Ross Hewitt

A British skier who grew up in the north-east of Scotland, Ross started skiing at the age of 7, initially on piste then progressing on to  mountaineering and big mountain skiing. Today he's a steep skiing devotee. Ross used to compete at a high level in cross country and downhill mountain biking, before throwing himself wholeheartedly into the mountains. These days, having done some of the biggest routes in the Alps his passion hasn't waned in the slightest. Always on the hunt for new lines, this is a skier who likes the mountains in all their guises. Mountaineering, steep skiing, freeriding; it's all a pretext to head off into the giants which surround him, whether it be at home in Chamonix or elsewhere in the world. Ross has enough projects to keep him busy for many years to come.
