Kirsty Druce - Marketing Executive
Kirsty’s love of skiing began as soon as she could walk when her mother, a ski instructor, taught her to ski. In the winter, she is happiest when racing down the slopes in Avoriaz and the surrounding Portes du Soleil or in the mountains of mid Norway, cross country skiing. Kirsty is passionate about making PowderBeds’ customers aware of the fantastic accommodations and offers available and helping clients plan an unforgettable trip.

Michael Bennett – Managing Director
Michael started skiing at four 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.
