Lives: London
Likes: Skiing, Football (Leeds United), Cinema and making a fool of myself in Fancy Dress!
Dislikes: not skiing!
Occupation: Managing Director, Quit The Gym (check out my website)
Comments: I am 30ish and have been living in London for 5 years now, although I am a Northerner by birth. I started skiing when I was 14 and have been every year since - nothing makes me happier than fondue, skiing and a glass of vin chaud! This will be my third trip and I am really looking forward to it as I will be able to show people why I love the mountains, especially to people who haven't had the opportunity before.

Lives: London
Likes: Skiing, Amateur Dramatics, Being fit
Dislikes: The process of getting fit!
Occupation: I work for the Virgin Group
Comments: I grew up in Birmingham but have been living in London for 5 years now. My first experience of skiing was when I was 6 years old but I did spend much of my time asleep on the side of the mountain then! Not one to be deterred, I have been crazy about skiing ever since. In my spare time I dabble in a bit of amateur dramatics and attempt to stay fit... I say attempt because my last serious exercise endeavour saw me hobbling for a week afterwards! I am very excited about the trip and hope everyone will come back as enthusiastic about skiing as I am!
