Managing Director & Founder
My passion for skiing has shaped my career, my life and my work. At the ripe old age of 8, my father would drop me off and leave me with a ski instructor all day at a local ski hill outside Tehran with a sandwich stuffed in my pockets and then pick me at the end of the day. And that’s where it all started. Since then I’ve skied extensively in Europe and North America as well as to many lesser known ski destinations worldwide. I founded Momentum Ski with a single vision - to enable everyone to enjoy the whole alpine experience as much as I have with the help of my knowledge and experience, and in doing so guaranteeing you the trip of a lifetime.

Senior International Sales Consultant
Darcy's love of skiing began at an early age through numerous family ski holidays in resorts across France, Switzerland and Austria. After a winter season after university in Val d'Isere, she decided to follow her passion and pursue a career in the ski industry and looks forward to speaking to you and tailor-making your ski break!
Senior Event and Marketing Manager
Ex Eurokid, half French, half English and born in Italy, Jess first worked for Amin in Courmayeur when she finished university studying veterinary medicine. From there, many years around the world directing Olympic Games and other global events, before returning to the fold and joining Momentum Ski to work on major events and marketing. Loves mountains, dogs, foxes, reading, singing, the crazy world of events and English humour.
Momentum's go-to man for operations in the Alps. JD brings huge experience and great knowledge of the Alps to our events team. NBC poached him to work on both the London Olympics and the Winter Olympics in Sochi, but his true calling is managing the Momentum Ski giant slalom start gate at our racing events. He's a sandwich afficionado, so just make sure he has a good stash in his pocket!
Courmayeur Guru & Resort Coordinator
Chris is a local who left the U.K. for Courmayeur back in 1988 to "do a ski season to get it out of my system" and just could'nt leave! If that's not a good reason to visit Courmayeur, then what is? She's been taking care of visitors to the resort ever since. A very keen skier, both downhill and cross-country, Chris has lots of hands-on experience of the area and neighbouring resorts and endless local contacts to ensure things happen when needed and our valued guests get the best out of this very special alpine destination. Catch her in the Bar Roma for a chat and a Spritz at apres ski time!
International Ski Consultant
Having started skiing from the age of 7 on a small dry ski slope in the Lake District, I quickly moved onto the real stuff on family holidays in France, Austria and Switzerland. As I got a bit older I started to go skiing on school trips, one in which my mum decided to join me on….! Luckily I wasn’t completely scarred by the experience that I went to complete two ski seasons in Alpe d’Huez and Meribel, being very much touch and go whether I’d leave the seasonaire life behind and stay in the mountains! After returning back to the UK in 2016 I moved to London and quickly dived back into the ski industry. After honing my skills and expanding my knowledge of the industry I have now joined the Momentum Ski team. My favourite resort is Meribel, as you’re in the heart of the Three Valleys and have access to some of the best skiing, apres and nightlife in the Alps! When I’m not at work you’ll catch me eating out around London, watching / doing anything sporty and travelling around the country or abroad.
International Sales Consultant
Snow-Camp’s Founder, Dan Charlish, has known Amin for many years having met in the early days at the Ski Show. They kept in touch and as the charity grew Amin was keen to see a partnership with Snow-Camp develop. Snow-Camp joined the City Ski Championships as the official Charity Partner in 2018. The partnership between Snow-Camp and the Momentum Ski provides a wonderful opportunity for the charity to further raise the profile of its work, find new supporters and create new opportunities for the young people we support.
Poppy is a real world traveller having lived in Hong Kong, Singapore, Argentina and London. She started skiing at the age of 5 and has skied in France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy , Mammoth mountain in California and Vail/Beaver Creek in Colorado. As happy on stage as she is on the slopes Poppy has starred in many amateur productions including the leads in Evita and My Fair Lady. She is also a great musician playing a number of instruments including the Trumpet. She works in London in Marketing but makes time for Momentum whenever she is needed.
Charlie is always escaping to the fresh air and stunning scenery of the mountains; he started skiing late by Momentum standards but still loves to be the first up the mountain to carve up the powder. When he’s not on the slopes, he’s in the kitchen rustling up a new dish for his fledgling YouTube channel ‘The Gourmet Pantry’. His ‘real’ job is managing a commercial property portfolio in Sussex, but he loves nothing more than spending his holiday helping out at Momentum.
