I’ll be at the annual Pendle Ski Club Open Day on Sunday 2nd October signing Ski A to Z first editions.

Pendle Ski Club Open Day offers free 30 minute fully instructed trial ski sessions from 10am until 4pm (arrive at 3pm for the last session). This is a great opportunity to get a taste for skiing and try the sport.

Pendle Ski Club is a member owned ski club in the Ribble Valley of Lancashire, home of Dave, ‘The Rocket’ Ryding, four times Olympian and Kitzbuehel Champion.

Looking forward to meeting lots of people at Pendle and helping to demystify skiing for those who are new to the sport with the tips, information and advice packed into the Ski A to Z book.

My Pendle BackStory

I always enjoyed racing and race training at Pendle, it is a well maintained slope fabulously situated for incredible far-reaching views, and of course the added mystique of the stories of the ‘Lancashire witches’ in that area.

Our school ski team won the North-West Ski Federation School’s Championship four years out of five at Pendle Ski Club which is probably a factor in my fondness for the slope.

I remember good times skiing with friends there, and in particular a weekend training camp when it rained constantly both days, great conditions for artificial slope skiing, but we were drenched, so it was comforting to have the cosy club house to get warm during our breaks.

Ski A to Z is an illustrated introduction to skiing published by Meyer and Meyer Sport (UK).

Franz Klammer with Ski A to Z!

A dream came true today! The legendary Franz Klammer now has a copy of Ski A to Z.

Thanks to Arnie Wilson for this picture and for introducing Franz to my book! This was Franz and Arnie at the Visit Austria golf day today.

Franz inspired me as the iconic ski racer as we were growing up. Having met Franz on a few occasions and been coached by him as a youngster, I’ve been keen for Franz to see my book.

I bumped into Franz at the Hannenkahm race whilst I was working in Austria teaching children to ski.

I can’t wait to see the film of Franz’s story Chasing The Line, which premiered in the UK last night.

Ski A to Z is published by Meyer & Meyer Sport (UK). For more information and and links to buy click here.

I will be there signing books and chatting to schools about how Ski A to Z can help pupils, parents and teachers to prepare for ski trips with school, and to have a great foundation in skiing.

I’ll have Ski A to Z books available, special bookmarks created especially for this event and more. If you’ve already bought a copy of Ski A to Z then bring it along for signing.

Here’s a picture from my first book signing at Ski Rossendale in Lancashire, UK, the artificial ski slope where my ski story began.
