Essential apres-ski reading - a self-deprecating and deliriously funny Alpine adventure

Writer, adventurer, ex-teacher and veteran of numerous travel catastrophes, Will Randall has fallen off donkeys in Spain and out of canoes in the Solomon Islands, but none of this has prepared him for a season as a ski-bum with a posse of raucous, hard-drinking ex-students.
In the charming Alpine backwater of Mont St Bernard, Will's adventures start badly when he spends his first night in a freezing garage under a pile of unwashed socks. Dismally unfashionable and hopeless at skiing, he realises he must compete for the attention of the female population with goatee-wearing, lip-studded dudes fifteen years his junior. And then disasters abound during his stint as a chalet girl for a lodge full of American bankers. But when a Russian oligarch - and hair-raising entourage - arrives in the resort and selects Will to tutor his son, rejection and public humiliation could turn out to be the least of Will's worries...
