This week Olympic snowboarder, broadcaster and podcaster Aimee Fuller checks in to our travel Q&A.
She reveals her favourite ski resorts in Europe and the U.S, reflects on her most treasured Winter Olympic destination and lists the items she can’t travel without…
EARLIEST HOLIDAY MEMORY?
A day trip to Camber Sands in East Sussex, with Mum and Dad. I was full of energy as a kid, loved paddling, building sand castles and eating Calippo ice lollies.
FIRST TRIP ABROAD?
Lanzarote on a family holiday as a child. I went up the side of a volcano by camel.

FAVOURITE WINTER OLYMPIC DESTINATION?
I explored Seoul after competing in the 2018 Olympics in South Korea. A highlight was a cat cafe where you drink tea, surrounded by felines. The food markets are amazing. I ate veggie tofu with kimchi.
THE BEST EUROPEAN SKI RESORT?
Austria’s Tyrol where you can buy one lift ticket and use it in many resorts. Tyrolean food may be a little heavy but it’s great once in a while. Who doesn’t love a Kaiserschmarrn [sweet pancake] at 2,000m?
FAVOURITE U.S. SKI RESORT?
Mammoth Mountain in California. The surrounding pine trees are beautiful, and you can combine snowboarding with a dip in the local hot springs. Perfect after a long day on the mountain.
ARE YOU A GOOD FLYER?
Yes, and I prefer long to short-haul flights as you can put your feet up and enjoy a podcast and a film.

TOP TRAVEL BEAUTY TIP?
Baby wipes so you can freshen up mid-journey. Also extra underwear.
CAN’T TRAVEL WITHOUT?
My sports bra and trainers so I can go for a run. I love to stay energised.
Right now, it’s Thailand.
