Skier or snowboarder
Both. I prefer to snowboard off-piste and ski on the groomers.
Ski/ boarding history
A few ski holidays as a teenager spurred me on to working a winter season. After working in Morzine, I went looking for powder in Niseko, Japan which opened my eyes to destinations outside the French Alps. I can’t wait to visit more ski destinations...
Favourite ski safari
Rockies Loop - I haven't done it yet, but I'd love to experience a Canadian adventure and drive to all the steep challenging terrain on offer in the Rocky Mountains.
Best mountain moment
Boarding down the crater of Mount Yotei in Niseko on a bluebird day after a huge dump of snow.
Resorts visited in 18/19
Meribel, Courchevel, Val d’Isere, Morzine
Returning to Japan and off to see Scandinavia!
My dad was a world freestyle champion windsurfer in the '80’s. Which makes my lack of skill a little embarrassing.
Top ski trip recommendation
Be open minded about new destinations and use local/expert knowledge to maximise your time on the slopes and for après.
