As if life wasn’t already good enough with all this sunshine and powder snow in the Alps, last week the gods of winter dealt me an incredibly special card.
A fortuitous meeting on the piste led to an invitation to go riding in the off piste with some of the best skiers in the valley – the instructors of 360 Ski School.
I was super excited, honoured and more than a little bit nervous about going out to shred with these guys but Jocelyn and his crew were amazing. We jumped off cornices, carved fresh lines in thigh deep powder, skied secret runs through the trees, and found lots of little hidden stashes of pow pow pow!!!
You always learn a huge amount from doing any sport with experts and no matter how nerve jangling a prospect it may be, you should always jump at the chance to go up a level. With the 360 guys I picked up tips, pushed my limits, learned more about my local area and most importantly, laughed a lot! So if you’re coming out to ski in Les Gets or Samoens and looking to make the most of the immense powder, then I strongly suggest giving the guys at 360 a call. In the meantime, here’s a little taster of what we got up to.
