"All skiers have one thing in common- they want to improve. And for all the joys and thrills of skiing,this is the most frustrating part-you know you can acheive more,but don't know how to- you have landed on the notorious learning plateau.  It is no consolation that even expert skiers experience it.  And one ski course can seem like any other, no matter where you go.  Many ski courses still use set-piece instruction of one sort or another.  You  get A,B and C right but sooner or later improvement grinds to a halt.

 

 In the Skiing Clinics we can cure your skiing ills with a more radical approach, showing how you can transform your skiing by building on elementary technical ideas and putting them into practice effectively.

 I never cease to be amazed that newcomers to our ski courses-experienced intermediate and advanced skiers - have never  heard of one of the most basic concepts of all -  the ski will turn you, if you know how to use it. This simple idea is the key to excellence in skiing".

ALI ROSS

AWARDED MBE ...

Alasdair Anderson Ross MBE

 

Ali Ross Skiing Clinics are delighted to announce that Ali has been awarded an MBE in the New Year's Honours List, for "services to skiing".

 

The citation simply reads:

Alasdair Anderson Ross, Skiing Instructor for services to Skiing (Ross and Cromarty).

 

It is hard to describe the disbelief at the unreal phone call late one night asking if he would accept the honour - we thought the spirit of Christmas was at it - but no, they'd had difficulty finding our number! Huge and grateful thanks are due to the instigator of the nomination (we wondered who it was, and now we know!) and to those who supported it, and kept it secret, which of course is the way it should be.

 

Thanks are also due to all our clients, past and present, who in no small measure are proof that ordinary skiers can become extraordinary performers of the sport, given the right technical insights and help. Without you, this journey would not have been possible.

 

Meilleurs voeux for 2020!

And above all, good health.

Moira and Ali.

 

 

On LinkedIn:

"I would like to congratulate Ali (Alasdair) on his award of an MBE in this  New Year's Honours List, for "services to skiing". It was (as I think everyone says when they find out they have been nominated ) a complete surprise when we received the phone call asking if he would accept the honour.  I am sure those of you who have known him and skied with him over his many years of teaching, not just in  Ali Ross Skiing Clinics, but predating that as a trainer of young racers and trainee teachers, will agree that it is a thoroughly deserved recognition of his contribution to  the technical advancement of the sport and its teaching  to the wider skiing public".  Moira Ross

 

 

Ali's reaction:

"It's now a few hours since the surprise, yes shock, news of the award of the MBE.

I have also been amazed at how many really kind and nice wishes we have received, l thank you all from the bottom of my heart, but this honour can not be for me alone, I have to thank Moira for years of support.

Thank you all again and I hope that the New year is kind to you all."

 

 

Reactions:

"His contribution can hardly be over-estimated from his involvement with the British Association of Snowsport Instructors in its early years, to his continuing teaching out in the Alps," said the PlanetSKI editor, James Cove.

 

"He wrote several books and was a TV star back in the day as skiing was taken to the masses. He once told me when I visited him at his home in Scotland that he never wanted to race, run a large ski school or have any other job, just be out on the slopes, one-on-one with his clients helping them become better skiers."

 

"His style of teaching was revolutionary and he was the fore-runner of many of the techniques now used."

 

"Legend is an over-used word, but Ali is a skiing legend and the award is highly deserved."

 

Martin Bell: "Congrats Ali! Couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke!"

 

Phil Smith: "Well deserved Ali, amazing. The right thing. what a role model for us all"
