Ski Sunday Celebrity Ski Race

On behalf of all the Ski Sunday team, I would like to say a big thank you to both yourself and all of Momentum Ski for all the help and support you have given us with our new series. As you know the programme has gone in a new direction this year with a heavier focus on the lifestyle aspect of skiing. This meant we had to put more of an emphasis on shooting films which showed off the mountains to their full. With your help we were able to film a fantastic sequence in the Italian Alps up on the Monte Rosa massif with Graham Bell embarking on a trek from the Regina Margherita mountain hut. Thank you for arranging all the logistical aspects of the shoot for us; from the accommodation to our brilliant guide Carlo, and also the helicopter that enabled us to get some of the most impressive shots in the whole series. Even after just one show it is obvious that one of the most successful aspects of the new series has been the celebrity challenge, where 8 celebs take on our giant slalom course in Courmayeur. When we talked to you about this at the beginning of the season it was immediately obvious that this was the best place for us to hold the race. Everything was perfect, great accommodation at the Auberge de la Maison, an excellent (and very patient!) team on the race course and superb lunches all around the mountain. Our celebrities had a brilliant time and all now want to go back out to Courmayeur for a holiday!
