In 1996 Malcolm set up the British Ski Academy in the Chamonix Valley to provide better foundational Alpine training to British youngsters than was available in his own youth. The BSA's is the longest running academy programme serving British ski racing. Most members of the current British World Cup Ski Team trained with the BSA extensively in their junior years.

She lives in Les Houches, prior to that she lived in Scotland for 26 years, did her degree at Strathclyde University and worked in education for over ten years. She heads up the tutorial team as well as liasing with schools and parents to ensure that the children training with us do not lose continuity with their education.
