When I read Phoebe’s tips on her Instagram feed (profile name: anaverageadventurer) for the first time, many similar moments from my skiing life flitted through my mind. I had to smile, because her descriptions are charming, honest, humorous, sarcastic, just great! And I knew immediately that I would ask her if I could introduce her tips here on my blog. Thank you Phoebe for the nice collab!
Enjoy 11 ski tips by Phoebe! And if you think the tips are average, you’re wrong. Just read!
