Mark

Freelance business and marketing manager in The Tarentaise Valley. Building dreams, riding mountains.

Based: Les Arcs
Hometown: Lichfield

Life, like dubious fashion, is cyclical. After 3 seasons early on, Mark took a 10 year hiatus in Paris to get to grips with French Culture and learn some Gaillic shrugs. But now he's back in the mountains and causing a stir. By day he builds the HUSKI brand as it's marketing manager. When he's not revolutionising the food for self-catering holidays, he rides around Les Arcs like Jeremy Jones (before Jeremy Jones was good), you probably won't see him though, his LUGE app says his max speed is 130 kmph.

Favourite place to ride in your home resort

On the rare occasions when deep snow low down corresponds with my time off, then bouncing around in the trees down to Villaroger is insane fun. Obviously getting a guide and going off the Aiguille Rouge and being Jeremy Jones for the day is pretty special.

Years riding

I've been on boards of one sort or the other for about 20 years. Going by that, I really should have more skills.

If we could send you to any resort in the world for a day where would you go?

f the sun is shining, there's snow to be had and a mountain to ride down, you can send me anywhere, anyplace, anytime.

Favourite dish to eat in the mountains?

Eatin's cheatin'.
