Marmot Backcountry Adventure Sweepstakes Winner

Drum Roll….the winner is, Nick Southall. Who is this Nick Character, you say? He resides in Hood River, Oregon. Although, he is neither a Ducks or Beaver fan, Nick routes for the UK National Rugby team. You see, Nick is a transplant from the Midlands of England. He attended the University of Southampton and shortly after, he set off to travel the world. Somewhere between Nepal and Australia, Nick fell victim to the spell of his future wife. He followed her to Oregon, where he proceeded to become an Environmental Scientist. Nick works for Inter-Fluve, Inc. They specialize in the design, construction, and restoration of rivers, streams, lakes, ponds and wetlands. Mr. Southall partakes in the surveying and planning of Inter-Fluve restoration projects.



As you can see from the attached photo of Nick, he enjoys levitating and defying gravity on Mt Hood. His means for transportation are some old Tua skis with a Fritschi Diamir Freeride Binding set up and the Scarpa Denali TT Alpine Touring Boots. His playground of peaks entails Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens and Mt Hood.

Marmot, Backcountry.com, and Pro Guiding Service are happy to hook up Nick with an amazing adventure in the North Cascades. Nick is talking with the infamous Martin Volken, to figure out what level they want to take it to on their backcountry adventure. I’m sure Nick will be stepping it up for this trip. Keep an eye out in April, when Nick will be reporting back with some photos and first person accounts of his experience.
