Jimmy started skiing at the age of 7, but switched to snowboarding during a particularly bleak week in Tignes a few years later, and has never looked back. Having skied across Europe and North America, he was able to live the dream during a recent season spent in Whistler. Since returning to England, he has found working for Sno is proving to be the perfect cure for the post winter blues, as being able to help everyone else find their perfect holiday is just as rewarding as going on one yourself… almost!
