Growing up in Elkford, BC in the Canadian Rockies, Ben has always been at home in the mountains. He began snowboarding at the age of 4 and has spent the last 30+ years expanding his knowledge of the sport.
Ben began working in tourism in 2009 while completing his Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Victoria. He first developed an appreciation for travel while studying aboard in Hong Kong and has since travelled to more than 30 countries.
In 2019, after spending 10 years in marine eco-tourism, Ben moved to Whistler to join the Bella Coola Heli Sports team and to return to the mountains.
Ben now resides in Squamish, BC where he spends his time planning mountain and ocean-based adventures on his motorbike, mountain bike, surf, or snowboard.
