La Plagne to Val Thorens

Wow – a week here feels like a lifetime, our night out in La Plagne for Katie’s birthday a distant memory. We had the first injury of the season before we even got to our resort that night when Brad stacked it down the stairs to the bar and rolled his ankle. First shag of […]

Chalet Training in La Plagne

Big news hit yesterday: Ruthy is coming to visit! Even better, she’ll be staying for two weeks over Christmas and New Year! I am ecstatic. She is my friend who was supposed to be coming out here with me, and only decided a couple of months ago that a career in London would be a […]

We thought we had it sorted: short flight, itinerary planned, air bnb booked. The three days before we were due to travel, Phin logged into air […]

Volcano Houses and Albino Crabs

Having moved back to Leeds at the beginning of August for three months of working and saving before my ski season starts (I’m moving out to Val Thorens on the 30th November, eeee!), my feet were getting itchy and skin lacking the sunshine. What does this call for? A last minute holiday, obviously.  A mid-September […]
