Vanessa has worked in the ski industry for 19 years. She is a freelance Travel and Outdoor PR working over a range of clients both in the UK and in Europe. Vanessa has travelled extensively throughout the Alps and North America and spent a season, 1996-7 living, skiing and travelling in and around Banff in Alberta, Canada. She has three young children and loves seeing them zipping about the mountains. This winter, Vanessa is looking forward to skiing with her family in Arc 1950, taking advantage of the week kids have off school before Santa comes. Later in the season she will return to the Pyrenees and before that, revisit Murren for the 74th Inferno (attempted last season). Her fitness challenges continue with another leg of the South West Coastal Path planned for early May ‘17, as well as a marathon walk the week after. The 2016-17 ski season is her warm up!
