Skier or snowboarder

Skier but keen to try snowboarding.

Favourite Ski Safari

Without a doubt the Hokkaido Explorer Ski Safari. I thoroughly enjoyed the Colorado Ski Safari in my first season here but nothing compares to the unique cultural experience of Japan combined with Hokkaido's awesome powder.

Ski/ boarding history

One of the handful of non-skiers before joining Ski Safari in 2014, I've now skied in North America, Europe and Asia and can't imagine a winter without at least one ski trip!

Next trip

TBC.

Interesting fact

Skiing isn't the only active sport I enjoy, I also climb, surf and windsurf.

Top ski trip recommendation

Ski with an instructor/guide as often as possible no matter how experienced you are. Not only will your skiing improve, but you'll find the best spots on the mountain.

Resorts visited in 18/19

Sun Peaks, Big White and Silver Star in the Okanagan for the first time and Whistler for a repeat visit. All at spring so plenty of sunshine and a great vibe in the resorts.

Unseasonable Skiing in the Okanagan
It speaks volumes that, despite visiting the three British Columbia resorts of Sun Peaks, Big White and Silver Star (collectively our Okanagan Ski Safari) during one of their worst periods for snow in history, Ross and I still had heaps of fun, plenty of skiing and even a mini-powder day.

Over Three Metres of Snow in Two Weeks - 2020 is DEEP
If the first fortnight of 2020 is anything to go by, we're in for a treat for the rest of winter. Some resorts have received snow every single day, up to 340cm in total, creating non-stop powder conditions. Find out where to get the goods in our first snow report of the decade.
