Favorite Place to Ski
Favorite Day of Skiing
Christmas Day 2011. My friend and work colleague, Rowan, decided to go up on the hill for a taste of what was to be a great opening run. We both found ourselves on the top of a clean untouched Face de Chavet, extremely rare!! This was not a run to be taken lightly but after assessing the safety of the snow we decided to ski. It was the best run I have done in 21 seasons in Vald'Isere. Clean bottomless powder from top to bottom for over 600M, now that's what I call a Christmas present!
What is the best part about working for Surefoot?
Surefoot Val d'Isere is what skiing is all about. We are a hub for the local community and help every level of skier who comes to the resort improve and enjoy the best sport in the world: SKIING!
Something Interesting About Me
When I am not skiing I am fortunate to spend at least 1 month kiting the coast of Northern Brazil. If you haven't tried it, you're missing out. Good for ski legs too!
