Michael Bound

About me

I didn't start skiing until my 20s (a fact which I often trot out as an excuse for my skiing not being better than it is) but I'm now well and truly hooked. I'm happy on or off the piste and love skiing with other people similarly addicted. I'm a regular visitor to Tignes with my family where we have a small apartment. Other interests include mountain biking, tennis, photography and music, especially opera.

From: Mereworth, Kent, UK
Leader since: December 2009
Snowsports: Skiing, Ski touring

best skiing or snowboarding moment

A guided day in Verbier in which we skied the south face of Mont Fort, the Glacier du Petit Mont Fort, skinned across Grand Desert to Fenetre d'Alleves, then a long run down to the village of Pralong.

most embarrassing moment on snow

Hitting a death cookie in white-out conditions and breaking my arm while leading a group in Grindelwald.

To ski in Japan.
