  • Euan Cameron - Store Manager

    Snowboard & Trekking Expert

    Store: BRISTOL

    Euan has been passionate about the outdoors from an early age: camping, hiking and snowboarding in the West coast of Scotland - Glencoe and Nevis Range being local resorts.

    “I spend as much time as I can in the mountains, I love snowboarding and discovering new places to ride. Camping and walking is my favourite pastime in the summer, relaxing and fun. I also enjoy mountain biking - taking advantage of the great local trails around Bristol.”

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Glencoe “I love riding in the Glencoe resort, It`s just like a natural fun park with natural hits, drops and technical terrain to push yourself. Camping in Glen Etive and the lost valley is just stunning, with breathtaking walks and scrambles all around you.”

  • Ellie Anstice

    Trekking Expert

    Store: BRISTOL

    Ellie has been hiking since she was a child, thanks to her parents’ love of the outdoors and the fact that they took her to many of the UK’s National Trust Parks from an early age.

    She went to University in North Wales, where she joined the climbing club and was able to regularly enjoy the spectacular scenery and walks of Snowdonia. Since then Ellie has completed the Queen’s Scout Gold Award and recent trekking holidays have taken her to Switzerland, France, Northern Italy, The Cotswolds and Exmoor.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Snowdonia. “I know the area really well and it’s got everything; mountains, sea views, a solid climbing history and the highest peak in Wales. Plus, if you can’t face the hike up Snowdon, there’s always the train!”

  • Andi Bundai

    Climbing Expert

    Store: BRISTOL

    Andi started climbing as a child in Urkut - a large gorge in her home country of Hungary - before having a break for a few years and starting again in earnest around 2 years ago.

    She visits local climbing spots like the Avon and Cheddar Gorges as often as possible, but also loves the fact that the The Climbing Academy is based in Bristol, where she goes twice a week to scale the indoor walls.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Portland by Weymouth. “Portland just really has everything as well as being one of the prettiest sights in the South-West.”

  • Rachel Beasley

    Snowboarding Expert

    Store: BRISTOL

    Rachel started snowboarding over 5 years ago, and since then has completed a season in Morzine. She originally learnt to board on the dry slope in Gloucester, and now gets out to the real snow at least once a season.

    Recently she went to Colorado for a backcountry trip with snowboarding brand ‘Dragon’, thanks to winning an Ellis Brigham competition. Rachel particularly likes riding fast mountain slopes and snow parks.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Portes du Soleil in Morzine. “I’d always go back to Morzine. You can’t beat it for size and variety. There is a run to suit everyone, from beginner to expert, and there is some really good off-piste terrain, especially if you’re prepared to hike. Nothing beats a nice cold Mutzig either after a day on the mountain. However, if I got the chance to go back to Colorado, it would be a no-brainer.”
