Snowboarding in the SkiWelt

The girls trip is now an official annual fixture! In 2018 we headed to Western Italy and explored some of the local ski fields of the Piedmont region, in 2019 we spent a long weekend in St-Jean de Sixt, France. For 2020 we had the opportunity to try Austria and it’s largest connected ski area,…

Review: Wear Colour Women’s Ida Snow Jacket

The time had come – my well-worn Bonfire snowboarding jacket was starting to show its age (it had lasted the best part of eight winters) and so I needed to find myself a new one! I hate buying new clothes, especially expensive new clothes, so after much searching online, I was set on the Wear…

Snowboarding in La Clusaz & Le Grand Bornand

After last years girlie ski weekend we were all keen to make it an annual fixture on the calendar. This year we decided to head to St-Jean de Sixt and the ski areas of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand. So after almost a year in the planning, a last-minute accommodation cancellation and 10cm of…

After the heaviest snow falls in Bath that I can ever…

The Big Bang Snowboard Show at Tamworth

The annual Big Bang Show by TSA was held over the weekend of the 14 & 15th of October at the Tamworth SnowDome and it is a fab opportunity to demo the new seasons boards as well as doing some coaching sessions for FREE! We decided to make the trek up from South West for…

Late Season Skiing in Civetta, Italy

I thought I would have to forego my yearly visit to the mountains due to the arrival of our second child in February, but after a trip to the pub (where the best plans are made!) we managed to sneak in a last minute trip at the very end of the season. Hastily arranged flights…

Snowboarding in Les Gets with the Family

Choosing a destination for a winter holiday is becoming more tricky with an increasing number of factors to take into consideration. This year we picked Les Gets and we were not left disappointed. This years group was all about family, me, my husband our two year old, my sister and my Dad and his partner….
