My name is Austin Ross and I am a professional skier and mountain sport athlete from the BC Coast Mountain Range. I began skiing around the same time that I learned to walk and have since spent time all over the world chasing storms and working on photo and film assignments for my sponsors, magazine publications and movie production companies.
Besides skiing, I like to explore the realm of the natural world through free flight on my paragliders and speed wings.
