The Atlantic frontal systems that should have been delivering frequent snow storms were being concentrated in to torrential rain over the north west of England. However, it still seemed like a better option than watching that endless rain in […]

OK, so the times were very unsociable (7AM leaving Liverpool and 11PM returning) but that just meant we could also ski on our flight days! After our […]
