Hey I’m Briar! I am super excited to be riding for Volkl, Marker & Dalbello this season!!
A bit about myself… I’m a freeride skier and winter blogger hailing from the mighty Mt Ruapehu where I have been mainly skiing Turoa every season since I was four years old bar 2009 where I was based in Wanaka. The last few years I have been juggling a lot of injuries most notably breaking my back in 3 places and being lucky to still be walking. Rehab for the past year and a half has put a holt on competitions but I have still been getting out an about living the dream of shredding what is New Zealand’s and Europe’s fine mountains in the search for ultimate fun, a perfect drop or piece of untouched pow.
In my ‘real world’ I work as a Registered Nurse to help fund my skiing adventures along side the amazing help I get from my sponsors (TCB Ski Board & Bike, Incline NZ, Snow.co.nz, and of course my parents). This season I will be shredding Mt Ruapehu every opportunity I get between working, with the main goal of coming back to the competition scene in the FWQ stops in the Canterbury clubbies in August/September.
I will also be blogging for Snow.co.nz so keep an eye out for those! Wishing everyone an epic season get out there and have a ball, lets hope the NZ snow gods put it on for us!
A few facts:
Last overseas skiing destination: Stubai Valley, Austria
Weakness: a total sweet tooth (can eat a 2L tub of ice cream in one sitting)
