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...

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...

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.

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...
