I grew up in a small ski town in the North Island of NZ called Ohakune. Its here that I gained the passion I have for skiing and being in the outdoors! I grew up skiing Ruapehu and competing/training in racing. After school, I travelled around a bit to ski in other countries and it was there that I found my love of freeride skiing.
Ive been competing on the FWQ circuit for the last 2 years and have also been competing in Canada! Currently, I am ranked 6th in Europe/Oceania and its my dream to one day make it to the Freeride World Tour.
I want to thank All Sports -Marmot and Head for helping me along with my journey! I absolutely love the gear and wouldnt be able to do it without you guys!

What are Jess'  Marmot Favourites?

I have always had issues with staying warm and dry on the mountain (especially being from a mountain that is renowned for ice and rain), so I decided to give some Marmot gear a go. I came across the Gore-Tex Spire Jacket and Cheeky pants, the Aruna Hoodie and the Randonee gloves. All in all, I am very pleased with this gear! Its perfect for all people who are going to be spending time in the mountains in all weather conditions! I really like the quality, the cut and the no frills approach to all of these items. There is just the right number of pockets and I especially like the placement of them on the pants. In fact the pants have an amazing feature in that they have a removable insulated layer inside them to keep your buns and thighs warm! This is especially good on those really cold days when you are sitting on chairlifts. The puffy is ultra warm and a great layering piece when paired with the shell jacket and the gloves are super waterproof! (even the rain couldn't get inside these gloves).

Spire Jacket

Pros: Ultra waterproof, durable, hood goes over ski helmet, feminine cut. 
Cons: smaller fit, so if you like to layer up in ultra cold weather, then go for a size bigger!

Cheeky Pant

Pros: Ultra waterproof, durable, good pocket placement, reinforcing on lower leg, removable insulation!
Cons: None that I can think of, they're amazing pants

Aruna Hoody

Pros: ultra warm down, packs small for travelling
Cons: must keep dry or down doesn't work as well (marmot has non-down options as well!!)
 

Randonee Glove 

Pros: great fit, liner is ultra soft, super waterproof
Cons: a bit cold in -20 celcius (if you tend to have colder hands, you should go for one of their mitts)

All in all, Marmot's gear has far exceeded anything that I have had in the past! I have put it through its paces in all kinds of weather and it has not let me down. It is well worth the money as its so durable and well made. I would recommend it to anyone!

As a long time runner, I found a love for ultra running here in New Zealand, dabbling in endurance distances.

While maintaining my ultra running, I’m also prioritizing learning new alpine skills to ensure I can move efficiently and quickly through all mountain terrain, whether that be groomed running trails, jagged scrambly peaks, mountain bike tracks, or off-piste ski routes. I want to learn it all!

Skiing is my passion and my life, and I am super grateful for having the opportunity to travel the world competing and meeting rad people along the way.

I've been competing internationally for 6 or 7 years and recently finished my rookie season on the Freeride World Tour 2017 and I am currently ranked 6th male skier in the world.

Now my objective is to go hard in FWT 2018 as well as the FWQ 4* events and see if I can keep this thing rolling on for a while longer!
