Meet Some of Our Writers and Photographers

Ski Canada is noted for editorial excellence. Our writers and photographers are among the best in alpine snowsports media. Here’s a sample of just a few:

Ryan Stuart is Ski Canada’s technical editor and Ski Canada Test analyst. Based at the foot of Mount Washington Alpine Resort, he’s been testing skis, boots, accessories and apparel for more than 10 years. His bylines appear regularly in various other ski and outdoor Canadian and American magazines. Ryan’s east-west background – his family moved from Toronto to Calgary when he was 15 – gives him a unique perspective on testing skis and other gear.

Ski Canada’s technical-editor (ret), and former director of the Canadian Ski Instructor’s Alliance (Western Region), Martin Olson of Golden, B.C., literally wrote the book on ski instruction in Canada. Martin has passed and failed countless ski instructors and has worked in ski teaching for more than 30 years. He bought his first pair of Gresvig Powder Kings in 1964. 

George Koch has travelled to war zones as well as ski hills in preparing the thousands of articles he’s written over his 20-year career. He holds an MA in journalism, was a recipient of a National Magazine Award and continues to write for numerous publications besides Ski Canada.

Former editor in chief of Fall Line Skiing in the U.K., Leslie Woit has had no home base for years but chooses to travel the world in search of the perfect ski destination for a host of magazines and newspapers including Ski Canada.

Steven Threndyle published his first story in Ski Canada in 1987 about flunking the Level II exam. He can write better than he skis. He loves backcountry powder, hates gates, and believes that every skier should turn a non-skier onto the sport. He lives in Kelowna, B.C., with his snowboarding wife, son, and daughter. He is eternally grateful for the fact that his son does not play hockey, so he can go skiing on Saturdays.

Ryan Creary is an editorial & commercial mountain sports photographer based out of Canmore, AB. Originally from the maritimes, he has spent the last 11 years working as a professional photographer and living in the Canadian Rockies. Ryan’s work has appeared on numerous covers and been used by many of the top clients in the industry. Ryan is recognized for his soulful action sport photos and his unique ski culture imagery. His website and blog can be viewed at ryancreary.com.

Ian Merringer is a freelance writer based in Toronto. His favourite part of Toronto is Pearson Airport, where planes often leave for runways near mountains. The former magazine editor (Rapid, Canoeroots, Adventure Kayak) has won National Magazine Awards, has a rolled-up BA in journalism and writes often for The Globe and Mail.

The author of four books — including a collection of short stories, a travel memoir, and two novels — Oakland Ross has a long history as a foreign correspondent in Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. Along the way, he has skied on four continents — five, if you include the indoor ski hill at the Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. He now lives in Toronto.

Originally from Montreal, Eric Berger moved to Whistler in the fall of 1986 after studying photography at the CEGEP Du Vieux Montréal. It was in Whistler that he combined his love of photography with his passion for skiing and snowboarding to create a successful career as an action sports photographer. He was a Senior Contributing Photographer with Transworld Snowboarding Magazine for twelve years and continues to work with numerous action-sports publications and high profile clients worldwide. From the beginning, Eric’s eye has been drawn to raw wilderness as the backdrop of his success. Delivering action poised on the edge of consequence, his images are at once daunting and inspiring. At home in the backcountry and remote locations, his visual merging of high-risk sport, alpine topography and evocative composition have given him a signature look and international respect.

From Gothenburg, Sweden, Martin Söderqvist has been working as a professional photographer since 2003. Fuelled by his love for Big Mountain skiing, Söderqvist’s photos have been published on the covers of numerous international magazines and in advertising across the globe. Martin lives to challenge himself creatively, something that along with hard work has taken him to the top of ski photography.

Henry Georgi is a commercial and editorial photographer based in Fernie, B.C. An icon in Canadian ski photography, Georgi has been a regular contributor to Ski Canada since 1986. In addition to ski photography Henry also regularly shoots industrial and corporate work. Food photography is also a new love, one he would definitely like to explore more.

Chris Christie is a Freelance Photographer based in Squamish, B.C, a gateway to mountain adventure. The positive energy that the mountains evoke in a person was an inspiration for Chris to share his explorations through photography. It also opens all his senses to the environment and enriches the experience looking for that creative angle. His work has been published in many industry leading publications and commercial clients worldwide.
