Ski or Board?

Ski

Favourite Chalet?

“Sophia because it was the first chalet I stayed in when I arrived in Brev, and I think it has such cozy communal vibes, as well as beautiful views looking over the whole of the village.”

Favourite thing about Tignes Les Brévières?

“It feels like a rustic French village, compared to the rest of the resort, and has such quaint and beautiful chalets. Les Brevieres also has a nice family feel to it – everyone knows everyone, so it’s great to walk down the road and everyone you see knows you and says hello to you.”

Funniest skiing story?

“My friend and I who had both skied a lot in the past persuaded our other mate who’d never skied to come on a ski holiday with us, with the promise that we were beginners too. We went racing down a red run, only to then look behind us and just see a single ski sticking out of the ground. We then walked back up the mountain to find him off the side of the slope desperately hanging on to a tree branch to stop himself from sliding down that side of the mountain. Between us we helped him back on to the slope, but also spent a fair bit of time laughing at the sight of him clinging on to that tree.”
