I don’t think there is a single thing I dislike about skiing. Whether it be carving my way down a motorway blue run or dodging through the trees in knee deep powder, when there are skis on my feet, there is a smile on my face. Skiing does that to you, doesn’t it? It gets you grinning at temperatures you never thought you could be happy in!
Having skied every year since the age of 4 (barring my broke university years), I have skied in so many top resorts around the world. From the sheer piste miles of the Three Valleys to the beautiful Lake Tahoe in California, I’ve experienced some incredible places.
Spending last winter in Klosters, Switzerland, as a ski host only made me fall in love with the alpine lifestyle even more. What’s not to love about waking up to breathtaking scenery every morning?
I’m a bit of a sports addict. My journalism degree allowed me to complete specialist sports modules, which has lead me to writing about everything from skiing to cricket to American football. It’s a good job I like sport because, aside from that, there’s nothing I love more than good food. It takes a lot of skiing miles to work off that guilt-ridden pizza from the night before!
Since graduating from university, I’ve done a whole host of freelance work, writing for the likes of Fall-Line ski magazine, Outdoor Adventure Guide, The Cricketer and many more magazines. All of this, plus various editorships at different websites, has got me chomping at the bit to get started as the new Resort Reporter for Scott Dunn.
What is a ‘resort reporter’?
The resort reporter role is something brand new to Scott Dunn this season. I will be in Val d’Isère and Courchevel for the winter producing exciting content for not only this blog, but also the Scott Dunn social media channels and emails too! Keep your eyes peeled for snow reports, reviews and interesting tips to get you excited for your upcoming trip.
As well as that, I will be keeping your resort hosts and drivers up to date with the latest information so that you can make the most of your adventure. That way you need never miss an event or an activity you could be taking part in both on and off the slopes.
The opportunity to work in Val d’Isère is undoubtedly one of the most exciting aspects of the role. The skiing in the Espace Killy region is second to none in Europe and arguably the world. Kilometer after kilometer of pristine pistes and perfect powder, with the altitude almost guaranteeing a long season.
Combining the amazing skiing with the vibrant town, which plays host to some of the best après France has to offer, Val d’Isère is truly an exhilarating place to be.
How many days is it until the lifts open, again?
