Age is but a number
85 Year Old Aiming to Ski Every Ski Area in North America
An 85–year–old man is attempting to ski all 700+ ski areas in North America.

John Andrew has now skied 546 areas having recently visited Alaska to ski three centres around the city of Fairbanks, some of the continent’s most northerly resorts.

Andrew started to ski aged 39 and began his mission to ski every area on the continent once he retired.

“My son got me a sort of an almanac with every ski resort in America, so I looked at that and I said, how can I decide where to buy a condo or a place on a ski hill until I've skied them all?" Andrew told local Alaskan media KTVF, adding, “How long does a person live, how long can you ski?"

Patrick Thorne, also known as the Snow Hunter, is an industry expert in all technical developments in snow sports. In addition to his work Patrick is also father and knows the importance and fun of kids on snow
