I am absolutely thrilled to have been selected as an Ambassador for Ratoong, a rapidly-growing website whose aim is to help skiers and snowboarders to compare, search and rate ski resorts – like Trip Advisor for skiers!
As a middle-aged lady with a dodgy knee, I am not your archetypal Snow-Sports Ambassador, but what I lack in those departments, I make up with enthusiasm. Since we gave up work to travel, Mark and I have spent our winters on the snow with our four pooches, and prior to that, we skied for as many weeks as our jobs would allow.
I am delighted that Ratoong has given me the opportunity to demonstrate that snowsports are for everyone, regardless of age, ability or gender.
As Ambassador, I will be writing guest blogs throughout the year with the aim to inspire and inform. Here is my first one, which offers a few pointers on how to avoid injury and charts my sporting progress with an ACL (Anterior Cruiciate Ligament) deficient left knee.
I hope it helps to show that if I can do it, anyone can!
