Christian Begin, Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, Bella Coola, BC

A household name for anyone keen on ski & mountain bike films, Christian is the “not so silent” third partner and the eye behind the videos on the website. Christian has been professionally involved in the ski industry for over 25 years. His passion for skiing and the mountain environment led him to undertake and graduate from a diploma course in Ski Area Management, Resort Operation and Marketing, in 1988.

Christian moved from Quebec to British Columbia in 1989, where he began a career as a filmmaker specializing in ski and snowboard films. His work has taken him to heli-skiing operations around the world, and he has created marketing products for Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing, C.M.H., Selkirk Tangiers, Blackcomb Helicopters, Whistler Heli-skiing and Pemberton Helicopters.

In his professional career, Christian has been involved as a producer, director and cinematographer in over fifty ski and snowboard films, and has built a solid reputation as a cutting edge action sports filmmaker. He started a successful production company “Radical Films”, and has earned numerous awards. His most recent film work includes an exciting documentary about Whistler Blackcomb's Peak to Peak gondola.

Christian has a boundless enthusiasm for life that he communicates freely. In fact, he is on a character level with Swede, and has also appeared in many articles and films. These include: the National Film Board’s documentary “Ski Bums”, magazines such as “Outside”, “Powder” and “Ski Press’, and numerous television shows and newspaper articles.
