Warren Smith Ski Academy
The Warren Smith Ski Academy brings together some of the sports top professionals to create a unique coaching team that actually guarantee ski technique solutions. This is achieved by evolving traditional methods of ski coaching and adding two additional layers of ski biomechanics and ski physiology. The combo of ski technique, biomechanics and physiology is rapidly becoming know as the new wave in ski coaching and is the only way to get 100% results. This unlocks all your classic ski problems and opens the door to performance and ergonomic skiing. The only true way to get off the ski instruction plateau’s and get success on moguls, steeps and powder.
"Warren’s coaching method is something I really responded to. It was tough but really effective, a bit like a boot camp, but an enjoyable one. I’ve had so much coaching throughout my rugby career that when I met Warren I quickly realised I had struck gold, his philosophy and teaching methods are different gravy"
Lawrence Dallaglio - Former England Rugby Captain
"I tried one of Warren’s courses last year and have never looked back, the courses covered technique, but also look at equipment, biomechanics and physiology, I was really impressed. Those days spent on snow with Warren gave my skiing a new lease of life and really helped me move my skiing on after ten years or more of skiing with no real coaching. Warren has been the Snow+Rock online technique expert for over 5 years and we’re now incorporating his methods into some of our boot fitting techniques. I highly recommend his courses to all Snow+Rock customers and keen skiers of all levels."
Kevin Young - Head of Marketing, Snow+Rock.

Mountain Kingdoms, formerly Himalayan Kingdoms
In 2008 Mountain Kingdoms became the new name for Himalayan Kingdoms - 21 years after the company was first formed. Himalayan Kingdoms was formed in October 1987, when two mountaineering friends, Steve Berry and Steve Bell rejected conventional careers to make a living from the love of their life – the greatest mountain range in the world. The reputation of the company as the Himalayan, trekking, touring and mountaineering specialist quickly grew, and in 1993, Himalayan Kingdoms were the first British company to guide Everest, putting seven paying clients, six Sherpas and two guides on the summit.
