Staff Profile

Pete O'Neill

Fearless leader or maybe just the unlikely one in charge of this gang, Pete has run the ski school now for 15 years. He has skied for Australian on 20 seperate occasions and has a number of Aussie Titles to boot. Though his time now gets taken more and more by the office, he will still be seen sneaking his way back into the boat to get some fun in the sun.

Arnie Ernie Van Maele

Stolen from Belguim and transported into the boat, Arnie is fresh of back to back summers skiing round the world in ski shows including heading up the Belguim team. He brings his accent and more to coaching in the ski school this summer and we are stoked to welcome him in for his first summer in Aus

Like Nick, only taller and stronger. Sam is the younger brother of Nick and does his best to match Nick on the water ,where he can Sam has skied around the world as well and is another welcome addition to the boat this year.

Tom Ryan

New this year to our ski school although a friend for many years, Tom made his mark on skiing a the 2017 National Titles taking home the gold medal in slalom.
