Wednesday 15th saw the annual free day offered by Courchevel where they open 2 pistes for 1 day. Now being polite in previous years things have not gone entirely smoothly, whether it’s the weather or scheduled on a weekend. This year however went without a hitch. Midweek opening, 50cm base at the summit, well groomed pistes, blue bird day and free hot chocolate, it was as

If you have an Iphone that is more than a year old it is very likely your lightning cable looks like mine. Even though it works perfectly its not very good aesthetically for an original cable.

My biggest problem is the price. Over the years the Hero camera price has been slowly climbing $300 - $400 and now $500 making it the most expensive Hero to date.

Since starting my YouTube channel and posting drinking videos I have found there are two type of spirit drinkers. One who will always stay with the safe and vanilla brands. They will always drink Gordons, Smirnoff, J&B etc. Don’t get me wrong there is nothing intrinsically wrong with these brands but they are the alcoholic equivalent of driving a ford mondeo. The will dr

Summer is over and as if by clockwork as the ski lifts close the weather starts to get slightly more soggy. But as I look back over the past couple of months to some of the films I made, to glacier skiing in Tignes, to the flying visit down to Cannes and Monaco, Courchevel’s inaugural Redbull 400, the summer ski jumping world cup. With each one the quality gets a little b
