Why not whack the heating up to get the full effect? Just type ‘fireplace’ into the Netflix search bar and pick your favourite.
Light some seasonal-scented candles to really set the scene for the evening, such as these:
It’s Christmas — get the ski-chalet drinks flowing with our homemade vin…

You’d be hard pressed to find an active skier who hasn’t heard of the Three Valleys.
One of the most famous skiing areas in the world, it boasts breath-taking scenery, world class resorts, and is a huge priority amongst winter sports professionals and amateurs alike.
The Three Valleys consists of Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thorens, and is the largest skiing area in the world. All three are connected by extensive ski lifts along the mountain slopes. There’s an abundance of pistes, activities and events to get stuck into all year round.
If you aren’t convinced already, we’ve compiled a list…

In an ideal world your warm up routine should be specific to you. The exercises need to target areas where you feel the attention is most needed. Generally speaking, you need to target areas of the body predominantly exercised when skiing.
· Performance — You will ski better. Your warm up should help prime the muscle to respond better when skiing. Your range of movement, balance, coordination should all be tested in your routine
· Injury prevention — Should you have an accident or sudden unnatural movement you are far less likely to sustain an injury
· Feel better —…
Have you ever got to the finish line of a race course knowing you could have skied a faster line? I think that 99% of us would say absolutely!
Everyone has a different fastest line individual to them, for example Ted Ligety will have a very different line from the more direct Marcel Hirscher. The line of a racer can be determined by the skiers strength, technique, confidence, ski length/radius, inspection, snow conditions, weather conditions, terrain, rut line, set and more.
As you can see there are a lot of factors that contribute to picking your fastest line and we…
Mobility is often overlooked as one of the key physical reasons you may be struggling to reach your technical goals.
If you’re preparing yourself for a ski instructor’s exam, ski season, race training or even your family ski vacation, don’t just focus on the usual cardio program or leg and core work outs. While all of these components are necessary in helping improve your skiing it is also just as important to work on your mobility.
Through my experience working all over the world with ski racers, ski instructors and the average Joe in a ski lesson,
I have come…
There is no doubt that having the right instructor can make or break a ski holiday. Whether it’s for yourself, a client or your children, making sure you choose the right ski instructor is very important.
At Supreme Ski School we think this is essential and have built a diverse instructor team around this theory. During the booking process we try and have a good chat with our clients, by finding out a bit more about each individual taking part in the lessons we can identify which instructor in our team will be best suited to the booking.
In a comparative sense at least, spring skiing is something of a niche pursuit. The end of the season never has been and probably never will be the most popular time to hit the Three Valleys. But as those who’ve strayed from the flock to actually experience spring skiing will know, there are certain joys and pleasures that are 100% exclusive to the late season.
So how do the Pro’s choose? A set for every condition would be bliss, however, this would be highly impractical! A room full of skis but no cash left to actually go skiing or changing skis every run, would be an inconceivable waste of time. Next best option — find some skis that are awesome most of the time. Is there a guide for buying one set of skis? Not really, but as instructors we have some common rules of thumb to help us decide.
