Looking for something to add a little zest to retirement? Andy Walters became a ski instructor at 60 – teaching classes to bend their knees when many people his age have trouble bending theirs. He wasn’t exactly a newcomer to the slopes mind. His initiation was in Austria at the age of 11 and a teacher at school in the Highlands organised weekend trips to the Glenshee ski area. But work and raising a family caused him to break from the sport for 20 years, picking it up again after moving to Scotland. He took his first instructor course in the Cairngorms and answered a Facebook request, from a company teaching children to ski, for someone to replace an instructor who injured herself.
