Some of you will remember that MadDogSki launched in 2005 with just four ski resort guide books. Since then we’ve added many lovely resorts to our repertoire and created a community of people who love skiing as much as we do.

Kate was the driving force behind our expansion in the early years and she has now decided it’s time to take a step back. (As you can imagine, she has already lots of plans on how she will be spending her time.) And, after four years at MadDogSki, I am absolutely thrilled to be the new owner: rest assured we’ll be continuing our mission of helping people have better ski holidays.

Happily, you’ll still see blogs from Kate alongside our other bloggers but in the meantime both she and I want to thank you all for your support over the years – we genuinely could not have done it without you.
