Lawrence was raised in the surf capital of the United Kingdom and grew up with a passion for outdoor sports. Following his first winter season in New Zealand, he traded sand, sea and surf for cool mountain air and incredible vistas. After becoming immersed in mountain life, his work in events co-ordination, summer camps and youth organisations allowed him to live and travel across some of the world’s most famous mountain resorts in Europe, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. Lawrence joined the Viamonde family in 2013 and manages all aspects of our operations, staff recruitment, staff training and programme development.

Ed discovered his love of skiing at the age of 10 on a family trip to Andorra. From a young age, he knew that he wanted to pursue a career in the ski industry.

Ed joined Viamonde in 2016 and brought with him a wealth of experience and qualifications, having instructed in Europe, New Zealand and Japan. With more than 10 seasons of experience, Ed is extremely passionate about sharing his love of snowsports with others and works hard to ensure that all the students in our care get the most out of their time with us.
