Congratulations to West Wales Ski Club coach, Chris Mountfield and the club as a whole
Well what a week it has been so far. After celebrating all the great achievements West Wales Ski Club have had over the last 12 months as well as prize giving f...ollowing our intra club race night, the icing on the cake was receiving an email on Monday morning to say that I have been shortlisted for Performance Coach of the Year at The Actif Carmarthenshire Sports Awards 2019!
I am grateful for the support and trust our club has put in not only myself but the team of coaches we have. For me, just the thought of being nominated was fantastic but to be shortlisted has been amazing.
Along with Menna Fitzpatrick and Jen Kehoe up for BBC Wales sports personality, hopefully we can grow the reputation of skiing further.
No matter what age you are, the clubs will welcome you and help you improve. Our age range is currently 5 - 67!
Finally thank you to Sam Kett Hodson and the committee at West Wales Ski Club for your support and all the members for making it worthwhile. Looking forward to a night out on 31st January!!!

Cracking skiing from our GB team this weekend.
Thanks for the update and summary Team Evolution Racing
Ski Racing. Is it really worth all the hassle? I mean, we’re British, we don’t have mountains, are we ever going to actually be any good!?
Well, yes actually.... Not content with letting @dave_ryding get all the attention with his storming first run in Levi, this weekend the rest of the @gbsnowsport squad have been smashing it in Scandinavia, albeit with a little less fanfare from the media.
@charlieguesty proved her EuropaCup victories from late season were no flukes, taking back to back podiums in Funesdalen, on a slope where she broke her back 5 years ago.
Whilst not quite on the podium, @alextilleyski achieved the unthinkable in scoring World Cup points in two different disciplines at the Killington World Cup, both from start positions well outside the top thirty and against the odds.
And as usual, @charlieraposo couldn’t let someone else have the attention, smashing in a brilliant 5th place in the opening EuropaCup GS of the season in Trysil against some ridiculous competition, and following it up with the 5th fastest 2nd in today from outside the 30.
All in all, a few days of phenomenal results that should be widely highlighted and celebrated. All the more so when you consider that these guys do it with almost no support and funding.
@charlieguesty self funds the majority of her programme, has no service man and has become an expert in managing her injury to avoid the reoccurrences that have held her back this far.
@alextilleyski made the difficult decision to move to a private programme this season, and whilst this brings with it additional financial challenges, it is notable to see how she has overcome countless mental hurdles in the past five seasons to show what she is capable of.
@charlieraposo, for all his drama and social-media, has grafted since he was a U14 with an undying self-confidence and commitment to being the best he could be, leaving home at 15 to move to America in pursuit of his dream, now competing against the biggest nations with just one hardworking coach and service man.
It seems like a key part of this process, part of learning to succeed against the odds, as in life, is the ability to overcome challenges. To get up when you've been knocked down, time and time again, until you achieve whatever it is you've set out to achieve. Thats what sport teaches you. Perseverance, determination and grit. And it seems actually, the Brits are pretty good at that.
Thanks to all of those unsung heroes who support these British Team athletes and believe in them and the possibilities of British athletes reaching the top of the podium.
