A day with the Piste Busters


It is always fun to spend a day with the kids and I can recall few better days on the mountain than the Tuesday of half term. The lovely thing about skiing with children is that their enthusiasm and energy is infectious; furthermore this lot didn’t half ski fast! We met as usual in the Read More…

Off piste weekend


I am often asked how our off piste weekends work, or what makes them so special, or what a typical day is like. I am not expecting to answer all of those questions now, but having had a very good first day of this, our first off piste weekend of the winter, I am very Read More…

One lift for the rest of my life


A regular feature in Fall Line magazine has been “One lift for the rest of my life”.  As the title suggests the interviewee, usually some pro freerider, eulogises over their favourite lift and it has always got me wondering what lift I would choose if I was ever asked the question.  In the absence of Read More…

Farewell Schaffurggli T-bar


The takeover of the ‘Klosters-Madrisa Bergbahnen’ company by a group of Swiss investors in 2014 has heralded in a new era for the Madrisa mountain. The new Administrative Board of the Madrisa cable railway last year completed a successful capital raising campaign, enjoying huge support from the local community.

We arrived in Klosters late on Friday afternoon and after checking in at the hostel we went straight to Obrist to rent bikes before he closed.

Introduction
