    Author Information
    After learning to ski in the West Highland Ski Club at Glencoe in the late eighties, Kenny Biggin grew up skiing the Back Corries of Nevis Range in Scotland and has skied there for at least part of most seasons since it first opened almost 25 years ago. Back in the day he was an instructor at Nevis Range with forays to the Alps instructing in Italy during the mid-90s. In 2007 Kenny founded the SkiMountain brand as a way to build his life around his passion for skiing. Latterly, he has been seeking out steeper and deeper slopes worldwide and has skied and toured in the backcountry of New Zealand, Canada, Norway, and of course the Alps. However, he still considers Fort William home. Kenny rarely skis a day at Nevis Range without going 'over the back' or further afield in a massive variety of conditions and reckons he has skied the Back Corries hundreds if not thousands of times.
