Watching the ski racers doing their warm ups in lycra in the British Championships last Saturday brought me back to my racing days when I was training for the euro test to finish my ISTD International Ski Teacher Diploma. Different to most my ski racing started at the age of 27years in twin tips and baggy pants as I didn’t have any money to invest in proper gear. But what I did have was a great feel for the edge and I wastn’t scared to go fast.

In the Espace Killy ski instructors can pay for their seasonal lift pass or you can opt for community service. I opted for the community service which involved gate control on the most sunniest day of the season on the British Men and Womens GS race. For four hours I watched closely a section of the course in the sunshine monitoring each racers line. For four hours I saw some amazing talent and great images. One picture was the amazing Cara Brown who completely dominated the field.

I was inspired, maybe I should dust of my GS skis and go for some big angles?
