Andy Nelson


As a dual qualified IFMGA Mountain Guide and BASI Level 3 ISIA Ski Instructor, Andy brings a vast amount of expertise to our team. He has travelled extensively throughout the Alps, for both skiing and climbing. As long as he can tie into a rope, or clip into his skis and share the fun with others, he'll be grinning from ear to ear. With Andy's skills in both guiding and instruction, clients have found that their off-piste skiing goes from strength to strength, whilst getting substantial mileage under their belts. 

Originally from Northumberland, Andy has enjoyed climbing and skiing adventures of all sizes for 30 years. He now lives with his family in Glencoe, making him an ideal choice for working on our Ben Nevis Ski Weekend. Andy is the Leader of Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team which provides adventures of a different kind, day & night, summer & winter and gives him an intimate knowledge of Glencoe and some of it’s more “esoteric” spots!
