I’m a skier called Alex from the UK. I’m about to head out to Queenstown in New Zealand to complete my instructor qualifications before heading out to Whistler in Canada for the rest of the Northern Hemisphere winter.
Myself a few mates have just set up a snowsports clothing company called Own The Snow that will be launching fully in the winter.
In the meantime and more importantly for everyone here we have pulled together a FREE community and support service for anyone who is thinking of doing a season.
We found that planning seasons and extended trips can be a pretty daunting prospect but for many that is half the fun. What isn’t fun is trying to sift through hours of unnecessary google searches, blog posts and endorsed messages which raises the risk of paying too much or missing out on getting exactly what you are looking for. Our solution is to give you people to talk to who have actually done seasons and to focus on quality of information rather than quantity.
Let me know what you think of the website and give us a shout if you are heading out to NZ this summer!
