Hello & welcome to my site!
My name is Clare. I am a ski instructor, mountain mum and all round lover of the great outdoors! I live in the French alpine resort of Val d’Isère which, along with Tignes, makes up the vast Espace Killy ski area.
I started skiing at the age of 5 on family holidays and my love of the sport grew from there. After studying Psychology at university I embarked upon a career in Clinical Psychology but could not ignore the call of the mountains. I came to Val d’Isère in 2006 and have never looked back. After a few years of “back-to-back” winters between Europe and New Zealand (and snow centres in the UK) I have now settled in this one wonderful place with my husband and two children.
I have set up this blog to share my love of all things skiing & mountain related. I will also keep you up-to-date with the goings on in the Espace Killy as well as trying to answer some of the most “frequently asked questions” about holidaying in the mountains/Val d’Isère/Tignes by passing on my own personal insights, hints & tips.
