Ron Andrews, father of Lars and, whether he likes the word or not, patriarch of Whitecap Alpine as we know it. A ‘get thing’s done’ sorta guy with a passion for strong coffee, skiing and fixing things. The kinda person you want around when you’re bunkered up in an isolated mountain cabin, 1,860 meters above sea level.
Calgary Alberta… Quite a while ago…
In rural Alberta… in several small towns. Being outside was so much fun. I’d get distracted going to school some days because I had to check my trapline… I hunted and fished with my Dad a bunch.
British Columbia… A house on acreage in Maple Ridge.
I started backcountry skiing in Rogers Pass, Bow Summit, & the Ice-Fields Parkway from 1963 onwards. Then later all over BC & Alberta with other trips to Alaska and the Yukon.
Favourite past time (other than skiing):
Fixing broken stuff and spending time in high lonesome spaces/places.
What would you do with 10 million dollars:
Fix a lot of broken things…
Favourite lodge jams:
