- Currently working as a SnowSkool Rep in Big White
Jamie says, "I was working in Sales in London but managed to secure a 3-month sabattical. SnowSkool Big White was ideal for me: good powder, nice community feel and luxury accommodation (the hot-tub was nothing to do with my decision!). I was also bored of being an ok snowboarder ... I wanted to turn it up a few notches. I had a great time over there and, at the end of the season, Phil approached me and asked if I would be interested in repping a course. Would I?!?!?! My career break was extended indefinitely and I spent the summer season in New Zealand working under SnowSkool's head rep, before returning to Big White in December 2009. My family thinks I am having a mid-life crisis, and, in truth, I do not know where I am headed but I am enjoying myself and that is justification in itself."
