    Hi, my name is Jonathan Curtis and I'm currently completing an Honours degree at the University of Newcastle. I'm exploring the relationships between social media use, trends in marketing etc, and people exploring the backcountry. I'm looking for anyone over 18, who has spent at least a couple of days skiing or boarding outside the resorts and would consider being interviewed about their thoughts and experiences on these topics.

    If you are interested and would like to learn more about the project and what participation involves, please don't hesitate to contact me via email at jonathan.curtis@uon.edu.au or with a direct message.

    If you have partners, friends, family member etc who might also be interested in sharing their thoughts please direct them to, or pass on this message.

    Thanks

    I should add that I'm a keen skier myself, and have been getting outside the resorts for the last 4 or 5 years.

    Hey Belly, thanks for your interest
    Anywhere up to an hour or so, but at this stage I wont actually be conducting the interviews for another couple of weeks.

    I've sent you a PM with some more info.
