John – Chair

John hails from Middlesborough and took up cross country skiing back in 1991 after finishing his career at sea.

And after 24 years he says he’s still trying to get the hang of it!  He joined Yorkshire Dales because he thought it seemed a very sociable club. And he’s not stopped socialising since with many club holidays, walking and canoe trips and roller ski tours under his belt! On snow skiing is what he really enjoys though- as well as eating gernknodels- and roller skiing is a means to that end.
