Ben was first taught to telemark ski by his dad at the age of 15 and hasn’t looked back since. After school, he went on to complete his first ski season as a chalet host in Alpe d’huez. It wasn’t until after this season that Ben learnt about telemark racing and decided to attend one of the indoor championships, leading to his second ski season. Here Ben focused primarily on racing, living in Les Houches and training with the Multiglisse Telemark Ski Club.

Following this season, Ben made the selection for the GB Telemark Team. He now races on the World Cup circuit alongside studying Sports Technology at Loughborough University. Ben aims to become World Champion, and dreams of making Telemark an Olympic Sport in the years to come.
