      Tim Banfield (Canada)

      Tim Banfield (Canada)

       

      Where are you from and where do you live now?

      I’m from Halifax/Sackville, Nova Scotia, but I’m currently living in the Canadian Rockies.

      Your favorite mountains?

      The Canadian Rockies and the Bugaboos in British Columbia.

      Your home ski area?

      Mostly backcountry skiing in the Canadian Rockies. If I head to a resort, it is typically Lake Louise.

      What was your first experience with skis?

      I didn’t have the opportunity to ski when I was younger. It was expensive and wasn’t an option, so now I am trying to make up for it. My first turn was a memorable one when I was 31 years old. In 2006 we planned a ski mountaineering trip to climb Mt Logan 5959m, Canada’s highest peak, and I figured I should try to learn to ski first. My first turn was between crevasses on the Athabasca Glacier headwall at the Columbia Icefields with an expedition-size pack. Fun times!

      What are your favorite sports/hobby/activities?

      Backcountry Skiing, Climbing, Trail Running, Mountain Biking, and enjoying the company of doggos.

      Why Majesty?

      I predominantly backcountry ski, the touring lineup for Majesty is great, and the fact that Majesty also has kickass bindings and skins is a great fit.

      How long have you been with Majesty?

      2022-23 is my third season on Majesty skis.

      Any cool accomplishments with Majesty so far?

      Last season I got to ski some fun lines like Mt Diadem in the Canadian Rockies and the Chockstone Couloir. Before that, dug a close friend out during a successful companion avalanche rescue from 4m.

      What are your future plans with Majesty?

      Hopefully to ski more and continue to improve my abilities on and off-piste. I’d love to land a 360 this season.
