The all mighty great eight questions, or as we call them – the GR8. Diving into each featured skiers favorites, best of’s and nitty gritty – or at least more than their Instagram profile will tell you.
Met our pal Matty Richard or Mathieu Richard if you’re feeling fancy. Matty’s been a staple in the Canadian ski scene for a while now. Originally hailing from New Brunswick, Matty’s called Whistler home for 18 years now but remains a proud Acadian. From coast to coast his name is known for all kinds of ski-related accomplishments ranging from podium titles to movie segments – most recently Numinous. Seemingly always on skis, we finally cornered Matty long enough to ask him the “GR8” questions – surprisingly it wasn’t on a chairlift.
