Nigel skiing Mt. Washington

Nigel Harrison

A keen skier, back country skier and ski mountaineer, Nigel has travelled thoughout Europe, Canada and the U.S., as well as New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Iceland, Chile, Greenland, Norway and Morocco. He’s also climbed in the Himalaya and skied Denali in Alaska, as well as crossed the Atlantic a couple of times in small sailboats to go skiing in obscure places. His current project is to ski as many volcanoes as possible, and his favourite ski experience to date is standing on his skis watching magma in the crater of Villarica Volcano in Chile. Nigel has been a ski instructor and coach for many years and has lead backcountry ski and climbing parties in several countries.  He lives on Vancouver Island, BC, with his wife and two kids, with whom he enjoys wilderness adventures and mountain biking.

Chelsea Ruben

Chelsea is our Business Development guru; we do what she says (more or less!). She helps us form new partnerships with third party businesses, and helps guide the behind the scenes processes that are so important in making all our systems function, ensuring you and yours have fantastic, hassle free vacations doing what you love. In her personal life, Chelsea loves to ride her mountain bike, which she has done through out BC and the Yukon, and also loves to ski; she’s skied everywhere from Alaska to California, and from New Zealand to Iceland. She’s also done a ton of ocean sailing, and is a highly competent scuba diver, rock climber and, in her less action packed moments, gardener. Chelsea lives with her husband and two kids in Cumberland, B.C.

Aaron Milan

Born and raised in the Comox Valley, Aaron didn’t need to travel very far to enjoy some of the finest snow in Canada. After more than 30 years skiing and snowboarding at so many of the best resorts Canada has to offer, Aaron’s passion for the sport remains, although his body doesn’t always agree. Although his physical abilities may not be what they used to be, his brain is as sharp as ever, and he uses that brain power to ensure that the website you’re currently using is always up to date and working smoothly. When not immersing himself in website design & development, Aaron can be usually be found exploring the backcountry on two wheels of some sort. He lives in Comox, BC with his wife, his daughter and his cat.

Hanne Sorenson

Her wanderlust has taken her to New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia. Eventually Canada called, and she returned to Squamish where she spends her spare time hiking, snowboarding and exploring beautiful BC. She converted a school bus into a tiny house and has been exploring BC’s backroads from old growth forests to beaches to wineries.

Hanne is experienced with group travel, outdoor adventures, city escapes, cruises and everything in between. You’ll appreciate Hanne’s attention to detail and passion for people – this comes across on every booking
