Polar Bear Award

In November 2012, and completely unexpectedly, I won the ‘Polar Bear Award’ for my “outstanding contribution to snowsports” during the previous 25 years. I was up against some pretty formidable opposition at the inaugural World Snow Awards during the London Ski and Snowboard show. But since new statistics that very week revealed that 64% of the UK population had never skied, I felt I still had rather a lot to do if I wanted to justify such a trophy!
