

SKI SAFARIS

SKI TOURS
Anyone who is reasonably competent on red pistes can enjoy the delights of off-piste skiing. Often all it takes is a few hints on technique and careful choice of snow and gradient; and with the right progression you will soon be enjoying longer runs away from the lift queues and you will be hooked! GUARANTEED ENJOYMENT! I really enjoy introducing people to off-piste, to the extent that I will give you a guarantee - if you dont make progress and don enjoy yourself, I will refund you the guiding fee. Pre-requirements: competent on red pistes.read more
A ski safari is a journey from one ski resort to another, using any form of transport available - lifts, taxis, buses and even helicopters. The idea is to get as much skiing as possible and while most of it will be off-piste, that doesn mean that the occasional piste is ruled out. We carry a small rucksack with overnight things and a share of essential group equipment, and the rest of our luggage is sent on to meet us at our final destination.read more
These range from hotel-based day tours to one week hut-to-hut tours. For a competent skier with a reasonable level of fitness, ski touring opens up a completely new aspect of skiing. Height is gained by fitting skins to the soles of the skis, and for the ski descent you take off the skins and put them away for next time - this specialist equipment can easily be hired in almost all alpine ski villages.read more
