Catherine is a freelance travel journalist who has lived near the Pyrenees France since 2009 when she moved from London to be closer to the mountains (amongst other reasons). She first skied on a school trip aged 14, worked a season in Meribel in her 20s and forced her children onto skis when they could barely walk. She writes about skiing and travel for many national newspapers, magazines and websites, and is also author of Travelling with Children: A Parent’s Guide.
