Owner operators, celebrating 10 years in Bagneres de Luchon

The Adventure of a Lifetime - Pyrenees Style

Peak Times owners Mike & Annette

It started as a dream, and in 2004 the dream became a reality.........

 

Keen skiers, Mike and Annette had toyed with the idea of one day owning and running a ski chalet it the Alps, Then by fortune they discovered the wonderful Pyrenean town of Bagneres de Luchon."The Queen of the Pyrenees" 

 

The beauty and charm of Luchon and the Luchonnaise soon seduced them, and from that moment the rest is history.

 

For over 10 years Annette and Mike have lived this Pyrenean idyll, where their passion and drive has earned a strong reputation, with many clients becoming long lasting friends.

Annette Jones:

With over 30 years' experience in travel, including the management of a national direct ski business, Annette has developed an outstanding reputation in customer care. Having skied extensively in Europe and North America, Annette has a deep understanding of "what works" and has applied this experience and knowledge with Peak Times.

 

Passionate about food, Annette is recognised as being a discerning chef - receiving numerous commendations from clients both new and old. And whether catering for a group of hungry cyclists or skiers, creating delicious cakes and pastries for afternoon tea - the attention to detail and the quality of food provided is fundamental.

 

Recognition of the reputation that Annette has achieved is reflected not only by the number of returning clients, but also the number of requests for recipes once clients have returned home.

 

Apart from being a keen skier, in recent years Annette has also fallen in love with the bike and time permitting will be seen on the roads of mountains of the Luchonnaise.

Mike Jones:

Mikes Jones, Peak Times

For Mike skiing has been a life-long passion and even today after 40 years on skis, Mike still enjoys hitting the first lift and making fresh tracks.  And when the roads are dry, switching two ski's for two wheels burning kilometre after kilometre of tarmac on the bike.

 

However this is a world apart from his life as a corporate trouble shooter working with blue chip companies in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and America. With an extensive background in business relationship management, Mike has applied his knowledge and experience with the launch, development and growth of Peak Times.

 

Passionate about Bagneres de Luchon, Mike was elected as a "Conseiller Municipal" in 2008, with responsibilities for international relations, sport and tourism. Re-elected in 2014 Mike is now a member of the management board for the ski station Luchon-Superbagneres.

 

Mike is keen to share his knowledge of Luchon and the Luchonnaise, and will regularly be seen accompanying guests on the ski slopes of Luchon-Superbagneres, Peyragudes and Baqueira Beret,. During the Spring, Summer and warm Autumn months Mike swaps his skis for the bike, riding with guests, colleagues and Annette, participating in a number of local and regional cyclosportives each year.
