    Meet the Dream Team: Florentin Guinnefollau

    Florentin Guinnefollau

    What “personal touch” do you bring to SkiUphill / RunUphill?

    My Personal knowledge on gear, a French touch without the moustache, the hat and the “French baguette”.

    What other sports are you interested in?

    Doing a lot of ice climbing in the winter time and dry tooling/road biking/mountaineering in the summer time. Put me on a lake with a STUP and you will make my life wonderful too.

    The Most “Followed” Skier in the Rockies

    Marcus Baranow lives a quiet life in the hamlet of Lake Louise. His summers are spent maintaining campgrounds and his winters are simple: eat, sleep, ski. His nightlife consists of board games or working on one of his many solitary projects. Introverted by nature and isolated by geography, how is it that Marcus became the most followed skier in the Rockies?

    Mallory Richard is from Winnipeg, and she has tips for winter running

    Some say that people from chilly places are reserved, maybe even aloof. Not Mallory Richard.

    When I log in for our Zoom call, the screen reads “mallory + infant”, the “infant” being her new daughter, Clara. Barely four months old, Clara coos in the background as Mallory and I talk. Soon, it’s apparent that Mallory’s quirky sense of humour easily rivals that of endurance runner Courtney Dauwalter.

    Don't underestimate our newest Dream Team member. Behind her quiet and calm veneer, Becca is a true all-around adventurer always looking for the next challenge. Whether it's on rock, on skis, on ice or on the trails, watch for the silent crusher! You'll often find her tea in hand using her extensive experience to talk skis/running equipment or working on some boots in the back. As a result, we now carry a selection of teas as well as coffee in-store ;)

  • Meet the Dream Team: Joel Desgreniers

    Meet the Dream Team: Joel Desgreniers

    Joel is the technical guru behind the products that we carry at SkiUphill. If you follow our blog, you’ll see ‘‘ we carry this product’’ and he is the one behind the ‘we’ by staying up way too late researching, getting up impossibly early for alpine starts to test out new gear first hand and the one with endless technical knowledge. If you have a gear question he is your guy and he is generous in sharing that knowledge with our team at SkiUphill. He occasionally wears spandex for Skimo races but his real thing is ‘’checking out’’ big and steep lines in the Rockies. Meet Joel...
