Who said the season is over? Spring skiing in Verbier

Phil Guernsey Le Roux lives for powder. The top level ski instructor and guide lives in the Swiss resort town of Verbier after many a season in Aspen and even Perisher in Australia. Put simply the man froths to ski.

Lucky Phil.

He scored fresh April powder in Verbier this week. Avalanche danger was high, as it has been all season in Europe with way too many deaths, so we’re thankful he stuck to the less steep terrain (his mum is too).

We’re also thankful he sent us this.
