It's hard to keep up with Pippa Middleton.

When she's not climbing mountains or competing marathons, she's every inch the Chelsea socialite attending exclusive galas for causes close to her heart.

The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister opted for understated elegance at the Disability Snowsport UK ParaSnowBall 2016 in a muted grey midi dress with an embellished collar.

Pippa, a columnist with Waitrose magazine, is fresh from a hike-ski of the Rosablanche pass as part of the Glacier Patrol race near Verbier, Switzerland. It marks her third skirt trip in recent months and Verbier was also the destination of choice for Kate Middleton and Prince William's first family ski holiday in March.

Meanwhile, Pippa's romance with hedge fund manager James Matthews is said to be going from strength to strength. She recently moved into his €21m Chelsea townhouse.

In October, Pippa split with long-term love Nico Jackson, who lives in Geneva, after three years of dating, blaming the long-distance as causing too much strain on their relationship.

Insiders previously dished to E! News that James, whose family owns the renowned Eden Rock hotel in St Barths, is more suited to Pippa's social lifestyle.

"[He's] more social and outgoing than Nico, loves society events and celebrity events. Nico never really enjoyed the spotlight. James revels in it," the initial source shared. "Pippa loves socializing and, with James on her arm, there will be plenty more of it."
