What a pic!Alta badia GS, just pure love 🥰. I am proud I manage to race here and even more that with all circumstances was twice a close call. Now it’s time for some break and full recovery for my hand to entrance the 2kXXIII with full health and power!

Never sure when to say something or even what to say…
Kevin Mochrie…’Kev’ …was the founder of Podium with me shortly after the millennium. We met through skiing channels a few years previously and we were asked to run a season long training programme preparing ski instructors for their Eurotest from 2003. It was from this that we decided to head to Tignes and run our first 6 weeks of autumn training so our guys had some grounding either for the season or for their upcoming tests. The rest is history…
What I remember is enjoying that time immensely with Kev. We shacked up in a pokey flat in Val Claret and talked skiing endlessly, watched DVDs and planned our days. ‘Guest’ coaches such as Ross Green used to stay on occasional weeks and join in on plans.
Kev always seemed interested in what I was bringing to the table and we would debate endlessly on the best way to do things or how to make a certain skier better but the truth was I was full of ideas but he was eminently more capable. He was a common-sense, no-nonsense type of chap and so what he said, and what I said, always had to be ‘sense checked’. I think this is one of the things that has stayed with me throughout my career; ‘don’t just regurgitate what someone else says. It could be ‘shite’ [as he would say].’ I remember him endlessly questioning an Italian coach and friend of ours in Les 2 Alpes on …everything skiing. But that was always my impression of Kev back then – someone who you could always source reliable information and opinion from as you knew it had been given some thought. I also think he was someone who never really blew his own trumpet, preferring actions to words, but I think it’s right that I blow it for him.
Some will remember, some won’t know, but Kev was a wonderful skier and trainer. He could turn his hand to every skiing situation, look supremely elegant and come up smelling of roses. In our job you occasionally come across a skier that had a ‘touch’ on the snow and could float across anything, no matter how difficult. He was one of them. I always remember our friend Dave Beattie telling me a story about Kev gliding over some particularly tricky off piste snow whereas the other 3 instructors with him stuttered and spluttered. He always laughed and wondered if Kev was skiing on ‘different snow to them.’ There was an era when Kev was unofficially but truly ‘no 1’ trainer and many instructors who came through under his stewardship would remember that he was demanding but that he had very positive and lasting effect on their skiing and on their outlook on skiing.
As many would know Kevin received a kidney from his mum after being diagnosed with Berger’s disease in the late nineties. He later went on to compete and win multiple events in the World Transplant Games in Finland.
If there was one reproach I had of him it was that he worked too hard. In later years we didn’t stay in touch so much as we were split geographically and he returned to Edinburgh to work as a joiner but I would often hear tales that he would be working too much often to the detriment of his health. I guess he was programmed to be like that – a grafter - but he was more than that. He always wanted to do things well and undoubtedly, he did.
I wish his wife Elaine and his children Anna and Lucy all the strength they need in this immensely difficult time but I know that their lives were enriched for having a husband and dad like Kev.
I, for one, am thankful for spending some great times with him.
Cheers my friend. I'll miss you.

Dave Morris great words and all true. I only knew Kev from our time in Les gets together and visiting us in Devon , I took that photo you used in his blue jacket on the black run on mont Cheri, and yes as I took it I thought to myself as we skied all afternoon , wow Kev is making that snow look easy , he had that sweet spot on his skis that I had only witnessed myself watching Dennis Edwards and Peter Fuchs , that’s how good Kev was , but yes he never blew his trumpet but would try and better his skiing on the next run . So sorry to hear about Kev , and love to Elaine and family .

Very well put. Such a sad time, I owe “Mosher” a lot - the training I did with him in the early days was immeasurably helpful. One of the nicest and most natural skiers I’ve ever seen and a fantastic guy to boot.

Beautiful words Dave. What a legend, no nonsense guy who helped so many skiers on their pathway to success. I remember well the era when he was unofficially but truly the no.1 Trainer. An inspirational guy on so many levels. And a wise soul who will be sadly missed.

So sorry to hear this news Dave! My father skied with Kev a lot on holidays with Dave Beattie and always raved about skiing with him. Think his no nonsense approach to ski instruction was one of his strengths. Top bloke and awesome skier! Big hugs bro!

Great words Dave Morris for a great man, Kev was as you say one of the ‘real skiers’ and a true inspiration to me during my Courchevel years. RIP Kev and deepest condolences to Elaine and the family.

Beautiful words Dave. I’ve shared them with Paul who was shocked & saddened to hear about Kev. X

Lovely words that discribe him exactly, those years were the ones that made a lot of us who we are today, he will never be forgotten ❤️

A sad day for the skiing community. A top skier and trainer. I was there with Matt Ottaway in Meribel when Kev double ejected his skis over the ditch. I bailed out next to it and left him nowhere to go. It was funny because I never had seen him stack it, in countless hours of skiing. As others have said Kevin had a no nonsense direct approach that appealed to me. Many members owe him a debt of gratitude for his help. RIP.

What a legend - so many stories & great memories with him & good old Irish Tom Donnelly- I’m sure your both having a beer upstairs - we all miss you deeply 👌

Really nice words dave kev got the best out of loads of us and the list of those he helped is a long one RIP mate . Love and thoughts to Elaine and the kids x

OmG, sad news, nice words didnt know Kev that well but whenever bumped into him, gr8 chats really really nice guy, rip, best to Elaine and family

Lovely words Dave, for a truly lovely Guy, he will be sorely missed by so many in and out of the skiing world, as you said wishing Elaine and their girls all the strength to get through this very tough time.

Dave, touching tribute to a great guy and coach. RIP.

Great tribute Dave RIP Kev you’re surly missed

Great guy, great coaching, I treasure my time spent in his coaching and his company.... RIP Kevin

A lovely tribute to one of life s good guys . He has left a very big void

I worked with Kevin for just one season in Valmeiner,he was a lovely guy, understated and genuinely interested in all things skiing, great personality and true ambassador for the sport.

So sorry to hear this Dave, such a great skier. A lovely tribute.

I’m so sad to hear this 😔 He was my trainer on my level 2 many moons ago and I was only talking about him the other day. Wonderful words Dave ❤️

Really lovely words Dave, yes Kev will be missed by so many. He was a truly top bloke

Kev was my trainer on my BASI grade 3 (now Level 2) back in 2003. He was a great coach, one of the best if not the best I’ve ever worked with and a great bloke as well as a truly inspirational skier. Without his help, keen eye great advice I would not be a ski instructor today, living my dreams. I owe Kev a huge debt of gratitude and will never forget the impact he had on my life. If the mark of a person is the positive change you make to the lives of others, then Kev is a true hero for all that he did for me and maybe indirectly anyone who enjoys the work I do today.

Well said Dave. Goodbye Kev and thoughts with Elaine and the girls 💔

Lovely nice words Dave RIP Kev

I had some of the best fun years of my life training with Kev. A true inspiration.

Dave, great words. Kev was the master skier and his feedback would always be precise to the point and would never need further explanations! Will pass on massive hugs to Elaine and the girls

We have been blown away by the support that came in over the last week since the UK sport announcement and about the state of affairs for British skiing. There was a call from many to do a crowd fund and with only 6 weeks until D day for us, we felt that it was a good decision to make. We hope this will give us a small chunk of security to focus on our training ahead of this winter, as well as give our key coaches and technicians the job security that will keep them standing by us and supporting us.

We remain hopeful that some sponsors will come onboard and support our journey in the long run, but for right now any and all help that you guys can give to us as a team will be appreciated more than you know. We really need it and we promise to keep pushing hard like we have to pursue the top level of this sport time and time again.
