After 10 ski seasons, 5 of which I established and ran my own chalet company and 6 summer seasons working overseas in France, Italy, Greece and New Zealand, I decided it was about time that I returned to the UK to make an honest living!
I worked for a well known sailing company for a number of years and was able to gain my Day Skipper certificate; however, that wasn't where my true interests laid and so I am now very lucky to be working for Scott Dunn in the Ski & Med Team. My absolute passion is skiing and snowboarding and so I feel I have found my ideal job in that I can talk all day about this industry and visit the fantastic properties we have in some of the world's top ski resorts.
What my guests have said
"Clare Leigh helped us and she was patient, responsive and really helpful, in a very unobtrusive way I would certainly use Clare again"
"Thank you so much for sending me the quote and for all your assistance and guidance in my reservation. You sound like a very nice lady and I found you to be highly professional in your approach."
"I feel like we might have set the bar for what the kids now expect from a vacation very high, don't know if we'll be able to top it next year! Thanks again for all your help, you've been a star!"
"Thank you for all your help today; I very much appreciate the attention and assistance that you have given me and I am delighted that we were able to get something fixed up in such short order."
"Thank you Clare. I think you've covered all our needs! You've been a great help. Thanks so much. If you can just fix for sunshine!"
"Thanks for all your help Clare. I had been searching for weeks and you nailed it first time!"
Favourite places I've been
- The first Olympic Winter Games were held in 1924, at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Chamonix, France.
- Don’t forget your driver’s license - hire a car/moped to see the sights and get off the beaten track.
- In the age of digital photography you can never take too many photos; they are the best memento of a vacation or once in a lifetime trip. Invest in a good camera and don't forget your battery charger!
My hot picks
Lots of cozy corners to enjoy a well earned vin chaud or biere! Excellent location and amazing mountain views to wake up to.
This villa has beautiful, well established gardens with really springy green lawns. Lying on one of the sun beds around the pool, sipping a cool drink provides the best spectator spot while the rest of your group play tennis on the grass court!
