MULTIPLICITY 2016: Jimmy Martinello on Finding Balance and Reconnecting with Our Surroundings

As local as they come in the Sea-to-Sky, Jimmy Martinello has climbed, skied, hiked, biked, paddled and traversed all throughout the Coast Mountains for the past 27 years. He has become one of the most diverse adventurers in this region known for its prolific number of like-minded mountain addicts. Recognized for his spiritual connection to adventure and his humble attitude, Martinello is equal parts athlete, adventurer, photographer and family man who captures bold, passionate imagery while actively participating in a vast array of outdoor pursuits. Martinello calls Squamish, BC home, where he lives with his beautiful wife and two amazing children.

“Jimmy is an incredibly inspiring individual with a contagious, positive light that shines through everyone he is with,” says Olympian Julia Murray. “He’s always stoked to be with friends in the wilderness and he’s an incredible teacher of what it means to live life in the moment with the people he’s surrounded by in the epic setting he’s typically in.”
