Meet our training consultants
Born in Australia and growing up in California, Tristan now calls New Zealand home. Four years ago, he and his partner decided to make a big life change and went and travelled around the world for 3 years with the goal of living overseas. A broad business background and 25 years of snowboarding experience created the perfect fit for him as a Training Consultant here at EA. He has a passion for the outdoors and you will find him windsurfing the outlet or exploring the single track in Wanaka. (He is also much taller and tanner than Alex who also talks kinda funny).
Alex has been helping dreams come true at EA for just over two years now and is REALLY passionate about sending people to amazing places to do the best job in the world. He originally hails from England and grew up skiing all around Europe, doing his first season back in 2012 in Meribel, France, and hasn’t looked back. Since that first season Alex has travelled large parts of Asia and also settled in both Australia and New Zealand, specifically Queenstown where he’s also been a program manager for EA. He’s now moved to Canada to try out the Skiing there and can’t wait to tell you about it!
Ash is from Queenstown, New Zealand and is one of the people you will most likely speak to when first looking into becoming an Instructor. Ash has worked in the ski instructing industry since 2004. He is currently an active New Zealand Snowsports Instructors Alliance Trainer and Examiner in addition to his role here at EA. Ash loves sharing his enthusiasm and knowledge with others and is a regular host of our pre-season training webinars. Being an Instructor has taken him to China, Argentina, Japan, Canada and New Zealand.
Ray is an avid skier and keen traveller from the United Kingdom. Having grown up skiing in Italy, France and the USA, Ray soon found himself on the road exploring different corners of the world. After some memorable months in Africa and Asia it was no surprise that the beauty of Queenstown and the Kiwi lifestyle stole his heart! Three winter seasons later (two years working with EA) have provided him with a wealth of knowledge into the snowsports industry - he is the man to help you fast track your instructor dreams!
