Matt tones down his adventurous travels in his sleepy home town of Ucluelet on the West Coast of British Columbia, where he spends his summers relaxing and surfing, and the Canadian winters working as a Heli Skiing Guide with Last Frontier Heli skiing or preparing for his spring ski touring expeditions (if you can call that relaxing!).
