I love everything there is about skiing - adventure, excitement, speed, adrenalin, challenge, camaraderie, standing above the clouds – and skiing through them, fresh powder and spring slush, being outdoors all day with mates, a well-earned drink at the end of the day, dancing on tables in ski boots, cheese.
My ski initiation was on a dry slope in Norwich as a teenager, swiftly followed by a school trip to Les Carroz which I loved. My mum was working for Schoolplan at the time selling school ski holidays so from then on we (my sister and I) alternated between a family trip with mum and dad and a school trip. Mum and Dad even met on a ski holiday (back in 1968!) so it’s been part of family life – not least when my sister and I spent a number of years out in Méribel together in the noughties.
On return from Méribel I got myself a job selling ski holidays at Ski Club GB to get back into London life and before finding a ‘proper job’. Twelve and a half years later I moved on from the Ski Club to Ski Solutions.
