Favourite Ski Safari

The Okanagan Explorer Ski Safari. Some of my best ever days have been spent riding the powder at Big White & Sun Peaks, two of Canadas finest resorts. Add a quick visit to Revelstoke just up the road for some heli greatness too.

Best mountain moment

Two actually, Each and every run heli-boarding in the Chugach Range, Alaska and this year’s Aspen Snowcat Powder Tour, recreational powder shredding at its finest. I should add that the day before I had a three hour root canal so this was a well deserved treat.

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 17/18

Winter Park, Copper Mountain, Aspen Snowmass & Steamboat, Colorado.

Next trip

The BC Cat Ski Safari – Red Resort & Whitewater, British Columbia, Canada.

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.
