Whistler and Vancouver Island
Getting back into skiing after a few years off and spending time on the slopes with the kids. Skiing Whistler mountain top to bottom with all three in April 2012 was fantastic, they even waited for me sometimes!
Worked for another Brighton-based ski tour operator for five years then took a break when kids came along. Started work at Ski Safari in 2011.
No trip due to kids' exams!
Whistler and Vancouver at Easter.
Worked as a ride tester at Eurodisney - along with some waitressing!
If you’re booking ski school, do two or three consecutive full day lessons rather than odd days here and there, or half days. You make much faster progress and then have the rest of your stay to practice and improve.
Make the most of any trip with some activities and sightseeing tours - most resorts and cities have plenty of options to choose from. Helicopter sightseeing in Whistler is my favourite so far!
