"Louise has proved a star contributor; she wrote the most popular feature of the 2016/7 and 2018/9 seasons. The first was a hard article with short notice to travel to the Alps. 

Louise submitted the six-page feature on extremely tight deadline; within 36-hours she had got the interviews and to the heart of the story. She wrote it up beautifully, compellingly. 

Her exception skill as a writer was again evident she she took on the - far, far harder - task to climb Mt Blanc and ski from the top. The story captivated anyone who read it. 

She has a unique blend of steely determination to achieve the near impossible and yet a real intense personal connection with the experience which is a commissioning editor's dream."
