We met at Loughborough university in England where we graduated in 1999; Renske in Sports Science & Management and Damian in Industrial Design and Technology. Renske went on to work for Barclays bank and Damian worked for Jaguar cars for a number of years as a design engineer. In 2004 we decided it was time to fulfil our dream of running our own business in the Alpes. We bought Chalet Tissieres in 2004 and created our company Ice and Orange and have been living and working in the Alpes since then and are happily raising our family in beautiful Chamonix! It is an amazing valley offering a huge amount of outdoor adventures all year round.
Damian & Renske purchased this chalet in 2011

Chamonix's array of winter activities is simply staggering.

For non skiers there is a great opportunity to try some of the fantastic indoor and outdoor activities on hand.
