On the morning of February 22, 2014, a group of skiers and snowboarders from across the UK were preparing for a long weekend in the mountains, which would see them cross the country and head north.
The day before they had taken a short break in the village of Wye in Somerset, to visit a farm where the family of two men from South Wales had worked for more than 50 years.
They were planning to visit the farm again and continue the winter holidays they had been planning.
The family, a married couple from Ballymun, had been working on the farm for about two years and were looking forward to returning to the mountains for the summer months.
They had recently moved to the village and they were looking for the best place to live.
The farm had just been sold for £25,000 to a new buyer.
The couple, who were expecting a baby boy, had decided to take a short trip to the mountain village.
They spent the day skiing and enjoyed the scenery.
The next day they were back in the local park and enjoyed another day of skiing.
But it was a different story when they turned around.
A car was heading the wrong way, and the driver was speeding.
The man was carrying a hammer.
When they turned to look for help, they saw that the car had been stolen.
The police had already responded to the scene and arrested the driver, who was later released on bail.
When he returned to the police station a week later, the man had been given an 18-month prison sentence.
The events of the day in the summer of 2014 had inspired the story of Peter Wye.
Peter, who is now in his early 60s, is an active member of the ski community in Somerset.
He has a passion for the mountains and has been skiing for more and more years.
He is currently working on his 60th birthday and is looking forward for a break from the mountains.
“When I was little I had a fascination with the mountains,” he said.
“My mum would tell me about the mountains when she was young, so I knew they were there.
I would spend hours climbing them, and when I was a kid I always wanted to go out and go for a ride.”
As a young man, Peter began to ski and had started his first race when he was aged 14.
He became a competitive skier when he started at the age of 16 and continued to compete in his late teens and early 20s.
In 2013 he was elected as a member of South Wales’ Snowboarder of the Year and was later named as one of the top five in the country.
In 2014 he won the Northern Snowboarders’ Championship and in 2015 he was named the best skier in the world.
But, more than that, Peter Woe is an extremely active skier.
He runs a snowboard shop in the town of Wigton, which is in Somerset and he also holds events on the weekends.
Peter has always enjoyed the mountains as a child, but he says his passion for skiing began in his mid-20s.
“I remember my mum saying to me, ‘Peter, we have to get you skiing’, and I was like, ‘No, mum, I love the mountains,'” he said, adding that the thought of going out for a run and taking part in a race helped to spark his passion.
“Then, at that time, I was doing everything I could to make it to the top of the mountain and I went skiing every weekend,” he continued.
“It was all about getting out there and going for it and making the most of the time I had, and skiing was something that was important to me.”
It took Peter three years of training and dedication to become a professional skier, but it was the thrill of the sport that really drew him back.
“A few years ago I took the opportunity to ski a few times and I remember it was fantastic,” he recalled.
“The first time I got a bit more comfortable with the sport I was riding a big skier and then a big snowboarder and I had to put my feet up to be able to ski, so it was really nice.”
Peter’s passion for snowboarding and skiing started when he left school at the same time as his brother Peter and sister Sara, but was able to continue the tradition of skiing with the help of their dad Peter.
“We were all very much into snowboarding as a kid and my dad was the first to get us started,” he explained.
“He taught us how to ride and taught us to ski.
It was a big thing, but we were very passionate about it.”
The family has been snowboarding since the late 1980s and have also been involved in various skis and snowboarding courses around the country, with Peter being the only member of his family to have ever done a full-time snowboard trip.
“In the early days we were skiing a lot, but then we started to get
