- Watch Out For Henry !
Henry is about to embark on his annual autumn tour and details can be found below.
The Arc’teryx Avalanche Awareness ‘Ride Hard, Ride Safe!’ tour kicks off on 23 October in Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports, Manchester (Castlefield), and moves on to various other EB stores in London and Bristol.
It is a series of fascinating multi-media avalanche awareness talks presented by Henry. Henry shows how off-piste skiing is packed with fun, but also how close you can come to dangerous situations if you’re not paying attention. He delivers a risk management formula that will help you understand that riding off-piste doesn’t have to be any more dangerous than your normal everyday activities.
Most of the talks are on ‘The Essentials’ of avalanche safety. These are the ones that people need to see first.
There are also a couple of more ‘In-depth’ talks, in Manchester and Covent Garden, where Henry moves our knowledge on a step further.
People can find all the details of the tour, dates and ticket sales on this link: http://www.henrysavalanchetalk.com/uk-events-programme-2013

- Canada and Spain seem like ages ago!
We’ve had a fantastic summer with a trip to Canada followed by a couple of weeks in Spain, but that seems like ages ago now as the weather has turned and another ski season is just around the corner. Fortunately, Millie and Katie have been granted permission from their school to return to Val d’Isere for what will probably be their last winter in France, as schooling will start to become an issue. Look out for the three Watson girls as they’ll be trying to make the most of this season!
The bookings are starting to roll in so don’t hesitate to let me know your dates to avoid disappointment. We’ve had a slight price increase this winter as we’ve held our prices very steady over the past five or six seasons, but the time has come and the new prices are on the site.
I’m going to play as much golf as I can squeeze in before the snow flies and I look forward to seeing you all soon. (Summer photos are on the blog and check out Clare’s for anyone looking for horseback riding and mountian biking)
PS I’m jolly grateful for a point against the Saints yesterday!

We’ve just arrived home from a scorching two weeks in Spain. I’ll post some photos in the next few days and write an update. Stay tuned!
