I am dedicating this blog in the memory of Eric Rousseau. You probably didn't know Eric, although you might have, he did travel to Europe as a member and last year captain of the Canadian team at Interski, a collaboration held in Europe to unify the techniques of skiing and instruction. He would have been the funny Frenchman, charming any lovely ladies. He would have been the life of the party, making Donald Duck noises and exclaiming " Oh,la,la!" any time he was trying to emphasise something.

We're very excited about this! We've just confirmed that we'll be giving away a holiday to one lucky winner from the British Ski+Board Show in Birmingham, and it's not just any old holiday either - this really is the creme de la creme, worth around £2500!

It's October. Leaves are turning golden, the harvest moon will be rising soon, and six or so weeks until Whistler/Blackcomb chairlifts start turning! I'm starting to notice new faces in town, a sign the winter is coming. Second weekend in October also brings us Thanksgiving for us Canadians. A day dedicated to roasting a big turkey and spending the day in from the cold watching four hour long movies. One last feast with the family before the harvest is brought in and the fields are left bare, looking at a long winter of rationing the summer's crop. With my family 500 km's away, and without wheels of any kind to get there I celebrated Thanksgiving in a different way. Instead of mash potatoes and gravy I will be indulging in the Whistler/Blackcomb Turkey Sale!

It's that time of year when the MadDogSki bloggers get to see the first snowfalls of the season, dusting the tops of the mountains and smelling all fresh and full of promise.


13th October 2011

Are your thoughts beginning to turn to all things snowy? Fancy really immersing yourself in it for a few days? If so, you should probably come and see us at the British Ski+Board Show in Birmingham. 

It's on Friday the 28th to Sunday the 30th of October, in the Birmingham NEC, and it's always fun. Get bargains, plan your holidays, see ski aerialists do scary things on the indoor ski jump and trampolines, get a ski lesson on the Skill Slope, watch an awesome ski film premier and... best of all come and see team MadDogSki.

We’ve had a strange summer in Austria. There have been a few hot and sunny weeks, but also lots of rain. And when it rains in Austria – it rains. None of this damp, thin drizzle you get in the UK, but proper – bouncy – rain. My wife says it’s ok, it’s just practicing for the winter snow. And now the winter snow has arrived. It’s probably not yet ready to stay for the season, but we have a thin covering at village level, and two feet at the top of local mountains.

For most families, bound by school holidays, skiing during the Easter holidays represents the best value for money, in comparison to Christmas and half-term school holidays. With most schools breaking up on Friday 27th March and Good Friday falling earlier on 3rd April, the choice of where to ski is broader with many resorts at that time still looking forward to another few weeks of the season.
