Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest Essex spends his summers studying at the University of British Columbia and his winters travelling throughout the Great Pacific Northwest taking in everything it has to offer, usually via sled.
Whether in the streets or the backcountry, Essex enjoys every aspect of skiing. His main focus is on filming and each season creating a diverse video part that shows the different sides of the sport. He’s travelled a lot to film and compete but always finds himself heading back to the Pacific Northwest. He is currently baed in Whistler, BC.
This is Essex’s first World Heli Challenge.
