Heading off on my first ski trip at school to Bulgaria was a fantastic introduction to snow sports and from that point onwards, I made sure I was booked onto every trip to the mountains I could get myself on. This culminated in a jaunt over to Killington and experiencing the mountains on both sides of the Atlantic before realising my calling was to encourage as many people to travel as possible.

Interesting fact:

Skiing is not actually my first passion and truthfully, my perfect ski day would be a leisurely breakfast before a couple of hours heading down some corduroy slopes.  I’d follow this with some lunch on a sun kissed terrace accompanied by a nice bottle of wine before retiring back to a lovely hotel to relax in the spa.  I’d finish the day with some traditional mountain fayre

What inspires you?

Being able to send guests all over the world to experience different cultures and see different sights. We’re fortunate enough to live in a time when travel is becoming more and more accessible and I think it’s enabling us to become a generation of more worldly and better rounded individuals who understand how important travelling is.

What's your favourite resort, and why?

Banff is by far my favourite resort. The scenery is unrivalled and there’s nothing more humbling than standing on Banff Avenue looking up at Tunnel Mountain. It’s a unique feeling and being in a National Park and so close to all of the wildlife is just a fantastic addition to any visit be it in the winter or summer.

My next trip:

A weekend break to Europe I think but the destination is to be confirmed as I prefer to just decide on a Monday and fly on the Tuesday.
