Dean keen on the snow

-

NAME: Dean Belle.

AGE: Old enough to know better, young enough to make new mistakes.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE: Outskirts of Mansfield with a beautiful view to Buller.

OCCUPATION: Still working that out, in the meantime run the Delatite Hotel.

DO YOU SKI OR SNOWBOARD (OR BOTH): 45 years of skiing (should be better by now), first snowboard lesson last September during lockdown. (Board down, walk up,..repeat.)

WHAT LEVEL OF SKILLS DO YOU HAVE: Think I ski better than I probably do. Love fast and/or fresh, bumps still don’t like my style.

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST THIS SEASON:

Leaving my new hotel manager to run the hotel, get out of his way, and spend some real time on the mountain.

DO YOU SKI/SNOWBOARD ANYWHERE ELSE: Thredbo (lived there for 9 years), keen to return to Austria/japan and Canada as soon as the world is vaccinated.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE BULLER RUN: Feel good and fast?: Wombat, Steeper and uncrowded?: Slalom Gully, before the bumps grow too big: Tirol down into Cow Camp.

FAVOURITE APRES VENUE AND WHY:

Grimus, reminds me of my time working in Austria, top end hospitalit­y. Will be falling in love with the Moosehead Bar this season, love what Glenn and his team have done there, especially with the live music.
