In the thick of it

What a great way to start the week. It's been snowing since some time last night and there's more promised over the next few days. Time to find some fat skis...

How many skis can you ski at once?

Christmas came early at Chalet Edelweiss: a car full of Scott goodies rolled up first thing this morning. Not just  Herve, Scott's ski designer, and Steve, Scott UK's general manager but a range of freeride skis as well as brand new ski outfits for us both. Penny's will without doubt convince female clients they should check out Scott's great clothing range. Mine will ensure clients don't lose me in a crowd, or in a snowstorm, unless they want to.
After yesterday's snowfall, trying out the new kit was even more fun than expected - I would never have guessed we'd be skiing powder today from the Corne de Sorebois. And with just racers up there, sticking to their gates, we had it all to ourselves, doing laps from the top chair. Another tough day at the office for the Scott guys and a taste of the season to come for us. Heaven.
