We had a brilliant time skiing and myself, mum, Leanne and Luke thought that you were brilliant instructors, in fact the best that we have experienced in a ski resort.

Spring Skiing

It’s ages since I last wrote a blog. Why? Well, it’s been fantastic here over the last month or so, truly fantastic spring skiing. Yes it starts to get sloppy in the afternoons but after so many years in the hills we’ve learned the way forward is to embrace that. So a power ski in Continue reading →

High Season Part 3

Another full on week here in Les Gets & Morzine comes to a close and not even the promise of fresh powder can tempt Joe up for a ski on his day off today! The snow has been fantastic and there’s plenty more where it came from apparently, which must have made the problems with Continue reading →

High Season in the Alps – Part 2

One of the big attractions of Snowsports for many people is the technology it employs. Everything from Kevlar gloves to boot heaters to fat skis, I know guys (& girls) who will happily sit for hours comparing notes on set up, side cut & the merits of wick away underwear. Nothing wrong in that, whatever Continue reading →

High Season in the Alps – Part 1

The current beautiful conditions were too good to miss and even though I think both would appreciate a Continue reading →

To Ski or Not to Ski?

Awoke this morning to snowflakes falling gently and a triumphant sun wedging its rays through the leaden clouds. Goody! Fresh snow! But how to make the most of it? I’m like a kiddy in a sweet shop on days like this! Of course there’s skiing, or I could go for a snow shoe, or skin Continue reading →

What did we do before technology? off piste follow up

Further to my article in Yodel/blog on off-piste skiing and the continued deaths due to a very unstable snow pack and avalanche deluge in the alps this season, here are some more thoughts on the subject. I learnt to ski in the 1980’s and like lots of people when I first ventured off the pisted Continue reading →

Tips for off-piste For many, light fluffy powder is the heady reward of the season or holiday and what keeps us sane after the storms have passed in the mountains. I’m not trying to scare or deter people from this exciting side of the sport but thinking of the deaths in the Chamonix valley every Continue reading →
