    Resident snowboard geek Chris began his love affair with the slopes after leaving school and completing a season in Morzine. Like many of our experts, Chris has acquired his experience through worldwide travel, and counts Patagonia on his list of favourite places to ride.


    Chris has been with Ellis Brigham for five years and is a regular on our annual board test. He's ridden the vast majority of the snowboards and bindings we sell, so is a great source of knowledge when it comes to choosing your hardware.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Glencoe, Scotland/Patagonia, Argentina. "I love how little time it takes to get to Glencoe! Within an hour and a half I can be putting my boots on in the carpark. Further afield, Patagonia in Argentina is my favourite snowboarding destination, without a shadow of a doubt."

    Braehead rider Hannah has been shredding for seven years – four of which have been spent with TSA. While she sometimes ventures into the park, she loves the chilled vibe that comes from just cruising the piste.

    Hannah loves being in the enviable position of having snow all year round. During the winter, she heads all over Scotland in search of the best snow, then spends a lot of her time riding Braehead’s Snow Factor throughout the summer.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    Glenshee, Scotland. "I love Glenshee. It’s huge! It has loads of runs and isn’t too long a drive from home."
