I spend most of the winter in Morzine, where I once ran a chalet.
I have written a series of books about my winter life called 'Skiing with Demons (1, 2 and 3). They document my experiences as a chalet host and my sometimes tempestuous relationship with skiing. My summer passion is fell walking and I try to spend most of it in the Lake District and on the Pennine Mountains.

I booked my first skiing holiday as soon as I had my first pay packet, and have been skiing almost every year since. I just love the combination of the continuing challenges of the sport, being in the outdoors, mountain scenery, winter sun and apple strudels (or tartes) galore.
Although I have skied in resorts from Canada through all the major resorts of Europe to Japan, as a family we enjoyed 15 years in Lech where our children all learnt to ski, whilst we took up ski touring. My more recent experience has been in the Valais, Switzerland. Although the full Haute Route is not for me, I have been able to enjoy many parts of it on day tours.
I have been a member of the SCGB since I started skiing. I met my husband in Courmayeur over 30 years ago, where we both skied with a SCGB leader. I took the SCGB ski leaders course in December 2017, and I am now looking forward to leading in different resorts in the Alps.
Please call me "Bob".
I was 45 when I first strapped a pair of planks to my feet but I was totally hooked from that first moment (in Les Deux Alpes) and there's never been a winter, since, without at least one ski trip. I've skied in France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Canada and, since 2008, I've been a Ski Club Rep, Leader, Ambassador and Rep again. I’ve skied with hundreds of Ski Club Members in the intervening years representing the Club mainly in France but also in Italy, Switzerland and Canada and in 2021 I’m returning once again to Les Deux Alpes (home from home). I'm looking forward to skiing with members Off-Piste on a Freshtracks holiday, providing support to Alex Armand (Chapman) and her team of Top Class Instructors. I love skiing, whether on or off-piste and I’m looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm for the sport and having some FUN with Ski Club Members for as long as the Club (and my legs) will let me.
