Born and raised in Melbourne, Billy was first introduced to skiing at age 2 in the Victorian High Country by his dad who ski instructed in Aspen, Colorado. At age 15 Billy represented the Australian VIC State team for trampoline and gymnastics finishing his career in 2nd place at the Australian State Championships in 2013. Since then Billy has translated his skill set into big mountain freeskiing undoubtedly making him an incredibly talented skier.

His home resorts are Mt. Hotham, and Revelstoke Mountain Resort. In the Northern winter, Billy is a part of Head and Tyrolia’s International team where he is exploring new terrain and progressing his skills deep in the backcountry of the Canadian Rockies – filming projects alongside some of the most talented and recognizable athletes in the industry such as:
Sammy Carlson, Jossi Wells, Yu Sasaki, Craig Murray, James Heim, Malou Peterson, Blake Marshall, Jess Hotter, Michaela Davis-Meehan and more.

Billy's Take

PULSE Boot Lab is second to none in constructing high performance customized boot fitting. The level of professional experience here is absolutely mind blowing – could not recommend more highly! My experience with the boot fitting was incredible and the staff’s attention to detail was extremely impressive! Now that I ski in a boot tailored perfectly to my feet, I feel right away how much more responsive my skis are. It allows me to have so much more control in my riding.
