People pick the most ipportune times to die; when everything is going along swimmingly and you're feeling that you really have landed with your arse in the butter recently and isn't life peachy? Grief, heartbreak, existential crisis. Life has wrong footed Belle. Running away from it all, she enters the diamond and vomit-encrusted chaos of ski resort life; of abominable sw bums, pushy punters, deep cleans, wayward teens, spliffs, tiffs and sw drifts. Take a crash course in sleazy ski instructors, stale croissants, rants, rapture and Russians. Drink yourself into oblivion, then strap on a pair of skis and head for the hills. A faithful account of one girl's foray into the alpine abyss, Belle de Neige is a scandalous glimpse into the truth about 'luxury' ski holidays and the essential bible for slumdog seasonnaires the Alps-over.
