Ross Hewitt

I grew up in Scotland and started skiing aged 7. My skiing has morphed somewhat from racing and resort skiing into ski mountaineering and onto Big Mountain Skiing. The ability to travel fast and light through the mountains on technical terrain really appeals to me requiring the right mix of the mental, technical and physical abilities to achieve that long dreamt about project of an aesthetic line on a big peak.

Skiing has taken me around the World to Chile, Argentine, Alaska, Baffin Island, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France, Japan, New Zealand and of course Scotland. My steep skiing experience including descents of several Alpine steeps such as the the Matterhorn, the Himalayan West Face of Mont Blanc, West Face of the Eiger, Frendo Spur, Brenva Spur, Mallory, etc, aswell a few trips to ski in Alaska. Exploratory skiing lights my fire and I have done 30 first descents in Baffin alone, 4 in Norway, and 2 major new lines in New Zealand. However, the West Face of Mont Blanc is the ultimate line.
