How Summer in a Ski Resort Will Improve Your Skiing

The benefits of a summer holiday in a ski resort go way beyond fitness!

What? You’ve never seen the mountains green? You’re missing out! A woman once said, “Everyone should spend a summer holiday in a ski resort.” That woman was me.

I guarantee that the slopes in summer will offer at least as many thrills as they do in winter, the same stunning scenery – and wonderful wildlife if you’re lucky. Not only that, taking your summer holidays in a winter wonderland will help you to make the most of your time on the snow, perhaps in ways that you have never considered.

This is the second guest blog that I have written as an ambassador for Ratoong, the No 1 platform for skiers and snowboarders to search and rate ski resorts.

Lani, Rosie, Kai & Ruby – Our Pups on Piste!

Thank you so much to Lou at Waggy Tales Book Review & Dog Blog for her review of my latest book, Pups on Piste – A Ski Season in Italy.

“Pups on Piste is a humorous and incredibly informative factual account of the family’s exploits in a small Italian resort, well known for its off-piste skiing…

…The descriptions of Monte Rosa are outstanding, making the book a must-have Italian travel companion or a winter sports destination to add to the bucket list.”

There is still much you can do without ligaments!

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. Continue reading “A Life Without Ligaments – And How to Avoid It!”
