Season 2 - Weekly Reviews

Week 16 Posted by Len at 10 Mar 2007 10:10 AM
My last week as the Ski Club of Great Britain Rep for Jackson Hole and this week felt like a real week of repping as I had a slightly more 'normal' mix of members rather than the two weeks of...


Week 15 Posted by Len at 3 Mar 2007 10:53 PM
This week started with a bit of a standard beginners repping error; I failed to ski to the advertised standard, which is fine if everyone is above the advertised standard, but I'd misread one of the member's abilities and pushed...


Week 14 Posted by Len at 24 Feb 2007 10:50 PM
My first week of repping and things went pretty well; though it's damn hard work leading small groups of really good skiers around a really challenging resort! My first day was quiet, very quiet, nobody turned up at the meeting...


Week 13 Posted by Len at 17 Feb 2007 10:29 PM
After just over a week back in London my season continues with a three week trip to Jackson Hole where I'll be the Ski Club of Great Britain rep. The trip didn't start particularly well as the airline lost some...


Week 12 Posted by Len at 3 Feb 2007 10:28 PM
A short week as we returned to London on Tuesday. We had one fast and furious day and one more chilled day and both of us are now in need of a rest! Due to the changes in my season...


Week 11 Posted by Len at 27 Jan 2007 10:24 PM
Another good week with varied weather, there seems to be a theme developing here. Still, at least we have good snow here and we had a great day on Friday with a guide and some wonderful off piste conditions! The...


Week 10 Posted by Len at 20 Jan 2007 08:18 PM
Another week as the Ski Club of Great Britain Rep for Klosters for Gaelle and another week as 'official hanger on and back marker' for me. Maria and Milky were out to visit this week, which was nice. The way...


Week 9 Posted by Len at 13 Jan 2007 08:10 PM
This week had some good snow and varied visibility and Gaelle had quite a few Ski Club members to ski with. All in all everything went well and we both had a lot of fun. The week ended with some...


Week 8 Posted by Len at 6 Jan 2007 06:58 PM
After recovering from all the travelling and then from the New Year festivities Gaelle and I explored the Davos and Klosters area and the snow started to fall. I finally got to ski my new skis, Scott Missions, and, once...


Week 7 Posted by Len at 30 Dec 2006 11:56 PM
It's Christmas! Well, it was. I had a very chilled Christmas in Morzine with Phil, Tracey and the gang and we skied a bit on what little snow there was... I then packed up and drove back to the UK...


Week 6 Posted by Len at 23 Dec 2006 10:38 PM
This week was a refreshing change of pace. Up until now it's been all work (I know, no sympathy from anyone!) and this week felt much more like a holiday. It was great to catch up with Phil and Tracey...


Week 5 Posted by Len at 16 Dec 2006 06:38 PM
The second, and final week of the Ski Club Reps Course was better than the first for lots of reasons......


Week 4 Posted by Len at 9 Dec 2006 06:27 PM
This was the first week of the Ski Club Reps Course, it was hard work with plenty of skiing and lectures in the evening and then dinner and obligatory partying in the evening. Three days of performance training which was...


Week 3 Posted by Len at 2 Dec 2006 01:28 PM
During this week I felt that some of the improvements from last week had really stuck and become part of my skiing, which was great. We then added some more elements to the mix, or increased the focus on some...


Week 2 Posted by Len at 25 Nov 2006 09:18 AM
The second week of slalom training went very well. I feel like I'm improving but there's still a lot of work to do if I want to try my hand at the "test technique". Blair's a great coach and we've...


Week in review: 1 Posted by Len at 18 Nov 2006 05:33 PM
I drove out, stayed over in St. Gervais with Lucy and collected my new skis. Due to the wind we only skied 3 days out of the 6 that we should have but the training was great and I'm already...
