About Us

My wife and I used to live in Whistler back in the mid 90's...yup...right when snowboarding was first coming of age. That was a while ago now.

At that time, we both had evening jobs in the service industry and all our funds and energies went into  boarding. it was our life. It was there in Whistler where we  both knew that one day, if we could make it happen, no matter where we lived, we would purchase a condo in Whistler. We never wanted to lose that feeling that Whistler provides (both on and off the mountain). Kinda corny sounding but if you have been, you probably know what I mean.

Fast forward to present day. Though we now live in Vancouver, we made good on our commitment to purchase a condo in Whistler. We love it, we use it all the time and hope you too enjoy it.

Have Fun!
