Last week it was time for my annual stint coaching IFMGA Guide Andy Perkins along with his friends Jim & Pete. Andy takes developing his skiing and our yearly top-up has been proving its worth again with great steps forward from all 3 and some cheeky steep lines being skied in good style…

The Maurienne valley seemed to have missed out on last Friday’s snowfall and been hammered by the wind instead, however with a bit of searching we found great snow to ski at 3 different areas on the 3 days – testament to a flexible approach and a bit (15 years) of local knowledge 🙂
