Ed Leigh

Ed Leigh is best known for his work as a presenter on the BBC's flagship winter sports programme, Ski Sunday. Having started out as a pro rider (sponsored by Burton no less) Ed used his legendary charm to land various jobs in the industry, including a stint at Whitelines, where (legend has it) he worked his way from being a tea-boy to the editor's chair in the space of a single season! Having headed up the BBC's snowboard coverage in Turin, Vancouver and Sochi, Ed now spends his winters blagging himself spots on backcountry trips into the unknown which he has no right to be on.
