Skier or snowboarder
Bit of both, prefer snowboarding for the cool factor (and comfy boots).
Favourite ski safari
It has to be the Vancouver Island Ski Safari, some of the best skiing in the world in Whistler, then a few days sampling all the food trucks in Vancouver and then finishing with some whale watching on Vancouver Island - sounds like paradise.
Best mountain moment
My first experience skiing in the European Alps. Having learnt to ski on small ski fields in New Zealand, the scale of European resorts was astounding.
I started skiing when I was a kid in New Zealand, switched to boarding as a teenager.
Resorts visited in 18/19
Stowe, Jay Peak, Tremblant, Stoten & Myrkdalen
I’m applying for permanent residency in the UK in December which means I can’t leave the country for 6 months – no trips for me unfortunately! However, I will be taking a trip to NZ in August 2020 to do some skiing then!
I’m a fully qualified Olympic Weightlifting judge.
Top ski trip recommendation
Book ski school - no matter how good you think you are there is always more to learn or tweak, even if it just a refresher at the start of your holiday. You’ll thank yourself for it!
