Favourite Ski Safari

Tough to pick a favourite – The two stand-outs for me would be the Quebec Explorer Ski Safari, as the East coast of Canada is incredible – they might not be as big as the Western resorts, but the mountains are so much fun! And the Ultimate Japan Ski Safari because come on… it's Japan. Sushi and pow!

Best mountain moment

Heli-skiing Revelstoke and Zermatt in the same season was pretty rowdy...

Ski/ boarding history

On skis since 5, tried snowboarding in 2000 and realised how much more fun can be had... Lost track of the number of days on mountains all over Canada, USA, France, Austria and Switzerland - but must have spent over 3 years in Whistler alone!

Resorts visited in 17/18

Laax, Winter Park, Copper, Aspen-Snowmass, Steamboat and Grossarltal-Dorfgastein.

Next trip

Literally no idea! Getting older, so probably time to start exploring more far-flung places before the knees go. Japan or Kashmir, hopefully.

Interesting fact

I haven't sharpened my edges in 10 years.

Top ski trip recommendation

Ride switch wherever possible. It will help you be a more confident skier/snowboarder. Always take time to stretch!
