Sion started skiing with his family as soon as he could walk. He started racing in Alpine skiing when he was ten. At 15 he won the Scottish Championships and at 16 made the Scottish Alpine Development Team.

Sion first tried telemarking on one of the Scottish Team training camps and really enjoyed it, so at the end of the season (13/14) when he decided to stop racing Alpine it felt like a good option.

He began training with Seb Mansart in Les Houches. He had a promising first season (14/15) competing on the French Cup Circuit, doing his first World Cup race and going to the World Junior Championships in Steamboat Springs. The last two seasons Sion has been competing on the World Cup circuit which he describes as “a fantastic experience!  Telemarking is a very friendly sport and I now have friends from all over the world from other national teams.  It is very inspirational to be competing with the very best in the world and, of course, great fun to take part in World Cup and World Championships!”

Sion made quite a lot of changes to his technique last year, and is hoping that he will reap the benefits in the coming season.  A badly sprained ankle while running in Chamonix right at the end of last season disrupted his off season training and meant a lot of hours on the turbo trainer this summer.  Now recovered, he is looking forward to juggling academic work and telemarking as he starts at Strathclyde University in Glasgow in September, studying Sports Engineering. 

Sion’s goals for the season are to be top 10 in the World Juniors, to be consistently skiing into the top 20 in World Cups in both Sprint and Classic disciplines, and to make the top 10 in the Parallel Sprint.

Sion would like to thank all his sponsors and his parents for their support.
