Lyndsay Burns

I was bitten by the travel bug from an early age and at 21, I packed my bags and went overseas to work as a holiday rep for First Choice. I travelled round numerous resorts in Europe from gorgeous, goats-a-plenty Greece to the bustle of busy Benidorm beaches. I left the sun behind in the winter of 04’ and headed to Val D’Isere, where I found my true home, the snowy wonderland that is the French Alps.

After 7 years of nomadic living, I packed my well-travelled, well-worn suitcase and came back to the UK to get a “proper” job. I joined the Brighton Office as the Administration Manager for our Ski Team where I enjoyed 4 years ensuring that all our schools had amazing skiing experiences across the Alps and North America.

I moved across to the International Team 2 years ago and now co-ordinate the Skibound International program. I am passionate about skiing and believe every child would benefit not only from skiing but experiencing the breath-taking, alpine beauty of our ski resorts.  Many of our international students have never seen snow before so it really is a trip they will never forget.

 
Favourite city: It’s a difficult questions as so many come to mind, Stockholm and  Helsinki for example, but the place that has a special place in my heart is my home city of Glasgow. Every time I go home, I am reminded what a vibrant, fun-loving city it is.
 
About me: I have to admit to being a bit sports mad. I love most sports but my passion is Formula 1. I was rendered speechless when I met Johnny Herbert at the Silverstone Grand Prix a few years back, for anyone who knows me they know that is no mean feat!
