“I yearn for bigger summits and more wild lines but the powder has been incredible,” he tells us.

In the first four days, Greg has been ski-touring between 9-11 hours a day, covered a daily average of 27km (horizontal distance) but over 4,000m of vertical. In case you're in any doubt over how challenging this is, head over to his Movescount page where you can see his routes and stats. There are a lot of mountain lines.

On the first day he summited Mt Mackenzie, 2,459m, near Revelstoke. His wife and two kids were there to greet him. 
Being able to share my first summit of this challenge with my family was priceless after such an excursion,” says Greg.

“Days 2, 3 and 4 have been days of incredible powder skiing - deep and steep lines through trees, pillows and chutes, so it's been fun.”

Greg was thinking about putting in a rest day or whether to carry on while conditions were still so good.
“It's easy to remain psyched and motivated when every run is so great,” he says.
