Neil Johnson

Neil comes from a background of professional outdoor instruction and exploratory skiing and mountaineering. After studying a sports science degree in Leeds, he started off working with young people, then moved on to working with adults and more specifically future leaders and instructors – spending 10 years working at Plas Y Brenin as a Senior Instructor, where he qualified as an IFMGA Guide.

In the winter months he lives in Chamonix mixing ice climbing, ski touring and off piste work  – where he has a good knowledge of Chamonix and La Grave, the Haute Route, the Queyras, the Silvretta, Otztal and Stubai regions – as well as several other quieter and less well known venues across the Alps.

In the summer months Neil guides in the Alps based in Chamonix, but at other times of year he delivers coaching seminars for the BMC, as well as other mountain leader training courses and awards.
