Orry Grant

When Orry isn't dropping bomb-holes he's dropping bombs, literally. He's either busy patrolling at Whitewater Ski Resort, working as an avi tech to keep the BC Highways safe, or just ripping around in the Kootenay slackcountry. You can spot him in action in Sweetgrass Productions' films Hand Cut and Signatures, numerous recent magazines, and whatever drool-inducing ski porn might be in the pipes for this winter

Q&A
  • Favorite G3 Gear: Alpinist Skins - the tip and tail clips (especially the twin tip clips) are the only way to go. The little details make the biggest difference.
  • Favorite Peak: Ymir Peak, BC
  • How Did You Get Started Backcountry Skiing: Building jumps with my friends just outside the ropelines evolved to bootpacking (on skin tracks no doubt) to nearby ridges with no gear and too much confidence. Luckily no one got hurt and soon we were enrolled in some basic avalanche courses.
  • Favorite Backcountry Accomplishment: The first time throwing explosives from a helicopter creating large avalanches was a pretty big moment for me!
  • Best Backcountry Advice: Take advantage of good stability. When conditions permit, send it! If you're not sure about it, there's always tomorrow/ next week/ next year...
  • Skiing bucket List:  Heli-skiing in Haines or Valdez, Alaska.
  • I Choose G3 Because: They're a quality company that is always improving on gear- even their skin cutting tool is revolutionary! Also they're Canadian:)
