Gijs van Lieshout (1981) only became addicted to skiing at a later age. But he has more than made up for that. Although he is not a “professional” (he is not a ski instructor or otherwise works in the winter sports world), he can be found in the snow for 30 to 50 days every year. Of course for great skiing on and off the piste, but especially also for testing ski equipment.
Ever since Gijs became involved in skiing in 2010, there has also been an interest in the various skis that come onto the market every year. This fascination initially came from a personal search for a suitable bar. He has since built up a considerable reputation as a “GiGi” as a ski connoisseur at the wintersport.nl forum. Since 2016 he has his own website gigiski.com about everything that has to do with ski equipment. Background articles, explanation of the techniques and construction methods in skis and a lot of ski reviews. Gijs is an independent consumer who takes a critical look at everything the ski brands have to offer. Nice products, but also a lot of bla bla.
Gijs will mainly write about ski equipment. But also about testing skis, in the mountains and even on Dutch indoor courts.
