Mark Barber – Snowboard Editor

Firmly established within the snow sports industry, Mark is Snowboard Editor of  snow.guide, Digital Content Manager of The Ski Trade, and Content Editor of the extreme sports website extremestunts.co.uk.  Mark is also an athlete agent and looks after professional snowboarders Zoe Gillings-Brier, Jamie Barrow and Nate Kern.

Mark is also an international selling author with his book ‘Urban Legends Uncovered’.  Published in 2005, this comprehensive guide to Urban Legends is still used as a study aide in US Universities.

Jacqueline – Online Editor

Firmly placed behind her desk 5 days a week, Jacqueline is the giant eye of the snow sports industry – nothing gets past her snowhow.

Whether it’s constantly improving our search engine success or spreading the word via social media, Jacqueline is without doubt one of the most influential people in the snowsports industry that people don’t know about.

Occasionally she gets out on the snow herself too, but not very often.


Snow.Guide has some fantastic contributors including Scott Hammond, a Brit residing in Norway who’s a top qualified ski instructor and world class Telemark skier.

Peter Marsh has been covering the Japan’s north Island of Hokkaido for us during the 2014-15 winter and we have enjoyed having a unique take on the skiing there this year.
