A Ski Safari Relic

In Nov 2018 we celebrated Rupert's 15th year at Ski Safari.

Skier or snowboarder

Most definitely a skier...

Favourite ski safari

Powder Safari - Kicking Horse and Revelstoke

Best mountain moment

Ski touring in Whistler in April 2019 with Extremely Canadian – fresh tracks were had.

Ski/ boarding history

I lived the dream and spent years doing ski seasons - 11 in total - if you can't ski after that then there is something wrong - over 1600 ski days total so far!

Resorts visited in 18/19

Kicking Horse, Revelstoke, Panorama, Kimberley, Fernie and Whistler in North America. Kläppen in Sweden and Myrkdalen in Norway.

Next trip

Hopefully Oregon and Tahoe

Interesting fact

If you are up for a challenge then when in Highlands, Aspen, you have to hike the Bowl - it is a fantastic descent and worth the climb.

Top ski trip recommendation

Whether a skier or boarder then get your own gear - a bit of a hassle but so worth it.
