My name is Kye Petersen. I'm born and raised in Whistler, British Columbia. I'm 20 years old and have been skiing my whole life. I travel for ski film and photos in the winter months while skiing at home in between traveling and make ski adventures happen. I love surfing, climbing, mt biking, skateboarding, 4x4 trucking and all other west coast activities. I would consider myself an all around skier. I like doing ski mountaineering, heli/sled access freeriding, ski touring backcountry jibbing or whatever. Just getting out and being in the mountains is what makes me happy.
