Whitney Thurlow

Showing in: Wanaka

Wanaka Session 13: Wednesday July 4
Wanaka 7:30pm (Doors open at 7:00 pm)




Whitney, originally from Jackson Hole US, has and climbed and skied throughout New Zealand since 1979. Whitney is former Chief Guide of Aspiring Guides and Training Officer of the NZ Mountain Guides Association. He has over 50 ascents of Mount Aspiring and countless Southern Alps adventures. In 1990 he won the World Telemark Giant Slalom Championships and has also won four North American Telemark Championships. He takes pride in cooking fluffy rice in adverse conditions. Whitney has also skied, trekked and climbed throughout the world, more recently on a number of European ski tours.

When he is not in the mountains he is normally hanging out on the wild south coast or Peru, surfing with and without his kite. There will only ever be one Whit. If you have ever met him, you might even have gone round the loop on his extensive repertoire of stories, anecdotes and w[h]itticisms.

Whitney will be telling tales at in our Old fashion Story Telling session.
