Ski or snowboard?

I have always been a skier since my first school trip in Year 8! I like the use of two separate legs. Absolutely up for the challenge of learning how to board in the future. 

Name three people you would like to ski down a black run with.

  1. Eddie the Eagle, what a fun experience that would be!
  2. Tony Hawk, a legend of my childhood!
  3. Kelly Sildaru, she’s an excellent freestyle skier and I could learn a thing or two from her.

Where in the world would you like to ski/snowboard?
I would really love to visit Courchevel, its home to the largest ski area and would be an insane adventure. I really enjoy exploring new runs. 

What’s your fashion style on the slope – bright and garish or plain and simple?
My ski attire is very simple - black and white with a crazy pair of goggles!

Big air or really fast? 
I am on the journey to practicing my big air, it's very early days. I love the rush from landing a jump (A rare occasion at the moment!)

First lift / last lift or both?
Aim for both! Spending the entire day on the slopes is such a joy, having lunch sat in the snow with stunning views is a highlight of a ski day.

What are the 3 things that makes Val Cenis perfect for a school / group ski trip?

  1. Without a doubt, top of the list is ski in and ski out accommodation - it eliminates the fuss of transport to and from the accommodation every day.
  2. The variety of runs for all abilities - Val Cenis has Europe’s longest green run.
  3. The beautiful traditional town. The chalet is minutes from pizza, bowling and local shopping!
