Skiwolf Challenge

This one's not so easy.  
You might need some help figuring out who this is.
So let's work through it together.

Let's see... ski safety straps. Those went out of circulation for good in about 1992.  Those Rossis with the opaque topsheets were an early/mid-80's ski, but they stayed in circulation in the rental fleets of  small, low-vertical local ski areas for at least another 10 years. And bindings with no heel release?  Again, you wouldn't see them at Vail, but maybe at a ski hill in dairy country...? Yellow coordinated ski outfits and parkas with hearts? I know where you could find a lot of those in years gone by. And isn't that leather on the palms of those mittens?  I'm not 100% sure, but I think so. And what do you need leather palms for on your mittens?  For rope tows. Nothing but leather will last more than one afternoon on a rope tow. OK, let's move on...

Sliding glass door to the back deck, and aluminum siding. They don't build houses that way in Sweden or Switzerland. Same mittens as in the previous picture by the look of it, so maybe they weren't leather after all. Bamboo poles. 3-pin bindings. This photo wasn't taken within the past 20 years...

Not a ton of snow on the ground. No huge mountains in sight... Who is it?
