Whiterides Airport Transfers, background story
I first came to Les Arcs as a seasonaire for the winter season 2003-04, and instantly fell in love with Alps. I love snowboarding and that is what I wanted to spend my winters doing. Most of us come to this beautiful Alpine area for the love of snow.
I took one season out to travel and do a season in New Zealand, where I gained my snowboard instructors qualification, but knew I would return to France.
I completed several seasons as a chalet host, and as a transfer driver for a different Alps based company.
Each summer I would return home to the UK to work as a truck driver, as I hold a Class 1 Haulage Licence. This work would take me all over the U.K and Europe.
I am also a very keen mountain biker and have been from a young age. I hold a Mountain Bike Guides qualification but now days I just like riding with friends. The single track here is awesome, there are so many great trails just on my doorstep. Being in the Alps during the summer months is amazing.
I quickly knew that I wanted to make the French Alps my home. With my background in professional driving it was an easy decision to set up my own transfer company, which I called Whiterides.
I now live in the Peisey-Nancroix area of the French Alps, full time with my wife and Son. And we enjoy a great work/life balance with working hard but still getting to enjoy the things we love best, Skiing, Snowboarding and Mountain biking. For me this is the perfect lifestyle choice.
