Wondering what -29 feels like? Well, the hair inside my nostrils turned to ice as I skied downhill, which feels as weird as it sounds! And at night, well, you want to wrap up well to walk to dinner even if you’re just walking across the village; thermals and padded waterproof outerwear is the uniform. It’s the kind of place you have to take wearing layers very seriously, and make sure you have ski glove liners and fantastic socks!
Keeping active helps, of course; as does hot chocolate in front of an open fire.
