Dan & Mini

A couple with a love of entertaining, laughter, fine food, good wine and the great outdoors - we like that alot!!

Based: La Tzoumaz
Hometown: Woking and Hullbridge

Dan and Mini met in 1994 whilst working on private yachts and soon realised that they had a lot more in common than just sailing. Hiking and cycling (whether road or mountain bike) in the summer and a real passion for skiing and ski touring in the winter. Heading into their 10th season (2017/18) in the chalet they had built as a catered chalet, and managing a dozen lovely self-catered properties, it's a passion that hasn't dimmed.

Skiers or boarders


Favourite place to ride in your home resort

Mini; The trees around Tailley and that bit of forest they cleared a couple of years ago after a huge storm.

Dan; Vallon d'Arbi

Years riding

Not enough fingers and toes for either of us.....

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

BC or Japan...Japan or BC, but a day wouldn't be enough ;0)

Favourite dish to eat in the mountains?

Rösti - grated potato cake baked with local cheese and ham and topped off with a fried egg. Goes great with a glass of Fendant, one of the local wines (we didn't know the Swiss made wine either!)

    So much snow ! Verbier and Bruson may be completely closed but La Tzoumaz has the telecabine and the Taillay chairlift open, as well as the nursery slope 😁

    Fabulous skiing this weekend! The link to Verbier opened from La Tzoumaz, and the snow's here, so we ski toured up on Sunday morning (after 10-15cm on Saturday) in sunshine and blue skies, but properly cold -7C or so. The ski back down was in lovely light powder!
