Combining her love of different sports Squash was the first British woman to climb and paraglide from the summit of Mont Blanc having ridden there from the UK on her motorbike.

A dynamic speaker, coach and trainer Squash shares lessons and stories from extreme environments.  Her humorous and sometimes unorthodox outlook provokes thought and inspires you to climb your own mountains, literally or metaphorically.

Salomon Ski Tour Ambassador Squash has spent more & more time exploring the backcountry in the mountains in Tignes where she lives.  Passionate about sharing her experiences in amazing locations she’s teamed up with Snow & Rock and Ski Coach, Floss Cockle, from FREEFLO to do just that.
