If there were an award for #1 Powder Hound, Phil Gor would win it. As soon as the lifts start turning for the season, Phil is on the first chair up. He’s so committed to skiing fresh pow that, in 2018-19’s season, he skied 5 Ikon Resorts during February’s 2 week snow storm. We’re almost positive he just skied from one resort to the next. His goal is to ski 12 Ikon Pass Resorts in Canada and the US before the season ends. But even with 30+ years of skiing under his belt and plenty of travel to brag about, Phil is one of the most down-to-earth people we know. He’s always looking for ways to help out customers, gives great advice (ski related and otherwise), and is always ready to lend a hand.

When he’s not skiing in Squaw Valley (or Mammoth, or Alta, or any other Ikon Pass Resort), you can find him as a guide for Sports Basement Outdoors. He loves getting people involved in the outdoors and helping people enjoy new experiences. So, when you see him at one of our Demo Days or on our Tahoe Ski Bus, be sure to say hello!
