“What are the Youth Olympic Games (YOG)? Is this for real? Is it brand new? Who participates? Is this made up?”

These are some of the questions I’ve been asked since people found out I am working with the communications committee for the alpine skiing host venue in Les Diablerets. I love questions, without them, we don’t get the answer we seek! So please, keep asking.

Please feel free to share this info. The athletes of tomorrow deserve our attention and I am extremely proud to be part of this adventure!!! We have just over one year to go and I am already excited!!!

Looking for Early Skiing in Europe – Try Glacier 3000 in Switzerland

On your marks, get set, SKI!

It’s that exciting time of year when skiers and snowboarders begin the process of ‘hurry up and wait’ for the winter season to commence. If you are desperate for some early ski season action, look no further than Glacier 3000 in Switzerland. Located at 3000m/10,000ft, the glacier has one of the longest ski season in Europe and will be opening THIS weekend: 28th October, to be exact!

Glacier 3000 is situated 7 minutes away from the Swiss town of Les Diablerets (a firm favourite on this blog), 90 minutes from Geneva international airport and is accessible by train, car and bus. What are you waiting for? Let the pictures speak for themselves…I see that 50cm/20inches of fresh powder fell this week!
