Why I Loved Coachella

Why I Loved Coachella

Being in the hospitality and festivals industries comes with certain perks, like front row tickets to almost any show you can imagine. I turn down most offers as I much prefer spending any free time with my family at our cabin on the lake. It’s a different pace of life. There’s no cell service, so I have time to focus on the...

Getting Involved in Whistler Slo Pitch Softball

Spring is definitely here. While we are pretty happy about hearing the birds chirp and the seeing the flowers bloom, we are even more excited to see the baseball diamonds in prime condition. Softball season is upon us folks! It’s time to kick back and relax in the bleachers as the sun sets and the big lights turn on for the show.

100 Days Skiing Whistler Mountain: The Power of Goal Setting

100 Days Skiing Whistler Mountain: The Power of Goal Setting

It’s been a few weeks now since Whistler Mountain closed for the season and it feels as though I’ve temporarily said goodbye to an old, faithful friend. Whistler Mountain has been my constant companion this past season, just as it was when I was a kid racing on the ski team. After 100 days skiing — a far cry from the handful of...

A Beer Nerd’s Top 5 Whistler Craft Beer Venues

A Beer Nerd’s Top 5 Whistler Craft Beer Venues

Summer is coming. And while skis get hung up and bikes come out of storage, the real questions for Whistlerites are, “What beer am I going to drink?” and “Where am I going to drink it?” Valid questions for a town that loves to party as much as it loves being active. There really isn't anything that tops a finely crafted beer...

Don’t Fall Victim to the Energy Vampires

Don’t Fall Victim to the Energy Vampires

Small town values are alive and well in Whistler, the heart and soul of our business. This is a place where there’s always a friendly smile at the grocery store, a flurry of volunteers for any given event, a nod ‘hello’ on your walk through the village — a special kind of place. Whistler may welcome more than 2.5 million...

We pushed to test out a new format and style of competition for the World Ski and Snowboard Festival (WSSF), and cats out the bag, it was awesome! Watching skiers and snowboarders team up for ultimate steeze as they hucked side by side off twin features into a...

Destination Whistler: A Multi Sport Activities Mecca

Destination Whistler: A Multi Sport Activities Mecca

They say that Whistler is Never-never land for adults, and I’m not going to argue. Whistler locals, Liz and Terry were more than okay with spending a day cramming in three of their favorite sports in front of the camera with me. Apparently, it doesn’t take much to convince mountain lovers to spend all day playing in the mountains? Maybe this is Never-never land…

A Chance Encounter

A Chance Encounter

There’s nothing like an impending 40th birthday to get you thinking about your health and your own mortality.  Recently I’ve been taking stock of life and I’ve made up my mind: I want to be skiing with my grandchildren when I’m 90 years old. It was a goal that became all the more important to me after the recent passing of...
