Hugo is our Head of Sales and has been with Ski Solutions for over 10 years. He's been skiing most years since the age of six and although he now counts a good lunch as important as a bluebird day, he still gets the same excited feeling as he did all those years ago.
Invest in ski boots, don’t bother with skis. No matter how lovely your holiday is, sore boots will ruin your trip.
I started skiing at the age of six and have been lucky enough to ski most years since, mainly in France as a child and later in Canada before discovering the delights of Italy!
Best moment? Skiing powder in the back bowls of Lake Louise.
Tough one. Probably the Monta Rosa ski area in Italy, specifically Champoluc; there’s a really interesting range of skiing here. It’s superb for lower intermediates through to experts and is home to some really accessible and interesting off-piste skiing. Outside of peak weeks you’ll rarely find a queue here.
I also love Courchevel - it has one of the best-maintained ski areas in France and the area is hugely varied. Alongside the five-star hotels here there are some great, reasonably priced gems.
Courchevel, Meribel, Val Thorens, Les Deux Alpes, Alpe d'Huez, Val d'Isere, Tignes, Banff, La Plagne, La Tania, Les Gets, Morzine, Avoriaz, La Rosiere, Livingo, Champoluc, Gressoney, Corvara, Colfosco, Selva, La Villa and Cortina.
