I grew up on a sheep and cattle property in Western Queensland, Australia... a far cry from any snow! Not wishing to pursue my initial career ambition of becoming a jillaroo (Australian stock hand), I hung up the stock whip and spurs and completed a Bachelor of Business in Advertising and Public Relations in Brisbane. After five years in Sydney working in lifestyle PR, I moved to London in 2009 and soon switched from PR to the winter sports industry.
It is not always all about the skiing – make sure you get restaurant and bar recommendations when you plan your trip
My whip cracking skills are second to none.
1 - Morzine
I first skied when I was 10 years old in Falls Creeks, Australia. However, as my nearest ski fields were over a 1,300km drive away it unfortunately was not a frequent holiday destination. After several trips to both the Australian and New Zealand resorts over uni, I soon discovered the fabulous ski resorts further afield in Europe and North American and just have not looked back since.
Stumbling across the Wengen SnowpenAir concert and seeing Bryan Adams and Kim Wilde preform – 80’s gold!
