Every year Pete travels around his favourite ski resorts to paint all the stunning ski and snowboarding scenes.
In 2020 Pete was fortunate to fit in an extensive ski trip to Flaine, Verbier, Argentiere and Chamonix before the resorts closed but had to miss out a return to Cortina to photograph the Dolomites. Late 2021 Pete has pencilled in an early trip to the French & Austrian Alps and a later trip to Colorado or Italian Cortina. “After cancelling 5 trips in the spring 2020/21 I am not taking any chances by actually deciding where to go yet and will make a last minute dash once I see the first lifts turning. The car is still sitting on the drive packed and ready to go at the first sign of snow and lifts turning.

2019 saw a return to the stunning slopes of Obergurgl and Kitzbuhel, with a later tour to Tignes and Val d’Isere by Ski Train stopping off to spend some more time in Les Arcs and La Plagne in one of the quieter times of the year.
In 2018 Pete skied Zermatt and Saas Fee extensively which has produced some stunning Ski paintings especially of one of his favourite mountain railways.
In 2017 one of Pete’s Ski tours of the Alps visited St Anton in Austria and Wengen in Switzerland, later extending the trip to Morzine and Avoriaz with a side trip to Grande Massif and Megeve in some truly admirable conditions. In previous years Pete has skied and snowboarded his favourite resorts Verbier, Tignes, Val d’Isere, Meribel, Courchevel, Val Thorens and Chamonix. Over many years Pete has managed to visit a few of the many US & Canadian ski resorts of Aspen, Colorado, Breckenridge, Heavenly Ski Resort, Mammoth Mountain, Keystone, Mt Bachelor, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, Vail & Beaver Creek, Whistler Blackcomb. Pete is planning to visit some more US resorts in the future.
