 I spent last week at the excellent Hotel Moiry in Grimentz with the Eagle Ski Club. This is a regular event in the Eagle calendar and so we were able to book a big dump of fresh snow for the start of the week - and of course 5 days of blue skies to follow...fantastic conditions on and off piste and a lot of fresh tracks!

The group split into 2 doing alternate days of ski intruction with Tom Saxlund of New Generation Skiing and Alison Culshaw from BASS, and guided skiing with me. The result was an impressive improvement in everyone's skiing and an eye-opening first try of some wider skis for some!
