Let it snow!

Last Thursday physios in all the resorts were affected by winds of up to 180kph and 80cms of fresh snow! Two of our girls who live in Tignes were stranded in Val D’Isere as a result of roads being shut due to avalanches and a 9pm curfew being imposed on the town. We would like to thank our friends at Consensio Holidays and Ski Total for looking after Jenny and Gemma so well for those couple of days. Even Chris had to spend a few nights where he was working in Val Thornes as an avalanche there shut the roads! A few days later and call is back to normal and we have some fantastic skiing conditions to make up for it!

Sian and Chris at the top

Aiguille de Fruit

Yesterday Ski-Physio Founder Sian along with her husband Chris and buddy Matt took on one of the steepest and highest mountain faces in Courchevel.

The Aiguille de Fruit sits at 3051m, and can’t be reached by bubble, button or chair lift but a long gruelling walk to the top with all your ski gear (unless you have a husband handy like Sian who can carry it for you).

After a quick pit stop at the top, the trio were rewarded with a crowd-less run that was a tad wind blown but some powder at the bottom.

Jones took home her first Winter X Games Europe slopestyle gold, the first woman from Great Britain to win a Winter X Games medal.

Jenny saw our physio Laura Ellam throughout the tournament, stating she was a ‘fantastic, very accommodating physiotherapist’.

Congrat’s Jenny on your win.

Laura and Lucy at the games

X Games update

Our physiotherapists in Tigne Laura and Lucy have been hugging the side lines of the X Games this week.

The girls say the resort has an exciting atmosphere and crowds are great, so don’t miss it if you’re in the area.

We here in the office are a tad jealous of Laura for managing to score a new pair of sunglasses after treating some of the Oakley crew.

Lisa Cordwell

Meribel 3 Valley Rally

Ski physio speed skier Lisa Cordwell took part in Meribel’s 3 Valley Rally yesterday.

The team (Rich, Lisa, Spuggy and Milky) were required to include one snowboarder and one female.

Completing the course in 2 hours 55 minutes, Lisa says all technique went out the window with poor visability on the mountain, managing to do some of the biggest jumps she has done without the intention to.

The team didn’t win (only 6 minutes behind first place) which probably isn’t a bad thing, considering the prize was a keg of beer!
