There are some pretty incredible female shredders in BC, and PJS is happy to announce that one of those fine ladies will be joining the family this winter. Orea hails from New Denver, in the amazing Kootenays of BC. Focusing on skiing from a young age, during high-school she attended the Red Mountain Ski Academy. She has also called Nelson home base, spending some time working and riding for Retallack cat skiing and currently working at Nelson based, Baldface Lodge. If she’s not hanging out at the lodge then you’ll likely find her at Whitewater Resort where, last February, she earned her seasons pass while winning overall female champion in the Kootenay Cold Smoke competition. This year, she’s planning to attend multiple big mountain comps, as well as some filming, and you’ll see her lots via PJS. Welcome, Orea!
Jack was born in Windsor, England and moved to Canada in 2009. He first fell in love with skiing when he took his first family skiing trip to Piztal, Austria at the age of 9. He then started skiing for Hillingdon Race Club in Southern England at age 10 and worked his way into the British Ski Team. He has competed at a Europa Cup standard in FIS and retired from ski racing at the age of 18. He now has converted to Big Mountain Skiing, and is based in Whistler. He will be filming and competing heaps this season across Canada. We look forward to see him working his way up the ranks. Ski: Rossignal Boots: Lange
