Selfies

Despite what you may think, taking a selfie is no easy matter! A sucessful selfie requires long arms (or a selfie-stick) and amazing scenery!

The chair lift selfie: this is a classic but it works every time! Top tip: give your camera/phone to whoever’s sitting on the side of the chair lift!

The selfie “with my instructor”: useful for showing off with your friends!


@babettegrunder


The artistic selfie: you’ll need to think deeply for this one, and give full rein to your artistic flair!

Fancy Dress
If you fancy having a blast on the slopes and taking a stack of fun photos home with you, fancy dress is for you!

Mario Kart outfit: apparently Mario always gets to the bottom of the slopes first!

Crayola crayons: a fab way to do do a bit of advertising as you ride!

Snowmen
It takes talent to build a good snowman. And it takes even more talent to build a Jurassic Park style T-Rex out of the snow!
