Michel Beaudry
An award-winning writer, consultant and big-mountain adventurer, Canadian Michel Beaudry has climbed, skied, or snowboarded on just about every major mountain rangein the world. He is also one of the most prolific storytellers in the snowsport business-his adventure and travel tales appear regularly in publications ranging from Ski, Freeze, Powder and Trans World Snowboarding to Men's Journal, GQ, Outside, and National Geogrphic Adventure. Beaudry's love affair with Whistler dates back to 1974, when a chance encounter with legendary skier Jim McConkey led to a ski instructor's job at the fledgling resort-and a life-changing winter in the Coast Mountains. A graduate in communications from Simon Fraser University, Beaudry lives in Vancouver with his wife, and his two daughters, Maya and Jenna.
