Paddy Graham: I started skiing when I was 11, so… how old am I now? 29 â€“ so 18 years! Damn, that’s a long time! I begun on the dry slope in Sheffield, and skied there until I was 15. Then I did my first season when I was 16, in Serre Chevalier. After that I did five seasons in Laax, before moving to Innsbruck. And I’ve been here ever since! PG: The friends I skied with at the time, and still ski with now [the Legs of Steel crew], moved here to study and to be closer to the Alps.
