    Skiing Expert

    Store: MILTON KEYNES - SKI & SNOWBOARD

    Justyna started skiing at the age of 5, at the local resorts back in her home country of Poland. She took part in her first ski race at the age of 8, and since then has moved on to ski touring and telemarking, so she has a great level of experience in every aspect of the sport. Justyna is now ISIA qualified, and she teaches racing in the Snowzone, in addition to coaching for Gravity Sports and helping Salomon and SIGB test skis.

    She has been on several Ellis Brigham ski tests and like the other skiers in Milton Keynes gets to try out all the new kit on the indoor slope. So if you need advice about the right ski for your skiing style, come to Milton Keynes Xscape and talk to Justyna.

  • Mark Watson

    Skiing Expert

    Store: MILTON KEYNES - SKI & SNOWBOARD

    Mark started skiing at the age of 14 and quickly developed a passion for the snow. Killington was the first resort he visited with school, but thanks to the Snowzone he soon discovered freestyle skiing and has been practising and perfecting tricks for the last 12 years. At the age of 19 Mark got spotted by Salomon at one of the many competitions he took part in, and became a sponsored rider, which gave him access to new gear, and more freestyle events.

    He's now completed over 100 weeks on the snow, with two full seasons in Canada and Austria under his belt, and he's been on two Ellis Brigham ski tests. Nowadays Mark is more into all mountain riding, but still gets to try out all the latest gear in the Snowzone as soon as it's available, so if you need to talk to someone about any type of ski kit, from freestyle to piste riding, Mark's a good man to talk to.

  • Lewis Twiselton

    Snowboarding Expert

    Store: MILTON KEYNES - SKI & SNOWBOARD

    Lewis has snowboarded for ten years after going to Morzine and has been hooked ever since. For Lewis, snowboarding is all about fast and steep freeride. He has completed a season in the Southern Hemisphere on New Zealand's volcanic Mt. Ruapehu where he gained great experience in selecting the correct set-up for riders as a board technician. He further enhanced that knowledge by attending our Snowboard Test week in Austria where he rode most of this coming season’s new snowboards.

    Lewis also recently won a week’s riding with the Burton UK Team in Avoriaz where he loved hitting the "Burton Stash" with the pros. With all this experience Lewis is the person to see for everything snowboard from hardware fixes to new season kit. You’ll probably catch him riding in the dome at Milton Keynes Xscape too!
