Skier or snowboarder:
Most definitely a skier...
Favourite resort:
All and any on a powder day!!!!!
Best mountain moment:
Heli-skiing Whistler 2006 - 3 of the best runs of my life!!!!
Ski/ boarding history:
I lived the dream and spent years doing ski seasons - 11 in total - if you can't ski after that then there is something wrong - over 1500 ski days total so far!!!! Still get over 30 days a season on snow…
Resorts visited in 12/13:
Hemsedal, Åre, Crested Butte, Telluride and Aspen.
Next trip:
Watch this space!
Interesting fact:
If you are up for a challenge then when in Highlands, Aspen, you have to hike the Bowl – it is a fantastic descent and worth the climb.
Top ski trip recommendation:
Whistler still has the top spot and overall comes out as my top all round resort (accommodation, bars/restaurants, village and skiing) - you just cannot beat it.

The Rockies Loop is one of my top Ski Safari trips - choose from 10 resorts (there is even one in the States that can be added in the mix - Whitefish, Montana). The more time you have the more resorts you can ski.

We are introducing a new Safari into the mix - Red and Whitewater - it will give you some of the most challenging inbound skiing in North America – 2 true hidden gems for advanced skiers.
