Spring snow is finally here…

So, I’m off to Grindlewald tomorrow. As well as skiing, I’ll be there for the celebrations of the centenary of Europe’s oldest railway project, the Jungfrau Railway.  The construction of the first railway in the high Alps was a momentous achievement. Around 650 000 people from all over the world visit the Jungfraujoch every year.

I’m then making a quick hop over to Italy, where I’ll take part in The Ski The World Challenge. Over the weekend I’ll be part of a two man team attempting to ski the combined vertical drop of the highest peaks in each of the world’s seven continents – over 43,000 metres – equating to 50 loops on a chairlift or 35 on the gondola. This inaugural Ski The World Challenge is to raise money for the Make a Wish foundation and will take place in the Italian resort of Courmayeur.
