My First Time Skiing: With Powder White part 1

Wednesday 16 December 2015

Last week I had just got back from my first time skiing. I went to Val D'Isere in France and well, I think I fell in love. If you go skiing, you will probably know what feeling I'm talking about. There is just something rather magical about it.

I was lucky enough to be invited on Powder White's press trip and so after flying to Geneva and then taking a rather long journey to Val D'Isere, I finally got to see what the fuss of skiing was all about. 

Powder White are a UK ski tour operator who specialise in bespoke packages. They can arrange everything from the accommodation, ski hire, lessons, right down to your ski pass. It basically means you don't have to worry, which trust me, I found out there are so many components in skiing, that sometimes it's just so much better let the experts handle it.

We stayed right in the town centre in one of their chalets called the Marwari which was just what I hoped for- a cosy, cute cabin style chalet with a real fire. 

Also if you are heading to skiing soon, and are looking for ski wear, my jacket and trousers were from Bench and my gloves and neck warmer were from Roxy. So check them out for your ski needs.

I'm going to write a more detailed post next week about it all with more lots more details plus some gorgeous, gorgeous photos, but today is all about the vlog. 

So hope you enjoy, and stay tuned for more real soon. 


  1. Ahhhh, so insanely jealous, I want to get back on the slopes right now! I couldn't ski either, until I worked as a chalet host in France and Austria in 2012 and 2013. You picked it up much quicker me than me though haha!
