    Skiing Expert


    Scott started skiing at the age of 6, and has completed two seasons in Utah and New Zealand. Since then most of the skiing Scott has done has been across European resorts. He’s been working in ski shops for the last 9-10 years as a boot fitter, and went on the Ellis Brigham ski test last year, so he’s a great person to talk to about the latest skis, boots and bindings, and if you’re buying boots Scott is the perfect guy to fit them.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Morzine. “This is a resort that I know really well, it covers a huge area and there are lots of good snow parks and off piste areas. And the pubs are great!”

    Snowboarding Expert


    Resident snowboard geek Chris began his love affair with the slopes after leaving school and completing a season in Morzine. Like many of our experts, Chris has acquired his experience through worldwide travel, and counts Patagonia on his list of favourite places to ride.

    Chris has been with Ellis Brigham for five years, is a regular on our annual board test and has ridden the vast majority of the snowboards and bindings we sell, so he’s a great source of knowledge when it comes to choosing your hardware.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Glencoe, Scotland/Patagonia, Argentina. "I love how little time it takes to get to Glencoe! Within an hour and a half I can be putting my boots on in the carpark. Further afield, Patagonia in Argentina is my favourite snowboarding destination, without a shadow of a doubt."
