Beginning in 2001 Greg Hill has helped with the evolution of ski mountaineering when he won his first Randonnee race, since then it has been an endless string of firsts. He was the first to climb and ski 50,000 ft in 24 hours. His team pioneered the Northern Monashees Traverse, a 21 day, 21 summit odyssey. He has many first descents in Canada, Chile, Norway, and Pakistan. Well Pakistan's was in a class 3 avalanche that he luckily survived; does that count as a first? He climbed and skied 2 million feet in 2010, climbing 77 summits along the way. This earned him "25 Fittest Guys in the World" by Men's Fitness, plus one of the "Skiers of the Year 2011" in Skiing magazine. Adding to his being listed as one of the "Top adventurers 2006" in National Geographic Adventure Magazine.
In 2014 he climbed and skied 100 km in the Month of March, a backcountry feat of untouched powder. That's an average of 11,000 feet up and down a day! He is also a certified ski guide under the Association of Canadian Mountain guides.
Greg does talks around the world, inspiring and sharing his adventures, as well as the lessons learned on his misadventures (re.Pakistan).
As with everything evolution is key to happiness, progression key to keeping psyched. Lately Greg has started looking at his personal impact on earth. With the recent climate crises, from wildfires to hurricanes, he’s become aware of how the emissions from his air and car travel are negatively impacting the environment. Hill has since dedicated himself to seeking new ways to adventure that do not contribute to climate change. His first major change has been in selling his F-350 super diesel and buying the Chevrolet Bolt, a fully electric car.
