meet the team


WILL & Lara Sussman - founders

Lara and Will will be overseeing the chalet and pastoral care of our Altituders this season.  When they’re not skiing or running a church plant in the mountains, they live by the sea on the Isle of Wight.  Lara and Will attend St James Church, Ryde and have been Christians for about 8 years.  They love going to New Wine, and Focus.  They have 4 children – who are now much faster than them on skis – and 2 golden retrievers (who don’t ski…yet). Sammy, and Harry, the two youngest sons, and the 2 dogs will be joining in Meribel this season.


Harry Anderson - mission co-ordinator

Harry will be overseeing the missional activities run by Altitude this season. Having spent the last season in the Three Valleys, he is looking forward to returning. When not skiing, Harry is working behind the scenes with Will and Lara to get Altitude ready for this coming season. Also, a keen car enthusiast, if not at a car show or restoring his 1960’s Land Rover, he’s probably online finding the right parts for it!

I just wanted to say how thankful I am to you this season. You have been like Angels to me. Thank you for such a welcome, open chalet and the respite that has provided.
