Vanessa has worked in the ski industry for 20 years. She is a freelance Travel and Outdoor PR working over a range of clients in the UK and Europe. Vanessa has travelled extensively throughout the Alps, Pyrenees, Dolomites and North America and spent a season, 1996-7 living, skiing and travelling in and around Banff in Alberta, Canada. This winter, Vanessa is looking forward to spending the season opening weekend in December in St Martin de Belleville. In January & March she attempts a new challenge, the "Super 3"- a series of three amateur races in Belalp, Murren and Saas Fee (one of which is the Inferno, which she has skied before). She is taking her family (3 children & their Grandad!) back to Wengen in February, a resort she knows well and where her children learnt to ski. Her fitness challenge is set high for the season!
