The best tough cameras for skiing

The choice of cameras for skiing can seem overwhelming. Helmet mounted sports action cams to capture your epic descents to large DSLRs to create stunning high quality landscapes. But what if you wish to capture beautiful photographs of friends and family, simply, quickly and without the need to rummage in your bag, or adjust numerous settings? 

I have been a photographer for over ten years and in my experience a small, easy to use camera is a big advantage in getting those memorable images on the slopes. It is accessible when I need it and when I want to concentrate on skiing I can do so without worrying about camera damage.

Places to stay in Tignes Les Brevieres

Tignes Les Brevieres is the village situated at the foot of the massive Chevril Dam and at the end of one of the longest off piste runs I know. It’s a wonderful village and the oldest part of the Tignes ski resort. I moved to there in the winter of 2002 and spent the next 6 winters there as I loved it so much.
