Alpine Skiing

Tim has been a keen skier for over 30 years and passed the Scottish Snowsports Alpine Ski Leader in 2004 and the BASI 1 Alpine Ski Instructor in 2016. He owns a 6-bed ski apartment in Chamrousse, France, which is available for booking during the main ski season (mid-December-mid-April). The photograph above shows Chamrousse and the apartment is in Les Balcons de Recoin which is in the centre of the photo. More details about the accommodation are available at this link:
