Early season powder.

Went out for a quick look around in Courchevel today. The hill seems to be shaping up nicely - looking pretty white for the time of year...

A wintery Grand Bec:

Perfect corduroy, ready for the invasion:

Busy times... Kendal Mountain Festival

Not long back from another hectic weekend working on the presenting team at the Kendal Mountain Festival.

Highlights include introducing a certain Mr Glen Plake to a packed house on the Saturday night - a true living legend of skiing & genuine nice guy:

Also top of the list were the film "A Life Ascending", and Timmy O'Neil's lecture - off the wall, innovative, completely mad, but fantastic!

Some classic footage from the French TV archives - they don't make 'em like this any more!
