We are excited to introduce our 2017 BC Winter Ambassadors. This January and February, four ambassadors will hit the road and ski BC’s resorts, giving us an inside perspective on snow conditions and resort experiences. Read on to learn about our ambassadors, and which resorts they will be visiting.
Drawn to the peaks of the Coast Mountains, Leo left the East Coast to seek out new adventures in BC. He is an outdoor filmmaker who challenges himself in the elements, and by pushing the limits of his craft. Currently based in Vancouver, Leo is excited to hit the road and explore BC’s coastal resorts.
Based in Vancouver, Ben is a photographer and videographer who grew up in Kelowna. BC’s interior was the perfect backdrop for endless exploration, which ignited his passion for snowboarding and film. He has lived across Canada, from Quebec to Whistler, searching for the best snow.
Born into a family of hard-charging skiers, Zoya learned to ski as a toddler at her family’s backcountry lodge in the Canadian Rockies. She moved to Revelstoke in 2009, and was instantly drawn to the rugged mountains and endless powder. Zoya soon picked up a camera and started documenting her adventures. She feels lucky to live in a beautiful place where she can combine her love of the mountains with art and creativity.
Leigh and Spring are photographers, writers, and adventure seekers based in the Coast Mountains. After moving from Ireland back to Canada in 2010, they developed a passion for exploring their backyard. Leigh and Spring hope to inspire others to get outside and experience the freedom of being in the mountains.
