Favourite Ski Safari

The Powder Triangle Ski Safari. This safari will have you shredding in both the USA, Idaho and Canada, British Columbia and if like me you enjoy empty slopes, remote resorts, powder for days and awesome road trips, then make this your next trip.

Best mountain moment

Two actually - each and every run heli-boarding in the Chugach Range, Alaska, and this year’s Big Red Cat’s cat-skiing day with my best friend enjoying the best powder of our lives in the untracked, pristine wilderness. 

Ski/ boarding history

Snowboarding for 19 yrs, instructor for 4 yrs in Canada and New Zealand, 4 seasons in Whistler, 1 season in Banff and 1 season in New Zealand.

Resorts visited in 18/19

Red Mountain, Whitewater, Schweitzer Mountain Resort & Myrkdalen.

Next trip

Back to where it all started, Whistler, and probably Stevens Pass.

Interesting fact

I once donned a bear suit and cycled around Whistler’s Roundhouse restaurant at night, followed by paddling a canoe the next day on Green Lake, still dressed as the bear, to please a group of scientists who hoped to see a bear during their summer conference. I provided that experience, only with better hugs and high fives.

Top ski trip recommendation

For the ultimate thrill and experience skiing in Alaska has to be on your radar, and I can make it happen for you, simply incomparable.
