Skier or snowboarder

Snowboarder.

Favourite Ski Safari

Rockies Loop or Vancouver Island (Tofino is absolutely stunning, a fantastic add on to a Whistler holiday).

Best mountain moment

Heli-boarding in Zermatt, fear and tears mixed into one amazing blue bird day (with views of the Matterhorn in the distance).

Ski/ boarding history

Skied as a child all over Europe and North America, switched to boarding as a teenager. Lived in Canada (Banff and Whistler) for two years in 2013-2015.

Resorts visited in 16/17

Aspen, Beaver Creek, Park City and Jackson Hole.

Next trip

Japan (or otherwise nicknamed JAPOW!).

Interesting fact

Aged 10 I won a snowboard at the Whistler Ski and Snowboard festival for shouting ‘Yahoo’ the loudest (beating two huge grown men!)

Top ski trip recommendation

Never party hard the night before a powder dump, get an early night and drink plenty of water!
