James E

Key Account Manager

I am of the older guard at Ski Solutions, as I joined in August 2004. I grew up outside Munich, where we had easy access to the Bavarian and Austrian mountains. It took me until I was seven before I realised I rather liked skiing and the mountains. We explored many of the smaller, lesser-known resorts, as well as more well-known areas, which gave me a good cross-section of the different ski cultures. I did a race training camp one summer in the hope of racing for GB, but soon realised I had no chance after getting thrashed by a group of 12-year-old Austrians – I was 16 at the time!

I worked a season in Lech honing my mogul (a big favourite) & off-piste skiing for a couple of years before joining Ski Solutions. It reaffirmed my desire to work in the industry. Whilst it was tempting to do more seasons, I realised I couldn’t survive on four hours of sleep a night! I then worked for a small ski company before joining Ski Solutions, where I have met friends for life, including my wife.

Jimbo Top Tip

Top Tip

Austrian moguls are very different to (& better than) French moguls! Don’t be put off by a good bumps run – they’re often the most rewarding. Ski hard in the morning and then have a nice long lunch! Weissbier is the most refreshing beer after a hard day’s skiing.

Favourite Hotel

My favourite place to stay has to be Hotel La Chaudanne in Méribel, which occupies one of the best spots in the resort. I would highly recommend trying it out if you are looking for great spa facilities and easy ski access.
