Alan GarciaI started skiing when I was just 2 years old and our one family holiday each year was a skiing holiday. I started snowboarding aged 10. I have now been professionally qualified and actively teaching since January 2001, first gaining status as a CASI snowboard instructor when I was 15 years old in Whistler, Canada. I first qualified as a CSIA ski instructor when I was 17 and subsequently took and passed my BASI Ski Instructor training shortly after my 19th birthday. I have trained on both the BASI and CSIA, ISIA courses and taken my level 3 CASI training.

I have had the privilege of learning and the greater privilege of teaching skiing and snowboarding in resorts around the world including, Whistler, Canada, Courchevel, Meribel and Megeve, France, Zermatt, Switzerland, Madonna Di Campiglio and Cervinia, Italy, Soldeu, Andorra, Jasna, Slovakia and of course Zakopane, Poland among many other beautiful places.

I’m also a passionate tennis coach and learned a lot coaching tennis for Club Med in Tunisia in a resort that catered for up to 1,400 guests per week.

I started Sunshine World in 2005 with a view to creating and continually improving “tools” to help as many people as possible enjoy as many wonderful moments as possible while we can. Our focus is on being able to offer such attentive customer service that we can customise our guests’ experiences to the most stringent demands and desires and I’m humbled by the kind support I have received from so many great people over the years!

Please call me any time if you’d like a chat!

“I met Alan while writing an article for the Independent about skiing in Poland and can wholeheartedly recommend him as both a businessman and an individual. Simply put, he's a great bloke with a great product - generous with his time and attention, keen to make sure everyone sampling his product is having a great time, straightforward, honest and hardworking. Oh, and he knows how to party, too! What's not to like?”

Ross Young, Producer / Director, Freelance (was with another company when working with Alan at Sunshine World LTD)
