SwitzerlandZermatt Snow Report

Ski Club Leader's snow report

Barry Weston Barry Weston

Before I discovered skiing winter seemed so depressing. On a whim I signed up for lessons at the Rossendale dry slope. A year later I skied in the mountains for the first time. Wow, how could it be simultaneously warm in the sun AND snowy? That was more than 30 years ago but I still get that same sense of wonder on blue sky days. What has changed is technique and equipment. I can remember up-unweighting, down-unweighting and lift queue waiting, to name a few. Now we just roll on to those edges. For me the Club is all about meeting people for skiing and for the all-important apres-ski debrief. I’ve skied most large European resorts and a fair number in North America. The most obscure has to be the Arizona Snowbowl! I try to keep fit by cycling, circuit training and hill walking. In the summer I enjoy motorcycle touring. I love walking in the Alps particularly in the Italian Dolomites. I’ve recently come back to the joys of sailing, this time on a flotilla yacht rather than in a dinghy.
