Shane Séguin - (Ottawa-Gatineau)

At the age of 5, my parents helped me navigate the bumps for the first time on Pineault at Camp Fortune in the Gatineau Hills. My passion for skiing really took off once we arrived at Ski Vorlage, the birthplace of my mother's skiing legacy. Snowy days, to long nights under the stars, it was here that I got the itch for skiing and the excitement that came along with it. After several seasons, eventually skiing every resort in the area, I became obsessed with the sport. Over the years, with family and friends, I began to explore more ski mountains, farther from home, discovering many unique, exciting and breathtaking resorts. What makes me excited? Is it the amazing views from the mountain tops, the high speed thrill of carving up the slopes, or a technical curiosity of the ski lifts... one thing is for sure, it's definitely the best way to enjoy the best season of the year, and one amazing life long passion.

I owe my first skiing experience to my husband who introduced me to this great sport at Mont Saint-Sauveur a few years ago. Previous to this ski weekend, I noticed my husband's contagious passion for downhill skiing through his long-time practice of it, as well as his mesmerizing descriptions, videos and pictures of several breathtaking Canadian mountain landscapes that he has had the fortune to experience mainly through his skiing; I had to give it a try. Exposure to these mountainous environments in Canada has also brought back fond memories of my upbringing in Latin America where I grew up surrounded by the majestic Andean mountains. As a result, I fell in love with the sport and the beautiful scenery of the awe-inspiring Canadian mountains.I am looking forward to enjoying many more ski weekends over the course of the years to come. 

Paul Giddings - (Eastern Townships)

I started skiing around 1980 with my elementary school program that would bring us up to the now defunct Glen Mountain near Knowlton in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. I wasn't warm to the idea of skiing at first but thanks to my grade 4 teacher, I am glad that she convinced me to go. The Glen ended up being my second home on weekends and days off from school for the winters to follow. I worked at Owl's Head for 12 years as a liftie in the winter months, and in the hotel during the summers and kept my connection to skiing. When I left Owl's Head in 2001 for a career change, I left skiing behind as well until 2012 when I rediscovered a new found passion for the sport. I enjoy discovering new ski areas, and I am a bit of a ski lift "nerd" at the same time. There is nothing more stress relieving to me than riding a chairlift and putting my two feet on skis at a ski hill for the day. My other interests are photography, music, hiking, and ski history. 

Paul Gordon - (Ottawa-Gatineau)

I got into skiing early, night skiing at Camp Fortune during elementary school. During high school, I had a season pass which caused a few skipped afternoons. I kept up skiing in high school with some straight all camber 210cm rockets when many buddies switched to snowboards during the early days of the sport. After high school though I basically stopped downhill skiing. I was based in Toronto for a while then Yellowknife up in the North West Territories where snow machining was the thing to do. Finally, when I moved back to Ottawa I decided to get back into alpine. I love downhill skiing... why had I stopped! Well, I bought some used Fischer Wateas 78's 181cms and got back on the hill. You don't forget how to ski. Anyway, I'm now hooked. Look I'm not some expert free rider or ex-racer but I like to go fast and I'll ski in any condition. I've switched up my skis a couple times now slowly moving to wider skis with more rocker. I've also tried Telemark skiing. I love skiing, I love being...

Leslie McLaughlin - (Laurentians)

I took my first ski lessons in Moleson, Switzerland at age 8, while living in Lahr, Germany. Returning to Ottawa in 1987, I continued learning with my dad at Vorlage, and through school at Edelweiss until I was 16. After that, I moved to Winnipeg (where it's very flat), and then pursued my academic studies after returning to Ottawa, where I also became a fusion bellydance instructor. As a result, I skied only twice between 1994-2010, the second instance of this being to teach Danny Fresh of Bad Company (BC Recordings, UK) to ski during a 2001 Ottawa tour date! Once I'd completed most of my MA, I picked up right where I'd left off (with my Munari rear-entry boots and 1993 K2s!) at Camp Fortune, which became my beloved home mountain for many years. I skied nearly every day after work, and started travelling to other mountains. In 2012 I learned about Whistler's gaper weekend and my love of skiing and costuming came together (thanks for that, bad santa joe!)! I combined my love of skiing ...

Matteo C - (Ottawa-Gatineau)

I started skiing at the age of 10, and since then have kept pushing myself to improve as my interest in the sport grew. My love for the mountains does not stop at skiing; I've enjoyed hiking and exploring nature since I was a toddler! I'm nowhere near a highly advanced skier, but I have had the pleasure of skiing at many large mountains such as Tremblant, Whiteface, Sunshine Village, and (my favourite) Lake Louise. Usually, you can find me night skiing in the Ottawa area. I can't wait to share my skiing adventures with everyone!
