Astonishingly beautiful ski conditions on all hills at Loch Lomond right now: snow perfectly groomed to powder quality, skis easily cut arcs, sun spring warm yet snow mid-winter cold. This harmony between sun and snow is rare, so get out and enjoy it. March 22, 2013 Ian M.
We have a great team! Honestly, read the bios to find out why Loch Lomond is proud of this group of professionals.

Brady is from Mackay, Queensland, Australia. He started a carpentry apprenticeship at the age of 16 through a school based program that allowed him to finish his senior years at high school as well as his first year of his apprenticeship. Once finished school he carried on in his apprenticeship and finished the final 3 years remaining to become a trade qualified carpenter at the age of 20.
From there he worked for that company for another couple of years doing his business management certification to become a project manager.
