Growing up in Australia, Sam traded in sandy beaches for snowy mountains once he left school, spending a ski season in Thredbo before heading to Canada. Quickly finding a passion for split boarding and alpinism, he has spent his adult life pursuing steep ski lines and inspiring climbs all over Canada, USA and New Zealand, soon realising his dream of becoming a mountain guide.
These days Sam splits himself between the Northern and Southern Hemisphere’s as he endeavours to share with clients his ultimate joy of moving safely in the mountains.
