Our ski instructors are as passionate about teaching skiing as they are about skiing itself! They’ve spent thousands of hours doing a job they love and like nothing more than helping others share their enjoyment of the sport. All in a safe and fun learning environment.

We recognise that whatever our level, we never stop learning. Despite holding the highest international level of qualification, our ski instructors continue to put themselves through further training every year to keep themselves at the forefront of the industry and ensure the lessons we deliver are the very best available.

All Mountain Snowsports Instructor, James Crompton

James Crompton

James brings a wealth of experience and boundless enthusiasm to All Mountain Snowsports, having taught and coached skiing for over a decade across Europe and Australia. He also works as a Trainer/Examiner for the British Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI), delivering training and assessment courses across the Alps.

A passion for skiing grew whilst racing as a child. His coach inspired him to teach the sport after he finished competing and studying. After four years at university James spent five years working for a large tour operator and ski school in Italy’s Aosta Valley, heading up their marketing and instructor training courses.

James has been teaching in Morzine since 2010, initially for a large British ski school before setting up All Mountain Snowsports in 2014. He made a great impact with his inspiring skiing and teaching, both with clients and colleagues. James spends his summers coaching skiing, eating BBQ’s and mountain biking with his fiancé in New South Wales, Australia. He’s currently an in-house Trainer at Perisher, the Southern Hemisphere’s largest ski resort.

Outside of his time on the snow, James has a passion for photography and design. He can still hold his own on a tennis court and enjoys following athletics and Formula 1 motorsport.

All Mountain Snowsports Instructor, Mike Greenbank

Mike Greenbank

A truly gifted skier and highly experienced instructor. Mike has spent the last four years teaching skiing over the border on the Swiss side of the Portes du Soleil, for the Swiss Snowsport School in Les Crosets. His deep knowledge of this vast ski area area ensures you’ll always be skiing the best conditions available at any given time.

Mike’s skiing roots are in the Lake District and he used to regularly ski on a mountain called Raise next to Helvellyn. He spent his childhood racing for Kendal ski club and competing throughout Europe before deciding to turn his passion into his profession, training in France and initially cutting his teeth at ski schools in the Italian Alps. Mike’s passion is contagious, as anyone who skis with him will know.

Equally at home in the racecourses of the Morzine Stade, the powder bowls of Chamossiere, touring up the Plain de l’Eau or hammering down the bumps of the Swiss wall – Mike’s a man of many talents and can use his experience to help you have the most fun anywhere on the mountain. During the summer months you kind find Mike in Cumbria, crafting some of the UK’s finest ales at the Hawkshead Brewery.
