Ski/ boarding history

3 seasons in Europe, 1 in New England and 1 in Utah. 2020 will by my 15th Winter season working for Ski Safari, in which time I have skied most of the US and Canada resorts (& Ski Safaris) at least once and seen most the properties we feature.

Resorts visited in 18/19

Whistler, Fernie, Panorama, Kicking Horse, Revelstoke and Kimberley

Top ski trip recommendation

It's got to be Utah with a road trip through to Las Vegas via the Desert National Parks including The Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion. This trip combines the 'greatest snow on earth' with a real adventure.

A Flying Visit to the Brand New 5* Limelight Hotel Snowmass
This winter, I felt it was time for a Colorado refresher and with an invitation to the December launch party of the exciting new development in Snowmass Village, how could I refuse?! This was a great opportunity to get first-hand experience of a stay at the brand new 5* Limelight Hotel Snowmass.
