My name is George Grey. I am twenty-eight years old and I was raised in the small but delightful town of Rossland, B.C. from the age of three. My parents moved our family over from England to give my brother and I and outdoor upbringing. Rossland is truly one of Canada’s little jewels.
As a youngster I took full advantage Red Mountain…our local ski hill. But Rossland offers so many outdoor activities that downhill skiing and snowboarding were just two of the cards in my ‘stacked’ hand. There was also track and field, mountain biking, rugby, waterskiing, wakeboarding, fishing, and cross country skiing among others competing for my time.
The majority of my competing life was soon to be dedicated to the sport of cross-country skiing.
