Ian McIntosh has built up a reputation over the last few years as a bit of a charger.
His ability on skis doesn’t really come as much of a surprise when you look at his background. Growing up in the Kootenays in British Columbia, Ian was Immersed in the race scene from an early age, and it is easy to see where he got both his love for speed and his technical ability.
He entered the World Heli Challenge and met a fellow Canadian, Pierre Yves LeBlanc who persuaded him to try a season in Whistler. Ian did exactly that and tried his hand at Big Mountain competitions, culminating in a second place at the Verbier Xtreme 2004. Since he has had the chance to film with industry leaders TGR in 2005, and Ian scored the opening segment in ”Anomaly” at first go. Ever since he has been a regular in TGR’s groundbreaking movies. In the Summer, Ian McIntosh can be found mountain biking near Pemberton, B.C.
