BOLD LINES IN BIG TERRAIN:
REMEMBERING TREVOR SEXSMITH

The Rockies community is mourning the loss of one of the most prolific and passionate skiers to hit the backcountry and big mountain slopes in recent years.


 

"Trevor doing his best to look cool and collected after crushing out Mount Forbes and the brutal scree bash back up to the col afterwards," says friend and photographer Ian Holmes. Photo taken on June 26, 2015.

Trevor Sexsmith, who died in an avalanche on Mt. Victoria on September 25, 2016, is remembered as one of the most established ski mountaineers of his time, pushing the sport’s boundaries with bold lines in previously unexplored (most would say “unskiable”) terrain.

With ski descents year-round in the Rockies and nearby mountain ranges, Sexsmith’s fearlessness and drive were both impressive and inspirational. He was equally prolific in logging and sharing footage from his exploits, which can be viewed on his Vimeo feed and blog at Perpetual Ski.

The Rockies ski community has certainly lost a cutting-edge athlete and adventurer too early in the game. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends and fellow skiers.
