Pippa Middleton visited one of the world's most exclusive ski resorts in Switzerland to take part in a cross country ski race
Pippa Middleton has visited one of the world's most exclusive ski resorts in Switzerland to take part in a gruelling cross country ski race.
The younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge was seen hand-in-hand with new boyfriend Nico Jackson in the luxury Swiss resort of St Moritz. The pair joined thousands of other competitors on the start line at the annual Engadin Ski Marathon, which covers 45km of terrain.
More than a million Brits take to Europe's snowy slopes each year, but is it vital skiers and snowboarders arrange
sports travel insurance to cover them in the event of accident or injury.
Known as a keen skier, Pippa attempted her first cross country race in March 2012, competing in the 56km Vasaloppet Marathon in Western Sweden with her brother James. Experts deemed Pippa a natural and said her time of seven hours and 13 minutes was "impressive". Pippa set about the Swiss race with gusto and was cheered over the finish line by her parents.
