Is there such a thing as a UK ski guide (on piste to some basic off puste) as opposed to an instructor?
If climbing, scrambling or mountaineering, I might hire a guide for a day to accompany me, know the area, teach me more than I currently know, improve my experience and so on. But usually ski instructors only give an hour or maybe two of lessons and drills, not a full day, not generally visiting different parts of the mountain, different runs, snow conditions etc etc.
So, is there anyone to 'hire' for a day of 1:1 'guiding' ( albeit including advice on improving technique where appropriate)? Not after touring or off piste, not a super expert skier, just want something different from the standard lessons.

Gilian Parker is probably spot on for what you're after. She does get booked up though!

Climbnow *might* offer this. I'm sure I've seen them blog about it in the past.
