FOUNDER

Chris Winter

Chris Winter

Founder of Zero Ceiling, Founder of Big Mountain Bike Adventures

Chris Winter founded Zero Ceiling in 1997 after being given an opportunity to help several street youth from Vancouver have a chance to experience an adventure of a lifetime on the slopes of Whistler.

From personal experience, Chris knew the value of living an active and healthy lifestyle and he knew bringing disadvantaged youth to the mountains would be an amazing opportunity for them. Chris has spent over 20 years living in the Whistler area and he travels the world with his mountain bike and road bike touring companies, Big Mountain Bike Adventures and Cycleventures.
