Some of you who know me will be aware how pathetic I am in conversations about TV programmes. It’s not because I’m rude, it’s just that, well, how do I say it…. I don’t watch TV. Phew, that didn’t feel so bad making it public.
Some of my regular clients are stunned when they mention household names and popular programmes, and I haven’t got a clue about what and who they are talking about. According to many clients apparently I’m supposed to look like Heston Bloomingtal, or someone named similar to that. For ages I had no idea if that was a compliment until I Googled him; still not sure!?! As for X Dancing, Come Factor, Big Bother and The Apprenticeship ……. completely lost.
So why am I banging on about TV programmes, let me explain. My wife Harriet reckoned last night that I was looking a little pooped due to a hefty workload recently. She suggested I relaxed in front of the TV, after nearly choking on my glass of wine, I succumbed.
She kindly switched on the TV for me, and found a channel called BBC1. OMG, what an amazing experience? In front of me was a visual feast of stunning, beautiful scenery with exotic wildlife. This wasn’t any old landscape I’m talking about, it was the Arctic, or was it the Antarctic, not sure. Note to self, must concentrate more instead of just focusing on the photography.
Speaking of which, after being reminded about snowy landscapes last night, here are a few of my favourite photographs from last winter.
They are in no particular order of preference.
Just fun times recorded, in the gorgeous surroundings of Méribel.
So I’m now officially very excited about this winter. I’ll be leaving Leamington Spa this weekend, and arriving in Méribel on Monday for yet another winter season of fun and adventures. What is it that makes us winter sport lovers so childlike with excitement? It’s tough trying to describe it to non-skiers isn’t it? But us skiers only need to nod to each other, don’t we?
P.S. That TV programme I mentioned earlier, don’t know if it’s well known or not, I think it’s called ‘Freezin Planet’. Check it out and spread the word, I reckon it could be very popular. ‘A la semaine prochaine’.
Transport yourself to the slopes of Meribel with MH2ski's blog. All of life is there. Philosophy. Croissants. Fine wine. And skiing, lots of skiing.

Hi everybody, and welcome back to another post from your favourite blogging Méribel Ski Instructor. Today I thought that I would write about a subject that can dominate many skiers holiday - the infamous 'Intermediate Plateau'. This description can be given to those skiers that are able to competently ski on blue and red pistes, in lovely weather and with good snow conditions.
