Ski-phrase of the week...

Corduroy... Not the material that your dad's flares were made of in the 1970's, but the appearance of the pistes after they've been groomed by the piste-bashers into lovely parallel lines. A great feeling to be the first to ski over them !

Resort of the week...

Wengen... Grand old Swiss resort nestling on a ledge in the Jungfrau.

Brand of the week...

Colmar... Italian brand with a great ski-racing pedigree.

Ski-shop of the week...
