What is your connection to the snow?

I feel most at home in the mountains and I enjoy them most when there is some white stuff to slide around on.

What was your best snow experience?

There are too many to pick just one. A few which come to mind; my first telemark turn, crosscountry skiing in Japan in knee deep snow which was so light it was as though it wasn't there, my first BC trip to the Western Faces of the Main Range in NSW, and so many days which were made perfect by the excellent company regardless of the snow or terrain on offer.
