Autumn slideshows

I am currently having a quiet weekend at home recovering from a hectic work trip - 4 countries in 8 days, and a hefty road trip around the UK to test out the Baffin slideshow/presentation - this was my first attempt at this kind of thing and the response has been amazing! - Thanks to everyone who came out to the Ski Mountaineering Symposium and the Hawkshead Brewery/Alpine Club event- it was interesting to meet some Baffin 'veterans' including one who made a trip there in 1961!

If you would like to catch the Baffin presentation then the next opportunity will be at the Fort William Mountain Festival on Sat 18th Feb 2017...

Inspiration - Plake Interview and Salomon movie

Take the time to listen to this great interview with Glen Plake, one of my 'ski heroes' - great job from the guys at Powder!

I am also looking forward to seeing the full version of this:

Meanwhile, if you are in the UK in November I will be giving a couple of talks on this spring's Baffin Island trip, at the British Ski Mountaineering Symposium at Plas y Brenin on Sat 12th, and also in the Lake District on Weds 16th Nov - see the flyer below:
