Skier or snowboarder
Skier. I tried snowboarding once many years ago and was shockingly bad.
Favourite Ski Safari
It’s hard to pick a favourite but it has to be The Utah Ski Safari. The skiing is vast and varied and both Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park are stunning. I have done this trip twice now and it was even better second time around. The Whistler and Vancouver Island combination was also a fantastic trip and I loved the tranquillity and slow pace of Tofino.
Best mountain moment
Flying over the Matterhorn in a helicopter on a bluebird day and landing at the top of the Rothorn like a VIP. I felt incredibly lucky that morning.
Ski/ boarding history
I skied for the first time on a school ski trip and have since been skiing once or twice each winter. Although I’ve been skiing for a long time now, I find that a private lesson is a very good idea each year to boost confidence and banish bad habits.
Resorts visited in 18/19
Myrkdalen and Flåm – the Ski & Fjord Explorer Ski Safari
Squaw Valley and possibly Jackson Hole
Experiencing the mountain rescue at Kicking Horse first hand was certainly interesting, especially as it was -30ºC that morning. Let’s just say I wasn’t on an extreme run, I wish I could say I was! The ride in the blood wagon was fast, a little scary and slightly embarrassing as we were skiing with our resort host at the time, oops!
Top ski trip recommendation
Include a city stay to add another experience to your ski holiday. I would highly recommend San Francisco as it’s a fantastic city with so much to see and you can fit a lot into just a couple of days, I have been a number of times and love it there. Las Vegas is also an amazing place and somewhere that everyone should visit, it has to be seen to be believed.
