Bring on the Americans — Whistler’s Reality TV Show Is Back

Whistler must be doing something right. Our mountain town will, once again, be front and centre before millions of television viewers as part of a new Bravo docu-series/reality show. It’s called Timber Creek Lodge, putting Whistler in the spotlight just as it was during last season’s Après Ski. Now, we know there are people out...

What Are We Doing to Nurture Whistler’s Soul?

Vail Resorts’ purchase of Whistler Blackcomb, and more recently the announcement of local layoffs, has left us in Whistler with a collective identity crisis of sorts. What does this all mean for us? What have we become? What do we want to be? What lies in store for us down the road? These are big questions for our little town. Just...

How Can You Have a Positive Impact on the World?

How can you have a positive impact on the world? First find the inspiration. For quite a while now I’ve been wondering how we’re going to make an impact on a much larger scale. How can we grow beyond Whistler and take Gibbons to the next level? How can we affect change in a positive way? A few weeks ago I found my answer. It was...

Getting into Whistler’s Retail Game: Another Gibbons Mission

What do people want to buy in Whistler? That’s a question that we’ve never really asked ourselves at Gibbons. We definitely know what people want to drink. We know what they want to eat. We know how they like to party when they come to Whistler. We’re still learning what they want to buy while spending time here. Now we want to...

Deconstructing the Vail Deal

What does the recent sale of Whistler Blackcomb to Vail Resorts mean to us in Whistler and, more specifically, to us at Gibbons? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself ever since Whistler Blackcomb announced the news in the first week of August. My first reaction was: What a great deal. Hats off to the guys and gals at WB —...

Cheers! Celebrate the End of Summer with Kid-Free Fun at the WVBF

School’s back in session: Adults raise your glasses. It’s time to turn the page on another awesome summer full of family fun. For someone who values that time as much as I do, this past summer was a wonderful few months to see my kids explore and expand their minds outside of the classroom. I feel so lucky that I’m able to...

Season Two – It’s a Wrap

You may have seen the cast and crew around town, capturing footage for the second season of our Gibbons docu-series on Bravo. Filming has now wrapped up and post production is in full swing. While it may not be called Après Ski this time around, the basic concept remains: a network show documenting our high-end concierge business...

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

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...

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...
