Women’s Mountain Club Chamonix

This last week I have been skiing with the Women’s Mountain club Chamonix. It is a preseason ski tweaking and getting the legs ready for the winter ahead. It was run by a group of amazing women; Rachel, Fay, Sian and Ali. The groups are small and manageable and you really feel improvements are made no matter what level of skiing you are.Β  It is the 3rd year in a row that they have run this awesome week in Breuil-Cervinia and people come from nearby, UK, Norway and Germany last year. We have loads of fun with like minded people sharing a passion for skiing and laughter. The area links to Zermatt so it is a fantastic ski area and the Matterhorn is ever present…Β 

Cervinia is 2000m above see level. The highest cable car on the Cervinia side goes to plateau Rosa at 3500m and the Matterhorn Glacier paradise which goes even higher on the Zermatt side, The highest gondola in the Alps at 3883m high. The ski areas are all linked making it a large ski area and really awesome at this time of year as not many people are around.Β

      I love the skiing but not the cold.. It’s the sitting at home when you are not exercising that makes me colder.. πŸ˜‰
