Favourite Ski Safari

To date it has to be the Yellowstone Ski Safari; where else can you be dwarfed by the spectacular Lone Peak, have a drink with a real cowboy, ride amongst elks in their refuge and step outside your comfort zone on one of the world's 12 most amazing ski lifts and come up smiling all in the space of 10 days?!

Best mountain moment

Skiing with my 4 year old for the first time in Laax. 'Mini shred' made it all the way down the blue to Falera without stopping, and loved it, hurrah! Closely followed by the Easter Chutes in Big White in February, lap after lap through the trees and fresh tracks every time.

Ski/ boarding history

5 ski seasons: La Plagne, Les Deux Alpes, Kitzbuhel, Serre Chevalier, Courchevel, and all the UK organisation in between.

Resorts visited in 15/16

Revelstoke, Sun Peaks and Big White in Canada, Zermatt in Switzerland, and Sauze d'Oulx in Italy.

Next trip

I'd like to take a look at the East coast.

Interesting fact

Boarding at -30°C you can forget about makeup - ice makes the most amazing mascara, perfect white and really long. Its a strong look!

Top ski trip recommendation

The Okanagan Ski Safari - except to switch Silver Star with Revelstoke and add on a day's heli-skiing with Selkirk Tangiers. The powder and the atmosphere in all three were amazing and the heli-skiing one of the absolute best things I have ever done!
