Michael Bennet - Managing Director
Michael started skiing at 4 on the plastic matting of Hillend dry ski slope and soon graduated to family holidays in the Alps and North America. He spent a happy season as a plongeur in the small French resort of Les Orres back in 1990. His washing up days behind him, Michael got a ‘proper’ job which led to him joining Osprey Holidays in 2002. Powderbeds was created by Michael in 2010 after he saw technology was changing the way some people bought their ski holidays. Having skied throughout his life all over the world, Michael is now happiest on a family ski holiday in the Alps with his wife and children.
