SkiBound welcome an Olympic Silver Medallist

Another celebrity staying in Alpe d’Huez

Just another week in Alpe d’Huez and another celebrity staying at the Vallee Blanche! After opening our doors to British Ski-X Athlete Pam Thorburn, the staff at the Clubhotel VB welcomed a British Olympian Sailor. He competed in the 470 class at London 2012 and won a Silver medal... Any ideas who it might be?

Mark Owen, our very own Vallee Blanche Manager, couldn’t contain his excitement when he was handed Stuart Bithell’s Silver Medal. Stuart was taking some time out from the water and enjoying the awesome snow conditions that ADH has to offer (another 50cm is due to fall this week). Keep up-to-date with the snowfall via the resort's webcams.
