Please feel free to contact any of the committee members below if you have any questions.
John Makonnen - President
Tom Wontner - Chairman
"I'm club Chairman. I've skied regularly for the last 20 years, and head to the Tarentaise in France as often as I can. I first took my two boys to Bowles to help them with their general skiing skills, and loved the club's unique and friendly atmosphere and wonderful natural setting. The competitive element of racing really grabbed us all, and we now join as many dry ski races as possible during the summer, and plan to do some races on snow over the winter."
Ben Turner-Moore - Secretary
"I learnt to ski on a local dry slope in my early 20s and it kick-started my love for skiing. Now I support my two sons who train and race with Bowles Ski Racing Club. I can clearly see the benefits that training on a dry slope brings to their technique when we all ski together in the mountains. Bowles is a relaxed and friendly club and I'd encourage you to come along and see what we're all about."
Nigel Hilliard - Treasurer
"I am the club treasurer and a qualified alpine ski instructor and ski performance coach. I have been skiing for about 30 years and have raced for about 9 years. I have two children who race for Bowles and who both ski better than me - that's life!"
Simon Everitt - Head Coach
"I started skiing the age of 20 and have been a ski instructor since 1988. After a period teaching on snow, I've taught skiing at Bowles alongside a career in IT. I have been involved with the club since 1990, and hold BASI ISIA and SnowSport England IVSI qualifications."
Marna Wakeling - Club Welfare Officer
"I started skiing in my mid-30s and have two children at the club who are much better than me! The club is very welcoming to new members, whether they want to go on to race or not. Please contact me if you have any concerns over welfare or safeguarding issues."
Joshua Wakeling - Athletes Rep
"I started skiing at the age of 5 and have been racing at Bowles since I was 9. I have trained with English Schools (ESSKiA) ski squad and raced in LSERSA, Snowsports South and Club National races, and have also represented my schools at many school competitions."
